When it comes to holiday meals, I'm hard-pressed to decide what I like best ... all the tasty sides or all the fabulous pies.  It's a decision that's not easy for me to make.  But one thing I can say for sure, I truly couldn't care less about the main dish.  That's right, I could totally go without the Thanksgiving turkey or the Christmas ham.  Just pass the mashed potatoes, creamy broccoli casserole, and pumpkin slab pie, please!

If it came right down to it and I was forced to choose, I guess I would have to say my favorite part of holiday meals is ...

Turkey-Bacon Alfredo Casserole

When it comes to casseroles, our 7-year-old Little Miss H. can be picky.

She's not a picky eater for a kid by any means, but she's more of a meat-and-vegetables-separate kind of girl than a lover of all things casserole.  Which can make it tough for me, because I'm just the opposite ... I'd much rather have a casserole for dinner than a meat with a couple of sides.

But I've learned a couple of things that can lure Little Miss H. into a creamy casserole ...

Slow Cooker Cranberry Meatballs

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  Yes, the holidays are upon us ... And along with them come lots of Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers with family and friends.

Get-togethers with those we love are indeed one of the best parts about the holidays, but they can also leaving us scrambling to get everything prepared.  And I don't know about you, but the last thing I like to do is feel frenzied right before I have guests arriving.

So why not take advantage of slow cooker convenience to serve up classic holiday appetizers and party foods when you've got a crew coming over?  The slow cooker makes it so easy to prepare party foods, like these Slow Cooker Cranberry Meatballs, ahead of time ... and stop the last minute scramble.

Boiled Onions

Whole onions simmered until fork-tender, surrounded in a simple milk-and-butter broth, Boiled Onions is a simple classic New England dish that serves up big flavor.

Everyone has those classic Thanksgiving dishes that grace their tables every year, right?  You know, the ones that are just such a tradition that the table just doesn't look right without them?

Well, for my Mom growing up, the New England classic Boiled Onions were that dish.  Whole onions simmered until fork-tender, surrounded in a simple milk-and-butter broth ... they were a dish my grandmother made every Thanksgiving without fail.

It's a tradition my Mom continued for our own Thanksgiving dinner when I was a kid.  And I absolutely loved them.  It's amazing that such simple ingredients ... just onions, milk, butter, salt, and pepper ... can come together to create such deliciousness.  But they truly do.

Fall is easily one of my  favorite times of the year.  I just can't help but love the cooler days {that aren't yet too cold}, pulling the light sweaters out of the closet, wrapping up in blankets on the couch, and watching weekend football.  

Having grown up in Vermont, it probably goes without saying that the strikingly beautiful colors of fall foliage hold a very special place in my heart, too.  But do you know what I love even more?  All the wonderful pumpkin desserts making their appearances! 

To me, pumpkin desserts are the absolute spirit of fall.  Whether it's a classic pumpkin cake roll, creamy pumpkin cheesecake, or a slightly non-traditional pumpkin slab pie, the warm flavors of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg mixed with pumpkin are the perfect complement to any fall occasion.  

I'm happy to report this No-Bake Pumpkin Cream Pie is no exception.
