Pick a Side to Bring

Turkey gets a lot of love, but it takes teamwork to make the dream work. And it just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving dinner without sweet potatoes, stuffing and the rest of the crew.

My new favorite side to bring to Friendsgiving dinners is brie mashed potatoes. They're like regular potatoes, but 1000% better because there’s surprise pockets of creamy cheese in each bite.

Thanksgiving Dessert (Not Just Pie!)

Rather than bring plain ol’ pumpkin pie to my mom’s house on Thanksgiving, I like to bring a cream cheese-based pumpkin pie dip instead. It’s much faster to make and everyone says it tastes way better, too.
