A Tastespotting Thanksgiving

I love Tastespotting.  I was introduced to it by a dear friend of mine several years ago.  It really is one of my go to recipe sites.  There is very little I have made that has either been a disaster or tasted bad.  Tastespotting is a visual food board and has been around before Pinterest.  You can discover so many wonderful blogs through Tastespotting. 

I love Thanksgiving because I love to eat. :)  I love homemade rolls, sweet potatoes, green bean casseroles, every dessert (well, almost) and of course stuffing!  Notice how I did not mention turkey or pumpkin pie?  Yeah, I am not a turkey eater nor do I love pumpkin pie.  I think both are gross.  I thought I would try my hand at creating a Thanksgiving dinner spread since I'm not cooking this year.  Wait. . . I never cook Thanksgiving dinners.

Dinner Table Decorations

This picture was posted in 2009, and I believe it is a timeless table setting for Thanksgiving.  But then again, isn't that what you expect from DwellStudio's founder, Christiane Lemieux?  I have to admit that up until the last few years, gold was never really a color I liked in home decor, but that thought has definitely changed.

And she even created a kid's table topped with activities!  How thoughtful, I love it.

  1. These all look great! I tried a new stuffing recipe that will DEFINITELY be my go-to recipe for stuffing--sage pork, apple, and cranberry dressing. I'm with you on the turkey and almost there on pumpkin pie--the only pumpkin pie I like is Costco's, with LOTS of canned whipped cream on top (and the sides)! Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving!
