I’ve been collecting Thanksgiving recipes for months so that I could wow my family with how good vegan food can be. As fate would have it, however; I’m not going home for Thanksgiving this year.
I’m not complaining; I’ve got a great reason for missing the holiday. Instead of spending our vacation time watching my family eat turkey, my husband and I are saving it so we can go to my sister’s wedding on December 27th and then to my brother’s wedding on January 4th.
Both my brother and my sister have found partners that I’m excited to welcome to our family and I’m delighted to celebrate with them. My sister even asked me to officiate her wedding. Due to stage fright, I hesitated, but in the end I accepted. My husband, an actor who loves to perform, is going to do it with me and we’ve got a fun routine planned out.
Anyway, it will likely be just me and my hubby for Thanksgiving so I doubt I’ll use many of the recipes I’ve collected. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them, however! Here’s ten Thanksgiving desserts that are sure to please.
