If this is your first year making Thanksgiving dinner recipes you might need some supplies. I can’t handle the stress of Thanksgiving without some tried and true staples. I need my stand mixer, plenty of baking sheets, as many spoons, scrapers, and spatulas as I can get my hands on, and of course I need an excellent roasting pan. You can’t go wrong with a few slow cookers thrown in the mix to make things easier!
We have advanced through so many things, and it’s time our Thanksgiving dinner recipes do the same. Try something new this year and make new traditions.
Thanksgiving dinner recipes are usually passed down from generation to generation. However, we no longer live in the ‘50’s which means we can find our own recipes pretty easily. Using new recipes does not mean you have to totally break from tradition. You can add in some new twists for a fun variation on all your tried and true classics. Instead of worrying about messing up grandma’s favorite stuffing recipe, try a new one, make it your own! Why do we keep ourselves up at night over this dinner? Now that we have the internet we can access millions of new recipes with just a few clicks. Let’s whip up something new this year.
