This Thanksgiving, instead of showing up to Aunt Ethel’s house empty handed, show your family that You Can Cook. We’re bringing you the best options for each Thanksgiving course – straight from the Parties That Cook recipe library! Here are the Top 10 Holiday Appetizers, Sides and Desserts from our private cooking parties and corporate team building events! The best part about this list is that each crave-worthy recipe can be completed in an hour or less – leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the day and maybe even catch the turkey day (Niner) game.
Appetizers: Minimize the likelihood of a revolt against the oven by allowing guests to nibble on something before the big meal. Be the one to bring snacks before the bird is ready, and you’ll be a Thanksgiving hero! With appetizers this good, there’s no such thing as spoiling your appetite.
