With Thanksgiving right around the corner, people begin scouring old cookbooks, magazines and websites for the best recipes for their holiday feasts. This is about the time that my mom would always dig out her dusty book of family recipes and begin preparing for all of the classics that made my childhood so delicious. Most families have a few recipes that have been passed down for generations, or at least a recipe that is their favorite for Thanksgiving. But you never want your holiday meal to feel stale, so it’s also important to add a few new dishes to the table.

The holiday starts like any other: by waking up and making breakfast. Thanksgiving is famous for the huge dinner, so cooks often neglect breakfast. But it’s very important to have a hearty first meal: you need your energy to do all of your big Thanksgiving cooking! Plus, breakfast is a nice time to spend with your family before you get caught up in the stress of cooking, entertaining, and cleaning up.

Once you’ve had a filling start to your day, it’s time to tackle the most time-consuming meal prep so that it is ready by the time your guests arrive for dinner. I love slow cooker recipes because although they have to be made well in advance, they usually require very little effort. Most of the time, slow cooker recipes are a simple dump and go! This 12-Hour Slow Cooker Recipes cookbook is perfect for Thanksgiving because once you put the ingredients in your slow cooker, you will not have to worry about the recipe for half of the day! You can work on preparing other dishes while your slow cooker simmers with deliciousness.
No matter how hard I try, something always goes wrong when I host Thanksgiving. I forget to heat up a casserole, the rolls are taking too long to bake, or I was late in cooking the turkey. Whatever the fiasco, a good hostess has to be prepared to keep her hungry guests happy. That’s why I always have an arsenal of savory appetizers to hold everyone over before I serve the meal. With 101 Easy Entertaining Recipes, hosting Thanksgiving is a breeze. This cookbook includes appetizer recipe staples like smoky sausage wraps, and also incredible twists on appetizers like chocolate pizza! You’ve guests will be very impressed by these lip-smacking good appetizers!
