Tis that time of year when family and cooking replace the warmth of the summer sun.  These frosty mornings tend to keep me in the kitchen planning and experimenting  just a bit.  My recipes have been updated but of course tradition is the name of the game at Thanksgiving.

Here are a few of the family favorites passed from Grandmothers and Memeres:

Turkey with the French dressing,

Homemade bread with a checkerboard twist,

Sweet potatoes with a brown sugar butter sauce,

Fresh cranberry relish as well as the canned kind ( because it’s so good in a late night sandwich). 

For these simple things and so much more I am forever thankful.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them…John Fitzgerald Kennedy
