We happily celebrate Thanksgiving in our house - twice. Thank you Canada and US for allowing us to celebrate both in October AND November. We're twice as grateful (and probably twice as rolly-polly, too). In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving #2, here's a list of a bunch of my favorite recipes that I enjoy choosing from for Thanksgiving meals! Sometimes it's nice to just have them all in one location! Happy cooking!!!
Gluten-free Delicious Thanksgiving Desserts - the best part, right?
My Favorite Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes!
Vegetable or Fruit Platters - just go with what you love and arrange it nicely.
Spinach Artichoke Dip
My Dad's Favorite Shrimp Dip
Steamed Artichokes w/ butter
A spread for a small Thanksgiving - rolls, cranberry-pumpkin bread, tomatoes & fresh basil (thanks to my neighbor, turkey, gravy, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce). Yum!
Turkey, Turkey Stock/Broth & Gravy (I like to season, butter, and bake at 425 F in a straight-forward manner. I like to season according to my chicken recipe here - I just tripled it for the turkey, and basted a few times during cooking. I also made it in a pan with a rack the turkey sat on and used the drippings for a gravy, made from that same chicken recipe, just quadrupled!).
