Cranberry Brie Pastry Tarts

Mini pastries are the best way to wow. These tarts with cranberries and brie will work, and they're simpler to make than you may think.

Dauphinoise Potatoes

Julia Child made this potato dish famous decades ago, and for good reason, too. Instead of serving mashed potatoes this Thanksgiving, opt for this classic, which incorporates the flavors of France. You'll impress your family and leave them wanting more.

Cheese and Garlic Pull-Apart Bread

This Cheese and Garlic Crack Bread is EPIC! “Crack bread” is an appropriate name for this because it’s garlic bread – on crack…..

It’s basically a cheesy garlic bread, but so much more fun AND delicious! Cheese, garlic and bread – in pull apart bread form. You can’t go wrong. Guaranteed to be the most popular thing at any gathering you take it to!

Maple-Glazed Spatchcock Turkey

You may start to feel tired of the same old flavors in your turkey. Not to worry, as you can put a great twist on your recipe by switching to a Cajun-inspired bird that will pack in the flavor. If you want to have your turkey stand out this holiday season and infuse a bit of spice, this bird won't lead you astray.
