How to Cook the Ultimate Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving!!!

Not just the eating part, I genuinely love cooking on Thanksgiving as well. Before you start to think I’m crazy, let me explain my logic behind my deep-rooted love for this holiday. 


Thanksgiving is more than just food, for most of us; Thanksgiving is full of memories.

Certain recipes we make are pasted down from previous generations. Our preferences for certain holiday dishes are formed from the way they are served growing up – for example the great “marshmellows or no marshmellows on the sweet potato casserole” debate. (Btw, I’m team marshmellows)


Thanksgiving memories for me are full of family, moments of being grateful, and delicous foods. It’s something I look forward to every year!

But I know this year will be many families first time cooking Thanksgiving at home. As we all try to navigate “socially distanced holidays”, most of us feel pretty overwhelmed.

I want to make this year a little easier on you. If you find yourself having to cook Thanksgiving this year, as a gift from me to you, here is my full list of holiday recipes, shopping list, and my “week of Thanksgiving” prep schedule!

Recipes, Grocery List, and Cooking Schedule all included!
