12 Thanksgiving Recipes So Good I Want To Make Them Year Round

There’s more to Thanksgiving dinner than that moment when everyone is finally convened around platters and platefuls of savory eats. Thanksgiving dinner starts now with the plotting and planning. What will be the main course? What side dishes go best? Do you go with the classics like mashed potatoes and green bean casserole or put a modern twist on the meal by serving Coq au Vin or Pumpkin Risotto? Do you go full indulgence with an amount of butter that would make Julia Child proud or follow your health and wellness forefathers towards more clean options like an Autumn Glow salad or fresh roasted veggies? The options are endless and we aren’t mad about it.  Here are the 12 recipes we hope to be making this Thanksgiving and beyond: (and do let us know what’s on your menu this year!)
