We love the holiday season, because it means plenty of time to share and connect with our family and loved ones!

Today, we’re sharing some of our family favorite recipes for Thanksgiving and Holiday Gatherings.


We hope that these recipes give you a little inspiration for your upcoming get-togethers, and also a varied and inclusive selection for different dietary needs! Wishing you and your kin a fabulous holiday season from all of us here at Pinto Carpentry.


This Sheetpan Chickpea and Tomato bake with Feta is a wonderful one-pan dish that’s sure to please your veggie guests. It’s warm, hearty, and delicious enough to enjoy even if you’re a meat-eater!


This One-Pan Mexican Quinoa dish is hearty enough to be a main dish, but light and healthy enough for a side. Plenty of proein, fresh flavors, and great texture.


Get creative with your sweet potatoes with the Sweet Potato and Quinoa Skillet with Kale and Sage for another beautiful and convenient holiday dish.


Smooth, creamy, and perfectly autumnal! That’s how we’d describe this One-Pot Sweet Potato Soup recipe.


Dress up your hum-drum boiled carrots and swap them for these delectable Roasted Brown Butter Honey and Garlic Carrots.




Looking for a warm, comforting, and slightly sweet soup for appetizer round? This gorgeous Carrot and Ginger soup is a real one-pot wonder.


Wow your guests with these absolutely incredible Stuffed Baked Potatoes with Herb Dip!


Thse velvety, sumtupous potato dumplings are stuffed with woodsy, earthy mushrooms and are a beautiful addition to any holiday spread!


These Apple-Pie cookies by FoodLove are a great kid-friendly recipe that you can make together with little ones, and they’ll be a real palate pleaser!


This mostly hands-off recipe for Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes gives a wonderful option for easy-peasy sides that will please a crowd, and kids will be able to help you put it together in a jiffy by plopping it all into the pot.


Move over, stinky brussels sprouts! We love a good meal with a hidden punch of vitamin-packed vegetables like this Healthy Mac and Cheese with Veggies for a creamy, cheesy side, making it a surefire hit for holiday meals.



Pumpkin Pie Twists are a great bake-and-take snack or dessert that’ll be a home-run hit for every holiday event. Best of all, it comes together in a real pinch, and is great for kids and parents to make together.


It’s no secret that a gorgeous roast bird is the centerpiece to holiday dinners, and this Easy, No-Fuss Thanksgiving Turkey is roasty, toasty, and perfectly juicy.


Switch up your stuffing game for this delicious, savory, and bright Cornbread Stuffing! It’s also gluten free friendly! And we have a dairy-free cornbread stuffing here too.


And of course no thanksgiving dinner would be complete without good ol’ American Green Bean Casserole! We love this take on the classic family dish from Bon Appetit.
