    No matter where we are or what we are feasting on just being with family and friends is what Thanksgiving is all about. But I have to admit I love the traditional dishes on the table and in my stomach!!

    My favorite all time food for Thanksgiving is my Mom’s bread/giblet stuffing! Se makes it from memory and I still haven’t got it right! Also we are a football family! My husband and I coached-he football and I coached cheerleaders so Thanksgiving Day always started with our high schools annual Turkey day game! Go Sachems🏈!

    I love your beautiful Thanksgiving tables. Your dishes are beautiful and I’d be happy to win one. My favorite tradition is getting the stuffing cooking just as the parade is beginning. Then it officially smells like Thanksgiving! Please enter me in your giveaway. I am a subscriber to your lovely blog.

  6. November 1, 2019 at 6:36 am

    Love the recipes and the table setting we are a retired military family so many years were spent away from our extended family. We developed the tradition of a few special recipes we always serve, using my wedding china and inviting someone who has nowhere to go

    I have been a subscriber for awhile now and love all of your features!

    Hi Mary. I love following your post and seeing all the fabulous decor you create. Reading through these recipes has me so drooling with anticipation of trying a couple out this year. I always love gathering with friends and family and sharing good food and fun times. One of my favorite dishes is sweet potato compote with toasted marshmallows on top. This is one of my mother’s specialties and every year we all get a kick out of betting on weather or not she pulls it out from under the broiler before they burn. Thank you for sharing these recipes! I’ve already pinned the potato one.

    Good morning Mary, as fast as our America is trying to change, its traditional dishes at our house. To me nothing is more important than keeping the heritages that we’ve known our whole life and passing those on to the next generation or two. Dressing and turkey gravy is at the top of my list.

      My favorite Thanksgiving dish is my mom’s cranberry fluff. Like Watergate salad that was served for other holidays the cranberry fluff is a staple at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It has pieces of fresh cranberry, nuts, pineapple,and cool whip. Whenever I taste this it brings back memories of past holidays with family and friends.

    Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It speaks of family, home, autumn colors and of course, gratitude. I love having my family around the table as we each take time to share what we are thankful for that year. This year for me – a new great-niece! Thank you for the opportunity to win a “Tom” plate.

    What wonderful and tasty recipes you have for Thanksgiving, Mary!
    My favorite recipe (and one that I can’t find in my recipes) is an egg stuffing I used to make when I was single many yrs ago. And, of course, desserts — all of them! Maybe I’ll be lucky enough to serve one on a “Tom” plate!

    Hello Mary, I recently retired after 52 years in the corporate world and began to follow your blog. Your work is incredible! I love your story lines, photography and creativity. In fact, I love the whole package and that is what I love about Thanksgiving. The entire experience of prepping and cooking the meal, the smells that bring forth and generate new memories, spending time with family and friends represents Thanksgiving. Even with my busy career I always took the time to embrace the holidays and am excited to continue the tradition. Keep up the good work and I anxiously look forward to upcoming posts. Happy Thanksgiving!

  16. November 1, 2019 at 7:34 am

    Hi Mary,
    I stumbled upon your blog not to long ago. I absolutely love it. I so look forward to getting it in my email. I was a floral designer and ran a shoppe in my past life. Your post have brought out that creative desire in me. I also love to set a beautiful table. I’m always thrifting and picking up pretty plates and tea pots, my favorite. Your styling is stunning, like no one else!
    My favorite Thanksgiving food is hands down Pumpkin pie. It brings me back to my childhood. My mom made the best. I still haven’t been able to make one quite as good as her. I always got to test her pies to make sure they were perfect. Your recipes look amazing and I just might have to try a new pumpkin one.
    I have and always pinned your post.
    Thank you for such lovely blog post, I’m truly a fan 😊

    Good morning, Mary! Everyone of your recipes I have made have been just wonderful. Your presentations make me want to achieve the same! We are pretty traditional with turkey, dressing, green bean casserole plus more! We usually try one new recipe. Last year my husband and I went to ND to spend Thanksgiving w/ our daughter and her family up there; it was the last holiday we had w/ him. This year I will be hosting w/ my oldest granddaughter and her family in attendance. I have also invited a long time friend and her hubby who is ill.
    You are always such an inspiration; I am a subscriber and hope to be for a very long time. Thank you so much!

