    Thanksgiving Offerings

    Our family roots in this country go back to 1627 New England. When we visited Colonial Williamsburg some years ago, we fell in love with their inns and old recipes. We decided to change our Thanksgiving menu to include many of these recipes and to reflect our ancestors reliance on both the land and the sea. When my children were younger, I tried to make things as much "from scratch" as possible, including picking the apples at an apple farm and the pumpkins from a pumpkin patch. We cooked all day, all together for at least a week! Now we just keep all the same recipes using some modern shortcuts; but the memories are all the same ... and you better not leave out any dishes.

    This spicy sauce is scented with rosemary, sage, thyme and bay slightly sweet and spicey! feel free to enjoy with more heat add a crushed garlic clove or sweeten as you like! This injection solution gives your Turkey, Chicken, Pork, or Beef delish flavor and moisture.

    Recipe #145904

    This pie crust retains the flavor of an all butter crust, but is flakier because of the shortening. The lemon juice isn't in the recipe for lemon flavour... trust me you won't taste it, but rather to work with the flour and prevent the pastry from being tough. I also find that the dough gives a bigger yield than the original 9 inch size stated, I roll mine relatively thin and can get a full top and bottom for a 26 cm (12 inch) shallow pie dish. I have included 20+ step by step photographs to help you see *exactly* how this is made so that you now have instructions for making an entire pie crust from ingredients to table. The new instructions may look long, but I have only tried to give practical details to that even if this is your first ever pie crust, you will have ALL the information you need for success. Enjoy! ZWT REGION: United States.

    Allow 12 - 18 hours for the turkey to marinate in the brine. It's worth the wait as this process always assures a moist, flavorful turkey.

    A cool beverage for any occasion.

    Recipe #118171

    These mashed potatoes can be made ahead, then baked in the oven or reheated in a crockpot. Perfect for Thanksgiving and very creamy.

    Recipe #151985

    My friend Barbara makes very good pies, so, if I want a simple old-fashioned apple pie, this is the recipe I use.

    Recipe #151966

    This stuffing recipe used to be on the Mrs. Cubbison's stuffing box before "low fat" became the norm. We still like it this way with all the added veggies.

    Recipe #151968

    This is another of our favorite recipes from Colonial Williamsburg. Although we always include it in our Thanksgiving menu, we also eat this one for dinner at many other times of year.

    Recipe #151969

    This appetizer originally came from a Colonial Williamsburg cookbook. It is now part of our Thanksgiving afternoon, leading up to dinner.

    Recipe #151970

    This is another of our Thanksgiving recipes that originated in Colonial Williamsburg.

    Recipe #151971

    Recipe #151972

    This recipe originally came from a Colonial Williamsburg cookbook. The ginger and nutmeg make it a little different from the majority of creamed spinach recipes.

    Recipe #151973

    This recipe came from a Colonial Williamsburg cookbook. It is now part of our Thanksgiving tradition.

    Recipe #151974

    These muffins are part of our Thanksgiving tradition. Since we have many dishes for this holiday, I often make these muffins in mini-muffin pans and bake them only half as long.

    Recipe #151975

    Wonderful for Thanksgiving or Christmas to serve with your turkey! This is another one of my mother-in-law's recipes that my husband must have for the holidays!

    Recipe #47913

    Well, after looking for this recipe on here and not having any luck, I decided to find it and post it. In my opinion, this is the best pumpkin pie. Make your own graham cracker crust or buy an already prepared one.

    Recipe #101104

    This is my favorite version of the bacon wrapped water chestnuts appetizer.

    Recipe #91712

    Mother's version that delights us every Thanksgiving.

    Salmagundi was the chef's salad of 18th century England. In present day England and in Colonial Williamsburg, the name has been revived. My mother enjoyed serving this as a main course for dinner. We always liked it!

    Recipe #57929

    When we visited Williamsburg VA, we went to all the inns and taverns in the historic district. Then we bought a cookbook and made a new Thanksgiving tradition centered around many of the historic recipes. This is our Thanksgiving soup.
