Every year as our entire family gathered togetherat the dining room table at my grandmother’shouse on Thanksgiving, our stomachs growling aswe stared at the delectable spread before us, wefirst had to honor her annual tradition: going aroundthe table and saying what we were thankful for thatyear. Along with health, happiness and family, whatwe were
thankful for was grandma’s cooking.In celebration of a holiday centered aroundbringing families together, we’ve compiled some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes. In addition to theusual suspects of mashed potatoes and pumpkinpie, we’ve also gone outside the norm with sidessuch as Onion Apple Chutney and desserts likeBlack Walnut Cream Cake. What’s more, we offer anew twist on the centerpiece – Deep-Fried Turkey,which locks in the juiciness and flavor of the bird.We hope you enjoy these recipes, and whetheryou use them for the big Thanksgiving dinner or just to supplement a Monday night meal, we hopeyou have a lot to be thankful for this year.
