A Home Cooked Thanksgiving Day🦃

The crisp autumn breeze has set in and there's a buzz in the air that can only mean one

thing, Thanksgiving is near! It's that time of year when we gather with family and friends

in our homes to express gratitude, share stories, and, of course, indulge in a feast fit for

royalty. This Thanksgiving, why not ditch the store-bought dishes and embark on a

culinary adventure in your own kitchen!

These mouthwatering ideas will have everyone at the table giving thanks. I hope sharing

some cooking tips will give you the confidence you need to tackle dinner on your own

this year. After all, your menu is now decided.

Herb Butter Turkey

Start your Thanksgiving journey with the pièce de résistance – a perfectly roasted

turkey. Brine it overnight for juicy tenderness, then rub it down with a delectable herb-

infused butter before roasting. The result? A golden-brown masterpiece that will have

your guests singing praises.

Savory Sausage Stuffing

Elevate your stuffing game with a savory blend of sausage and aromatic herbs. Toasted

bread cubes, sautéed vegetables, and the rich flavors of sage and thyme come together

to create a stuffing that's crispy on the outside and delightfully moist on the inside.

Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Thanksgiving is not complete without a generous helping of mashed potatoes. Take

them to the next level by infusing cream, butter, and roasted garlic. Whip until velvety

smooth, and watch as your guests take seconds (and maybe thirds).

Homemade Cranberry Orange Sauce

Say goodbye to canned cranberry sauce and embrace the zesty goodness of

homemade cranberry orange sauce. Fresh cranberries, orange zest, and a hint of

cinnamon create a vibrant, flavorful condiment that will complement your turkey


Maple Glazed Roasted Vegetables

Add a splash of color to your Thanksgiving spread with maple-glazed roasted

vegetables. Brussels sprouts, carrots, and butternut squash are delicious together in a

harmonious blend of sweetness and savory goodness. The secret? A drizzle of pure

maple syrup that caramelizes to perfection.

Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Crust

Cap off your Thanksgiving feast with a slice of heaven – pumpkin pie with a pecan

crust. The velvety pumpkin filling meets the crunchy perfection of a pecan crust,

creating a dessert that's the epitome of fall flavors. Top it with a dollop of freshly

whipped cream for the perfect sweet ending.

This Thanksgiving, make the heart of your home—the kitchen—the center of attention

with these unforgettable, home-cooked recipes. Take time to gather around the table,

give thanks, and indulge in a feast that not only warms the stomach but also the soul.

May your Thanksgiving be filled with love, laughter, and the joy of sharing delicious

moments with those you hold dear. Happy cooking!
