What's dishing on the blogs: Thanksgiving countdown continues!

Written by Dana Cizmas on


This week, we're continuing the Thanksgiving countdown with a wide range of sweet delights and savory sides to fill your holiday table. Here's what's dishing on the blogs we follow:

Regardless of how stuffed we feel after the copious Thanksgiving dinner, we simply can't turn down the sweet treats that make this day so special. Here are some wonderful selections: Liz from Stiller Snacks baked a rich and caramelly Polamalu Upside Down Cake; for a light and refreshing option, try Brown Eyed Baker's bright Cranberry Sorbet; and if you prefer a gluten-free diet, then Sincerely Caroline's No-bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are for you!

When it comes to the bread basket we have two brilliant choices: Culinary Cory slow-cooked a moist and dense loaf of Slow Cooker Pumpkin Bread, whereas Katy made buttery Sweet Potato Biscuits in her BakingDomesticityandAllThingsMini kitchen. Rest assured your guests will be impressed!

In terms of side dishes, we have it covered! Although crab is not a typical Thanksgiving ingredient, this Traditional Old Bay Maryland Crab Salad that Linda from Dinner Plan-it whipped up could be a great addition to the dinner table, as would Sincerely Caroline's Savory Rainbow Quinoa Salad. Try something non-traditional this Thanksgiving!

Finally, let's not forget about the restaurant scene! Yum Yum had afternoon tea at The Inn On Negley, Dan from Pizza Walk with Me ventured to Proper Brick Oven and Tap Room, and the girls from eatPGH checked out Butcher and the Rye.

See you here next week!
