At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

Thanksgiving Round-Up!

Happy (almost) Thanksgiving, everyone!  Though I don't have a new Thanksgiving recipe for you, I do want to share some of my favorite Thanksgiving and Autumnal recipes with you all, and give you the chance to share some of yours, too.  You can even share Thanksgiving or Autumnal posts, crafts, photos - anything related to Thanksgiving or Autumn or being thankful.  And there's NO LIMIT to how many posts you can link-up, so feel free to share as many as you like! :)  Don't forget to check out some of the other wonderful things linked up, and to tell your friends.  The more the merrier! :)

Now, onto some of my Thanksgiving favorites.  Though most of us associate Thanksgiving with turkey (and I do, too), I decided to forego that obvious entry and focus mainly on sides and desserts.  I am not going to get into the "left overs" category either, but you can feel free to link-up some of those, if you wish. :)  Anyway, I will be sharing my favorites in a few categories: Traditional Thanksgiving Sides (Made Allergy-Friendly), Alternative Thanksgiving Sides, Traditional Thanksgiving Desserts (Made Allergy-Friendly), and Alternative Thanksgiving Desserts.  Here we go!

~*~ Traditional Thanksgiving Sides ~*~
(Made Allergy-Friendly) 

This is one of my favorite sides ever.  No Thanksgiving would be complete without green bean casserole in my book.  This recipe is very good and can even be made with other veggies (like broccoli) instead of green beans, if you desire.  

~*~ Alternative Thanksgiving Sides ~*~

If you're looking for something a bit different, but still in season, this great salad fits the bill perfectly!  It has your sweet and crunchy and a little bit of tart, too.  It's one of my favorite salads to date!

These could be either dessert or side, but 100% delicious either way!  They are a favorite anywhere I take them.  If you love pumpkin cake, pumpkin bread or pumpkin-flavored things, you will adore these!

~*~ Traditional Thanksgiving Desserts ~*~
(Made Allergy-Friendly) 

This is, by far, my favorite traditional Thanksgiving pie ever.  The recipe listed is not super allergy-friendly, however, you can use the ingredient substitutions page to find ways to make it more allergy-friendly if you need it to be.  You can use gluten-free crust if you need it to be gluten-free.  You can use dairy-free butter and my simple pie crust recipe if you need it to be dairy-free.  The only thing you'd not be able to make it is probably egg and nut-free.  You could use another type of nut, though, such as walnut or almond, if you could have those and not pecans.

This is a great apple pie recipe.  You can leave the cinnamon off the top of the crust if you want it to be more "traditional" or if you just don't like a lot of cinnamon, too.  I am going to make a modification of this recipe this year.  It will be the same basic pie, but with a crumble top.  YUM!  When I get that recipe done, I'm sharing, I promise! :)

~*~ Alternative Thanksgiving Sides ~*~

I honestly am not a fan of pumpkin pie.  Never have been.  However, this I like.  It tastes very similar to pumpkin pie without the crust.  It is a great alternative for those who want the flavor of pumpkin pie in a more allergy-friendly form.

I hope you have this post has given you some more allergy-friendly ideas for Thanksgiving.  I have plenty of other desserts and sides (and other things) that you could definitely use for your allergy-friendly Thanksgiving feast, which you can find using the tabs above (the ones that say "breakfast/brunch", "desserts", etc.) or by searching my blog for them using the "search this blog" bar on the right.  Feel free to send me an email if you need more ideas, too.  I'm more than happy to help! :)

Again, please take a moment to link-up your Thanksgiving, Autumn or being thankful posts below.  I can't wait to see what you share! :)
