thanksgiving inspiration

November 22, 2009

The New York Times is currently featuring a whole host of Thanksgiving-inspired recipes and ideas. First there’s a huge number of stellar side dishes ready to rock your face off, like caramelized corn with fresh mint. Wowzers.

Next up is Mark Bittman’s article, 101 Head Starts on the Day, which is jam packed full of easy recipes for chutneys, soups, stuffings, salads, sides, breads, crackers, and desserts – all of which can be made ahead of time and reheated or served at room temp. Awesome.

Finally, a few of my favourite foodie blogs with thanksgiving recipes worthy of note include:

* thyme-roasted apples + onions from eat make read

* sweet potato buttermilk pie from smitten kitchen

* spiced sweet potatoes and chick peas from sprouted kitchen

What are your favourite Thanksgiving dishes?

Every single dish looks amazing!!! And thanks for that Mark Bittman link, it's going to take me days to get through it :P

My favourite thanksgiving dish is stuffing. I'll often skimp on the other sides just so I can treat myself to a big scoop of it :D

LOVE your dishes!

My favorite = homemade chunky cranberry sauce.

My favorite is green bean casserole – not the healthiest but who cares! I only eat it one day a year so I might as well dig in :)

Oooh I'm getting so excited for Thanksgiving! My favorites are cranberry things, stuffing and anything with sweet potatoes.


Leianna November 23, 2009 at 8:51 am

The stuffing. I LOVE the stuffing.

Stuffing is the best part. If I don't eat a decent stuffing my Thanksgiving is not complete. I also must have 'just a sliver' of pumpkin pie!

this is getting me so pumped for t-day…you have no idea. however, my sisters are pretty tradish with thanksgiving, and would not be willing to try anything new. my fam likes it tradish, so i will be stuffing myself with the requisite stuffing, green bean casserole and sweet potatos with marshamallows and brown sugar!!!!

LOVE YOU…around tonight? let's chat it up!

Oh yum… I wish I was in the US with my family this year. Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie… Thanksgiving is the best food holiday!

As a Brit we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but all the food looks wonderful.

I just found a recipe for sauteed brussels sprouts, onions, and golden raisins – I think I might use dried cranberries instead and make this dish for the big day!


Angharad November 23, 2009 at 4:56 pm

Megan – I'm about to post about brussels sprouts! I'm going to have to include this link – thanks! :)


Jenny November 23, 2009 at 6:06 pm
