      Our favorite traditions come alive at the table during during the holidays. The table belonged to my grandmother who died from TB during the flu epidemic in 1918. That big table, where the family ate, was passed down to my mother and now I have it. On the same farm, my brother raises our turkey along with almost every other food that we share with our families and friends on Thanksgiving Day. I even make the pumpkin pies using Mom’s recipe.
      Yours is my favorite blog!

    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and this year I am having it at our home. In anticipation I have looked at all your past postings for inspiration. I love your table settings, flowers (centerpieces) and recipes. My favorite dish is traditional bread dressing, sometimes I get creative; but have to start with the basics. I use all my Evesham serving pieces because of their harvest theme, I have had them for years. They lend themselves to the colors of fall. Thank you, your beautiful centerpieces with fruits and vegetables are the inspiration for my Thanksgiving table this year.

    Everything looks delicious! Last year I made your mini pumpkin pies (pinned as well). They were a huge success. The perfect size so everyone could sample other goodies. We have many family traditions, number one is making my mom’s nut bread to have for breakfast Thanksgiving morning while watching the Macy’s Parade and from my husband’s side we have to have the pomegranate mix (pomegranate, raisins and walnuts). This year I think I’m going to make your pecan leaves (also pinning). Thank you for such wonderful recipes to make the Holiday even better.

    My family thinks I make the best stuffing and Giblet gravy and that’s all they want to eat! Unfortunately, its the turkey “innerds” that makes the gravy so the Turkey is a must! CaN’T wait to try new recipes!

    Thanks Mary, for posting these recipes today. With Halloween behind us, it’s wonderful to know the next two months will be spent celebrating and exuding gratitude with family and friends. Your butternut apple and pumpkin shooters look divine, as does the sangria. Gives me an excuse to start experimenting in the kitchen. Thanks for giving us new ways to celebrate each week.

Thanksgiving is all about the sides for me, stuffing, green bean casserole, creamed onions, corn souffle…😋 What a great giveaway Mary, but I won’t enter this time as I was such a lucky winner last month!

    My favorite part of Thanksgiving is in the morning gathering around our kitchen table in our jammies, watching the Macy’s parade, reading all the ads from the newspaper and eating French Toast!

  34. Alice
    November 1, 2018 at 8:39 am

    My favorite memory as a child was singing “Over the river and through the woods” as my parents drove to our grandmothers house for Thanksgiving. Awaiting me there were many cousins and my name sake that all of her children and grands adored. As an adult cooking my first turkey and dressing for my parents. I didn’t sleep a wink worrying if I would have it ready when they arrived and making sure it was cooked through. Fifty years later I remember the feeling I had when placing that first turkey on the table. So proud to have pulled it off and to have my parents there.

  35. Cheryl
    November 1, 2018 at 8:41 am

    A favorite recipe that is always on our Thanksgiving table is actually a Weight Watchers recipe…it’s spice-roasted butternut squash and onions. Everyone always loves it!

  36. Donna
    November 1, 2018 at 8:43 am

    Favorite is dressing and dare I say, Leftovers. Love those bundt recipes and will try the overnight French toast. Yum.

  37. Debbie
    November 1, 2018 at 8:50 am

    My favorite Thanksgiving dish would have to be the dressing/stuffing even though I never use it to stuff the turkey we have always just called it stuffing. I am very picky about the stuffing no stove top for me even though my grown children love it. Not on Thanksgiving and of course pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Well heck I just can’t seem to pick a favorite I love everything about Thanksgiving. The food, family all together, grand children so happy and loving all the family being together not much of that going on today it seems like with social media and busy lives. And its the season I do a lot of decorating the house. Love your site and being for NC also makes it just a little more at home for me. I have pinned many of your ideas and recipes.

    November 1, 2018 at 8:51 am

    Scrumptious – can’t wait to try them ALL!!!

  39. Terri
    November 1, 2018 at 8:52 am

    Oh to pick, I would have to say cranberry sauce homemade, sweet potatoes gussied up.
    It is all Bountiful on that day!!!

