Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I can’t think of a better way to spend Thanksgiving day than surrounded by food and family. We’ll be traveling for Thanksgiving this year, so I won’t have the chance to cook something for the meal. For other family get-togethers, I usually bring a side or casserole. I’ve always felt like I needed to bring something homemade for it to be “good enough.”
One taste of Marie Callender’s Dutch Apple Pie and I realized that my notion that I had to cook something homemade was wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. I believe that I could walk in with Marie Callender’s Dutch Apple Pie at any of our family events and everyone would not only love it, but request it for future gatherings. No one would mind that I didn’t pour hours into it, because it’s taste like I did.
It’s a simple as placing the pie on a cookie sheet, baking for about an hour, crumbling the included topping over the pie, and the returning it to the oven for another 10 minutes. The hardest part is definitely waiting for the pie to cool! My husband impatiently when I baked the Marie Callender’s Dutch Apple Pie Sunday evening. He asked me several times if it was cool enough to eat and when he finally got a taste, he raved about it. He ate two slices and told me it was the best pie I’d ever made. 🙂
As I was writing this post, I grabbed Marie Callender’s Dutch Apple Pie out of the refrigerator and finished the last of it off. I wanted to make sure I had done enough research, haha. You know a pie is good when you can’t even write about it without eating it! Today, I am definitely thankful for an easy, no stress dessert that I would feel great serving to anyone.

I have partnered with The Motherhood and Marie Callender’s to encourage you to slow down, stress less, and savor this holiday season. All thoughts and opinions remain my own, as always.
I slow down to get in touch with family traditions to further comforting peace during the hustle and bustle.
We just moved into our first house after living with my parents for 3 years (thanks economy). So we are excited to do Thanksgiving here. My 96 year old grandma called me and said she was coming over for Thanksgiving and she was bringing the pies. I told her she didn’t have to cook pies – come on she is 96. She said oh no she wouldn’t be baking them, she would be buying Marie Calendars pies because they were so good. So on Sunday when my parents and kids took her grocery shopping, she purchased her 2 pies and was telling my daughters how great they are. So I guess I will be tasting my first one on Thanksgiving!
Let Brian and my mom cook! LOL I will make up for it when I decide to bake my Christmas cookies!
We are going out for Thanksgiving! But I am still making stuffing to have at home for “leftovers.” I can’t get enough lol!
That looks delicious
I plan everything in advance as best I can so that I am not super stressed.
I slow down by making as little as possible from scratch and assigning different foods to different people. For instance, my boyfriend LOVES apple pie but I can’t stand apples so it’s up to him to provide that. My mom and sister both want green bean casserole but I hate green beans as well so thats up to my sister. My dad wants turkey so he gets to do that. I want ham and pea salad so those are mine to do. ALL desserts are store-bought except pumpkin pie since thats Dads fav. Hes diabetic so we make that one with fake sugar. Everything else gets written down and every person that comes is responsible for at least one thing.
We have a new baby this holiday season, so we’re definitely keeping it slow and relaxed as much as possible. <3 With three little people in the house now, we are starting more and more to keep what is *really* important about our traditions and throwing the rest out the window. 😉
I plan to share memories with my siblings around the dinner table.
Current comment prompt on Rafflecopter is “Leave a comment on this blog post, then click “Enter”” , so I have no idea what to comment on. Thanks for the giveaway.
Thanks, Carly. The correct prompt was showing up for some, but not others, so it must have been a Rafflecopter glitch. No one will be disqualified because of their comment.
I do as much ahead of time as possible.
The Dutch apple pie looks so good 🙂
Thanks for this giveaway
I’m letting my mother in law cook the turkey!

I am going out this weekend to start my shopping by starting at local craft shows.
MARIE MAKES GOOD EATINGS
Thanks for the giveaway! I’m just gonna relax and spent as much time as possible with my family over the holidays.
Just have our family and not make so much food. We always have way too much.
we take our vacation this time of year to spend it ith family
I plan on baking ahead and enjoying the break with my children instead of stressing over everything.
I can slow down on the day because I try to do as much as possible, days before.

I plan on doing a lot of my shopping online so I can enjoy more of the holiday!
I also didn’t have a comment suggestion but love her pies`

