On a typical Thanksgiving morning, I often find myself trying to cook/bake/prep an entire spread at once, and this year I’m determined that the holiday will feel more like an actual restful holiday, and less like the frantic final round of Iron Chef…
Don’t panic, because this Thanksgiving you don’t need to run around all morning making 12 recipes at once! This week’s meal plan is devoted to make-ahead recipes so you can spread the work out, and get your Thanksgiving homework done ahead of time. That’s right, get to these recipes one-by-one whenever you can find the time, and then put them on ice until the big day arrives.
This bright and festive Cranberry Jello Salad is a favorite for holiday dinners. Made with raspberry jello, crushed pineapple, and fresh cranberry relish, this sweet and tangy side dish is easy to love.
You are going to fall in love with every layer of this No Bake Pumpkin Toffee Icebox Cake! Everything from the cinnamon spiced pumpkin, to the cheesecake layer, to the crunchy toffee chips make perfectly luscious dessert!
