Thanksgiving Recipe Round-up!

With the big day less than a week away… I’m putting alllll my favorite Thanksgiving ready recipes in one place – this post. Its feels like a pretty perfunctory blogger thing to do. But, I love reading recipe round-ups on other bloggers’ sites.  I get ideas from those posts all the time!  Since you are here, we probably have at least food in common.  So, here you go: a collection of my favorite Thanksgiving appetizers, salads, vegetarian sides, and desserts! Appetizers Honey Candied Pecans Thanksgiving is a heavy meal!  So I keep the appetizers to a minimum.  Since, I’ll be making these salad toppings, why not make extra for snacking!…
