Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 92
The big day is less than two weeks away. It’s time to take action!
Let’s get cooking in the kitchen with this fantastic collection of recipes recommended by the family.
There’s nothing better than a family-approved meal.
Well, there’s no time to waste! Scroll down and look at these posts to find easy, simple dishes for Thanksgiving.
Personal Note from Janine
I took a little road trip with the family on Friday to Watsonville, California. We attended a fun Holiday Crafts and Antique Fair called Goat Hill. I had a blast shopping and finding some great vintage ornaments and more.
But, after shopping, we visited the Gizdich Ranch, which has an extensive selection of homemade pies. So, I ordered a slice of their Dutch Apple pie to taste if I could learn something from their recipe.
You see, recently, I baked about four apple pies trying to perfect my mother-in-law’s recipe! My hard work paid off since my mother-in-law’s apple pie recipe was tastier than their pie. Her recipe is more committed to a yummy cinnamon and nutmeg apple filling, and my crumble topping is delicious!
But besides the apple pie taste testing, I had such a great day shopping and dining out in the countryside!
Have a wonderful Saturday and enjoy this fun Saturday Chitchat newsletter!
This Week’s Inspiration – Family Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes
These Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts take 7 minutes to make! This recipe makes crispy, tender, flavorful sprouts that are quick and easy to make.
The apple cider, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and brown sugar create a tasty blend of ingredients.
If you need a simple and quick Canned Cranberry Sauce Recipe, then look no further. Canned cranberry sauce never tasted this amazing with just a few additional ingredients.
Save time in the kitchen this Thanksgiving by making this recipe.
This Easy Homemade Broccoli Cheddar Soup is packed with onions, potatoes, carrots, and broccoli.
It’s creamy and thick and has a rich spice that makes it different from other soups. And it’s a soup that simmers for only 30 minutes!
My Thanksgiving Salad Recipe with Cranberries also includes roasted yams, garbanzo beans, pears, red cabbage, and much more.
This salad is easy to throw together, and it’s colorful, healthy, and hearty. It’s a Harvest Salad that will delight your family and friends.
Hopefully, you own a Crock-Pot. Because today we are talking about my Crock-Pot Easy Chili Recipe.
This recipe is hearty and great if you are on a tight budget.
This Parmesan Crusted Halibut is an old-time family recipe! The crispy cheese topping that is smoother in butter is so delicious!
The fish tastes very mild in flavor, and the butter, onions, and parmesan cheese make this recipe so delicious!

Well, I was experimenting in the kitchen the other day and was inspired to create a pumpkin bread with a cinnamon swirl in the middle.
Can I say, this version is crazy yummy?!
This Week’s Tip – Cloth Napkins
We love to use cloth napkins. And after using them for three years, I now know that black napkins are the best.
So, if you worry about staining the napkins, black is the way to go since it hides them.
These napkins are great for every meal. I bought about three dozen of them, and now we hardly use paper napkins. Plus, it is nice to enjoy a meal with a restaurant-quality napkin.
I love them and I hope you do too!
Latest Obsession – Air Fryer
I’m a bit late using an air fryer, but I finally bought one.
I love it, and I use it almost every day. It cooks things fast and weirdly keeps the moist food inside and crispy on the outside.
We roasted broccoli in it the other day, and the taste was so fresh despite cooking.
I’m a convert and hope to share more recipes in the New Year. By the way, this model has a dehydration option!
Thanks a lot for checking out this post. I hope you found a recipe or two to cook for your own family.
