It's never too soon to start thinking about what to make for Thanksgiving. During Monday's #Weekendeats chat on Twitter, participants were already gearing up for the big day with recipes for everything from cranberry sauce to gratin and cocktails. Here are the highlights:
If you can't bring yourself to use the stuff in a can or are bored with traditional cranberry sauce, Mary and Victor of the blog 2 Sense LA shared seven styles of cranberry sauce, including a bourbon sauce, jalapeno, lime and tomatillo sauce, a port and green peppercorn sauce and more. The blog The Cooking Bride also shared a recipe for a Zinfandel cranberry sauce made with Zinfandel, orange and cranberries.
For a twist on pumpkin pie, Brooks from the blog Calkwalker shared a recipe for country pumpkin torte with layers of ginger pumpkin cake and cream cheese frosting. And if you want to try something really different this year, Jenn from the blog Just Jenn Recipes shared pumpkin pie filled chocolate cupcakes made with King's Hawaiin bakery pumpkin pie filling.
