Thanksgiving is next week. That means I’m over cooking Thanksgiving recipes. I’m done. So we might as well round them all up in one place. I’m going include all my recipes that are Thanksgiving related or I envision them on my own table and put them on the page. I’ll also be including links to other great blogs out there that have amazing fall recipes that could be included on your Thanksgiving menu. I wonder if I’ll celebrate Thanksgiving this year. I’ve kind of already ate my way through Thanksgiving.

How about I just talk about what I’m thankful for this year. Like this pumpkin granola in the blog post picture. I love that stuff. Now you can do the same in the comments! Here’s my list!

  1. Anyone that has ever read my blog, laughed at my poor humor, or enjoyed one of my recipes. This blog keeps going because you keep supporting. So thank YOU for everything you have done to help it grow.
  2. My parents for always being there no matter what. They support me even when they don’t support my language.
  3. Laura and Sergio. Even though Sergio is away until February, he is still the best man i know.
  4. My Mountain Hard Wear jacket. If it weren’t for this thing, I would not live in CO.
  5. Anything chocolate related.
  6. Coconut butter.
  7. Attractive males. There are few and far between, but I am thankful for the single ones. Which I know of none at the moment. So I guess we can retract that entire last statement.
  8. Kombucha.
  9. Lululemon spandex.
  10. My Mac. She’s so great and loves me back. And she never acts up.

That was too many things, but 10 felt right. Now for food.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  7. This all looks so amazing!! I am going to my parents for thanksgiving and sent my dad a long email about what is paleo, why am I doing it, and what my food requests are for thanksgiving.

  12. I wish I lived next door to you. You are so awesome and inspiring and real and I am grateful for your recipes. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  13. Alright girl, I totally name dropped your website at least 4 times today at my WOD. You are my go to blog, the food and tastes you like are the same food and tastes I like! I appreciate you and all the hard work you put in. Cannot wait for your cookbook! Have a wonderful day!

  14. This post just made me quite happy, hungry and excited for thanksgiving. All those sweets and stuffings look delish. You’re the best!!

  15. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes, i’m excited for Thanksgiving!! Can you please share the Caramel Cheesecake Bars recipe, the link just takes me to the picture. Thanks!!

  16. Juli, You are my thanksgiving saver! Now I can eat lots of delicious food on Thanksgiving and not feel horrible the next day. Love your blog. You should do a movie night treats special, for those movie nights that we all want to eat popcorn and candy at. Again I love your blog and your awesome humor thank you for the recipes!

  17. I’ve been following you for awhile now – your humorous blogs, superbly amazing recipes and awesome food porn!! I’ve tried to make a few of your recipes and they never end up looking as nice as yours – still taste great but because of this – I think we should get married – you can cook and I can clean! I’m no lezzie and my bf is actually laughing while I’m writing this … But your food just conpletely makes me speechless because of how amazing and creative it is (and because I love chocolate, pumpkin or coconut anything) … That is all!!

  18. Any ideas on how to cook the bird? We have a 24 lbs organic turkey ready to go. Do we brine it? If so whats in good paleo brine? I know most brines are salt based, does that make the turkey super salty. We went paleo about 6 months ago and have really cut back salt And what on earth do you contain all that water & turkey in and still wedge the thing in the fridge. Thanks & Gobble Gobble!

    1. Brining a turkey does not make it salty. It allows water to be stored in the cells of the meat, aka, helping it to stay moist during the cooking process. The brine needs to have a higher salt content than the meat for this process to work. A cooler works best for storing the turkey and brine. If you live somewhere cold, just stick it outside (unless it’s going to be below 32), otherwise keep a stock of ice in your freezer and keep the water in the cooler and turkey cold with that, it only needs to brine for 24 hours. Make sure to rinse the bird before you roast it. It will come out great!

  19. Hi! I am sooooo nervous to try Crossfit but I really, really want to! Can you offer some words of advice/ wisdom for attending my first class? *gulp* I’ve been procrastinating for almost a month now! 🙁

    1. Don’t be nervous and if you are, don’t think that everyone else isn’t nervous. It takes a lot of balls to walk into your first class but it’s worth it. Just listen to your coach and keep going! The more you go, the more you’ll understand it all 🙂

    2. LJ – don’t let a little bit of nervousness stop you from trying it out. I was the SAME way; thinking “I can’t do any of the movements they talk about so I’m going to make a fool of myself if I go and try it”. Then one day I went and did the free try-out session and felt so good (if not very tired) afterwards. They scale EVERYTHING and EVERYONE was new at some point. I was never athletic before and now I have some muscles (started crossfit in feb of this year). Please, please, please give it a try – it’s like nothing else and that’s a good thing. 🙂

      Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

  20. Juli,

    Your picture taking skills have gotten exponentially better. Good job! Your food has stayed the same. Awesome.


  21. Thank you for these recipes!! I enjoy your quirky humor and the recipes I have tried are great. I love to cook and thought being Paleo would mean meat and steamed/stir fried veggies. OMGoodness you and other bloggers have made my kitchen ooze with delicious smells and my dinning room a happy place!

    Amazing. I made carmelized onion “stuffing”, sweet potato, bacon, chive biscuits, chewy pecan brittle, and baked apple pie apples. The family so didn’t appreciate the effort : P

  23. I am in love with Paleo granola and cannot wait to try your pumpkin granola. My question is: if I keep it in a air sealed glass container, do you have any idea how long it is good? My husband is hypersensitive about shelf life and I am not. The last think I want to do is make him sick and then he will not want to do Paleo anymore!


  24. I made your Pumpkin Granola yesterday and it is awesome! I made one small adjustment by using 2 TBSP of coconut oil and 3 TBSP of unsweetened applesauce. Ended up baking it around 35 minutes and it turned out so good! Even my 11 year old that doesn’t like nuts enjoyed it.

    Thank you!

  25. Hello, maybe my computer is messing up or something but whenever I click on the links I only get a picture and no recipes… The look great and I would love to try to make some this season though!

    1. really?? i just went to the link and it’s not doing that to me for any of the recipes. try refreshing the link. and if it doesn’t work, you can always just look up the recipe in the search bar. that’s so strange.

  26. These recipes look amazing. I just started my Paleo life and I just love getting new post from you. Also, the crew at Reasons Med Spa do too! Thanks again.

  27. Thanks Juli for taking the time to make this great compilation!!! I will be making a handful of your recipes this Thanksgiving. I am so appreciative of your love of food, healthy lifestyle, and blogging!
