Thanksgiving Recipes


I'm off to Ohio after work today.  Nick, Jerry and I rented a car and have a 7 hour drive ahead of us.  The Midwest roads are, so far, mercifully clear of snow.  I am trying two new recipes this year from two talented women: Orangette's Cream Braised Brussels Sprouts and The Pioneer Woman's Whiskey Glazed Carrots

For anyone still looking for menu ideas, I dug through nearly four years of Pro Bono Baker archives and have selected a few recipes that I think would be a welcome addition to any Thanksgiving table. Have a great holiday!
