thanksgiving favorites!

November 17th, 2011

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 fallthemed 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 souffl├ęs, 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.

    I made the apple pie last year and it was beyond amazing! And I plan to again. I might see if my mom wants me to bring a side dish as well, and try those green beans. Yummy!

    The petit fours are so cute! I will definitely keep them in mind for my next party!
