Things I like Thursday (Thanksgiving)

Happy Thursday! So one week from today is Turkey day so I thought I would do a things I like (Thanksgiving) Thursday!

We will start with one of my favorite dishes at Thanksgiving, mashed potatoes.

But how about some Mashed Potatoes Recipe with Bacon & Caramelized Onions

Everyone likes pumpkin pie (except me) why not make something a little different Turtle Pumpkin Ice Cream Cake

I am already thinking of what I want to do with my leftover Turkey! Found this recipe and thought it would be good White Turkey Chili

These are SO cute! Would be fun to make these for my niece and nephew on Turkey Day! Oreo turkeys!

Bacon makes everything better!! A turkey wrapped in bacon! Can’t get much better than that! Smoky Paprika-Bacon Roasted Turkey

Another favorite dish of mine at Thanksgiving. Green Bean Casserole with Mushrooms

Damn this looks and sounds great! Would be great as a dessert! Pull-Apart Bread

Oh YUM! bacon bourbon pecan pie

HAHAHAHA I had to share this one!

Some Thanksgiving Humor!

I saw these a while ago and have been wanting to make them ever since! brown sugar pound cakes with bailey’s irish cream frosting

MMMM Gotta have gravy for your potatoes and Turkey! Classic Gravy

How cute is this…

Here’s another for you..

Turkey Gravy – The best way to make gravy!

Here you go: A Billion Thanksgiving Recipes. (Or… uh… 101.)

YUM! NOW this looks amazing! My hubby doesn’t like green bean casserole, he says its mushy, plus he’s not a fan of green beans! but I am determined to change that I think I could with this recipe: Green Bean Casserole with Crispy Shallots

YUM! Maybe this isn’t a traditional Thanksgiving side, but I sure think it would be! It has WINE in it! Red Wine Glazed Mushrooms

Thanksgiving is NOT Thanksgiving without flaky crescent rolls

I am not a big fan of cranberry sauce. That’s because the kind I have had is from a can and it’s pretty nasty…So I made my own Homemade Cranberry Sauce last year and it was pretty darn good!

I am not a fan of sweet potatoes or yams…smothering them in marshmallows, YUCK! These look pretty good! Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes

How about some stuffing? ewwww I am not a fan. But maybe you might like it! Thanksgiving Stuffing

another pie for you silky smooth pumpkin pie

I hope you all have a scrumdiddlyumptious Thanksgiving! Maybe this post will help you to plan your meal or give you ideas or maybe you just want to drool over the pictures! Either way I am Thankful you read my post! Have a fabulous weekend and a short week (hopefully) next week! I have Thursday and Friday off! YAY for a 4 day weekend! and NO I will not be shopping on black Friday! I will be making leftover Turkey BLT’s with my leftover turkey and watch Elf, or White Christmas or National Lampoons Christmas Vacation or Polar Express!


Hello World! My name is Jamie! But a lot of peeps think I am Crazy! So some call me Crazy Jamie! The name originally came from my mother in law, she nick named me crazy nena, which means crazy woman in Spanish and well I always loved the name and well its stuck and I feel it fits me quite well. So I went with it! My friend Stacey’s kids also call me Crazy Jamie. Not Jamie, but Crrrrazy Jamie! Why be just Jamie, when I can be CRAZY JAMIE! So welcome to my world! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Food! I probably think about food more than a man thinks about sex. Well maybe not…But I think about it a LOT! I am always looking for recipes and inspirations and things I want to cook! I collect recipes and I LOVE Pinterest! Greatest place to get recipes! That’s where I get all mine! I am 35 years young and have been married to my Puerto Rican Hubby Normando Luis. Going on 5 years this year! We got hitched on 8-8-08. It’s just the two of us and always will be. I don’t want kids and yes he is ok with that! I like it just the two of us having fun, sipping wine, cooking, walking around naked and being goofy and on the go. It’s how we roll, and I LOVE our life! Why be like everyone else! I LOVE to be different! I have always been the odd one out, or stood out, or stood alone and always the loud girl. I am me 100% me all the time! Cussing, goofy, tons of energy, picture taking, pink hairs, crazy, outgoing chic! Some don’t like it, but that’s ok, not everyone can like someone so awesome! Did I mention I LOVE food, all kinds! My favorite food is Sushi, then Italian! I also LOVE learning how to make foods from my hubby’s homeland of Puerto Rico! I will travel there someday! I also LOVE Cajun/creole food! I think I was a Cajun in a past life! I also LOVE to make homemade pasta and my most favorite tomatoes are San Marzano tomatoes! How I show love to friends and family is by cooking for them! I put my heart and soul into my food and cooking! It’s my passion and you can see, hear and taste it! My favorite place to be in is my kitchen cooking! I love to hike and have lived in Colorado my whole life. I don’t think I could live anywhere there wasn’t mountains! I also LOVE the dry heat! I don’t handle humidity too well. Along with cooking and taking pictures and hanging out with my hubby, I also have a side salsa business I do as well as a cupcake business too. I love to stay busy! Why rest? I can’t sit still so I just keep a moving anyway I can! So this is me and my world and welcome to it!
