Favourite Things Friday Vol 86 – Stuff to Make for Thanksgiving Dinner

It is hard to believe that this weekend is Thanksgiving! I swear I was just basking in the summer sun drinking a cold Mojito and now I am trying to decide what to make for Thanksgiving dinner‼ CRAZY!

I know everyone has their Thanksgiving favourites. Here are a few of mine!

Now if you aren’t into making a whole giant turkey you could just whip up this Simple Roasted Chicken. It is tender and juicy and tastes fantastic!

If you want to make life really easy, might I suggest this Stove Top Chicken? One pan and you get your chicken and stuffing!

Side dishes are a MUST with Thanksgiving dinner. You always need a good bun, especially for turkey buns the next day. This Bread Maker Bun recipe is perfection!

I personally can’t have Thanksgiving dinner without Homemade Dill Pickles. This Clarke family recipe is the best‼

Why buy cranberry sauce is a can when you can whip up this absolutely amazing homemade version. It is WAY better than anything you can get from a can!

My in house taste tester loves brussel sprouts. This recipe for a roasted version is fantastic!

My absolute MUST HAVE is my Grandma Clarke’s Hawaiian Salad. Make it, I promise you will love it.

I usually buy a pumpkin pie from the Safeway for dessert, because you can’t go wrong with pumpkin pie. But this year I am trying a new recipe, Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares. They look AMAZING, and I can’t wait to try them.

What are your Thanksgiving must have’s??

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday full of family, friends and food!



  1. Mmm, I love your Hawaiian salad! My must haves are mashed potatoes and lots of gravy, preferably without any Teflon in it! And pumpkin pie of course! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Mmm...wish I could be there. Yummy. Most of what you will have I will too so it should be almost as good. But your dessert sounds amazing and I cheated and bought tray buns. Lol. Love your post. Happy Thanksgiving JB ~ love you!!!
