I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am so inspired by fall flavors! Apples, squash, pumpkin, sweet potato… the list goes on. I’ll never tire of creating new fall recipes!

    These remind me of when I was in grade school and teachers would get mini donuts (Munchkins?) and I would HOARD THEM ALL… And shovel them in my face! Awww the memories, lol!

    Lol…you’re so funny and you’re certainly entitled to vent! I love traditions. My family definitely does the whole turkey deal here in CT, US. However, I’m half Italian so we sometimes ALSO do lasagna. Sooo muuuch foood.
    I need a good healthy snack to counteract that day (and really any other day where I’m not a healthy eater) and this one will do just fine. I love the ingredients! I love that it’s easy! And I love that I don’t have to bake them. Clear winner in my book. 🙂

    Your apple pie bites look delicious! Since I’m American, we celebrate Thanksgiving. Since my mom is Italian we don’t do the typical Thanksgiving. We have turkey, but with raviolis, artichoke torta (a family specialty), a veggie dish, focaccia bread, homemade cranberry sauce and salad. For dessert, we always have pumpkin pie and usually an apple dessert, too! Just thinking about it is making my mouth water!

    I’m a proud Canadian and I found myself laughing at every “beef” you had with our holiday. However, I am incredibly excited to go home and visit with my family this Thanksgiving, moving out has made me more than a little homesick! I think I’ll make these for the bus ride home, something tells me travelling during rush hour will make me hungry!

    I’m not in category A, B, or C. I am Canadian, but I am not horrified this post. I slightly agree that we are confused on the days, and it just makes for confusion when planning the weekend. I guess it is good that we are still thankful haha.

    These bites look fantastic. It’s always great to have another bites recipe!

    I am in category B! 🙂 I love Thanksgiving. Our tradition is actually the next day. After all the traditional food, we go out to dinner and to the movies the day after. When I lived in Australai I made a whole American Thanksgiving for all my Aussie friends. It was the middle of spring and the turkey was $80 for only 6kilos.

    I wish we celebrated Thanksgiving- I love Turkey! I love the simplicity of this recipe- I think I need a food processor, instead of going to Mum’s with ingredients and using hers!

    So jelly of your dual citizenship! 😉

    So it’s totally cool that you have duel citizenship!! I back you up 100% on this, and not just because I am American. October is for Halloween, and should NOT have to be shared!! SPACE THAT SHIT OUT! November just oozes Thanksgiving for me and YES the food must be spot on!!
