I love today because it's one of the biggest cooking days of the year. Getting the turkey and stuffing just right can be difficult, but let's face it, plopping cranberry sauce out of a can or pouring a can of pumpkin pie filling into a pre-made crust is not difficult or any fun! I've noticed that some people are super stuck on tradition and need their cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, and they can have it! Just spice it up a little. Here's a few recipes on my Thanksgiving table this year.
Instead of cranberry sauce try this Cranberry Apple and Ginger Chutney (don't let the name scare you, not complicated!):
Instead of pumpkin pie, I made Pumpkin Roulade.
