If this is your first year making Thanksgiving dinner recipes, you might need some supplies. It’s difficult to handle the stress of Thanksgiving without some tried and true staples.
I need my stand mixer, plenty of baking sheets, and as many spoons, scrapers, and spatulas as I can get my hands on. I almost forgot, I also need an excellent roasting pan. You can’t go wrong with a few slow cookers thrown in the mix to make things easier!
But making your Thanksgiving dinner a feast with these Thanksgiving dinner recipes is perfect for a traditional or nontraditional meal. Thanksgiving dinner recipes are usually passed down from generation to generation.
However, we no longer live in the ’50s, which means we can find our own recipes pretty easily. Using new recipes does not mean you have to break from tradition totally. 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 and 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.

Cranberry sauce isn’t my favorite, but if it were, I would be open to trying new recipes. Who knows, maybe throwing apples and oranges into the mix may turn me into a fan. I won’t know until I try.

Having Thanksgiving Fun
Thanksgiving is a holiday filled with delicious food. However, that means we will spend a lot of our time in the kitchen. That is why it is best to set the stage so you can have some fun. You can bring a speaker into the kitchen for some music and open a bottle of wine.
You can also invite others into the kitchen to lend a helping hand. They don’t even have to cook; they just keep you entertained with lively conversation. The kitchen is where the holiday really happens.
