12 Easy Thanksgiving Recipes You Should Try, Based On Your Sign
Cranberry sauce. Stuffing. Mashed potaters with gravy. Green bean casserole. Thanksgiving is about being grateful for all of the beautiful blessings in your life, and stuff; but... food. We'd be lying if we tried to deny that a big part of Thanksgiving is cooking up a storm in the kitchen, trying not to burn the place down, and gorging yourself on cornbread and turkey. If you're planning to channel your inner chef this holiday but don't know where to start, we've got the Thanksgiving recipe you should try based on your zodiac sign.
Best yet, these are recipes just about anyone can manage — unlike the cheesecake I tried to prepare one year that remarkably remained in liquid form despite its time in the oven. You needn't have gone to culinary school to whip up a delicious entree, side dish, or dessert. Anyone can follow a recipe! (You can also buy it frozen and pretend you made it from scratch. We won't tell a soul.)
This holiday season, impress your family and friends with your prowess in the kitchen. Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes from the internet's greatest cooking and baking blogs. Roll up your sleeves and get to work!
