Fantastic Fall - Thanksgiving Eve Recipes

Yesterday, walking to the building where I work, I was passed by a man.  We had just had our first snowfall of the season - officially, at our airport, almost two feet (about 60 cm) which accumulated over two days.  Although the early parts of it had melted because it was above freezing at first, there was well over a foot left on the ground.

The man muttered "When is it going to stop?" and I thought to myself, March?

Winter has begun.

So, here in the Binghamton area of upstate New York, we will have a white Thanksgiving. It's time to settle down, do some cooking, and be thankful for all the good things in our lives.  It's time to share some recipes with you.

Even snow.

First, what shouldn't you make? Alice Gerard has that all covered for you.  In fact, she has side dishes you may want to try out, too.

Today, I will share the link to my easy, homemade cranberry sauce.  It's so easy even I can make it!

Here's a delicious apple crisp recipe - especially if you are watching your weight.

And finally, the easiest chocolate cake in the world.

Tonight, my spouse and I will start our Thanksgiving preparations.  If you are in the United States, may you have a most enjoyable holiday.

Day 23 of NaBloPoMo.


  1. I'll pass on the cranberries. Liked the apple crisp.
    And, you should try MY sweet potato mix

  2. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. March. Perfect answer. Too bad you didn't say it out loud.

  4. We actual had our first snow in our yard today. But never blog about it. Yes I heard that East coast got hit hard.
    I love fresh cranberries, there better then the ones from the can.
    Coffee is on
