Another Saturday, another slew of seasonal recipes I’m throwing your way. Are you overwhelmed making Thanksgiving menu plans? Have you even started to think that far? There is so much to choose from! Where to even begin? I’m sharing two Thanksgiving sides on my blog next week, so definitely check back if you’re all like “omg what am I making for Thanksgiving this year??” I realize you probably don’t talk like that. But it sounds a lot like me.
Anyway. Hi! I’m in St. Louis this weekend on my book tour/visiting my sis.

I was in NYC earlier this week and it was crazy amazing. Over 65 readers stood in line to meet me. I know I say it all the time, but I can’t get over this! Cannot. There are so many of you! I appreciate the love and support so much. More than you will ever know. It’s what helps get me through all this travel! Hugs and hugs and hugs.
Moving along. Let’s talk Thanksgiving. Some recipe ideas for you:
Creamy green bean casserole. This is my husband’s favorite Thanksgiving side dish and I love making it completely from scratch. No cans of anything. Pure goodness!
I know toffee is typically a Christmas candy, but I love making this salted dark chocolate version around Thanksgiving. A break from all the pie, if you will.
Don’t tell my pecan pie I just said that.
And speaking of dessert, how about some brown sugar butterscotch cupcakes?
Completely worth every single calorie.
Guess what? I made my salted pecan pie tarts earlier this week and brought them along with me to my NYC book signing. Everyone loved them and, like me, really enjoyed the sweet/salty. Fun, adorable, love ’em.
Old-fashioned sour cream crumb cake for breakfast, please and thank you.
And if you like biscoff (cookie butter!) spread, I have just the recipe for you. No cookie dough chilling, no mixer, lots of vanilla, white chocolate chips, and of course… Biscoff. Here are my soft and chewy Biscoff white chocolate oatmeal cookies.
Q: Have you tried any of these recipes before? Thoughts?
Q: Any fun plans this weekend?
Right this way for adventures and redwoods pictures!