    We love preparing and serving all the old traditional recipes, but my favorite is our daughter’s Baked Pecan Sweet Potatoes.

    My favorite is the “leftovers”. My mother can no longer make the thanksgiving dinner so my sister and I go and make it for the family. After sneaking a little bite here and there I can’t really eat much at the meal so I really look forward to the leftovers the next day. It’s like having two thanksgiving meals! Thank you for the giveaway.

    I pinned the elegant B/W with green acorns Spode Plate. This Plate! Wow. I am flying to Florida on the 12th for a stay with my beloved daughter and her family. Thanksgiving is a big deal and a wonderful time for family and friends. I’m hoping to recreate a favorite Thanksgiving time when tables were set up outside (in California) and big crowds of Megan’s dad’s kin were in rowdy attendance. Megan was barely 2 months old. Inside – Outside, it’s all about the reason to be Thankful, LOVE! Ta, E

    Thanksgiving just would not be right if we did not have salmon salad.It’s a recipe that my husband’s mother made.She would not share the recipe but I watched her make it a 100 times.Got it down pretty good.It’s made using canned milk and soda crackers.Now my husband is the only one who eats it but after almost 59 years together I am happy to make it for him !

  46. November 1, 2019 at 10:26 am

    Yum, a feast for the eyes. I will make the muffins very soon. My fav. part of the holiday feast is the turkey & having family who tolerates the games we play after dinner. Traditions are what it is all about. Thank you for the inspiration. Love the recap of recipes and the turkey plates.

  47. Yvonne Shafer
    November 1, 2019 at 10:30 am

    Hi Mary! It isn’t Thanksgiving without the canned cranberry sauce! We need to see that familiar shape on a holiday table throughout the season! I’ve also pinned several of your photos to my Thanksgiving board. Beautiful as always!

  48. November 1, 2019 at 10:31 am

    I pinned 3 of the pumpkin recipes. That Fr. Toast recipe is a dream and so over-the-top, would be a great weekend treat.

    My favorite savory Thanksgiving recipe is Cornbread Stuffing and my favorite sweet Thanksgiving recipe is pumpkin pie. The Royal Wessex by Churchill Turkey Dinner plate is one to swoon over! I love the fall colors, wheat and floral border and the beautiful Tom strutting his stuff! It would be fun to start a collection for the Thanksgiving table. Thank you for the recipes and Thanksgiving inspiration Mary. Gobble Gobble!

    I love visiting your blog and appreciate all the inspiration! We have special cousins coming for Thanksgiving this year that we haven’t seen in almost 40 years. It would be so lovely to have special Turkey dishes for their visit!!
    When I was first married, I made a sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving and it has remained our favorite since that time. It will be a special holiday with cousins and a new Grandson just born 3 days ago! We are blessed. I’m a subscriber and have pinned the Overnight Pumpkin French Toast with Streusel Topping to serve my guests as a special treat, although I think I have most of your recipes already saved!

    What a treat to wake up the day after Halloween and see your beautiful Thanksgiving post. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, I love the traditions of food and family, combing the best of the tried and true with new experiences (both foods and decorations). I will be making your pumpkin spice nuts and your roasted fall veggies! In recent years one of our family’s favorites is a roasted Brussel Sprouts dish with blue cheese crumbles, bacon and dried cranberries! Would love to win a turkey plate! Thank you Mary!! And may your Thanksgiving be beautifully yummy!

    Love the Tim turkey plates and saved two of them. Especially love the farm with the windmill. Favorite Thanksgiving food is dressing- I love to use leftover biscuits bread cornbread and begin saving odds and ends to freeze to use for the dressing. I use a bag of cornbread stuffing mix to supplement as well. We also have fruit salad with whipped cream served in a beautiful Lenox fluted bowl. Love to cook and have family here to watch the parade. Thank you Mary for your beautiful ideas

    I love Thanksgiving and decorating my home for fall. My favorite tradition is that we share the holiday for the last 25 years with family friends switching from home to home every year. Our kids have grown up together and now come from different locations to spend the day/weekend. Hard to pick favorite dish, but if I must, mashed potatoes and gravy. I have been thinking of collecting different plates and this post convinced me. Going out to shop today for some. I pinned one of the table setting pictures and love the idea of using plaid tablecloths.

