Thanksgiving Recipe Round-up

Thanksgiving Round-up 2015

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, giving thanks, and… dessert! Over the years we have compiled quite the list of fall-thanksgivingy treats. Whether you are just beginning, in the middle of, or finished with preparations – or even if you’re not in charge of the food festivities at all this year, we hope the recipes below give you some inspiration and get you in the holiday mood.


Lemon Ginger Zinger Doughnuts with Honey Butter Glaze

Ari recently hosted a brunch bridal shower, for one of her best friends since high school. While brainstorming about what we could bake, we decided on making two different kinds of cupcakes. What breakfast/brunch isn’t complete without cupcakes? We agreed that coffee and tea flavored cupcakes would be appropriate… and delicious! Salted Caramel Cocoa Coffee Cupcakes were a shoe-in for the coffee flavor, but we had to do some investigative work into what the bride’s favorite teas were to decide on the second flavor.


Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal Cookies


We believe that there are some combinations that were just made in heaven, and one of those is the pairing of blueberry and lemon. The idea for these cookies came courtesy of a head-strong toddler, who insisted that the chocolate chips in her mini-kitchen’s fake plastic chocolate chip cookies were, in fact, “Booberries.”  We immediately thought, “That’s a great idea!” and off to the kitchen we went. . . . and a blueberry lemon twist on the traditional oatmeal raisin cookie was born.