    November 1, 2018 at 8:54 am

    Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, cooking and baking and enjoying the return of family
    I love putting the turkey on and watching the Macy’s day parade with the now grown
    Children. My mother’s fruit salad is the dish I most associate with her, served in the beautiful Lenox Eternal fluted bowl.
    Thank you Mary for sharing your beautiful traditions and photos. I pinned the Sangria!😍

  43. Kathy B.
    November 1, 2018 at 9:01 am

    My favorite food has to be cornbread dressing. I should probably start calling it “stuffing” cause after eating waaaaay tooooo much of it I’m the one feeling like a stuffed turkey. Ha!

    I am a thankful subscriber to your blog and this year I’ve got to try your mini pumpkin pies. They sure are sweet looking! And thank you for the nice giveaway! Earlier this year I bought eight place settings of stainless steel turkey flatware for my table. Can’t wait to use it. Gobble Gobble!

  45. November 1, 2018 at 9:16 am

    As I have stated before…who needs a cookbook when we have you!!….always love your recipes….My answer will probably have a response as “really??” I love turkey, the pumpkin pie, the mashed potatoes drowning with turkey gravy…but if you ask me what is my favorite?…..stuffing!!! …. my mom’s stuffing is the best! Have a great day Mary…see you at Floral Friday tomorrow!

    It is so hard to pick a favorite as I love all Thanksgiving dishes! I would have to say cranberry sauce as my Mom always makes/serves it 3 ways – fresh, cooked and in the can (for my brothers ;-)

  63. Karen
    November 1, 2018 at 9:55 am

    As the only female born in my family’s baby boomer generation, I inherited dishes, cutlery, unique serving and decorative dishes from multiple relatives when they passed.

    To honor their memory at Thanksgiving, I pull out at least 1 item per relative and display it either on our holiday or buffet table. The items aren’t placed “front and center” so I wait until a relative notices the item and exclaims “Wow, those were my Mother’s favorite candle holders” or “Is that my Grandmother’s serving dish?” Once the relative discovers the piece, I am regaled with stories about their mother, grandmother or cousin and I get to hear their special memories. These are the very best moments of Thanksgiving.

    I love Thanksgiving as it is the calm before the Christmas Storm….and has so much meaning…as we stop and reflect on all the blessings we have been given and the things in this life that we are truly Thankful for. My favorite recipe is a sweet potato casserole like non-other that can be used for a pie or for a side dish. It is whipped and creamy. My favorite tradition is….I have my grandchildren over the Week of Thanksgiving….and they tell me why they are thankful for each family member…some are sweet and some are hilarious. I then type up the notes and cute them apart….I then fold them and place them in the croissant rolls before rolling them up (kind of like a fortune cookie)…Before we eat each person takes a roll and pulls it apart and we read aloud each note that is written in the rolls. The kids as well as the adults love it!!! We laugh…we cry….The kids even ask aren’t we going to do this for Christmas…and I say no…this is something special we save for Thanksgiving. Thank you again for your blog! It is my fun and my inspiration packed with ideas galore.

    My husband has to have Copper Penny Carrots every Thanksgiving. We got the recipe from a pot luck dinner at church in 1975 and EVERY single Thanksgiving since then we have enjoyed it and think of friends from that church we live very far away from now. It tastes good and brings up nice memories which is an especially nice theme now that we are so much older.

    I’m going to be away for Thanksgiving, but I am sending this post to my sister, who always hosts her family. I always host my family, too, so I will show this to my husband in case he wants to get creative. Everything looks delicious!! My favorite thing to have on Thanksgiving is the stuffing:)

  83. November 1, 2018 at 11:23 am

    Thanks Mary for being a favorite go-to for decorating and recipe ideas! My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is visiting my 96 year old Aunt on the Farm and sweet potato casserole with pecan streusel. I’m a follower and have gotten so many ideas for my upcoming dinner for my Bunco gals! You make entertaining look easy!! Thanks for your generosity!!

    I look forward to opening your emails and as usual you didn’t disappoint! By the time I finished reading my stomach was growling. I pinned the little pumpkin pies thinking to make them with the pecan crust and topping. As I’ve gotten older I like the little desserts so I can eat more :). My favorite food is the leftovers!
    Thank you!

    Sangria sound delish
    I pinned the first picture of the Turkey player.

