Thanksgiving 2016 Recipe Round Up!

Wait, it's Thanksgiving??? I don't know about you guys, but I feel like the last two months have FLOWN by. Looking back, I do realize I've been busy in all the BEST ways... exploring and learning and working on some awesome projects that I can't wait to share with you.

That all being said, I'm looking forward to taking the next few days to slow down, spend quality time with my family, sleep in, and (of course) cook some delicious food.

I'm fortunate that my family is *very* open to trying new things and eating lots of veggies, but I am also a firm believer that healthy food CAN and SHOULD taste every bit as delicious as traditional fare. Every year I go through my favorite blogs, websites and cookbooks to find holiday recipes that will both WOW my family's taste buds AND that I can feel good making and eating. Here's what I've bookmarked this year:
