Thanksgiving is a BIG deal at my house and since I love to cook, I say bring on the appetites! With only two weeks to go I will be doing a lot of shopping this weekend and the next. I have discovered a few great recipes over the years that I am now sharing with you. The dishes are a mix of family recipes handed down and some tried and true from other fine cooks. I make a lot of my side dishes the night before so I am not going absolutely crazy in the kitchen Thanksgiving day. I also have a double oven which is a lifesaver and I highly recommend if you are in the market. I had the Samsung Flex Duo Electric Range in my old house but will switch to the gas range in our new! I hope y’all have an absolutely blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for!

I use a lot of Bourbon this time of year so allow yourself time to sneak a sip (don’t forget the glasses and whiskey stones!). A table runner, candlesticks and fresh flowers are a quick and easy way to create a beautiful table.
