It’s Wednesday, y’all; that’s right, the day before Thanksgiving, and if you’re slated to bring “something” to the big meal but don’t know what that could be, we just have one suggestion for you:

Step away from the miniature marshmallows. You can do better than that.

You don’t have to resort to cans or packages at this point, so step up to the stove and bring your “A” game. We’ve got your back, and together, we can do this. And you won’t be fighting in the grocery store aisle for the last of anything.

An easy vegetable side dish that is fresh (read: guilt-free second helpings) and elegant  /  Broccoli Salad with Orange Yogurt Dressing

Pearl onions so good you’ll forget you ever had them in a martini  /  Pearl Onions in Béchamel

They never knew that the autumnal table arrangement was actually edible, and that it tastes so good (double this recipe for a crowd)  /  Autumn Squash Filled with Chanterelles
