Thanks for including my post!


Some delicious looking dishes. Some I would like to try, but after Thanksgiving. I know people like to do different foods and use spices that weren’t available to the colonists. I guess I a just an old traditionalist. Some of the dishes are too gourmet sounding for a traditional holiday. Just an FYI, ‘balsamic vinegar” usage should be used with caution. People who are taking certain AOI inhibitors cannot have ANYTHING that is fermented. Even in miniscule amounts. people have suffered cardiac problems.


What a delicious collection of recipes! I’m now craving those brown sugar squash bites! thank you for posting the image and link to my chestnuts w/ pearl onions. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
