My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

This post is for my friends and family who want to find all my favorites in one easy spot.

Today is Tuesday. I'll start by making the cornbread for my dressing (4 boxes of Jiffy) and the turkey stock.

Here's what I think I'll do this year. Every year I ponder the "giblets" but in all honesty, I have no idea what's what. I can look at pictures all day on the internet, but somehow it never looks like what came out of my turkey. For that reason, I just stick with using a whole bunch of turkey necks.

Yummy (Easy) Pulled Pork Barbecue

(I was reviewing posts I'd started and never finished when I found this one. Egads! How long has it been sitting here?)

Although I grew up in the South, I am embarrassed to admit that I was a about 13 or 14 before I had my first taste of pulled pork. I was with my friends, hanging out at the beach (DeBordieu, South Carolina) when my friend's family brought in  a big ol' side of pig. Holy moly! I couldn't believe how amazing it was. So peppery and vinegary. So incredible. I swore that if I were on my death bed, this was the only thing I'd order. Although I make no claim in duplicating that barbecue, I think this barbecue is pretty damn good. And who knew it could be so easy? I made it to take to a Jennifer's house for the superbowl tonight. (Um. I't obviously not Superbowl time. A forgotten post.) Julianne brought coleslaw. Mmm . . . it was so yummy!

Burger Sauce: What's that, you say?

(Pictures? I didn't take any, but I'll definitely be making these again, so check back.)

Why have I never heard of a burger sauce? It has to be the greatest thing since sliced bread! I was watching a video on America's Test Kitchen website about burgers and they mentioned it. So, a couple of nights ago I made burgers to die for.

The Deviled Egg Bar

I was surfing around on Pinterest one day and saw a FABULOUS idea - the deviled egg bar. Make deviled eggs, then serve them with a variety of yummy accoutrements. Mmm . . . I had to get on that bandwagon. Shortly thereafter, I was heading to an event where I needed some kind of appetizer but I didn't have time to run to the store. Ta da! I always have eggs!

Happy New Year (a.k.a. Cooking for a Crowd)

I used to be terrified to cook for large masses of people. I had no idea where to start. Even when we'd have friends over for dinner, I'd use the kids as an excuse to just order pizza. But then there was Beersheba . . .
