Sure, Thanksgiving is decadent. But that doesn’t mean that it needs to be filled with overly processed, synthetic foods. Maybe it’s because I’m a total foodie – in love with taste as much as quality – but I find that best Thanksgiving recipes are those that require some time in the kitchen with well-sourced ingredients.
Even though you’re bound to run into plenty of Thanksgiving fanfare over the next week, here are my favorite hardcore foodie recipes for the season. If you happen to swing by my place on the big day, you’ll find all these dishes (more or less) ready to go. I guarantee that I will have meal-planned myself a little slice of time…so that I’m not in the kitchen the whole day. And I’m able to spend it with those I love most.