    Your Pecan Pumpkin Streusel Pie is delicious! (And I don’t even like pumpkin pie.) I made it a couple of Thanksgivings ago to take to Nashville, and everyone loved it. It was beautiful, too! Also love the Pecan Pie Muffins and the Piecrust Crackers.

  62. November 1, 2019 at 11:38 am

    Mary, Thank you for this beautiful post and tasty round of Thanksgiving recipes. You’re my “go-to” source for my holiday-themed inspiration of tables and delights! I made your Nutter Butter Turkey Cupcakes last year for the littles to enjoy last Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit! I’m a faithful follower and would love to win a “Tom”. Jerri

    My favorite Thanksgiving tradition was getting up at 3am and going to downtown Detroit. For several years, I was a volunteer for our Thanksgiving Day Parade Company. My job was to dress the clowns and put on their makeup. I also was a float handler and supervised various groups and their particular company themed float. My life was so full all those Thanksgiving mornings. When the Parade started down Woodward Avenue, the magic began. Everyone was filled with the wonder of fantasy and the joyous celebration of our Thanksgiving tradition in Detroit.

  65. November 1, 2019 at 11:58 am

    Thank you for posting these recipes. That potato gratin looks amazing. Pie crust and potatoes? Hold me down! I pinned that and will definitely be making it soon! My favorite Thanksgiving recipe/tradition is one that is actually a recent addition to our family. My brother started making these incredible day-after Thanksgiving paninis. He takes all the leftovers (turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy and even some cranberry sauce), adds some cheese, puts it between bread and toasts it in the panini press. OMG they are so good. I can hardly wait for Thanksgiving and the day after!

  66. November 1, 2019 at 12:02 pm

    I love Thanksgiving and every one of these recipes is a winner! I love trying to recreate memories for my family by trying to make dressing just like their moms/grandmoms made it. I’m not sure I ever truly succeeded, but it is fun trying!!!

  67. Martha Franks
    November 1, 2019 at 12:41 pm

    Mary, you delight me! My favorite tradition/food for Thanksgiving is dressing. Mother didn’t have a recipe but it was better than any other. I stood by her side, recorded each ingredient and stage, but I have never made it as good as hers. Now, besides that dressing, we have vegan dressing since we have two vegans and one vegetarian in the family. My daughter developed this recipe and it’s surprisingly good!

  68. Martha Franks

    Everything in this Thanksgiving column is FANTASTIC! The dishes,the decorations and food is fabulous. I appreciate your hard work. The one food we have to have is pecan pie and the tradition is singing thanksgiving songs and making Indian headdresses to wear. Can’t wait to try these recipes.

    Mary you always have wonderful posts. I have made several of you recipes over the years. So far I have made 3 pumpkin with cream cheese swirl loaves in the same pan for myself and gifts. This year I’m making the Caramel-Pecan-Pumpkin bread pudding. It’s like you are joining my Thanksgiving table. Thanksgiving is “My” holiday and I’m always ready to cook for 6 to 16!. I have always admired those dishes, would love to have some to make my table complete!

    Thanksgiving is definitely my most favorite holiday of the year! And all your wonderful recipes will help me fill in my dinner menu! By far my most favorite Thanksgiving food has got to be the stuffing! I love cooking and baking this time of the year, especially Thanksgiving dinner! Thank you for the wonderful giveaway opportunity! It’s always special to fill in our Thanksgiving dinnerware with wonderful new additions!

    My favorite is my mom’s cornbread dressing of course! The dish I make each year is sweet potato casserole with pecan topping. And even though our family is small, I love that we all make an effort to be together.

    What a great way to kick off November Mary! All of your recipes would be a hit on any Thanksgiving table, and they are all beautiful too! The Roasted Harvest Vegetable Salad certainly caught my eye! HHjr just said to me the other day that we needed to come up with some creative recipes for Thanksgiving, so who knows what he’ll suggest! What a generous and thoughtful giveaway, the plates are beautiful! We are enjoying actual Fall weather today, 53 degrees and sunny!

    Mary, Thanks for all your recipes and beautiful table settings. I love the Thanksgiving celebration and the sharing of food, and of recipes too. My family especially likes the cornbread dressing we have every Thanksgiving. We make it shaped into balls and then baked, rather than stuffing the turkey with it. Love the idea of mixing the turkey pattern plates!

