Happy almost Thanksgiving! If you’re anything like me you’ve left the planning until the very last minute. Like very last as in right now today! I rounded up some of my favorite recipes from holidays past that you can whip up today or tomorrow. Just be sure to swing by the store or get an Instacart order ASAP to get all your ingredients. And because y’all are so sweet and I am so thankful for you, I put dessert first.
Fall is my absolute favorite, favorite time of year! The smells, the colors, the clothes, the food and oh those leaves! Those gorgeous falling leaves! I get so excited from about October 1st until January each year. The holidays and the weather always get me all cozied up and in a great mood for seemingly no reason everyday!
And every year in about August I start pinning and mentally planning all the gorgeous recipes and tablescapes that I will try out that season. And each year without fail I get through, um maybe, one or two of those before the season comes and goes! I get so caught up enjoying everything around me that I forget I make my own pumpkin pecan bread or gingerbread house.
This year fret not though! At least I planned ahead enough to take a gander at this gorgeous apple pie! I spied some delectable apple rose tarts peeping into my Pinterest feed and I knew that this is the year that I must try it out myself! After reading and researching lots of blogs and techniques on how to make the perfect apple rose I decided on this simple take. Easy enough to get some little hands to help out this season or if you’re me a nice little task while catching up on the latest Real Housewives. Yes, you heard that right, I am total fan. Guilty pleasure right here. I can’t get enough of those shows!