    Good afternoon! Many years ago a new friend from Maryland told me her family always served sauerkraut with the Thanksgiving dinner. I tried it, loved it, and made it a part of my holiday meal! I love the ritual! I hope I win either set. A perfect addition to my family feast.

    November 1, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    Oh Wow Mary, such marvelous recipes in
    today’s post. I must say pecan pie has to be my favorite Thanksgiving’s dish. Thanksgiving was generally spent at my grandparents home in South Carolina. My brother, cousins and I would collect pecans from the front yard and miraculously they turned into delicious pies. We always felt we had a hand in the meal. So often our favorite foods are associated with memories of family time spent together.

    November 1, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    How did it become November already? In answer to which food I like best, really can’t separate the turkey from the dressing, which is my favorite part of the actual Thanksgiving main course. And then, pies ! My family loves pie and pies always seem to taste better on Thanksgiving Day. At a minimum, we have multiple pumpkin, apple, cherry and Cherry-raspberry. If guests come who have a particular favorite, a pecan or another flavor also makes an appearance. Thanksgiving dinner is just very special.

  107. RD
    November 1, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    My favorite Thanksgiving recipe might be bundt cake after trying the pumpkin/cranberry/apple! But traditionally, Thanksgiving is homecoming to Mississippi, family reunions, and cornbread dressing with lots of giblet gravy!

    (1) Thanksgiving is a favorite of mine! I love our family gathering that lasts all day and late into the evening. My mama’s dressing is one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving. She took over making the dressing in our family when my grandmother passed away. (2) I am a subscriber and enjoy your posts! (3) I pinned the Royal Stafford Thanksgiving turkey plate! Gorgeous!

I made your recipe for Potato Gratin with Rosemary Crust for Christmas dinner last year, and it’s now a family favorite. Thank you so much for your always lovely posts!

  112. November 1, 2018 at 4:38 pm

    For the past 15 years we have called dibs for Thanksgiving with my mother-in-law, Eunice The rest of the family can join us but we have made it known that she is ‘ours’ for this holiday. In years past, Eunice traveled from Great Falls to Helena to join us at our home, but Eunice is now 95 so the past 3 years we have brought dinner to her instead. She still lives alone in her own home, but doesn’t do much cooking.

  113. November 1, 2018 at 4:40 pm

    My mom always made a cranberry fluff salad for Thanksgiving. It had fresh cranberries, marshmallows, nuts ,pineapple and coolwhip it was my favorite. We always asked for it every holiday while my kids ask for Watergate salad. Your pictures are always amazing of all the food. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

    You make the most beautiful foods and presentations, plus your photography has always been amazing!
    Everyone in my family has always loved my mother’s dressing and stuffing (she made it for both inside and outside the bird). My sister-in-law makes a ready-made kind, and it’s all I can do to nicely pass on it. I make my mother’s recipe, and my sisters make my mother’s recipe. It’s a tradition.
    What great utensils you’ve found, and you are always so generous in including readers in them. Thanks for the opportunity, Mary. Happy November!

  117. November 1, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    Mary, you have me wanting to push my chef out of the way and start baking. That pumpkin bread pudding is definitely on my radar. I pinned that photo!!! I have some individual turkey tureens and plan to copy your idea. I’m always at a loss for how to use these little tureens. Love everything about this post. The recipes are all mouth watering, but the styling is the absolute best! Happy November!!!

  119. November 1, 2018 at 5:36 pm

    Mary, once again you have such a beautiful way of displaying food of all kinds. Whether it is a vegetable or just a snack, I love how elegantly it is arranged and decorated. It makes an all ready delicious dish even more desirable and appealing. I could almost taste that pie just looking at it. Have a wonderful month of November.

    Hello Mary! Love your November post and all the yummy recipes you shared! Thanksgiving is always a special time for family gatherings and remembering the past and creating the new. We always have a traditional Thanksgiving feast with Turkey, Stuffing, Potatoes/Gravy, Greenbean casserole, but for dessert I make a “Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Candied Ginger crumble” that keeps everyone coming back for more♡

    This comment has nothing to do with today’s post. I prepared your Chicken Orzo Soup Recipe for dinner tonight. Both my husband and I have had colds so I went to my Pinterest food board and there it was. I remembered just how delicious it was and started chopping. Fortunately I had a just purchased a rotisserie chiciken yesterday. Since I am allergic to wheat I substituted wild rice for the orzo, it was just what the doctor ordered. I now have plenty for tomorrow evening and the freezer. I already feel better. Thanks again Mary.

