In need of Thanksgiving recipes?

Here are a few of my favorites that I pulled from my past entries. I hope they help you plan your dinner!

Pre-meal nibbles:

Really good roasted red pepper dip - yummy and health concious.

Candied Pecans - Addictive. You could add them to a salad as well! Or on top of sweet potatoes. Or just eat them straight like my family does.

Pecan Goat Cheese Balls - a fancy twist on a classic nosh.

Parmesan Prociutto Stuffed Mushrooms - Everybody loves these. Except vegetarians.


Acorn Squash Soup - I love starting the meal off with soup. It's so warm and yummy.


My only turkey recipe on this blog - ridiculously indulgent and amazing. It calls for truffle butter. Enough said.


Chestnut Leek and Apple Dressing - a fun, slightly different dressing (or stuffing if you want to put it in the bird - but don't do that).

Zucchini Gratin - you can get local zucchini in parts of the world that aren't the Northeast right now. And nothing says Thanksgiving like drenching green vegetables in cheese and cream.

Quinoa with Sun Dried Tomatoes - Great for the gluten free and super healthy (like my dad).

Braised Cabbage - Did you know that some parts of the country serve sauerkraut at Thanksgiving? This is a little more universally pleasing.

Sauteed Swiss Chard - Quick, simple, healthy. And it tastes good!

Simple Turkey Giblet Stock - great for making gravy!

Quick Glazed Root Vegetables - very appropriate for fall.


Alli's Peanut Butter Pie - If you like peanut butter dessert, this is a great way to go.

Mixed Berry Pie - A classic.

Sweet Potato Pie - Incredibly good, and a nice change if you're sick of pumpkin.

I'll post some more this week as well, I hope! Get ready to eat!
