Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, it always seems to sneak up on me. Early meal planning is key here, so I’ve started collecting Thanksgiving recipes. Some are high carb dishes that need some work and others, like this one are already low-carb and ready to go.
My favorite place to hangout online is on food blogs, any free time I have is usually dedicated to reading through whatever is in my Google Reader and I subscribe to a ton of food blogs. I cam across Kitchen Simplicity, a Canadian food blog that has come up with some really great no bake Thanksgiving recipes. Including this fantastic Creamy Pumpkin Pie Dip and Mini “Pumpkin” Cheese Balls.