    • November 1, 2018 at 8:04 pm

      Thanks for letting me know Virginia, I always keep some in the freezer and wild rice sounds like a delicious substitution. Hope you feel better soon❣️

    We live in a town with a huge military base and we always had 2 soldiers join us for Thanksgiving through a program at the base. It was wonderful to share our time with these young men who were unable to get home for the holidays. We loved meeting them and sharing food and tradition with them.

    What a fantastic parade of awesome recipes of which I have tried many and all are winners! Had so much fun making the turkey cupcakes, they made me laugh out loud as they seemed to come to life while decorating them! The Pecan pie muffins are oh, so good as is the Cranberry Apple Pumpkin Bundt cake. The Pumpkin French toast with streusel topping is wonderful and I enjoyed cutting out the Cranberry Pecan pie crust leaves. This year I want to try the mini pumpkin pies, I know they will be delish, am pinning. Mary, you are ALWAYS so generous to us and last night for my husband’s birthday gathering, I brought out my beautiful Wallace Autumn knife to cut the cake and served it with the pie/cake server from the set of 5, that I received as a winner from one of your giveaways. I LOVE IT and am always so proud and happy to use these pieces. Always receive compliments on them, 🤗 so I’ll pass on entering, but wanted you to know my gift is greatly loved and cherished. Didn’t know there was a lasagna server also, so will look for that to purchase. It’s hard to pick a favorite food because I like it all, lol, but I have to say the turkey with my sister’s awesome gravy on it and of course MASHED POTATOES with lots of gravy. Yum! Thankful for YOU and the joy you bring to all of us! God bless, Happy November, let the good times roll, calories and all! 😄

  145. November 2, 2018 at 2:32 am

    Your recipes sound AMAZING and I must try them all!! My favorite sides are my mother’s stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy…and pumpkin muffins!

  146. November 2, 2018 at 3:05 am

    My favorite Thanksgiving food, which is also a yearly tradition, is ROASTED TURKEY. Not to mention the mashed potatoes, stuffing and all of the rest of the goodies. But the turkey is a MUST.

    Mary, thanks so much for the Thanksgiving post. I am a subscriber. You are so generous w/ your giveaways. It is hard to choose just one favorite traditional Thanksgiving food as I like them all! My sister recently told me that last year she made the best ever green bean casserole; I must get that recipe from her. I just love being w/ my family that day and hearing what each is thankful for at that point in time. I made your pumpkin chocolate bundt cake in October; it was delicious! Thanks for sharing your creativity! I also just made the maple glazed owlets w/ the amped up spice cake mix; the buttermilk and extra egg does make a difference.

    Thanksgiving always holds a very special place in my heart! When I was pregnant with my first son, I had morning sickness (more like ALL day sickness) and couldn’t eat much. When Thanksgiving rolled around we spent it at my grandmother’s home. I have to tell you it was the best food I’d eaten in a long time! She made my favorites- homemade stuffing, warm buttery biscuits, and she also made cheesy broccoli & cauliflower! That Thanksgiving was a true celebration for me! I was able to eat amazing food and I also got to spend it with the people I love most!

I’ve pinned the large photo that says Thanksgiving Recipes to my “oh yummy” board and I shared it in my blog newsletter which went out today (every first Saturday of the month). I do subscribe so I can always be wowed by your photos. Every Thanksgiving is spent with our kids.

    I always look forward to reading your posts.
    Our favorite family tradition is making a family craft (ie: homemade gift tags, gift bags, decorating cookies or making ornaments) for Christmas, after our Thanksgiving meal is over.
    It is always a fun, festive time full of laughs and it’s our family kick-off to the Christmas season.
    I’m a subscriber and I’ve already pinned your Cranberry-Pecan Pie Crusts Leaves!
    Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🍁🦃

    Can’t wait to try some of your recipes for this Thanksgiving, the root vegetables looks wonderful!
    My favorite Thanksgiving dish is an onion casserole that I have been making for years. It tastes very much like French fried onion rings but no frying is involved.

