Best Thanksgiving Recipes Roundup.

I can’t believe how fast Thanksgiving snuck up on us!! Before we know it will be Christmas!!! YIPPEE!! P.S. Our Christmas tree is already up, yes, I said it. I thought it would be so fun to have our Christmas tree up for Thanksgiving, and my mom agreed… so last weekend we got decorated for the Holidays 🙂

For this year’s Thanksgiving, we are so excited to be inviting some new dishes to make an appearance on our table. For one, my mom has been gluten free for a year and a half and vegetarian for a year…..so we needed some new dishes!  It was so hard to narrow down the dishes for Thanksgiving day, but luckily no one said anything about narrowing down the dishes for the blog. Here are some great recipes we have found on the web….without further adieu… our 2014 Thanksgiving Contenders:

P.S. It’s not too late to switch up your Thanksgiving menu. 🙂
