Thanksgiving is the final hurrah of the school year, and many kids are anxious to get it all over with. However, making a homemade recipe for Thanksgiving is a great way to both have fun and make some memories with your family. If you know anyone who is planning on having a Thanksgiving cookout this year and wants to send out a special Tahnksgiving recipe, you may want to help them out. Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving recipes that are sure to be a hit at this time of year.
Where to Start?
A good way to start with your meal is with the classic Apple pie. Everyone has their very own favorite kind of apple, and if you can find them in the grocery store, you can use that one. For healthier choices, try organic instead of natural. You will be able to find this along with a variety of other fruits.
There are only three meals a day left in our fast-paced lives. This is why it is crucial to make healthy dinners for yourself and the entire family. This doesn’t mean you have to throw everything away. What it does mean is that you have to be selective about what you serve.
One easy way to keep things low is to skip the turkey. The turkey is huge meat that requires a lot of fat, and calories. Since there are healthier alternatives out there, such as turkey bacon, ham, and even sweet potatoes, you can skip the turkey. This cuts down on your overall fat count greatly, you can even find vegan recipes if you fancy healthy food.
A great alternative is baked potato. These are very low in fat but still, pack some flavor. You can bake these in the oven, or on the grill (be sure to keep them hot though). There are endless ways to use these!
Of course, nothing beats a good steak on the grill. When you are looking for the best kind, look for the ones marinated first. That way you can take a nice, long, cool, dry, and hot steak and create an amazing dish. You can even go the extra mile and add some apple sauce and a little lemon juice to kick things up even more. Then just bring it right back over for a delicious dinner. This can be done every day of the week, so you are never starved for choice!
Finally, don’t forget dessert! The traditional dessert at Thanksgiving is pudding, but there are so many delicious desserts you can try. Creamy almond cakes are a nice change of pace, or you could go with chocolate fudge. If you are feeling particularly creative, you could even consider making your banana pudding. This would be a unique and tasty treat to share with friends and family.

Where to Find Recipes?
There are many places that you can purchase Thanksgiving recipes online. Most have free recipes, but some will charge a small fee. You can also find recipe books at many book stores, and in some grocery stores as well. But if you are creative and have time, you could make some of your own and send them out to your family and friends as well. It would be such a great surprise, and you could make them all different from time to time. That way, everyone will have a different one this year!
Take time to sit down with your family this year, and figure out which recipes you want to try. Make sure to plan. Send your family an email before Thanksgiving, and then make the deliveries. That way, they won’t feel rushed when they get the presents, and you won’t have to clean up the mess. You may even decide to make homemade gift bags with your recipes, and send them along with the gifts!
One thing you can do is to make your invitations to your Thanksgiving party. This way, you can be sure that all of your family members will show up! And you don’t have to spend a lot of money doing it either. Just take a plain piece of paper, and print out some cute invitations for your family!
