67 Recipes for Thanksgiving and the Day After: Apple Slab Pie Recipe from bakedbyrachel.com

I’m gearing up for the big day (aka the biggest food holiday of the year… Thanksgiving!) and sure hope you are too! But in case you’re still looking for a few new ideas to try, I’ve got you covered with plenty of possibilities! These are some of my personal favorites that I’d definitely recommend trying, whether for Thanksgiving or any day of the year!

I’ve also added a bunch of fun options to use up leftover turkey… don’t be fooled by some of the names, just swap out chicken for turkey for a new and tasty idea! Don’t just make soup and sandwiches this year, try something different!

And whatever your plans are for the day after… black Friday shopping, hanging out, setting up Christmas decorations or taking a nice long nap, I want you to take some time off from the kitchen but still have an enjoyable meal. So, I’ve added a list of easy and totally delicious slow cooker recipes to add to your list. Just imagine throwing in all of the ingredients, heading out to do a days worth of shopping and coming home to a hot meal! It doesn’t get much better.

    Where do I find a pan for the mini cheesecakes? Is it one pan or several?

    • #
      Rachel — November 24, 2013 at 11:18 am

      Within most, if not all, of the mini cheesecake recipes there is a link to the pan I used. It is one pan with removable bottoms specifically designed for mini desserts such as this.