  84. November 1, 2019 at 5:19 pm

    I like those pie boxes for just a slice Mary! And every time I see those gratin potatoes I really wish I had some in front of me… Happy November:@)

    My favorite food at Thanksgiving would have to be a tie between the dressing and the pies! I never met a pie I didn’t like, but apple and pumpkin are right up there at the top of the delicious list for me! I would love to win a turkey plate.

After almost forty years, our day is moving to my daughter’s home. It is also the home of my newest grandchild, Mila Belle. Thank you so much for all the inspiration you provide though out the year.

    Stuffing in my favorite Thanksgivings food. Every Thanksgiving we spend it at our cabin in northern Michigan. Always so cozy.
    Our cabin is in Fairview Mi, the Wild Turkey Capitol of Michigan. So I have a collection of turkey serving pieces. Your turkey plate would be a wonderful addition to my collection.

    Hi Mary,

    I have been scouting various “Tom” patterns and hadn’t found one I was ready to commit to…until I saw the Royal Wessex pattern you posted! I’m so glad you chose to post that picture as it’s exactly what I’m looking for. Now I have to decide if I want to mix and match, or collect only the Royal Wessex. Hmmm…

    Thanks for including so many vegetarian options in this posting. I’m always looking for new recipes. The vegetables with the vinaigrette look quick and delicious so I hope to try them out next week. You always keep me from getting stuck in the humdrum serve-the-same-old-thing weekly menu.

    I hope you and your family are safe; the weather on your coast looks a bit wild!


  108. Betsy
    November 1, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    Thank you for these wonderful Thanksgiving recipes and ideas. I pinned your link to my Pinterest ‘Thanksgiving Ideas’ board. Of course delicious food and our family gathering are my favorite things about the holiday. We do however have a family tradition that was started when my son was a little boy. Every year we cut out paper autumn leaves and everyone writes what they are the most thankful for that year. Each year the leaves old and new are hung on a bare branch tree. My son is 34 years old now so the Thanksgiving Tree is full of beautiful leaves. We love reading and remembering all that we have had to be thankful for. I would love to win the giveaway, fingers crossed.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,

    One of my favorite recipes for Thanksgiving was from 1993, it will always be a treasured and precious memory with my younger sister. I had just purchased my home, “Persimmon Tree Hill Cottage,” in the beautiful Smoky Mountains on Cherokee Lake. I was so excited to have my parents and sister Carla visiting for the holiday celebrations! I had the house decorated for Christmas with the Christmas trees decorated and white twinkle lights filling the tree and fireplace mantle. My sister & I had found ”THE” baked turkey recipe to try that year from a Southern Living magazine. It was the most amazing turkey that we had ever tasted!!! I saved the recipe for years but somehow I misplaced and have recreated it on occasions from memory. The ingredients were real butter slathered under the skin of the turkey, then filled the roasting pan and the inside of the turkey with dozens of sliced apples, oranges, onions, sprigs of rosemary. We then created a recipe of apple cider, orange juice, Worcestershire sauce, cinnamon, a little brown sugar, and maybe a few other ingredients that I cannot recall. My sister and I slept in the living room on the sectional sofa, snuggled up in blankets, with a fire burning in the fireplace, Christmas carols playing softly in the background, with a timer, taking turns one of us getting up each hour to baste the turkey with the delicious sauce that we had concocted, every hour, on the hour the entire night. The fragrance through out the house was amazing to say the least! She and I didn’t get much sleep that night, but we laughed, talked, shared stories, shared dreams for the future, slept and created a lifetime of sweet memories of one of my favorite Thanksgivings!!! That Thanksgiving memory went down in our family history as one of the best turkey recipes that we have ever eaten!!! That was over 26 years ago, and life, families, careers have kept us apart for many holidays but the Thanksgiving of 1993 will always bring a smile to my heart and tummy!!!

    My favorite thing about Thanksgiving (besides friends and family) is my mom’s stuffing. No one makes it like her! I pinned the caramel-pecan-pumpkin bread pudding. My four favorite ingredients. This is going to be amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

  114. November 2, 2019 at 10:01 am

Time wth family is so important and a thankful heart completes the day. Thanks for a chance to enter Mary and I’ll be pinning that special plate! I’ve enjoyed making those darling Turkey cupcakes, the french toast, the cranberry-apple-pumpkin bundt cake, and the cut out pastry leaves, all So good!

