Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thanksgiving is the favorite holiday of millions of Americans. And with so many diverse regions across the United States, it's no surprise to find that the Thanksgiving menu changes significantly from New England to the Pacific Northwest. This is the quintessential cookbook for our national day of thanks, capturing this diversity with creative recipes for the perfect dinner and providing the key to a stress-free occasion with author Diane Morgan's indispensable do-ahead tips. Including appetizers, soups, salads, main courses, stuffings, casseroles, biscuits, side dishes, desserts, and even leftovers, it contains everything the busy cook needs to celebrate this most festive and food-centered of holidays!

Far more than just another book of Thanksgiving cooking ideas, this is a year-round resource for great food. In a casual look-through, I found FIFTEEN recipes I wanted to try ... and those were just the ones I thought the family would eat with me. Each recipe features a list of ingredients, number of servings, a description of preparation, and suggestions on what can be made ahead. I found the make-aheads particularly useful, because appliance use on holidays is at a premium!

I made two of the items from the book, and both were tremendous hits. The practiced cook can also find many ways to modify recipes to kick up the heat or tone things down for those who prefer a little less spice or who have food allergies. Nutritional information would have been useful, although it's not too hard to figure out these creations are generally not for the weight-conscious.

I'm looking forward to even more of the recipes in here. They definitely aren't Thanksgiving only, and are adaptable to any family occasion or even casual dinner at home.
