Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

Cooking and baking with my kids is one of my favorite family activities. We have a lot of fun (as seen in the video at the top of this post)! The holiday season is a great time to prepare food with the kids. Below, are my favorite Thanksgiving recipes from my cooking and recipes blog Foodie City Mom. Enjoy!

Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dishes:

1. Baked Macaroni and cheese

2. Quick & Easy Mashed Potatoes

3. Quinoa Tomato Medley

4. Fresh String Beans

5. Healthy Whole Grain Stuffing

In addition, one of the most popular Thanksgiving side dishes is green bean casserole. My family doesn’t like it though, so I remixed it over at Hidden Valley Ranch. As one of their parent panel members, my Bacon Ranch Sautéed Green Beans is featured on their site this month. (Check it out…it’s SO good!)

2. “Best Apple Pie Ever” recipe (Recently, I have been topping it with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.)

7. Vegan German Chocolate Cake
