letter from allrecipes

When the staff started brainstorming about Thanksgiving, we quickly agreed that while most of us build our menus around the traditional foods— turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc.— everyone tends to put their own spin on them. “We do the potatoes with olive oil and garlic because Sophie is vegan now” or “Uncle Ralph would freak out if I didn’t put bacon in the green beans” or “I coat the turkey with a killer spice rub.” You customize the meal for the family and friends who are sitting at the table (and personal taste, of course!). So we decided to make that the theme of this issue: Thanksgiving your way. You’ll find unique side dishes, easy and flavorful tweaks on traditional recipes, desserts beyond pumpkin pie, ideas for assembling cheese…


TRENDS* FACTOIDS * FAVES 28 million people visit the week leading up to Thanksgiving. That’s a 366% jump from most other weeks throughout the year. 1,201 pins of Three-Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes—the most-pinned potato side dish on our Thanksgiving Recipes Pinterest board. Potatoes seem to be the side dish of choice on our site, too. Of the 1 million searches for “potato” recipes last November, potato casseroles were in top demand (332,508 searches), followed by mashed potatoes (164,185), potato pies (104,031), and scalloped potatoes (22,751). 314 Instagram likes of Grandma’s Apple Pie à la Mode Moonshine (from community member Unchained), our most popular holiday drink recipe on Instagram. Beware, though: With 5 cups of alcohol, this isn’t a drink to take lightly—or liberally. 736 million pounds of turkey that Americans eat on Thanksgiving. That…

SHAKE a TAIL FEATHER A veggie tray can seem a little humdrum compared to the drama of all the other Thanksgiving dishes. Which is why we love this clever presentation—it gives crudités a little pomp and circumstance. There’s no wrong way to do it, as long as the arrangement looks vaguely like a bird. In fact, make your life easier and just copy this one! Some people use a bowl of dip as the body, others build their bird facing straight on instead of in profile, and, obviously, you can use whatever veggies you want. No matter how your particular work of vegetable art plays out, your guests will snack in true Thanksgiving style. DIY: Dinner by Candlelight On Thanksgiving, people pull out all the stops— the good plates, the sterling silver, the…

Apple-Curry Turkey Pitas “Simple, quick, and flavorful. Great for turkey left overs. This is a good one for substitutions, too. I’ve used white wine in place of lemon, sour cream in place of yogurt, chicken in place of turkey, and Indian naan in place of pita bread. Enjoy!” —MOONNOODLE 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 cup thinly sliced onion ⅓ cup low-sodium chicken broth 2 tablespoons lemon juice 9 ounces cooked turkey, cut into ½-inch pieces (about 1½ cups) 1 tablespoon curry powder, or to taste ¼teaspoon salt 1 medium apple, diced [From our kitchen: Try using a tart apple, such as Granny Smith, Pinata, or Pink Lady, for extra contrast.] 3 pita bread rounds, halved crosswise and grilled or toasted ½ cup plain yogurt [From our kitchen: If you like, jazz up the yogurt by adding a little ground coriander and…
