Big Red Kitchen's Thanksgiving Recipes

Welcome to my kitchen where I have been making some recipes that you may find interesting. We are sliding quickly into the holiday season and I wanted to drop in and show you a few of my favorite treats. I like to find unique recipes that are not only delicious, but foods that all ages would enjoy. For the next two weeks I am highlighting some of my favorite Thanksgiving Side Dishes and a very cute dessert, so come on by.

Do you need a baked brie to knock your guests over?

This one will do it. This is BRK's most popular baked brie: Book Club Baked Brie. Pancetta, pine nuts, red wine, and shallots are the cornerstone flavors in this dish making your guests dig in hard and fast until the dish is gone in two minutes flat.

Need something new?

Un-Baked Apples
Giant Candy Corn Sugar Cookies and other Bake Sale Ideas

Something other than Pumkin Pie?

Cookie Dough Truffles- from Weekend Cook
1/2 cup butter
3/4 c brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 can (14 oz) sweet cond. milk
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 pounds candy coating, melt according to pkg. directions when ready for dipping

Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla, flour, and milk. Mix then add chips. Chill, roll in small balls, dip in melted chocolate. Chill til set. Eat. Confess. Eat. Confess. Makes about 70.

Need a Cute Food Craft for the Children?

Horns of Plenty were created by my friend Sheila and are very appropriate for this time of year. Sugar cones posing as cornucopias are filled with different treats with a little story explaining each treat on a tag. These are a meaningful touch on the Thanksgiving table. Cone- A horn of plenty, Pretzels- Arms folded in prayers of thanks, Candy Corn- A Pilgrim's ration of five kernels of corn per day during their first winter, Craisens- Fall harvest of fruits, Sunflower Seeds- planting for a bounteous harvest next year. Note- Bugles can be used in place of the sugar cone as horns of plenty.
