The week of Thanksgiving is here and you are freaking out because you don’t know what to do with you sweet potatoes or you are sick of the traditional green bean casserole. Don’t fret I’ve got your back. I have the perfect different sweet potato recipe and a perfect simple green bean recipe that has as much flavor as the casserole.  Also if you are looking for a killer traditional apple pie recipe I’ve got that here for you too!

Family Thanksgiving happened on Saturday for me this year and my sister and brother-in-law had the newest addition to their family in attendance…Henry!! A giant schnauzer puppy! I’m in love. I don’t know what was better, food or hanging with Henry. Oh and the family time was good too.

Classic Apple Pie Recipe

One of the best apple pies I have ever had. It has lemon zest, as well as lemon, in it and it taste so fresh and crisp and delicious.

These green beans were amazing! They were the perfect green crunch you need with all the heavy potatos and gravy at Thanksgiving. They also had the same french onion flavor as a green bean casserole from the crispy shallots.
My dad thought this was the best sweet potato casserole he has ever had. Trust him it was that good. And its different because its savory.
