Homemade Thanksgiving!

Since my husband is working on Thanksgiving, Friday, and Saturday, we decided to have Thanksgiving yesterday.  One of my friends called it Franksgiving.  Indeed, my friend.  Indeed.  If you're a last minute kind of person and haven't picked what recipes you' like to try, look no further!  I've compiled all my favorites here for you.  And you won't be disappointed!

Have a happy Thanksgiving!


These rolls are, hands-down, the best I have ever tasted.  Even my mom gave up her cherished crescent roll recipe that she's been making for years and has converted to this recipe.  It's amazing!


No fanciness here- just your traditional delicious stuffing.  It's my favorite stuffing recipe when I want the good ol' classic stuffing.

Cranberry Chutney:

Fresh Cranberry Chutney

This cranberry chutney is easy to make, and it is made the night before.  I'll never eat another cranberry sauce!  It's absolutely delicious.

Sweet Potato Casserole:

Sweet Potato Casserole - Made with mashed roasted sweet potatoes and a crunchy pecan topping with an ooey gooey melted marshmallow center!

These potatoes.... This was my favorite dish on the whole table!  It's fantastic.

Magical Mashed Potatoes:

What table is complete without mashed potatoes?  These are light, fluffy, and full of flavor.  Top with your favorite gravy, and you're good to go!

Pumpkin Chiffon Pie:

It's the pumpkin pie that has taken over the traditional pumpkin pie!  Everyone loved it, and my pumpkin-pie loving husband said that it was much better than the best pumpkin pie he has ever had. Now, that's a compliment!

Chocolate Truffle Pie:

Sweet & Salty Truffle Pie Recipe

For those that aren't a fan of pumpkin pie, this is a delicious alternate for Thanksgiving.  It's rich, chocolaty, and delicious.

Layered Turtle Cheesecake:

This cheesecake will blow your mind.  It is every bit as delicious as it looks in this picture that the Taste of Home photographer took.  :)

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese and Caramel Frosting:

If you've got time on Thanksgiving morning to devote to a show-stopping breakfast, these are your ticket.  They were wonderful!
