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.
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.
My favourite baked beans.
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.
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
23) Apple Streusel Butternut Blondies
24) Energy Bites
And there you have it!
What are your favourite Thanksgiving or holiday recipes?
Also, does anyone have any holiday tea recommendations for me? I am looking to buy some holiday teas!
This whole post is incredible! It’s not warm here, but I’m sure it’s warmer than where you are…so you can TOTALLY come and stay with me ANYTIME! ;)
I have no words! Seeing these all in one post, it’s amazing! I’m in awe! You go, girl!! :)
Food overload! I want to try it all! :)
But the Maple Spiced Quinoa with Cranberries, Apricots, and Almonds caught my eye! :)
I want to make that breakfast pizza sooooo bad!! I think you are pretty covered in the recipe area :-) haha….I always go to teavanna for my teas, such a HUGE selection!
I almost ate my computer those pictures look so amazing. So much deliciousness on one page can’t be legal, can it?
You weren’t joking about the “it will make you hungry” part! I was drooling the entire time. It all looks phenominal. This year some of my friends are organizing the 2nd annual Kegsgiving for those that won’t be able to go back to their families for Thanksgiving.
I am vegetarian and in charge of the apple crumble but I think I will surprise them all and make a modified version of apple crumble from your recipes.
P.S I’m from Montreal, Canada but now live in Los Angeles, CA and we definitely have a warm fall/winter so far! Come down and visit haha!
I wish you were close to a Trader Joe’s because they have a lovely cinnamon vanilla black tea. I’ve been enjoying it every day with a splash of almond milk! Deeeelighful!
Oh lord!!!!!! I kept scrolling down thinking “ok next one I’m sure I won’t like”! Angela these are all great, thank you for taking the time to share this!
hahah this made me laugh!
My absolutely favourite tea is called “Good Earth” tea. Available with and without caffeine. Naturally on the sweeter side, DELICIOUS iced too.
Wow! Ok, I found your site because someone at the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival in SF was talking about you. I love your site! Your desserts are delicious, unique and impressive :)

i’ll definitely be making that sweet potato casserole on thanksgiving. and i’ve got to try those pumpkin garlic knots, too!
i have two questions about the soft ginger cookies which I’ve made several times and love. Does anyone have a brand of ginger to recommend? They seem to vary wildly in intensity. Also, there used to be two version of this recipe and I was using the one not in your wedding post can you put both in the recipe archives? Thank you and this blog is the best cooking instruction I’ve ever had!
I dont have a brand of ginger to suggest but I think this is the post you are looking for :)
WOW!!!! I am a long time reader but I’ve never commented, I had to de-lurk for this one. Yummy is all I have to say every. single. picture had me salivating. Every time I would scroll down I would say OMG I have to make that. I am amazed by you and your culinary skills cause Lord knows I have none.
Congrats on the foodbuzz readers choice!!!!(I voted for you)
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
Stop, stop! It is too much! Ok don’t stop, seriously this is amazing. I have clicked on so many links and cannot wait to make them! HUGE grin on my face – excitement. Thanks lovely.
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?
they are in an attached PDF in the original post. hope this helps!
You are incredible! Wonder woman? Um, I think more than that! Geez, what an amazing post of foods! You have so much talent: culinary talent, photography talent, and just an amazing person. I’m definitely using some of these recipes- I KNEW I could come to your blog to find just what I was looking for… besides inspiration.
And you did so much work on this! Thank you for providing the recipes too!

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! :)
