Let's all be honest, while turkey may get all the Thanksgiving attention, the real stars of the meal are the side dishes. They spread on the dinner table, handed from guest to guest for a dollop of this or serving of that, and end up taking up the majority of your plate. Dishes like roasted vegetables, fluffy dressing, creamy mashed potatoes, airy rolls, seasonal salads, and the classic green bean casserole all combine to bring your Thanksgiving together. This collection of recipes allows you to easily stick with traditional flavors, or go a more adventurous route and opt for recipes like Chorizo and Roasted Poblano Wild Rice Stuffing or White Balsamic and Rosemary Cranberry Sauce.

No-Bake Pineapple Cheesecake Notes:

  • I have not tried this recipe using fresh whipped cream, so I cannot attest to the results.
  • The amount of sugar you need will depend on the sweetness of your pineapple. I recommend tasting and adjusting the level of sweetness before filling your serving dishes.
  • This recipe was modified on 5/15/16 to included only canned pineapple.

My Favorite Things To Do When In Maui

My Favorite Things To Do When In Maui

I always get asked so many questions about the places I travel to so I figured I’d start sharing about each trip I go on here. It’s so nice when you travel to a new destination and you have trusted recommendations on what to do, where to stay, and what to eat! I’m sharing my favorite things to do in Maui. I hope that it will help you find the fun places to go, things to do, good things to eat, and great places to stay!

We have been to Maui a few times and stayed on different parts of the island. This time we stayed near Lahaina at the Kaanapali Alii Condos. We took all our children so we chose to rent a condo with three bedrooms and a kitchen as that was a lot more affordable than multiple hotel rooms and eating out each meal It wasn’t a five star resort, but it was a very nice condo and it had a nice pool area and was right on the


Weekend Menu for Entertaining Friends Recipe

Expecting friends this weekend and unsure what to cook? We've got so many superb recipes for you to try that will leave guests really impressed, but wont take anywhere near as long as you'd expect, to cook.

Roasts are always a big hit when you're entertaining and they're especially easy to make, as once you've done all the prep you don't have to worry about them too much once your meat is in the oven.

Casseroles are also a great choice as they're low-hassle too and while they're cooking you can either get on with the starter or dessert. They're also perfect for a weekend dish as it takes quite a long time for all the flavours to come together and for the meat to tenderise. Particularly during the week when we're short on time, casseroles or stews aren't ideal, so why not get cooking on the weekend.

Try this venison casserole with button mushrooms (pictured). It makes a pleasant change to a classic beef casserole and because it's leaner, venison makes for a slightly healthier meat option. When it's been cooked for a few hours it not only infuses with everything it's been cooking with but it becomes melt-in-the-mouth perfect too. We love how tender the venison becomes in this casserole and it goes great with the button mushrooms.

In the way of desserts, why not try a rhubarb and lemon tart or a really classy chocolate mousse cake that's got plenty of seasonal fruit and berries heaped on top. We've got a huge selection of really classic desserts and more elaborate show-stoppers to really wow guests this weekend.

Whether you want to cook a vegetarian, meat or fish dish this weekend for friends and family we've got everything you could ever need for a wonderful evening of weekend entertainment.

Click through for more of our favourite recipes for when you're entertaining friends on the weekend.


One pan. One salmon fillet. That’s all you need! You can even serve this on the sheet tray for a more rustic party vibe, with asparagus and cherry tomatoes cooked right alongside the fish. Serve rice on the side, or make little bowls for everyone with all the colorful components.
