Who needs pumpkin pie when you have Pumpkin Ravioli with Hazelnut Brown Butter Sauce and Balsamic Drizzle. This side is sweet and savory. The balsamic drizzle compliments the sweetness perfectly. If you don’t want to hand roll your pasta I use this pasta attachment for my KitchenAid mixer and I love it! I also use this awesome ravioli mold.
Creamed Spinach with Bacon is a classic Thanksgiving side. It’s loaded with lots of rich and creamy cheese and we’ve added some bacon because…well you know! I love this simple white au gratin dish, to serve it in!
Bitter and sweet make this Maple Roasted Endive a perfect combination. You could replicate the recipe with carrots or parsnips, too!

Add some spice to your corn casserole. This Sweet & Spicy Corn Pudding gets its spice from sweet peppers and bold jalapenos.
You can’t have Thanksgiving without sweet potatoes. These Twice Backed Sweet Potatoes have a gorgeous presentation, sure to impress any guest coming over for dinner. Make sure to use this mat for easy clean up when baking those sweet potatoes.
