4. Pig-a-ma-jigs

Wrap each piece of hotdog with a piece of bacon. Secure ends of bacon with the toothpick and place in baking dish, but don't pack them in. Cover the top with brown sugar and place in hot oven at 325. Check them to baste as sugar and bacon melt. Bake until bacon starts to get crispy. Remove from oven and remove the pig-a-ma-jigs to another  dish. Great hot or cold!

6. A Turkey Breakfast

Cooking a Thanksgiving feast takes the majority of the day, especially when you have lots of family, friends and kids that sometimes we forget about the other meals leading up to dinner. Tanisha shared with us a yummy and quick snack that's even fun to make too. Best of all? It's healthy!

 What you'll need:

  • clementines
  • red and green grapes
  • a whole pear
  • pineapple
  • banana
  • blueberries
  • orange
  • any other fruit you may want
  • wood skewers
  • eye stickers


Peel the skin from clementines and break into pieces. Cut banana into small slices. Cut pineapple into small pieces. Take skewer and stack the fruit- blueberry, pineapple, orange, red and green grape, banana then clementine, or any order you prefer. Repeat same order for all other skewers. Once you have about 10-15 skewers attach them to the whole pear in a fan fashion. Add eye stickers and voila! You have a fruit turkey.

7. Life-Changing Brussel Sprouts

Now, we know what you're thinking...Who likes brussel sprouts?! These will definitely change your mind once you've had them. With all the yummy carbs and meat it's nice to have some veggies to balance it out. Go ahead, try them out!

What you'll need:

  • 1/2 lb brussel sprouts per person
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp pepper
  • 3-4 slices of bacon


Take the package of brussel sprouts, rinse and cut them stems off the bottom, then cut into quarters. In a large bowl, place the brussel sprouts, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Stir and mix so it coats the brussel sprouts. In a pan, cooke the bacon slices. Once the bacon is cooked, crumble and put aside. Mix together bacon renderings and brussel sprouts into pan, cook over medium heat until they are brown and soft. Once they are done pour into a serving dish. Voila!

8. The Ultimate Turkey 

Cooking your first turkey? Maybe you have a turkey that turns out bland or dry every year. This recipe will be a life changer and you will have the most delicious, juicy and tasty turkey ever. If you have never tried Williams-Sonoma's turkey brine, you need to get it ASAP.

What you'll need:

  • turkey (1 lb per person / frozen or fresh will do)
  • turkey brine (we recommend Williams-Sonoma)
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1/2 can chicken broth
  • meat thermometer


If you have a frozen turkey, it will take 2 days in the refrigerator. Place the 1/2 stick of butter into tbsp and put under the skin of the turkey. Spread brine on the outside of the turkey (dry or wet will work). Pour 1/2 can of chicken broth into the bottom of the pan. Once the turkey is prepared, place in a 350 degree oven, basting with the juices every 30-45 minutes. It will take roughly 12 minutes per pound to cook to the 165 degree internal temperature. Use meat thermometer into the deepest part of the thigh to check the temperature. Once it has reached the 165 degrees, take out of the oven and let sit for 20-30 minutes prior to carving.