Your table settings are exceptional, and I have pinned many and also your recipes. Added the mini pumpkin pies and potato gratin. I make the pumpkin granola year around. I love that it doesn’t have oil in it and everyone who tries it asks for the recipe!

    My favorite part of Thanksgiving is having everyone write down what they’re thankful for on slips of paper and collecting them to read later in the day. No need to sign names. I recently came across some the family had written about ten years ago, when the kids were younger. So very fun to be reminded of earlier days and of how creative they were in their thanks-giving!

    My favorite dish at Thanksgiving is cornbread dressing made from the memory of watching Mother put it together.

    Mary, you definitely outdid yourself with this post. Beautiful table settings and yummy recipes. Thank you for putting together such a fabulous post. My favorite Thanksgivings food would have to be pecan pie. Hurricane Dorian stripped most of the pecans off the trees but this week we have been able to pick up a small bucket full. It’s been a race with the squirrels to get there first. I normally make two pecan pies, one traditional and one with Jack Daniels. We have been joining friends for Thanksgivings in a shared meal. Last year I prepared the Cranberry Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake from your blog and it was a big hit.

    I pinned a photo of the Harvest Vegetable Salad with Apple Cider Vinegrette and printed the recipe and plan to take that along with pecan pie and pumpkin pie for Thanksgivings Dinner

    Love following you by email, your blog has really helped to stimulate my creative side.

    Thank you for giving me a chance to win this beautiful plate.

Nothing fancy, just delicious! I loved all the family gatherings at their house every Sunday and Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners were over the top in that little coal mining camp. Please keep posting all your beautiful tables apes and recipes on your blog! I’m a dish a holic! Lol Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family and beautiful furbabies! may God richly bless you!

    My Aunt Rose made Thanksgiving every year for the family before she passed. Her meal was stellar and we looked forward to it every year. No one could match her “made-from-scratch” stuffing and coleslaw. We were not rich but always felt blessed to be seated at the family table to share her delicious meal.

    Hands down Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday- the colors of fall and the wonderful scents of pumpkin and turkey in the oven fill the house with such a cozy warmth that makes for a perfect gathering of friends and family at the table. New recipes may be added and the table settings may be refreshed each year but one thing never changes-my grandmothers creamed onions are always the star side dish at the holiday buffet. Can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

    My favorites are the homemade mashed potatoes and turkey gravy. Thanks for your inspiring blog and the opportunity to win a turkey plate!

    Hi Mary ~ Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Our favorite tradition for Thanksgiving by far is my husband and I snuggled up on the couch watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade while enjoying a nice hot coffee in our autumn mugs. This year will mark 38 times as we’ve been married 38 years this past September. I am also a longtime subscriber to your wonderful blog. Hugs, Dorinda

    Starting our day with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a tradition of Thanksgiving that we’ve had since I was a little girl. This year I’m taking my 13 year old daughter to NYC to see it live and in person. We’ll be doing our Thanksgiving a couple of days later but it’s a bucket list trip for me to see it and I cannot wait!

    Hi Mary, I am one of six children (just my mom is still living) and I have the smallest house of my family so my siblings usually take turns hosting Thanksgiving dinner. My contribution and my favorite Thanksgiving food are the pumpkin pie, pecan pie and Dutch apple pie that I prepare for our get-together with the hope that everyone is too full from dinner and I will be able to have leftover pie for Friday morning breakfast.
    I pinned your second plate, the one with the turkey surrounded by the fruit/flowers bursting with brilliant colors.

    I love leftover turkey to make turkey sandwiches. However, I must say the desserts are my favorite part. :) Thank you for sharing :)

    I love absolutely everything about Thanksgiving except the horrible marshmallow topping on sweet potatoes! One of our traditions is making pine cone turkeys with the children. This year we will have a “rafter” of turkeys with many more grandchildren and great nieces and nephews old enough to participate. Thanks for the round up of recipes. I am going to make the mini pumpkins pieces for our church bake sale. I love your newest Turkey plates with the black background. Pinned them in case I feel I can sneak more dishes into the house past my ever vigilant downsizing spouse! You are still my favorite blogger!
