Let’s start with Thanksgiving Staples

Then add a traditional side dish…

Throw in some veggie sides that everyone will love…

  • Elevated Green Bean Casserole – Not your Mamma’s Green Bean Casserole…well it is, but done one better. It is easy to prepare and you know what is in it! No mystery canned ingredients here.
  • Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Fig – One of the most popular posts on the site, this recipe is an ideal way to prepare sprouts for the most skeptical veggie eater. Don’t worry if fresh figs aren’t available, the fig jam can provide the flavor.
  • Barley with Mushrooms and Onion – This ‘goes-with-everything’ side dish can be made hours ahead and reheated at the last minute. Beware, it does require 50 minutes in the oven if you are oven-space constrained.
  • Fall Harvest Salad – This delicious and super nutritious Kale and Apple salad is amazing. It’s full of roasted pecans, crisp juicy apples, and a salty bite of pecorino cheese. Yum!

Thanksgiving is all about family and traditions. Here are three must-haves in Laura’s family…

  • Aunt Donna’s Rolls – Yes, you can make your own dinner rolls! (Wouldn’t that blow away YOUR family!)
  • Dumpling Noodles – These wonderfully slurpy noodles are served in a rich bone broth.
  • Pumpkin Soup – This spicy pumpkin soup is the definition of fall comfort food.

No Thanksgiving meal is complete without PIE!

  • Pumpkin Pie – In our house, Thanksgiving dinner requires pumpkin pie! We have two versions on the site, traditional and vegan!
  • Pumpkin Cheesecake Bar – Which you absolutely need to make.
  • Apple Pie – This caramel apple pie is everything that apple pie should be.
  • Pecan Pie – This classic Souther Pecan Pie is my Grammy’s recipe. It’s made with maple syrup and a metric ton of pecans. It’s the BEST pecan pie you’ve ever had.