Thanks for the giveaway >^..^<
I’m not going to stress out about decorating or baking. I’ll still do both but it’s not going to be at a pace that I can’t enjoy. I’m going to do it to enjoy myself, not be rushed about it. Thanks.
Wonderful giveaway! We always love doing crafts it helps us keep calm.
The Dutch apple looks delicious.
I plan to spend it with my hubby and girls. I don’t want to have to run around to different houses and entertain. I love my family but I think it’s time we spend a holiday with just us. Thank you!
I slow down by enjoying the tree lights with peace and quiet.
I just started a Yoga class – that ought to help!
I plan to slow down by hunkering down with my kiddos inside and playing games, baking and watching holiday films.
I think Marie Callender’s makes the best Dutch Apple Pie ever. Thank you for doing this giveaway
and giving us all a chance to win. Have a Happy Holiday Season.
Thanks for doing the giveaway
I plan on limiting my online time and actually watching a few movies with the kids
This year instead of cooking we ordered Thanksgiving dinner from the Cracker Barrel. This is the first year I really got to relax and enjoy everyone.
Waiting for the pie to cool is the hardest part…
today is my husband’s birthday.
That looks delicious!
yummy pie flavor
We try to make sure we have family movie night each week. It gives us time to just relax and be together.
I’m sticking with my regular routine of eating right and exercising.
I am going to wrap every gift as I buy it so I am not frantically wrapping on Christmas Eve this year.
I eat so much this time of year…and this is one of the reasons!! LOL!! 🙂
We are taking more time to enjoy experiences this year. A cup of coffee with a good friend, an evening looking at lights, movies and popcorn in PJs
Thanks for the chance.
Just relaxing and spending time with family 🙂

i plan on taking off a few extra days from work
I plan to slow down and spend time with my family who i do not see much through out the year.
This year has been TOUGH…the holidays force me to relax and stop worrying, so I am going to take that opportunity to get geared up to fight the good fight come January.

I plan to turn off my phone and iPad when I visit my family for the holidays so I can really slow down the pace and enjoy my time with them as opposed to constantly checking my email and messages!
I slow down and savor by planning and prepping as much as possible!
Unfortunately, my life doesn’t slow down much but i savor the moments i’m with the kids and try to forget about everything else when i’m with them
Thanks for the giveaway.
That pie looks delicious. I should stop and pick one up rather than making one this year!
just like this. Buy Marie Calendars
I love the holidays and all the food i get to eat
We are normally on the run Christmas day. This year we are staying home.
Thanks for the giveaway
Thanks for the giveaway
try to finish shopping earlier this year so can hang out with family more
i plan to play some soothing Christmas music
I’m taking Friday off to do all of the Christmas shopping.
I’ll be spending more time indoor with the family
I will try to delegate out some responsibilities over the holidays and not overload myself with plans
I am having a baby any day now so I plan to just enjoy my family throughout the holidays.
I’m going to try and get as much stuff done in advance as possible so can relax with the kids more on christmas eve and christmas day
Just by enjoying the holiday and refusing to stress about it
I just don’t try to do it all anymore. I let others do some of the baking and decorating.
I am doing my shopping earlier than the week before which is stressful.

I try to do more before, so I can have quality time with my sons
I’m already done! We are loving the christmas movies and visiting with friends and family!
Pie helps, plus I’m going to savor the holiday by spending time with my family
I agree. People stress out over the holiday by trying to do everything. Slow down and enjoy the TIME with your family that’s what counts. Cooking everything yourself and presents are not as important as the moments you spend together.

I plan to make time to sit and relax with my family and watch some Christmas movies.
Everyone shares in preparing and bringing the food as well as the clean up afterwards.
I’ll be relaxing with good food, including pie
i am going to slow down by not stressing about every detail

Relax with the family
I am not going to stress over having a perfect holiday.I am gonna go with the flow and take it as it comes.
I am going to wrap gifts as I get them, instead of the mad rush to wrap everything Christmas Eve.
Stop rushing and take my time, and get all my shopping done early this year.
We are moving at the beginning of January so there won’t be much slowing down here!
Thanks for the giveaway. I’m slowing down this season by taking a little time off of work
There looks delicious!
I’m letting my husband help out with the Christmas shopping
Take more time to do the things I love..

We slow down and take it easy during the holidays by not making gifting a priority. It’s nothing big.
I had my presents bought before Thanksgiving so I can relax and enjoy the holiday season

Last year I spent a lot of time obsessing about getting gifts taken care of early, but ended up running into a lot of problems in doing that, this year, I have not been making a big deal about it, and it has been a lot less stress.
Thanks for the chance!
I’m shopping online and started early
I wish I could slow down. THis is the time that I have to kick in double speed in order to get everything done.
We have set aside lots of time to travel and visit so we don’t feel rushed
I plan to slow down and savor the holiday season by doing lots of seasonal baking. I love to cook and baking is fun for me.
Love pie. Thanks.
Apple pie is one of my faves!
We spent the day with my mother in law and then did our Black Friday shopping that night.
I am going to slow down and order some food for Christmas dinner.
I have Christmas Eve and day off from work, and I plan to spend both days with family just enjoying each other and having some laughs.
I can’t wait to play Santa this year. My daughter is 3 and “gets” it this year 🙂
I don’t stress at the holidays, unless I have to cook for a lot of people.
we always enjoy just putting our feet up in the evenings and watching some good uplifting family movies together!
we are spending the nights at the grandparents so we can have dinner and christmas bfast in the morning
Staying at my parents house & just relaxing.
