My Thanksgiving vicariously lived through Pinterest

The Ott’s are all going to be celebrating Thanksgiving apart this year. :(  I am so sad.  This also means that I won’t be cooking up a yummy Thanksgiving dinner with them either.  I kept seeing all these recipes on Pinterest the other night that I won’t be able to make!  So I am sharing them with you… Here are my must have recipes for Thanksgiving… courtesy of Pinterest and fellow bloggers.

The Glitter Guide posted an elegant DIY Thanksgiving Tablescape idea…  I love this centerpiece because it’s not your typical Thanksgiving orangey and yellow colors!  And I love the gold accents!  This is how I would have set the table….


Doesn’t this turkey look divine? Roast Turkey with Black Truffle and White Wine Gravy.


I love Martha Stewart’s Simple Stuffing… I always add cooked sausage to this recipe!


Thanksgiving is not Thanksgiving without Sweet Potatoes Casserole… with little marshmallows on top!


Call me crazy… but I have to have this jello salad as a part of my Thanksgiving dinner!  It’s better than cranberry sauce.  Thank you to the Wald family for introducing it to us Otts.


This has been a recent addition to my Thanksgiving must haves… Corn Souffle. Oh, so yummy.

Did anyone notice that I did not include a healthy, green vegetable dish??? No green beans or brussels sprouts or spinach?? I say, “no, thank you” to those in my imaginary Thanksgiving!

And don’t worry… I definitely did not forget dessert!  I have to have apple pie!  Milly would always whip up apple and pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving!

Why isn’t today Thanksgiving ?!  I’m hungry….

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish??


  1. It all looks so delicious, Allie! I wish we were all going to be together for Thanksgiving….but it won’t be long till Christmas and then we will be together. Can’t wait! xo
