Honey and Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 105
Baked until chewy on the outside and soft on the inside, these are a perfect balance of salty and sweet. The rosemary makes them addictive.

Asparagus with Cranberries and Pine Nuts

Rating: 4.5 stars 82
This is a quick, easy way to saute asparagus. The dish has a light flavor and makes a great accompaniment to Italian meals. I make this year-round, but we especially enjoy it on Thanksgiving.

A few tablespoons of duck and a very hot oven is all you need to turn some sleepy Brussels sprouts into something much more special.

Quick Brussels and Bacon

Rating: 4.5 stars 110
This very quick and flavorful side dish is easy for everyday dinner, but nice enough to serve for Thanksgiving!

Roasted Butternut Squash with Onions, Spinach, and Craisins®

Rating: 4.5 stars 66
A delicious deviation from the typical squash preparation, this recipe has kind of a nutty flavor with or without the nuts. Good as-is, but of course each person can salt and pepper their own serving to taste. The leftovers are good served as a cold salad if you don't like the cooked spinach that results from re-heating. Almonds and walnuts can be used in addition to or instead of the pecans.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Rating: 5 stars 1047
This recipe makes your turkey moist and full of flavor. You can also use this recipe for Cornish game hens, chicken breasts or roasting chicken. Select a turkey sized according to the amount of people you will be serving.
