Emergency, Foolproof AND FREE! Online Recipes for Thanksgiving

Posted November 23, 2011 by sonia in Featured

Every time around this year, I think of how cooking can be such a joy–or a royal pain. Trials and tribulation are usually centered around making something new, working in someone else’s space or donning an apron after takeout and nuking Lean Cuisine almost every day.

Of course, I have advice (search “Thanksgiving” on this blog for general pointers.) But there is another way: using CooksIllustrated.com for their online recipes. You can do their free 14-day trial by clicking on the title link or here. A key theory of mine is that many people use inaccurate, untested recipes. I can assure you that these recipes are tested and delicious! Plus, unlike another favorite site of mine you can get excellent recipes without crazy, expensive ingredients or complicated steps. For those who want more nuanced and unique food combinations, here is Epicurious’ (Gourmet and Bon Appétit’s online recipe site) primer for Thanksgiving.

Below are some of my favorite recipes for Thanksgiving; hope you find this helpful. My recipe box on Epicurious.com is public. Here is a direct link to some favorite autumnal recipes that work well at Thanksgiving. I like to prepare things like the ricotta scrambled eggs or apple biscuit upside-down cake in the morning for any guests.

No sense in getting heartburn BEFORE Thanksgiving! Happy cooking–and feasting!!
