Thanksgiving Menus & Other Fall Recipe Favorites


With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted to share two sample Thanksgiving Menus I crafted from some of the most delicious food bloggers’ recipes online! All of the courses are packed with Fall-friendly foods like squash, pumpkin, and cranberry, and are quite healthy, with a few vegan and whole wheat options. Then below my menus I share some favorite Fall breakfasts because many of us will have family visiting, so to be the perfect host means to have something more than cereal for the AM! Hope these recipes inspire you to add something new to your table!
