It’s the food holiday to end all food holidays so obviously it’s my favorite day of the year (besides my birthday). I love testing new recipes but Thanksgiving is definitely a time for all the classics like stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, etc. Here are a few of my favorite thanksgiving recipes that give those classics just the slightest update.
Cranberry Relish: This recipe is both ridiculously easy and ridiculously tasty. Of course, it comes from my food crush, Anthony Bourdain.
Duchess Baked Potatoes: These will change your life. Seriously. People go crazy over them (it’s probably all the heavy cream and eggs) and you can make them ahead and reheat. Perfect for the Thanksgiving cooking marathon.
Arugula Persimmon Salad with Avocado: This sounds delicious and a great contrast to all the heavy Turkey day classics. I may just throw in some pomegranate seeds too for good measure.
Dry Brined Roast Turkey: Dry brining sounds about 10,000 times easier than a traditional brine so you better believe I’m going to test this one out.
Apple Pandowdy: Who doesn’t love a simple dessert. Like an apple but easier.
Amanda Hunt Dusk Necklace | $106 | I’m obsessed with all of Amanda Hunt’s designs and I’m loving the way this necklace is layered with her other pieces. Ethereal yet modern.
Spicer Bags Big Booth Tote | $118 | Made in San Francisco by fellow SF Made member Sarah Gemmell. These bags are built to last and they look pretty stylish. Great for heading to the farmers market or as your carry on catch all.
Unurth Carved Planter | $58 | Jen at Unurth has an incredible design sense, mixing textures and colors reminiscent of under sea worlds and lunar landscapes. Plus they feel pretty good. One of my absolute favs.
