A Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up

Thanksgiving is a mere 2 weeks away! Are you ready?

Evidently Martha Stewart began planning her Thanksgiving months ago – as only she would – which got us thinking: We need a recipe “go to” list for the holidays! A resource that makes ourholiday menu planning easier. A one stop, Thanksgiving recipe shop, if you will!

Speaking of Martha – I had the opportunity to meet her at a summit a few weeks ago and her number one recommendation when hosting a holiday party is this: Have a good, strong cocktail available for your guests when they arrive. Already prepared, already poured and ready to be devoured. So let’s start there, shall we?
