American Thanksgiving dinner ideas

Super easy Apple Cranberry Crunch – is a lovely holiday dessert and perfect with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream

Spectacular Apple Torte if you’re looking for the ‘wow’ factor and only you will know how simple it is to make.

This Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake improves with age so you can make it a couple of days early and keep it in the refrigerator until your guests arrive for Thanksgiving.

I promise you will not have any leftovers if you serve Spicy Applesauce Cupcakes with Brown-sugar Cream-Cheese Frosting

 The kids will be clamouring for one of these little gems. The big kids will probably want in on the action too!

Rather than serving a time consuming yeast bread, you can whip up this Sun-dried Tomato and Cheese tea bread in minutes!

For family members who lean to simpler bread, these Buttermilk Biscuits will do the job!

Instead of mashed potatoes, Potato Gnocchi with Crispy Sage will have everyone marveling over your cooking skills!

Brussel Sprouts with Crispy Pancetta is one of my family’s favorites!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends. May your celebration be filled with loved ones and the joy that they bring. It will be an honour, if any of my recipes make it to your Thanksgiving dinner table.

  • I’m glad to see this. I was just about to comb thru some of my favorite cooking sites for ideas about baked goods. I’m a baker. And this inspires me.
