Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and so I thought I would compile a little roundup of recipes from the blog that might give you some new ideas or helpful tips. These are some of my favorites - some oldies but goodies! There's everything from a very different way to make turkey to a fun version of pumpkin pie.  I hope you enoy some of these posts!

Happy Thanksgiving! 


Make Ahead Buffet Mashed Potatoes 

Worried about having the time or energy to make mashed potatoes while you're juggling the turkey, side dishes and all your relatives?  You can make this dish the day before Thanksgiving and have it all ready to pop in the oven on Thanksgiving Day or even the week before Thanksgiving and freeze it.  It's delicious. 




Classic Pumpkin Roll

Want something a little different than plain old Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream?  This classic Pumpkin Roll will be just different enough to tempt your family.  




Rolled Turkey Breast Stuffed with Cranberries, Apples, Walnuts
So you don't want to cook a whole turkey but just a whole turkey breast is so boring? This version can add a lot of gourmet flair to your turkey.  It's a whole turkey breast that's deboned (with step by step photos) and stuffed with a delicious stuffing of fruit and nuts.  Check it out. 



How to Make Homemade Chicken Stock

You use the pan drippings and some chicken stock to make gravy, right?  But what if you had a super rich, homemade reduced and concentrated stock to add to the gravy?  It's just a little addition that makes a big difference.  You can make it the week before. 


Silky Chestnut Soup

I bet your guests have never had Chestnut Soup.  And this recipe comes from Thomas Keller - it's a winner and delicious. 



Cranberry Upside Down Cake

A beautiful, delicious special dessert that is easy that comes from Chez Panisse.  If you want something different for dessert for Thanksgiving, this is it.



Pumpkin Cake with Salted Caramel Mousse

Here's another dessert that might give you something different to serve but still has a Thanksgiving flair. And the caramel mousse is crazy delicious.

All the recipes are mouth-watering. I especially like the idea of make-ahead mashed potatoes. I really dislike making them at the last minute. With all the kids and grandkids around I like to have as much done as possible. Great ideas! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

The link for Rolled Turkey Breast Stuffed with Cranberries, Apples, Walnuts is not working. When I click on it, it takes me to the How to Make Homemade Chicken Stock recipe.:(

Interesting! We all love Italian food and restaurants. But these bloggers make our work easier by writing out the specialties of restaurants, food joints and about the menu in particular. It gives a lot of information for foodies like me, to taste new food every time I read their blog. Awaiting your next blog.
