5 Thanksgiving Recipes That Will Make Your Holiday Perfect

November 12, 2014

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and now is the time to start scouting out some new recipes. We recommend trying out something different each year. This keeps the cook's interest, and allows everyone in the family to expand their culinary horizons. We also recommend trying a new dish at least once before the actual holiday. That way, any problems can be worked out, and you can put your own twist on the recipe before revealing it for Thanksgiving. Here are some new things to try that all start with familiar ingredients and end up with a delicious twist on the traditional.
