Make : That DIY project that you’ve been meaning to get to (I’ll be at the Hobby Lobby bright and early tomorrow to get a start on homemade Christmas gifts. So excited for crafting!)

Two: Turkey Sage Croquettes
Three: Turkey Swiss Panini
Four: Quesadillas with Chutney and Brie
Five: Turkey Stuffing Turnovers
Six: Turkey Enchiladas

Hi there! Hope you had the best Thanksgiving ever, and are getting some serious shopping in today (or just relaxing, if shopping with massive crowds isn’t your thing). If you have a little too much turkey on your hands, lucky for you, I made a handy Thanksgiving leftover flow chart. These recipes are for when you get tired of sandwiches, and want to reinvent your leftovers a bit. Hope you enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving, guys! May you fill yourselves to the brim today! And for those of you not based in the States, rest assured I’ll eat extra pie for you. I’ve got about a million and one things to be thankful for- far too many to list here- but do know how thankful I am for each and every one of you who visit this site every day. Your support means everything!
Happy eating! xx

Happy Thanksgiving eve! I’m currently parked in my mom’s kitchen, chopping ingredients and prepping dishes in between answering emails and wrapping up work before the holiday. With the post turkey shopping extravaganza right around the corner, I wanted to squeeze in the first edition of the CC Holiday gift guide! I had so much fun putting this together for you guys. When it comes to gifts for friends and family that love to spend time in the kitchen, I gravitate towards classic items that are multi-functional, with a few eclectic pieces thrown in. There’s a mix of investment pieces perfect for close family and friends (hello dreamy Le Creuset…), and other items that would make great hostess and secret santa gifts (don’t miss that birch branch votive!). I’ve got my eye on that snow globe salt shaker (100% necessary), and the gold rimmed glasses from West Elm. What about you guys?
Any must have kitchen items I need to know about? Do tell!
Happy Thanksgiving planning, friends! Are you ready for Thursday yet? Are you excited, or feeling a bit of a time crunch? Thanksgiving is always at my family’s house every year, so I think that keeps stress to a minimum for us. We tend to use the same recipes, and since it’s only close family and friends, there isn’t really a need to impress anyone! The new dish that I’m really excited to make this year is this ‘potato chip’ roast. I don’t think that needs too much explaining..
One thing I’m always in charge of is the table. Ours is always pretty casual and a bit rustic. I hope to use the setting above as inspiration for this year, and I love the way the flowers, white plates, and silver accents keep everything from feeling too heavy. I love oranges, reds and browns as much as the next person, but when the meal already incorporates these autumn colors, I think some contrast is a good thing. I really can’t get enough of that flower arrangement! What part of the holiday are you most looking forward to this year?
