Thanksgiving Cocktail

A-pear-ently Apple

Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I have started gathering recipes, and this Pear Apple Cocktail is on my list. It’s only 2 ingredients and one of my new favorites. It uses Amoretti Pear Martini Mix which you can find on Amazon or Amoretti. For other great cocktail ideas see my Pinterest board “Cocktails Calling my name”.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with Greek Yogurt

I have been wanting to create a new pumpkin bread recipe since it is my favorite thing to serve on Thanksgiving morning. This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with Greek Yogurt is my newest favorite! It’s so easy to prepare that my daughter, Leigh, did most of the work on her own. Feel free to omit the chocolate chips if you like, but it’s not overly sweet. I also used chopped pecans, but walnuts would work great too (or you can omit them if you have nut allergies). Use nonfat Greek yogurt for best results (Chobani or Fage work great). This also makes a great holiday food gift, and I plan to make a lot more! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy your holiday 🙂

Rosemary Citrus Turkey Rub for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is only a few days away, but some of my running friends were talking today about the best ways to prepare their Thanksgiving turkey. I mentioned to them, “Why not a turkey rub?” They all liked the idea of preparing a turkey rub. This Rosemary Citrus Rub is too easy for words. With only 5 ingredients, you can prepare a super easy fresh and healthy recipe for your holiday Thanksgiving turkey. I love the lemon zest, garlic and citrus combination on my turkey. I like to use this rub for chicken recipes and pork too. I am getting so exciting about Thanksgiving this year. Please leave a comment and tell me how yo make your Thanksgiving turkey. I’m always looking for new ideas.
