Mini Glazed Pumpkin Scones

I made these the other day and they are perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.  Even my picky eater ate a few!

Starbucks inspired mini glazed pumpkin scones are the perfect little fall treat and since they're small, you can enjoy more than one without feeling guilty! |

Crescent Roll Breakfast Bake

I made this the last two Thanksgiving for breakfast.  It is simple to put together and quick to cook.  I love that it’s all one dish, which makes for easy clean up.

New York-Style Bagel Recipe

I’ve been making these bagels the past few weeks, and they are amazing!  My husband and kids love them.  I’m going to make them for Thanksgiving holiday, because my mother is coming to visit and I know she will enjoy them as well.  I usually make 2 plain, 2 brown sugar cinnamon, 2 banana walnut, and 2 everything bagels.  The only downside to this recipe is, it takes a few hours to make.  If you plan to make these, definitely make them a day or two before.

Savory Turkey Gravy

My husband is in charge of making the gravy every year.  Apparently I can’t make a roux.  He uses this recipe with some of the pan dripping, and it is soooo good.

I’m sorry, but I’m a fan of this pumpkin pie.  If you like to go above and beyond with your pies, try creating a design like this turkey crust from Kudos Kitchen.
