Best Thanksgiving Recipes #Weekend Bites

I'm not expecting any harp strings from you, but readjusting to the family schedule with jet lag has been harder than I expected. The kids' activities and our holiday plans did not take a pause for Paris... not complaining, just trying to get focused again.


Our dishwasher broke this week...why do high cost appliances always break before the holidays??? I've been cooking light in order to keep clean up to a minimum, so this week I am sharing with you a few of my family's favorite Thanksgiving time dishes.

I can't get enough pumpkin this time of year, so I love finding healthy savory dishes like this. Great side or vegetarian main course.

I'm still a New England girl at heart and the idea of coming home to a hot bowl of chowder sounds fantastic. Excellent crockpot recipe.
