Thanksgiving Recipes and Menus

Thanksgiving is one of the best excuses we have to get into the kitchen and prepare a special holiday meal for family and friends. I have created two menus for the occasion, both featuring turkey accompanied by starters, ample side dishes, breads and delicious desserts. The first is a bountiful Pennsylvania Dutch Thanksgiving Feast, starting with popular 'sweets and sours', just like my mother and grandmothers served. The second menu is a Southern Thanksgiving Feast featuring deep-fried turkey, my one departure from older southern traditions. Additionally, I listed some of my favorite starters, turkey, side dishes and dessert recipes so that you can create a festive Thanksgiving menu to suit your tastes and delight your guests.
