Cedar Planked Salmon With Maple Glaze: This was one of my favorite special meals my mom would make growing up. It’s definitely a festive crowd pleaser! Try this with well sourced wild salmon.

Lentil Loaf: Instead of Turkey, try this lentil no-meat loaf! I made this for the community here in Hawaii and everyone LOVED it. I have loved all of Nora Cooks recipes. I’ll be making her apple crisp too!

Food 52 Brussels Sprouts Stuffing: My roommate in grad school made this recipe and I freaked out about how good it was the whole night! Definitely a must-try!

Oven Roasted Root Veggies: Plain. Simple. To the point. Everyone loves them. Do it.

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes : Have you ever tried cauliflower mash? Which is basically just really well seasoned mashed steamed cauliflower. This is a great hybrid of cauliflower mash and mashed potatoes. Not just cauliflower. Not just potatoes. It’s even better. It’s both! 😋

Quinoa-Pomegranate Holiday Salad:: This one is so versatile. Use whatever nuts, seeds, dried fruit, fresh fruit, and herbs that you like or that are in season. And if you really want to add a little salt or a little olive oil I won’t hold it against you.

Perfect Cornbread: Nuff said.

Mushroom Gravy: Who knew mushrooms could create such a good gravy! Don’t knock it till you try it!

Pumpkin Soup:: Simple and make it how you like it.

5 Minute Cranberry Relish: Usually cranberry relish has lots of added sugar. This one is sweetened naturally with dates!

Easy Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake: An oldie but goodie, these are such a crowd pleaser of a healthy dessert!
