However you decide you holiday will look this year, the compilation of recipes that I have to share with you below is sure to help you create a full day of food that the entire family can enjoy! That’s what Thanksgiving is all about right? Sharing a meal with the ones you love…I know that’s what I am most thankful for!
I know for many 2020 hasn’t been the most pleasant year, and that Thanksgiving day may look a little different than it has in the past, but that doesn’t mean the celebration is going to stop. Celebrating things is my favorite, and my immediate family and I are still going to spend the day enjoying our favorites. I hope my Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up can help you make the day EXTRA special, because we all deserve it!
Now if you don’t feel like roasting a whole bird, or you aren’t going to have the biggest crowd, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. You could try your hand at my Spatchcock Chicken, who’s method you could also use for a smaller turkey too! Or try your hand at my Soy-Maple Glazed Roast Turkey, you can use the method to roast a whole bird or just a turkey breast if you are feeding a smaller group.
And if your thinking of ditching the whole idea of a traditional Thanksgiving menu altogether, I got you there too! I have a bunch of seasonal comfort food to mix and match to create the feast of your dreams.
I’ve broken the sections down into the following: breakfast/brunch, appetizers, side dishes, main course, and sweets.
No matter what type of menu you create this year, I’m confident you’ll find a little something for everyone. And you’ll also see my love for all things pumpkin shine through, I feel like Thanksgiving is the last day it is socially acceptable to promote that I eat it all year. 😛

MY LATEST RECIPES!
MY FAVORITE KITCHEN TOOLS!
Here are a few links to some of my favorite kitchen tools! You get a car, YOu get a car, YOU ALL GET A CAR…in my best Oprah voice
These Rösle Silicone Tongs are a little pricey but they will last you the rest of your life and are the softest in your hand. This is important for someone like m that cooks so much. It reduces strain, I have 4 sets in my kitchen!
These are my FAVE Nordic Ware Sheet Pans, every kitchen should have at least 2 sets of these! I think I have at least 4 of each of these.
This is my favorite pressure cooker, the Fagor is the same concept as the “Instant Pot” but easier to use in my opinion, if you don’t have one you NEED one, it will be your best friend in the kitchen!
A sharp knife is the most important tool in the kitchen, these Japanese steel “Shun” knives are my favorite! And this is a great starter set to build on. Once you try them you will be in love so use this as a foundation you can build on for years to come.
This Scanpan 11″ skillet is just the right size for almost anything you will need to cook and my best friend and a real workhorse in my kitchen, it’s also a great deal at $99. Scanpan is the best in the world for healthy cooking. It is coated with a proprietary ceramic-titanium coating that is durable while allowing you to use fewer fats and oils when cooking. It is a coating only they use. I could talk all day about my love for these pans, message me if you want more info. Here are some other sizes that are available if you are looking to outfit your kitchen with some new goodies. 8″ & 10″ Skillet set or 8″ Skillet, I still need this one for my kitchen Also, I don’t really know how to cook small so the 12.5″ is my other fave!
This giant vat of olive oil is my favorite, I decant it into a smaller bottle for my counter. Or put this spigot on top of a wine bottle!
My favorite baking dish that is so easy to clean even burnt on cheese slides right off!
This Tovolo jar scraper has to be my single favorite kitchen tool, it is definitely the most used tool in my kitchen. If you are NOT a gadget person, this is the only necessity I say is a MUST beyond the wooden spoon.
A great wood spoon is essential, this Olive Wood one is my favorite, I have more than I can count. But can you really ever have too many?
A food scale can be a very important tool in your kitchen, this one is the one I use every day!
If you love Joanna Gaines as much as I do then the ‘Magnolia Table Cookbook’ is a must in your kitchen, get a copy HERE!
