2013 Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up

put on your cooking shoes

Come one, come all to the Crepes of Wrath 2013 Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up. I’m starting you off with my favorite Buttermilk Biscuit recipe, but there are lots, lots more where those came from. There can be no doubt that Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday. I adore it. I love the food, the gathering, the friends and family, the old recipes and the new ones, and if you can believe it, I even love all of the stress that comes with cooking a huge meal for a big group of people. This year we are hosting a grand total of 16 people, and I couldn’t be more excited. Sure, my apartment is around 650-square feet. And sure, some people might have to hover their plates on a knee or bring their own vegan food because I am bad at vegan food (there will be two vegans), but it will certainly be a feast and later, a serious party to boot. I just have to get through these next two days before the best day of the year.

These are all recipes that I’ve made in the past year or so, but I think that they are definitely Thanksgiving-approved. On top of Thanksgiving, we have Hannukah to celebrate on the same day, so I highly recommend throwing some classic Jewish comfort food in with your regular repertoire. I’ve got a challah recipe that is super straight forward and easy (for challah, anyway), some butternut squash and leek eggs benedict, homemade matzoh, and best of all, rugelach. The rugelach are honestly to die for. We’ve got your necessary dishes, too – stuffing, Brussels sprouts, pie, plenty of pumpkin-themed madness, and a few different vegan options so that nobody feels left out (but you probably still need some tofu or tempeh in there somewhere). Bonus recipe: crock pot brioche. This sounds crazy, but on Thanksgiving, when your oven is completely full, why not bake some bread in your slow cooker? You can thank my later. Either way, I hope that everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving. May your top pants button be stretched to its maximum capacity.
