The Thanksgiving Roundup

27 Nov

Next year, I promise to post some recipes BEFORE Thanksgiving so you can actually use them.  However, everything was so delicious I figured I’d still share the bounty. Many of these recipes are not holiday specific and I recommend trying some of them soon!

Normally, my husband and I host Thanksgiving at our apartment with his mother, sister, and whatever other family decides to show up. They couldn’t make it this year, so we were invited to share the meal with our friends, K and N, and their family.  I will be sharing all of my recipes in the coming days. I may have some guest entries from the other chefs as well.
