Thanksgiving Recipes + Wine Pairings

This week we nearly broke the internet with a Thanksgiving dish that a friend of mine created for our segment on a popular local daytime television show I regularly appear on.

Chef Corey Meier, from Create Catering, whipped up an English Muffin stuffing that made our talk show host, Jason Matheson, from The Jason Show 'oooohh + ahhhh' more than any other food segment as we chatted delicious Thanksgiving sides coupled to a variety of wines perfectly paired to the dishes.

Watch the segment, grab the recipe + order up the wines -- just in time for your Thanksgiving feast (see details in the SHOP page for ordering the wines)!

Thanksgiving Dessert Alert! I'm also featuring a delicious Layered Pumpkin Pie in a Jar recipe from my gal pal, Brenda, of A Farmgirl's Dabbles. Because who doesn't need a tasty new way to enjoy pumpkin pie this holiday season? Click HERE for the recipe.

Enjoy your bites + paired Sip Better sips this Thanksgiving!

Think about it just for a second...

Here's our Jason Show segment to get you started!

Spritzers

Ramona ruby grapefruit/wine spritzer from Italy! You guys, I LOVE this canned spritzer so much. It has seriously become one of my favorite things to drink this summer. I love to spruce this baby up by running a sprig of tarragon through a grapefruit wedge before adding it to a glass. Simply pour the canned spritzer over top for one tasty sipper! Get the Ramona here at Sip Better -- you can thank me later!

Sangria Recipes

Long past are the days of the 'traditional' Sangria recipe. With so many more wines on the shelf and a slew of delicious bitters, shrubs + more in your favorite retail stores, I thought I’d toss out a few ways to make this tasty Spanish teaser even more irresistible with a few new flavor combinations.

The basics, yes, are a great place to start yet there are a number of directions you can take this simple recipe to add depth and interest to your backyard punch.

Or, use a light and refreshing sparkling wine, like Cava from Spain to create a spa-like concoction and add ingredients like fresh kiwi, lime or basil for lifting its refreshing aromatics.
