I’ve made a couple of Thanksgiving dinners in the past and I know it can be quite overwhelming. There are so many options. Should you go traditional? Or out of the box? What if someone can’t eat dairy? And another doesn’t like mashed potatoes (crazy person, no offense). It’s enough to make one reach for the wine just to help plan the menu. That is where I hope to help. With less than a week to go, I thought I would share some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes to help those of you that are in charge of the big day. With appetizers, sides and a couple of desserts there’s enough to please just about everyone.
The Main Event:
Have a great weekend!
A salad loaded to black beans, corn, avocado, tomatoes and grilled shrimp tossed in a tangy cilantro lime vinaigrette.
A sweet mixture of nectarines and blueberries topped with oat crumble and baked until golden and bubbly.
Perfectly grilled flat iron steak with a simple, yet amazing, tomato salad. It’s the perfect rustic summer meal.
The perfect bite with crunchy bread, creamy goat cheese, peppery arugula, savory salami and sweet Pino Noir sauce.
Everyone’s favorite BBQ foods collide in this creamy, delectable macaroni salad. Perfect for all of your summer get togethers.
A twist on hummus with white beans, roasted tomatoes, garlic and fresh herbs.
