Thanksgiving

For eaters of all generations, this may be the most wonderful time of the year. Whether you’re in hot pursuit of new Thanksgiving recipes to please every palate (yes, you can make your vegan cousin happy!) or you’re focused on decorating the table in a whole new way, we have the advice and strategies you crave. And because we all know Thanksgiving is not just about the moment of truth, but the many moments leading up to it (and how to pack away the leftovers later), we have timelines, shopping lists, organizing advice, and play-by-play plans to make sure the season is filled with lots more joy than stress. Experienced hosts can find fresh inspiration, those new to the role can get all the lessons they need—and a guest who wants to wow ’em with a stunning side dish will find a vast array of options. It’s all here, from soup to nuts. Or rather, from soup to stuffed mushrooms to mashed potatoes to green beans to turkey to cranberry sauce to apple pie. Hungry yet?
