I’m back with more Thanksgiving recipes today! In case you missed Monday’s post (a delicious one might I add), 19 other bloggers and I are sharing our favorite recipes with you as part of what we call a Blogsgiving Dinner. Today is dedicated to the main dish and to my favorite part of the meal: the side dishes! At the bottom of this post are tons of delicious Thanksgiving foods from my blog friends.

I made Bacon and Cornbread Stuffing for our virtual dinner! Because what is Thanksgiving without a huge helping of stuffing. Some (aka TheBetterHalf and me) might say it is the best part of the meal.

I am starting the week off with an amazing appetizer that is perfect for Thanksgiving. Butternut Squash Crostini with Ricotta, Cider Caramelized Onions, and Fried Sage. That is a mouthful of a title, so I shortened it to Butternut Squash Crostini. But I almost didn’t because I didn’t want to short-change any of the ingredients in this recipe – they all work so well together and are integral to the delicious and addictive flavor of this crostini. It is a gorgeous appetizer that will be the star of any Thanksgiving appetizer spread!

Dad’s Apple Crumb Pie

This Apple Crumb Pie is my absolute favorite apple pie recipe – straight from my Dad’s recipe collection! A true classic pie, topped with tons of crumbs!

Today is the final day of our Thanksgiving Week! Are you full yet? I hope not, because it is time for dessert! Somehow no matter how much I eat on Thanksgiving, there is always room for dessert. And of course it is Thanksgiving, so dessert has got to be pie. Unless you are TheBetterHalf – he likes chocolate chip cookies for Thanksgiving dessert, which I think is just weird. But when he has Thanksgiving with my family in Thanksgiving, I humor him and make cookies and pie.

In our family, the pie of choice is apple pie – but not just any old apple pie – an apple crumb pie! And it tastes even better, because it is made by my dad. Now I think this recipe is technically my mom’s, but my dad has been making it every Thanksgiving since I can remember, so I think it is safe to call it Dad’s apple crumb pie….

Candied Sweet Potato Casserole

It is Thanksgiving Week, Day 4! Time for some potatoes, because what is Thanksgiving without at least two types of potatoes.  I love traditional mashed potatoes (smothered in gravy of course) but since that recipe is fairly basic, I decided to make sweet potatoes. There are so many ways to prepare sweet potatoes, but I went for a candied sweet potato casserole topped with glazed pecans!  You could top this one with marshmallows instead if you are so inclined, but TheBetterHalf is not a marshmallow fan.  He actually said “It’s Thanksgiving, not summer camp.” So that’s that.  …
