I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving and that your bellies are satisfied too! I did not post Pre-Thanksgiving recipes because I had honestly never cooked for this Holiday before……. but this year I decided to put my big girl panties on and give it a shot. My sister Ashley and my sister-in-law Liz helped as well and it was DELICIOUS! I will post the links to the recipes we used and write out the recipe for the Taylor’s Cranberry Sauce (which is amazing)! This is a perfect Beginners Menu and will most likely be staples for the years to come. Enjoy!