    Love all the pies on Thanksgiving! I will need to try your pumpkin pecan streusel pie with pecan crust. We make our pumpkin pie with chopped pecans and coconut topped with a bit of whipped cream!

    Love every recipe you have shared. You are an amazing cook and photographer. This post made me think of where I got each recipe I have on our Thanksgiving table. Southern Living magazines’ recipes from many years past are old favorites. I make Tees corn pudding, cranberry relish, oyster dressing and green been casserole from Southern Living. The sweet potato casserole recipe was given to me many years ago by a coworker, it has rum in it, and I make it all through the year. I start to think of Tees corn pudding in August when the sweet corn harvest arrives. We buy a box of fresh sweet corn and freeze it for the very purpose of making Tees recipe. I’ve serve it at many family functions and it disappears quickly and shared the recipe also. After saying all this the turkey really is an after thought and the sides, with all the memories associated with them, are the stars.

    Favorite tradition for Thanksgiving…the secrecy involved in preparing a great aunt’s recipe for Cranberry Sherbert…love that crisp taste…but the recipe is still a secret. I never make it anymore, as I am the only one in my family who likes to eat it!
    I saved the picture of the Spode Celebration turkey plate…

We are very basic (farmers like meat and potatoes!) we do always have pumpkin pie and a second dessert that includes pumpkin ice cream.. either brownies or we make a cold pie with it.. happy happy thanksgiving!!

    Good Morning Mary! I always love reading your posts that include such mouth watering recipes, and especially a peak at your adorable pups. Having Bichons myself, I know how they love to be a part of everything we do. Our Thanksgiving is celebrated with many Italian traditions handed down from my parents. Coming from an Italian family many of our recipes have an Italian twist to them, and it is hard to choose a favorite, however my kids have fallen in love with my encrusted baked brie with homemade balsamic cranberry sauce, as well as my baked butternut squash with cranberries and goat cheese. For me, sharing the day with my family around the table I inherited from my Mom, is priceless. I am a follower, and have previously pinned almost every recipe from this post. Thank you, and have a blessed Thanksgiving.

    My Thanksgiving favorites are the stuffing and “desserts”!!!!! Love your blog, and the potting shed is perfection.

    Your blog is one of my favs and one of the earliest I started following with tablescapes! Yours are always lovely! My family likes the traditional southern turkey and dressing with lots of sage and onion, and sides of sweet potato casserole, greens and lots of gravy.

    Just discovered your wonderful blog😊-Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday for sharing warmth, friendship and good food with family and friends. All the classic dishes are my favorites but never missed is my grandmothers creamed onions covered with a browned cheesy topping.

    Hey Mary,
    You are so very clever! I love how you style your tables and all of your fabulous ideas. Since we were small children (child of the 50’s) at Thanksgiving my Mother always made a congealed salad that our family refers to as “The Green Salad”. It consists of lemon and lime jello, crushed pineapple, mayo and cottage cheese. I know it probably sounds gross but it just would not be Thanksgiving without having it on the table. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I wish you and I lived closer as I’m sure we would be great friends!

    This is hard! So much good food to choose from. Two of my favorites are turkey gravy (savory) and pumpkin pie (sweet). My favorite tradition is going around the table and everyone says what they are thankful for before we eat and watching a Hallmark Christmas movie after dinner. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    The recipes you shared look delicious! I bet the Overnight Pumpkin French Toast with Streusel Topping would be heavenly and the house would smell great while cooking.
    One of my favorite dishes is my mom’s sweet potatoes.
    Thank you!

    My favorite recipe at Thanksgiving is my mother’s rice and sausage stuffing with fresh applesauce. My mother combined her mother’s Irish bread and sausage stuffing with my father’s mother’s Greek rice and raisin stuffing, to blend their two families together. It’s delicious and she helps me make it every year for our 16+ guests on Thanksgiving morning. I absolutely LOVE your ideas and recipes and plan on adding a few to this year’s celebration! Thanks!

    Wow. Hard to pick a favorite but I think I will go with the Pumpkin bread in the Nordic Ware loaf pan. Just gorgeous. I’m inspired to go to Home Goods tomorrow!!
