Hi! You may be a long time subscriber, a new friend from Stephanie Weinert’s Mother & Home, or just found your way here via my Substack account, Chasing Logos. Either way, I am glad you are here! I have wanted to share that you have been missing updates or recipes, it is because as my kids have grown and I stopped having long hours home, it has been harder to spend the time in the kitchen. I have also returned to my passion before I started having kids and food blogs, and am getting my PhD in the Humanities/Philosophy. I am so happy to be back in academics and hope to write and teach. I think God wants to feed our bellies and souls, and in all of it we can find the good, the true and the beautiful.
If you are missing recipes, please subscribe to my Substack and I hope you will get fed in a different way! In the meantime, there are so many recipes here, and my family still cooks from THO all the time, so I hope yours can too.
In the meantime, here is a list of things that we have loved sharing at our Thanksgiving table. Happy Thanksgiving! xoxo Katie
For the Turkey:
When your favorite food blogger tells you this is her go to every year and it never fails her, you try it.
For the Stuffing:
Giada had me at Ciabatta. And chestnuts. And pancetta.
For Great Starters:
From Ruth Reichl’s memoir Comfort Me With Apples, this is one of the most fun recipes and it is ah-mazing.
These look SO pretty and sound totally delicious. We recently had a cheese board when we ate out that just had a simple red wine poached pear to cut off and that is also a simple idea that can wow guests.
These are just mandatory at our family holidays. Sounds weird and simple but tastes like a cheesy, butter bite of heaven.
For the sides:
One of my favorite THO recipes, I keep these ingredients on hand all fall so I can whip it up for a special weekend dinner. It looks so pretty.
I subscribe to NY Times Cooking and when this popped in my inbox I started to obsess. Can’t wait to try it.
Love love love these potatoes. Simple and delicious. Also intrigued by these ones too….
Oven space can be so limited, it is such a smart plan to have your mashed potatoes warm in a crock pot.
I make this every year for my husband who loves cauliflower and tries to eat low carb. It always ends up being one of my favorite parts of the dinner.
This is how I make Brussel sprouts at our house (minus the sun-dried tomatoes). My kids love the little bits of pancetta.
This is getting me so excited for Thanksgiving. Of course Cream of Mushroom soup is FINE but I love the idea of making it from scratch. Also just discovered Onion Rings filled with Green Beans if you want to really wow your people.
We are on a big kick of having fresh dinner rolls, which are amazing for making sandwiches the next day. These are making my mouth water, and will be whipping up a batch of Alison Roman’s Dilly Rolls the day before Thanksgiving.
Ina Garten’s favorite pumpkin dessert is her Pumpkin Roulade with Ginger Buttercream
The Pioneer Woman’s Carmel Pumpkin Gingersnap Cheesecake looks like perfection.
Then again, this S’mores Sweet Potato Cheesecake does too…
My kids would love these Candy Turkeys
And as we think about being thankful I want to say I am so thankful to you for reading this blog, and for all the enthusiam, support, and messages you have all sent me about recipes you’ve made or things you have loved from this little blog. It’s such a labor of love, and I am so thankful to share it with all of you.
Hope you have a wonderful day with your families, Happy Eating!! xoxo Katie
