Friendsgiving

It’s finally November which means pilgrims, pumpkin pie, and another day closer to being socially accepted when you’re caught jamming to the J Biebs Christmas album.

Your college apartment is your home away from home. Your roommates quickly become your family, and obviously you have to celebrate our favorite holiday of all, Friendsgiving. We’ve put together some delicious recipes below to start another tradition you’ll be thankful for year after year.

Salad

Apple Cranberry Walnut Salad – Creme De La Crumb

Crisp apples, dried cranberries, feta cheese, and hearty walnuts come together in a fresh Autumn salad. An easy side dish for any favorite meal! You see that gold bowl in the pictures here? It’s new. I flew out the door in a panic the other day when I realized I didn’t have a bowl for the salad I was about to photograph.

Turkey

 

Citrus and Herb Roasted Turkey + Turkey 101

We’ve got less than 72 hours until the big day. Until party time. Until it’s socially acceptable to start drinking prosecco at noon. Until it’s time to stuff our faces with stuffing and turkey and gravy and potatoes. Until we all have to un-do the top button of our pants.

Sides

Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds

Finally I have a few recipes up the sleeve to share. Although, to be honest, these aren’t so much recipes as food combinations we’ve been having for dinner. It’ll have to do, though, until something more inspiring comes along. I’ve had a string of culinary disasters in the kitchen recently and while part of me…

Candied Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole – Creme De La Crumb

Creamy sweet potato casserole with a crunchy candied pecan topping and toasted marshmallows. Growing up I had… interesting ideas about food. In some ways, I was very diverse. I’d try just about anything once and I ate my fair share of strange things as the result of not-so-friendly dares from my big brothers.

Corn Casserole

Corn Casserole is one of my favorite sides during the holidays or at potlucks during any time of the year. It is the easiest recipe to throw together and can be prepared with various ingredients mixed in. Me? I like it in its simplest form, with mainly cheese, corn and corn bread.

Biscuits

 

Homemade Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

These homemade cheesy garlic biscuits take less than 30 minutes and taste even better than the ones from that seafood restaurant! Send me to a deserted island with a lifetime supply of these biscuits and I’d be happy. They’re a homemade copycat version of those seafood restaurant biscuits, but I think these ones are even better.

Dessert

Apple Crisp – Tastes Better From Scratch
