20 Holiday Recipe Favorites

If I just had sides for Thanksgiving and nothing else I’d be 100% satisfied, so I’ve rounded up 20 holiday recipe favorites for sides and a few treats…because treats! I’ve collaborated with some other amazing and talented food bloggers that are also local to Minnesota!

Do you make the same thing every year for the holidays or do you like to switch it up and try something new? I like to do a little bit of both. As I’ve gotten older, some of the classics from growing up just don’t get me as excited as they used to. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about that classic mashed potato, stuffing, gravy situation! I just love to try updated salads, new vegetable dishes, and maybe even something unexpected for dessert.

Enjoy perusing through these next TWENTY recipes and let me know what you think. Better yet, let me know what you make!
