14 Thanksgiving Recipes 2012

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn't until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  We get up early at my house to start cookin' and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. My daughter loves watching Santa Claus come through at the end. She'll stand in front of the TV and wave back at him.  Later on, all the family comes over.  The boys usually go outside & play football or croquet while the women hang out indoors chatting & cooking.  Sitting around & enjoying good food with family & friends is always much needed.  As night falls, we all retreat outdoors in front of a bonfire, share stories, songs, and sip hot cocoa.

Thanksgiving isn't too far away.  I always plan ahead of time.  My relatives love the new recipes I try out every year.  Are you a traditional stick-with-the-same-recipes-year-after-year type, or a switch-it-up type?  Either way, these Thanksgiving recipes should help you prepare a incredible, comforting meal for your family.  Click titles for recipes.
