sw potatoe with marsh sauceGet out your Thanksgiving Pants, for in one week and one day, we Americans will be eating, and thanking!, a ton. If you are at a lost for what to make for your holiday guests, be lost no more.  Many amazing ideas and recipes are just waiting to be found at Pinterest.  Here are a few to get you started:

Kraft Recipes is brimming with ideas; many interesting pins from both the “traditional” as well as the “with a twist” categories.  A few that caught my eye (and taste buds) are the Cranberry-Pineapple Minis, such an ingenious way to serve cranberry sauce; the Bacon, Pear & Walnut Stuffing with Maple Drizzle, wow, that may be all I need for the day; and a fun yummy for the kids is Pumpkin-Spiced Whoopie Pies with Ginger Cream.

Of course, Martha is filled with ideas when it comes to holiday gatherings.  Check out her Sweet Potato Fries with Brown-Butter Marshmallow Sauce or Savory Stuffed Sweet Potatoes for some unique ways to serve this Thanksgiving side dish.  For the kitchen adventurous check out these Olive Rolls, these list yeast as an ingredient, and for some of us that means adventurous : ) Don’t forget the turkey, this Roast Turkey with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze has got my vote!

There are plenty of Pinterest Boards devoted to just one item. So if you are looking for numerous ideas for Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Sauces and Gravies, and Stuffing; a plethora of inspiration awaits.  Of course, there are thousands of dessert ideas to be found. The same can be said for turkey recipes. I am going to go outside of Pinterest for a bit here, because I also want to point you to 17,384 Turkey Recipes. Warning: if you are the indecisive type, you may want to steer clear of this link.

And so to you I say:

May your Stuffing be tasty

May your turkey be plump

May your potatoes ‘n gravy have nary a lump

May your yams be delicious

May your pies take the prize

May your Thanksgiving dinner bring joy to your life!

Happy Thanksgiving!
