Thanksgiving Feast 2011

Last year was my first year doing Thanksgiving dinner all by myself. I have to say that all the research, testing and tasting paid off BIG TIME! Both my husband and I declared it the best Thanksgiving dinner we've ever had - EVER.

The recipes last year all turned out so well that I am planning on making the same dishes this year - with a few possible additions (?) Here's the run down - click on each link to get the full recipe, review and pictures!!

Ina Garten's Sausage and Herb Stuffing
Decadent Mashed Potatoes
Isabelle's Thanksgiving Rolls
If nothing else - you have to read the section on Alton Brown's turkey. Considering I've never roasted a turkey - or anything remotely like it in my life and that it turned out beautiful, juicy, mouthwatering and down right amazing - it's a must do. Going along with the turkey tips - equally important are Bobby Flay's tips on how to carve it.
I'll post any recipes I am going to add to this years feast - but for now - ORDER YOUR TURKEY!! And get excited for the greatest meal of your life!

I've done a terrible job blogging lately - but I have been cooking. This week things finally cooled off and there's a definite chill in the air. We are in the 50's baby! I love fall weather. We've had soup almost every night. I love how comforting soup is - especially when your nose and cheeks are chilled or when you have a nasty cold (as is the case in this house!)
Here are the soups I've made in the last 2 weeks - all tried and true and well loved!
I'm excited to try some new soup recipes as well - I'll post them soon!
