13 Amazing Recipes to Add to Your Thanksgiving Menu

Thanksgiving is approaching and while some people have had their menu and guest list planned out for months, a few people leave the planning to the last minute. If you fall into the second category, don’t be afraid because we have some amazing recipes for you to add to your Thanksgiving menu. There are so many recipe options that you can choose from: The Daily Meal’s Culinary Content Network gave us amazing turkey, dessert, and side dishes. You can make a stuffing filled turkey breast for Thanksgiving, Parker House rolls with honey and brown butter, or add a farro stuffing recipe to your menu.

French Apple Tart

While I love creating beautiful cakes and darling confectionaries, it's simple, rustic desserts like this French apple tart that truly make me happy. It's the uncomplicated combination of butter, sugar, and fresh fruit that will overwhelm your senses and reach the very deepest part of you. The sweet scent of sliced apples glazed with fig preserves will make anyone appreciate the art of baking with fruit. On a bed of buttery, flaky puff pastry, there are few things greater to enjoy after a full meal with family and friends.—Mon Petit Four

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Butternut Squash, Pomegranate, and “Fried” Goat Cheese

We’ve all come to appreciate the crispy, caramelized flavor of a well-roasted sprout, but have you ever tried them raw? Sliced nice and thin, raw Brussels sprouts have a texture more tender than cabbage, but more substantial than lettuce. They can stand up to a myriad of bold toppings and dressings without ever taking over. Raw Brussels sprouts are sweet, mild, and fresh. This recipe combines Brussels sprouts with butternut squash, pomegranate, and goat cheese for a delicious and well-rounded salad. — Coley Cooks

Gratin Dauphinois

Tender sliced potatoes layered with butter, cream, and melted Gruyère. I get excited just thinking about it. Is this dish health-conscious? No, most definitely not. But then again, which French dish is? These potatoes are all about moderation, even if you desperately want to lick the pie dish clean. — Mon Petit Four

Pumpkin Cake

The best part about Thanksgiving is undoubtedly the dessert table. It doesn’t count as a real celebration without one. Breaking from family tradition I came up with this delicious pumpkin cake recipe to share with you. It’s studded with chopped walnuts and golden raisins, and then topped with a not-too-sweet cream cheese frosting scented with orange zest. — The Hungry Hutch

11 Recipes to Help You Clean Out Your Fridge

Until very recently, I lived in a small apartment with a European-made, European-sized fridge. I tried to like it. I wanted to be the type of person who embraced the tiny fridge lifestyle, but my job (and maximalist personality) made that a little challenging. I have since moved into a house with a normal-sized American fridge, and it rules.

How to Spot a Foolproof Recipe

By any definition, Hidden Valley Ranch dip is the ultimate foolproof recipe. If you gave a million…

Not only does it fit more food, but the extra space means I can see the food that’s in there. I think I’ve actually wasted less food since upgrading to a larger fridge, because—once again—I can see it. This means I’ve been using my leftovers more effectively, and taking advantage of the many leftover-focused recipes and hacks we have featured on this very site.
