Thanksgiving Made Simple: 21 Recipes To Try This Year

As someone who has never cooked her own Thanksgiving dinner, this year is the year I’ll be attempting it. Here are some recipes to give a whirl this year.


What would Thanksgiving be without a killer main course?

Mayonnaise Roasted Turkey [x]

Don’t have enough guests coming over to justify cooking an entire turkey? Or maybe (like me) you’re just terrified of cooking a whole turkey. The solution? This Slow Cooker Turkey Breast [x].

Clearly the best part of the entire day. 

Pumpkin Bourbon Cheesecake With Spiced Pecan Crust [x]. The added benefit of this recipe is that it’s both Low Carb and Gluten Free.

Blackberry-Peach Pie [x]

Salted Caramel Sour Cream Cake [x]

And for those of you looking for a something more chocolatey (read: me), here is a Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake [x]. Also, be sure to know that this is not an easy-to-make dessert. Read the recipe a few days beforehand to get a feel of how much labor is involved.

Have a wonderful and delicious Thanksgiving! Happy eating!
