While Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone, American Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. Here are some of my favorite holiday meal recipes for a Thanksgiving (or Christmas, or Easter) dinner your entire family will love.
Holiday Meal Recipes
Brown Sugar and Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole – Smashed sweet potatoes topped with brown sugar and pecans? What could be more Thanksgiving-y? This is my all time favorite Thanksgiving dish.
Homemade Cranberry Sauce – Kick the canned stuff to the curb with this easy and delicious homemade cranberry sauce recipe.

Kale & Brussel Sprout Salad with Bacon and Pear – Think you hate brussel sprouts? Think again. Even my brussel sprout hating husband loves this salad.

White Dinner Rolls (Hutterite Buns) – Slightly sweet dinner rolls make the perfect accompaniment to dinner any time. This recipe makes lots of rolls so there will be plenty to freeze for later.
Apple Pie – Nothing like an old fashioned apple pie to finish off a holiday dinner.
