Glazed Carrots And Pistachios
1/13
Glazed Carrots with Pistachios

    Toasting the pistachios brings out an irresistible nutty flavor in this fast and festive side dish.

2/13
Pear-Pecan Stuffing

    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.

3/13
Egg Dinner Rolls

    Shape these egg-rich rolls into pretty rosettes.

4/13
Green Beans with Almond Slivers

    Lightly seasoned, and sprinkled with almond slivers, these beans really show their fresh flavor.

5/13
Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Parsnips

    The subtly sweet flavor of parsnips makes ordinary mashed potatoes exceptionally delicious.

6/13
Wild Rice Stuffed Squash

    If your market doesn't carry the kind of squash specified in this recipe, substitute any hard-skinned winter variety of squash.

7/13
Oyster Stew

    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.

8/13
Vegetable-Puree Gravy

    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.

9/13
Cranberry Sauce with Lime and Ginger

    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.

10/13
Herb-Butter-Roasted Turkey

    Surround the glorious baked bird with festive trimmings, including herbs, baby squash, Seckel pears, crab apples, quinces, and a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds.

11/13
Provencale Tarts

    For a fast, fancy edge, use a fluted pastry wheel to cut the puff pastry for these elegant cheese appetizers.

12/13
Brandied Pumpkin Pie

    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.
