Thanksgiving 2013!!

This year has been a whirlwind so far.. Too many good things happened and some not so good things also happened. But I guess that’s just how life works.

I am writing this post to express my gratitude and sincere Thanks for being there for me through the years that this blog has been a part of your life. Some of you have seen me literally grow up in this field of blogging and bringing tasty bites to your dinner table among other things.

You have let me be and “eaten” up pretty much what ever I’ve made for you. You gave me feedback, all of which was much appreciated and so welcome.

You are a part of my world, my life and I want to say Thank You for just that.

This year, my family and I are blessed to be preparing for multiple Thanksgiving dinners. We are suggesting a “Potluck” as the theme to savor new and classic flavors everyone brings to our table. I can’t wait!

Here are my suggestions for Thanksgiving this year. Hope you get inspired by this collection.

An appealing table sets the mood!

Pumpkin and cocoa bread
Have a favorite pumpkin bread recipe?! 

Turn up the volume with a handful of chocolate chips and a 
couple of Tbsps of cocoa powder! Warm, sweet and chocolaty goodness!!

Autumn squash and coconut soup


Oven roasted green beans, gently tossed with caramelized onions and 
roasted almonds.
Dressed with Olive oil, a pinch of mustard , salt and black pepper. 
Holiday rice salad!!
Brown rice tossed with pomegranate seeds, cranberries, 
fresh apples, parsley and toasted almonds.
Crunchy, sweet, flavorful and oh so nutritious!
Eat warm or at room temperature. 

Saffron and pumpkin risotto!
Warm and full of Holiday cheer!
Filling and flavorful.

Slow Cooked apples!
Let the Crockpot make dessert for you !

And as you prepare for a much needed and a well deserved break this Thanksgiving, whether it’s with family and/or friends or even alone, I want to encourage you all to take a moment to “Thank you” for being you.

Hope you all have a safe and a wonderful Holiday.

Always remember; Food is a great leveler. Respect it, Cherish it, Share it.
