BONUS: Thanksgiving Day Recipes!

Thanksgiving Recipes
If you're anything like me, you're a huge fan of Thanksgiving because of the food (yum). For me, the day is normally filled with friends, family and food: the essential trifecta for any good holiday. Are you a sports fan? Add in football for a magical fourth "f."

Thanksgiving is known for being a day of cooking. Lots and lots of cooking. Normally, you start early in the morning, roasting and basting the turkey, and you end well into the afternoon with your salads and mashed potato dishes.

As a bonus article this week, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite recipes that you can make to impress your family and friends today.

Disclaimer: I am vegetarian, so I have included some veggie-friendly and vegan recipes below.

Main Dishes

Everyone who celebrates a more traditional Thanksgiving knows that the main dish is the turkey. However, there are tons of other options available. Check out some of them here.

Side Dishes

This is personally my favorite part of Thanksgiving and I end up loading my plates with all different things. Normally, I tend to make salads, to balance the creamier dishes, as well as the very traditional, rich dishes.


Now for the dishes that are eaten most quickly in my household: desserts. I love a really great, traditional pecan or apple pie. Here are some variations that I've found that I really want to try out.


When I think about fall, cider is the first thing that comes to mind. Whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic, drinks really help the meal feel festive and wash down all of the amazing food.
