I wanted to do little place cards for everyone, but I ended up running out of time (and creativity). I decided to make some delicious smelling Christmas ornaments as little "favors" instead. These are SO easy and they made my house smell delicious while they were baking! You mix equal parts cinnamon and applesauce (I used about 1.5 cups of each). Once the mixture starts to look like cookie dough, roll it out and use a cookie cutter to cut your shapes. Bake it in the oven at 200 degrees for 2 hours. I was in a rush and I think I rolled my dough a bit too thin, but they still smelled delicious and looked decent.

The most important part of Thanksgiving is the turkey, right? Well the recipe I found from Taste of Home for Moist Turkey Breast did NOT disappoint! It was my first turkey [breast] and I got a lot of compliments on how moist and flavorful it was. Not going to lie, I felt pretty awesome since I've had some pretty dry turkey before! The recipe was super easy, too and since I made a turkey breast, it only took about 3 hours to cook!
I also made the Scalloped Potatoes from Food.com. I've never made scalloped potatoes (except boxed) and I was pretty pleased with how easy these were! I
I also made Skinny Taste's Cranberry Pear Sauce. I'm usually not a fan of cranberry sauce. I'm not sure why b/c I could live on cranberry juice! I picked this recipe because I love pears so I thought it might make the cranberry sauce taste better to me. The sauce was tasty but it wasn't something I'll make again. It did look pretty though so if you want to add some color to an otherwise beige meal, this is perfect for that!
