Or any other holiday or reason to gather and eat. I like collecting recipes. Maybe one day I’ll actually try some of these.

Traditional Thanksgiving:



Warm Side Dishes:


I am going to add more to this list today. But I wanted to hit publish already…

Mrs. S. says

Yum! Just reading this list is making me hungry! :-)

Thanks for including my recipe.

Leora says

With pleasure! The post needed something chocolatey and rich. Your recipe fit the bill!

Rachel says

Lovely lovely yummy food ideas!

And your painting is wonderful.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Leora says

Rachel, thanks, and thanks for the painting compliment.

Ilana-Davita says

Obviously we are not celebrating Thanksgiving. What will be on your menu?
Thanks for the three mentions; I feel honored.
Have a great Thanksgiving.

Leora says

It's so strange that the rest of the world isn't in Thanksgiving mode. I'm happy that we are doing a real Thanksgiving dinner (despite the fact that I have to do almost all the work). Last year we ordered Chinese food. Will order a little for the one son who wants Chinese.

I'm making turkey tomorrow. Cornbread, too. And a minestrone soup - I'll save chicken soup for Shabbat.

Robin from Israel says

Delicious sounding recipes, my mouth is watering! Beautiful painting too.
