Favourite Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 17, 2010



Some of you have been asking for me to round-up my favourite Thanksgiving/holiday recipes in one spot and I thought that was a great idea given that Thanksgiving is right around the corner.


Hopefully this will be of help for you as you plan your holiday meals this season.


I will also include a link to this page at the top of my recipes page so you can find it whenever you need it!



1) Itty Bitty Pumpkin Garlic Knots


These rock my world.

[I now have a huge, huge craving for these.]

2) The most delicious gravy I have ever tasted (and it’s veeeeeegan!)


All of our guests enjoyed this gravy!


3) This Ain’t Grandmas Sweet Potato Casserole


Sorry grandma, but this was the crowd favourite at my Thanksgiving dinner party in October! Wholesome yet incredibly delicious.

4) Holiday Soup For The Soul


One of my all time favourite soup recipes. It is very filling too!

5) Maple Spiced Quinoa with Cranberries, Apricots, and Almonds


Very festive, light, with a great crunch and array of flavours.

6) High Protein Garlic Mashed Potatoes


Healthy, high in protein, yet delicious. No one will know what ingredient is hiding in there!

7) Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chickpea Salad


Mmmmmm. That is all. Mmmmm.

8.) Easy Maple Cranberry Sauce

This was my first time making cranberry sauce and I was surprised at how easy it was! It took me about 15 minutes start to finish and just a few ingredients. Recipe found on PDF in Luxury Dinner Party post above.

8b) Maple Baked Beans


My favourite baked beans.


9) Spiced Bar Nuts


Great with beer and the good ‘ol hockey game.



10) Wedded Bliss Soft Ginger Cookies 


One of my favourite cookie recipes.

11) Pumpkin Pie Brownie Cupcakes


and a variation in ‘pie’ shape…

12) Pumpkin Pecan Brownie Pie (PDF) from this post.

This was the favourite dessert at my Thanksgiving party, adapted from the amazing Isa Chandra Moskowitz.



Need I say more?


13) Pumpkin Gingerbread with Spiced Buttercream


This was also a crowd pleaser and it’s one of Eric’s all time fav desserts.

14) Pumpkin Butter Oat Squares with Candied Pecans


15) Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cookies


Chocolate and peppermint is a dream wintery combo in my opinion!


It has been way too long since I made this breakfast pie.

16) Pumpkin Spice Lattes


17) Buttery Apple Streusel Oat Squares 


18) Comforting Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal


19) Gingerbread Overnight Oats with Soft Ginger Cookie Crumbles


20) Fruit and Nut Energy Bites


21) Festive Red Quinoa Breakfast Bowl


Gift Ideas

22) Homemade Pumpkin Butter 


23) Apple Streusel Butternut Blondies


24) Energy Bites 


And there you have it!

Oh my gosh, Angela, best post ever! I started opening the individual recipes in new tabs to review, but then I realized I was doing it for every one and the list kept going…so I’m going to review it later because if I keep reading, I’ll be late for a Thanksgiving meal I’m about to have with new friends in Australia.

As always, photos made me drool….so ready for that meal now! <3

Hello Angela,

I would really like to make the vegan gravy and the cranberry sauce for a vegan Thanksgiving potluck, they look so delicious, but when I click on the link it leads me to another post.
I don’t see the recipes anywhere, could you post them or let me know if I am doing something wrong?

Thank you!!

Hi Angela! I love your blog!!

I made “This Ain’t your Grandmother’s Sweet Potato Casserole” for my Thanksgiving and my family LOVED it! They were amazed how good it was (even without the traditional marshmallows!) and it was my mom’s favorite dish for the day!

Thanks for sharing! :)
