Can you believe that in four years of blogging, I’ve never posted a Thanksgiving turkey recipe?
Well, it’s true. But over the past four holiday seasons, I’ve posted a lot of other delicious Thanksgiving recipes, so I thought that I’d highlight a few of them for you (you’re welcome). This way they’ll be fresh on your mind when you’re grocery shopping next week!
Starting off, it’s not Thanksgiving without a plate of traditional stuffing — we put dried apricots in ours, and they’re absolutely to die for. I usually hate celery, but Thanksgiving stuffing is the one recipe where I love it! And then on the side, take your pick of glazed carrots, roasted green beans with shallots and almonds, a root vegetable mix, or any other fall-themed side dish (yes, my family once cooked farro for Thanksgiving).
And for dessert — obviously, you guys are going to make my mom’s apple pie recipe! How could you resist? But in case you want a wider variety, I have excellent holiday recipes for incredibly easy two-ingredient maple soufflés, indulgent flourless chocolate cake, mini lemon tarts, and homemade petit fours (these would actually be a fun–messy–one to do with kids)!
And if you really neeeed a turkey recipe, we used Martha Stewart’s t-shirt turkey recipe last year, and it was absolutely terrific.
