How to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, pie, and all the trimmings.
Glazed Carrots with Pistachios
Toasting the pistachios brings out an irresistible nutty flavor in this fast and festive side dish.
Egg Dinner Rolls
Pears, pecans, and nutmeg create a festive holiday twist on old-fashioned stuffing. It's equally delicious when baked in a casserole and served as a side dish.
Green Beans with Almond Slivers
Shape these egg-rich rolls into pretty rosettes.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Parsnips
Lightly seasoned, and sprinkled with almond slivers, these beans really show their fresh flavor.
Wild Rice Stuffed Squash
The subtly sweet flavor of parsnips makes ordinary mashed potatoes exceptionally delicious.
If your market doesn't carry the kind of squash specified in this recipe, substitute any hard-skinned winter variety of squash.
This rich and creamy stew is always a favorite. Cook oysters gently over moderate heat -- just enough for the edges to curl, or they'll become tough and rubbery.
Cranberry Sauce with Lime and Ginger
Scraping up the crusty, flavorful browned bits of turkey and using some of the drippings left in the roasting pan make this wine-flavored concoction extra delicious.
The perfect accompaniment to the holiday bird, this maple-syrup-sweetened sauce cooks in less than 15 minutes and can be made several days before the feast.
Surround the glorious baked bird with festive trimmings, including herbs, baby squash, Seckel pears, crab apples, quinces, and a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds.
Brandied Pumpkin Pie
For a fast, fancy edge, use a fluted pastry wheel to cut the puff pastry for these elegant cheese appetizers.
We've added a little brandy for a tasty variation on classic pumpkin pie. Topped with whipped cream and ginger, it's the perfect finale to your Thanksgiving feast.
