The Sides Have It with These Over the Top Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

As a vegetarian I tend to love Thanksgiving sides best of all. Have you tried my vegetarian stuffing yet?! It’s insanely good. But these? These scalloped sweet potatoes are epic. They’re creamy and the right blend of salty and sweet from the mix of cheeses and sweet potatoes. Best part is, you can prep them the night before and just pop them into the oven when it’s time.

We host Thanksgiving every year at our home and it’s something Bob and I both look forward to all year.

It’s my favorite time of year and filling the house with friends all weekend long makes my soul happy. So today we’re talking Thanksgiving leftovers! Namely, how to use them up along with how to host your friends for a day after Thanksgiving party featuring a menu starring all your favorite leftovers. Today I’ve teamed up with Dixie Plates to share my seriously epic leftover stuffing dumplings and how you can turn your Thanksgiving weekend into a weekend-long holiday extravaganza!

Celebrating the Season with a Friendsgiving Brunch

My love for entertaining comes from a deeply rooted passion for bringing people together in celebration and in love. It’s for that reason I love the Friendsgiving trend of recent years as a way to welcome the friends you love to your table and into your home. Today I’ve teamed up with Bed Bath & Beyond to inspire your own Friendsgiving feast, but with a slight twist. We’re ditching the turkey in lieu of brunch with a spread of food that will have you passing over your roaster pan in favor of the waffle maker. My hope is that you’ll spy something here (like perhaps my spinach and broccolini goat cheese quiche recipe) that will move you to send out a group text that says something along the lines of, “Hi, friends. Come on over. Let’s do brunch.”

Level Up Your Brunch Game with this Spinach Broccolini Goat Cheese Quiche

One of my favorite ways to host over the holiday season is with a brunch in lieu of a full dinner. We host pretty much weekly this time of year and if there is one thing I can promise you it’s that people love brunch! I made this spinach broccolini quiche loaded with goat cheese as part of the Friendsgiving brunch I created in collaboration with Bed Bath & Beyond and it’s not only delicious, but it’s also one of the prettiest things I’ve ever made.
