Today I made marshmallows for Thanksgiving using this recipe. I added two giant tablespoons of cinnamon and cut the vanilla in half, but they smelled really good and I'm going to test drive them on sweet potato casserole this week.
It seems like every year I go a little crazy and try to make something elaborate from scratch that I could just buy at the store. One year I made my own stuffing bread, one year it was my own crescent roll dough. I actually still make my own some of the time because it's much easier to work with. This year I'm planning on making little brie-cranberry-crescent roll muffin cups, so I'll let you know how it goes.
Are you making anything from scratch? Is anyone having a very Pinterest Thanksgiving? I feel like soon I won't be able to log in without seeing a million pins of roasted turkeys wearing pilgrim hats on a bed of cranberries or something.
