Thanksgiving is just a week away. If you are like me, you are starting to plan what is going to be on the table.
Maybe you have things you just have to have for thanksgiving dinner.
Maybe you are looking to add a new side dish to your dinner.

Let's help each other out. Post your favorite recipe(s) for a thanksgiving dish.

Looking for a new way to cook a turkey? We made this turkey last week as a trail run. It turned out great.

i wish i knew the "recipe". i've always hated the orange canned yams, but my mil makes some sort of sweet potato that's amazingly yummy (and probably terrible for you). it's not made from the orange sweet potatoes though, they're white (but still apparently called a sweet potato? I'm not much of a cook so i forget) last year i helped her a little bit, but i don't remember how she made them, so i'm paying attention this year. 

we always go to her house and my mom sometimes will cook something too. I just help out and do as i'm asked lol.

Lol. Sounds like a white yam! I actually have a big one in my cabnet that i dont know what to do with along with 2 regular yams! 


If its a recipe you like, take a notepad with you and as she is making it write down what she puts in it and how long to cook it. :)

yeah, i don't think she actually uses a recipe. I kinda remember peeling it and boiling it, just until it's fork tender. Then she had me put it in a skillet with some brown sugar and....a couple other things maybe? that's the part i can't remember lol but i do remember her saying "i just eyeball it". i LOVE them but had never had them that way (or heard of a white sweet potato) until i met my husband and ate there for the holidays.

Interesting! My mom will be here for thanksgiving so in hoping she likes yams and can make them into something. I don't like them! My son loves them though.

It's actually really good. Very similar to a green bean casserole.
