Thanksgiving TURKEY & EGGNOG Shout-Outs: My Favorite Go-To Links

Over the last few years, I've found a couple of go-to links that I just love and love to share when it comes to Thanksgiving prep. THE TURKEY Are you brining and cooking your own turkey this year? Look no further than The Pioneer Woman's tried-and-true brine and turkey recipes: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/my-favorite-turkey-brine/ http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/roasted_thanksgiving_turkey/ Suggested schedule for turkey: Turkey (brined and cooked at home) Thaw Sat/Sun in fridge, brine Mon/Tue/Wed, cook it depending on eat time/weight of turkey (see Pioneer Woman's recipe for turkey, you'll understand what I mean)- basic rule of thumb- 1 lb/turkey per person, 1.5-2 lb turkey/person for leftovers...


Thanksgiving Paleo GF Stuffing

Thanksgiving Paleo GF Stuffing

Stuffing, oh stuffing..... although this one isn't stuffed into the bird but baked and served on the side, it is Oh. So. Good. This is a great one to integrate for meals other than Thanksgiving, as it's so versatile. Boil up and shred up chicken or brown and season ground beef/turkey/bison to add into the mix once it's baked sometime... such a great cold-month staple meal! Enjoy! PALEO & GF THANKSGIVING STUFFING By Adrienne Neale, Holistic Made Easy Suggestion: prep Wed and assemble and bake Thurs, double recipe if you're having more than 4-5 people for leftovers.  Breading Ingredients: 3...


Thanksgiving Paleo California Vegetable Casserole

Thanksgiving Paleo California Vegetable Casserole

My oh my, this one was HEAVENLY and my FAVORITE casserole dish growing up (notice all the caps.... this is serious, y'all). This dish is third generation, thanks to my beautiful Mama and Yaya Swartz... but it relied on processed things that rhyme with Schmelpita and Fambull's dean of crushdoom toop.... And now those things make me feel oh-so-sick and my symptoms last for days. This one swaps out the processed stuff with yummy, creamy alternatives and there's zero after-effects! It's Paleo minus the cheese.... if you can't do cheese, don't fret- it's amazing without it, too! Enjoy!   THANKSGIVING...

Thanksgiving Mushroom Gravy

It's all gravy, baby! This is one gravy I can actually enjoy... most make me want to gag because they look and smell like the fake stuff the school cafeteria served up on turkey manhattan Tuesdays.... this one is made fresh with mushrooms, butter, minced garlic and other yumminess. Give it a try for yourself! THANKSGIVING MUSHROOM GRAVY By Adrienne Neale, Holistic Made Easy   Suggestions: make ahead Tues/Wed and refrigerate, re-heat on Thursday; 1/2 cup gravy per person- some like it, some don’t… better to have too much than not enough.   RECIPE: 3 packages white mushrooms, thinly sliced...
