With Thanksgiving just 2 weeks away, I thought it was time to start figuring out what I will be making and what Thanksgiving recipes I want to use this year.
Of course, I love to share the fun with you as well, so today I've got over 25 fantastic Thanksgiving recipes for you. I've got everything from the making of the turkey to appetizers to side dishes to some fun ideas for the kids and of course desserts! Then when you are done feasting I have a few ideas for those delicious leftovers.

Finally, I had to add this recipe. It is a sentimental favorite. I remember making these with my Aunt (who is pictured in the post), she texted me one year to see if I had enough leftover potatoes to make these. Sadly she isn't with us this year and I miss her so much. I will be making extra mashed potatoes and we will be making mashed potato doughnuts this year for sure.
