12 Recipes to Make This Thanksgiving

Two years ago, I baked a beautiful pie for Thanksgiving. The caramel sauce overcooked and was a little sour, but it was otherwise perfect. Last year, I baked the driest and most terrible apple pie anyone has ever eaten. I can’t think about that pie and not think about Rachel’s traditional English trifle that Ross said tasted like feet.

Since we have a new baby, we’re in charge of the charcuterie board, but there’s part of me that really wants to bake a pie this year. Maybe for Christmas? Baking (ok and cooking) are things I’d like to get better at – especially now that I have a baby and house and might have to actually host people for dinner at some point in my life.
