23 Deliciously Healthy Desserts for Thanksgiving

It’s less than a week till Thanksgiving and it’s definitely time to do a round-up of healthy recipes to help you with your holiday menu-planning.  You know I’m simply terrible at baking so I’ve called on my blogger friends to provide us with some recipes and wow – they came through in a huge way!

Before I get started I’ll remind you that I’ve got a dinner menu here and I was so thrilled this week to have my beet salad included in BuzzFeed’s article on 27 Insanely Delicious Salads You Need For Thanksgiving.   And I’m sure you remember Doug from The Kitchen Professor.  He’s put together a great post from 20 experts on Thanksgiving Tips.  I’ve got you covered in everything you need this year!

Now let’s get on to the sweet stuff.  So much to choose from and so many talented bloggers to introduce you to.  Let’s dig in!

    Darling friend! Good morning! What a wild week at school. Finally settling here with you is a rest stop for the soul and stomach! I am going to scroll up and down this page this week as I prepare something special for my husband and myself. Thank you for honoring our Thanksgiving. These recipes and photos are magnificent. I am caught between that almond cake and the one with the praline crunch!!!!

    How are you? Anita

      I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, Anita. Each time I answer one of your comments I am reminded of how much fun we have each time we chat! I hope you’re able to have a little time to yourself over the holidays and catch your breath. Your photos are mind-blowing!! That little truck with the trees has me smiling every time I think of it. You should make your Xmas cards with that. And if you don’t, can I? lol Talk soon xoxo
