So how’s your Thanksgiving meal planning going? Have you already been grocery shopping, or are you saving it for the weekend? Do you have pie crust dough in the freezer? How about writing down your cooking schedule?
We know you probably have the big stuff figured out, but we’re of the opinion that there’s always room for an extra side, appetizer, salad or dessert. Oh, and don’t forget a fun cocktail! Whether you’re doing it all yourself or sharing the work with family and friends, we thought we could help tie up some loose ends with these straightforward, delicious recipes from our fabulous members.
You know everyone’s coming hungry, so give ‘em something creamy and satisfying to munch. Roasted Red Pepper Baked Ricotta is just that. Make the red pepper mixture and crostini in advance for easy assembly.
It’s always fun to be greeted with a cocktail! This one has bourbon, maple syrup, lemon and thyme to get the party started.
Healthy things are allowed, too! This Spinach, Arugula, Almond and Pomegranate Salad is fresh, light and colorful.
How cute are these Individual Sweet Potato Boats? Nice little serving vessels, and we love what’s inside.
A lighter, fresher green bean dish. No oven time required for Green Beans with Caramelized Onions and Pecans!
If you were ever to decide to take a break from regular mashed potatoes, this would be a pretty stellar alternative. Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes with Pancetta. Yum, right?
There are plenty of smooth, creamy foods on the table, so it’s always nice to introduce more texture. With spinach and cranberries, this Butternut Squash Wild Rice covers a lot of bases.
We can’t let you go without a little more bourbon. These low-fuss Bourbon Maple Glazed Carrots cook up easily on the stovetop.
Pie is the default dessert of Thanksgiving, but it’s great to mix it up with another option, like this Apple Cake. Gorgeous!
