Technically, it’s less than two weeks since you are receiving this on Friday, but who’s counting! Thanksgiving generally sneaks up on me since our anniversary is TODAY!
It also happens to be Mr. Fresh Cooky’s birthday. Yes, we were married on his birthday – 11.11.2000, I’ll let you do the math, 😉 what an easy anniversary to remember!
What’s in store this week — Thanksgiving Classics! A new turkey breast recipe you will drool over, and after testing many recipes, tweaking and finally getting it nailed, an amazing Pumpkin Custard Pie that is so smooth and creamy — no canned milk in site!
I republished my turkey giblet gravy recipe with a video — silky smooth, no drippings, make-ahead, tastes incredible gravy recipe. Read on for what readers are saying about it! And finally, an easy, oh so tasty weeknight dinner!
Thank you to our Veterans!
And it’s Veterans day too, I never want to forget our veterans; their sacrifice, rigor, precision, dedication, discipline and unselfishness — a humongous thank you to my Uncles, brother and nephew who all have served our great country, and to all near and far who still serve our country, with honor and valor. I am so very, very grateful!
Just yesterday I met an older gentleman while waiting at a Dr’s appointment, he had served our country for 23 years, in both the Army and then the Air Force. We had a lovely conversation and I hope you will find and thank a Veteran today!
Boneless or Bone-in Turkey Breast (Air Fryer or Oven)
Talk about moist! If you are hosting a smaller Thanksgiving this year, then you need this recipe! Or maybe you just need a little extra turkey at the table, this is the best recipe for you! Pair it with my Turkey Thighs for an amazing meal.
Classic Pumpkin Custard Pie
I hope you saved my 3 ingredient all-butter pie crust from a few weeks back, or make it even easier and purchase a pie crust — but you have got to make this pumpkin custard pie. It rivals Costco pumpkin pie (which is pretty darn good), but is even smoother and creamier!
French Onion Chicken (One Skillet Meal)
Got 30 minutes and a skillet? Make this fresh and easy French Onion Chicken Skillet meal. It’s like a rich bowl of French onion soup with a little extra protein!
