Spinach and Artichoke Dip

To me, Thanksgiving is all about easy comfort food. Especially if I am hosting, I don’t want to be worrying about anything last minute. The name of the game is to totally enjoy myself and hopefully not stress.

I love to make food that is tasty but also can be made ahead. That goes for appetizers too - no reason to be making any dishes that require last minute attention. Enter my spinach and artichoke dip. I took the traditional spinach and artichoke dip and lightened it, by adding more spinach and artichokes, and the result is one of the tastiest dips ever.  Also make sure to serve this with toasted crunchy baguette slices.

Three Cheese Mac & Cheese

We serve mac-n-cheese at any and all holiday dinners. I know that some might consider that blasphemy but I love it... because it is mac -n-cheese! It is the perfect comfort food and when you make it homemade, it is a total game changer. Looking at the food that I like to eat, especially at the holidays, I tend to skew Southern. I am not sure why, I didn't really grow up in the South but when it comes to food, Southern food is my total comfort food. This mac-n-cheese is no exception.

Crispy Skillet Potatoes

Next up in my Thanksgiving recipe series are my crispy skillet potatoes with garlic and herbs.  I am not saying not to serve mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving, but I am saying that these are delicious and a total showstopper. If you can’t imagine not serving mashed potatoes, you can also just make them for dinner and throw a fried egg on top, just saying, because this recipe is a keeper.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Since I am hosting Friendsgiving and Thanksgiving this year, I have started planning my menus and these pumpkin cheesecake bars with toasted marshmallow topping are front and center at both. I have been making pumpkin cheesecake for the past 5 Thanksgivings and without fail, it is always a crowd favorite.
