Thanksgiving 2015 Collage

I’m super excited about today’s post!  I’ve teamed up with a fabulous group of bloggers to bring you 25 Thanksgiving recipes.  We can’t help you avoid your crazy cousin Jack at the Thanksgiving table, but we do have your Thanksgiving meal covered.  Plus, each of us is doing our own giveaway valued at $50 or more (that’s a total of over $1,250 in prizes)!  I have links to all the recipes (and giveaways) at the end of this post!

My giveaway is a $75 gift certificate to Jessie Steele.  If you haven’t heard of Jessie Steele, I’m excited to introduce you.

Jessie Steele makes my favorite aprons!  If you see me in a cute apron, you can almost bet that it is one of theirs.  I’m so lucky to have them sponsoring this post!

Now, they have a line of matching parent/child aprons and accessories.

I can’t even describe how excited Myles was to bake with me in our matching aprons!  It was adorable!!

Baking with Myles is one of my favorite things to do and this is the perfect time of year to do it!  Sometimes, I let him write the recipes (that’s always interesting).  Other times, he just works with me on my recipes and helps measure, mix, and clean the spatula with his tongue.

High Five

Of course, there is also lots of high-fiving for a job well done!

TV with Myles

It’s too bad that we didn’t have our matching aprons yet when we went on TV together.  But, that cupcake apron that I’m wearing above is a Jessie Steele apron and it now comes in a child’s size, too.  How cute would that be to wear with a child for holiday baking?!

If you win my giveaway, I’ve got to see photos!

OK… on to my recipe: sweet potato casserole donut holes!

Sweet Potato Casserole Donut Holes

I play around with sweet potato casserole-inspired recipes every year.  I’ve made sweet potato casserole marshmallows and three different kinds of sweet potato casserole cupcakes.  These baked donuts are my fun new twist on sweet potato casserole.  They are spiced with nutmeg and wrapped in a toasted marshmallow topping.  They are super fun and easy to adapt to your specific tastes:  swap the sweet potato with pumpkin, add other fall spices, or do a simple cinnamon and sugar dusting instead of the marshmallow topping – you can’t go wrong!
