Make Ahead Thanksgiving! Keto, Low Carb, & THM Recipes (1)

I think one of the hardest things about hosting a major holiday is timing. Having everything ready and hot to eat at the same time can be overwhelming. For me, it's hard enough to just keep the house clean with 4 kids underfoot let alone cook at the same time. I try to make as many things ahead of time as possible so that I only have to reheat sides and tend the meat.

I decided to put together a list of recipes you can make AT LEAST 24 hours ahead.These either reheat well or are eaten cold (pumpkin cheesecake, I'm looking at you).

    Wow, Taryn, i thought i should finally make the effort to tell you how much i appreciate your sending me your Keto creations to my email. Don't know how I was so lucky, but I forward them on to our 6 married children (trying to convert them!) Finally there are normal recipes with normal ingredients that are easy to make!! It really shouldn't be that hard! Thanks for proving that. As a former home ec teacher, I have managed to stay normal weight, but with a great deal of effort playing weight management teeter totter. I've been searching for the "holy grail of health" my whole life. Luckily it exists & its here! (was also in the olden days before processed food) KetoII And your recipes have made it SO Easy! Muchisimas Gracias! Your creations are benefitting mucho gente!

    This recipe looks delicious. However, I need a substitution for mushrooms. I'm allergic and every recipe I've found has mushrooms. Just wondering. Thanks!

      For the green bean casserole? You can omit the mushrooms.

    I am new at the low carb diet. I like to receive any recipes that you have. I am interested in all kinds except seafood. Am allergic. But I like to learn new breakfast, lunch, dinner along with snack ideas. Also the holiday recipes would be great to receive also if you don't mind. Thank you! Better health,living and losing weight more is my main goal! Thank you again and God Bless you! Take care.
