In case you missed it, we live Insata'd our Thanksgiving day in the test kitchen. Below are our photos. You can also see them and more exclusive pics by following us on Instagram.

We hope you had a lovely and delicious Thanksgiving Yummies! xoxo

 A beautiful and simple reminder of gratitude. It hung in my Nannie's kitchen for as long as I can remember. Now it hangs in mine. One of my most treasured things.

 Our bacon-wrapped dates are always a hit while everyone watches the Macy's Parade!

 We bathed our turkey in fresh flavors from home: cilantro, lime juice and butter.

 Meet TiTo! Our fresh and saucy Thanksgiving turkey. All suited up and ready for some lovin' from the oven.

Our snack tray. Gotta keep our energy up while we prep our side dishes.

 CakePop made the most amazing giblet gravy. Here it is simmering away!

 We gave our traditional cranberry sauce a kick! We took out the lemons and added jalapeƱos. So delicious, and not at all spicy. I swear!

 Just the smell of the turkey has knocked Taffy out.

 It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without our Cranberry Sparklers. Simple mixture of 1 bottle of champagne, 1/2 bottle of cranberry juice, 3 shots lemon vodka.

 ToddlerBaby's Cranberry Sparkler is a little simpler to make. Equal parts cranberry juice and sparkling water.

 Red chile scalloped potatoes. The dish I was most excited about, and the one that turned out to be the biggest hit!

 TiTo has browned and he is ready to carve.

 Another shot of TiTo in all his juicy glory.

 Green chile stuffing. Are you noticing a trend yet? We couldn't go home this year so we brought all the flavors of New Mexico to us.

CakePop's famous green bean casserole. This, I just can't get enough of. She adds dijon mustard and bacon! 

 Dinner is ready but ToddlerBaby, CoffeeMaker and Taffy are all fast asleep. What to do?!

 CakePop to the rescue! When in doubt open a glass of wine.

 Some quality sister quiet time after a long day of cooking.

 He's up and ready to carve. Now to wake the baby.

 It's much easier to wake up from your nap when there's gravy involved.

Happy Thanksgiving Yummies. Cheers!
