How is it almost Thanksgiving already? I don’t know about you, but I haven’t done a thing yet for Thanksgiving! (Thankfully, I am not hosting.) One of my struggles every year around the holidays is to balance moderation in eating. I try to avoid “diet” food like the plague (Processed and fake? No thanks!), so when I look for healthier alternatives they need to actually be healthier — not just less calories, fat, sugar, etc. I am not a great cook, so you will not likely see many recipes from my corner of the blog. However, we wanted to get some great holiday recipes out there to our readers so we reached out to some friends in the blog world to share their favorite recipes with you. I know as I was reading through this I found several I want to try so I hope that you do as well!
