{recipe} holiday treats - thanksgiving edition

Hi lovely people! 

I don't know about you but I am a total season hopper. Fall is (almost) in full swing in Tallahassee now and all I can think about is the holiday party my roommates and I are going to throw before finals! I've found so many cute ideas for desserts and appetizers to include in our holiday round up.

Let's not forget about Thanksgiving though.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays... but I still tend to neglect sometimes.
Here are a few dessert ideas besides your typical (but delicious) pumpkin pie.

Do you have a favorite dessert that you make every Thanksgiving?
I know that I will be making my pumpkin cheesecake squares to contribute to our dessert table!

Oh, and I am so excited to get to work today. I work with kindergartners in the after school care program at an elementary school in Tallahassee. Today we are throwing a party called "My Favorite Feast" for Thanksgiving. All of the kids are bringing in their favorite food and we are having a party! Parents are allowed to come join the festivities and we are going to have games and arts and crafts set up. I looove my job!

Have a great weekend everyone!
