Thanksgiving Sides, Starters & Desserts Recipe Round-Up

"Marie Callendar's" Cornbread

Great for the table or as a base for your favorite cornbread stuffing

Happy Rice

A simple side to accompany your Thanksgiving turkey. For a more festive flavor, add 1/4 tsp. of dried rubbed sage, or swap the thyme for poultry seasoning.

Family-Friendly Cheese Board

Fun ideas for putting together a cheese board that will please even the pickiest of guests. Put this out while dinner is cooking and everyone will stay happy until the main event.

Roasted Carrot Soup with Cumin & Thyme

Perfect for a first course or as an appetizer when portioned in small glasses as "shooters". Silky and savory!

Delicious Dill Dip

My mom's classic dip is the best pre-meal snack -- she still brings it to every holiday party. It tastes best on black olives stuck onto your fingertips. I know from experience.

Easy Ham & Cheese Puff Pastry

Cut this into small squares and stick a toothpick in each one. Makes a great appetizer, and you never have to tell how easy it was. That can be just between us.

DIY Pumpkin Puree

For the ambitious, make this up this week and stash it in the freezer until you're ready to make your pumpkin pies. I should warn you, though, once you swap this for the canned stuff, you might never want to go back.

Aunt Sonja's Cherry Squares

A delicious alternative to pie, and one of my absolute favorites! (Can be made in advance and frozen, if desired.)

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Not your average apple pie -- it's better!
