THANKSGIVING dinner planning

Thanksgiving is known as a family-bonding holiday, but the cooks in the family (i.e. me!) spend most of it stuck in the kitchen. Rather than taking the entire day to prepare one meal, you can prepare a number of Thanksgiving recipes in advance to serve or reheat the next day. Check out all my tips for planning from today and our Thanksgiving menu for this year!

make this VEGAN GRAVY!

When it comes to gravy, it doesn’t hurt having a couple different ones to serve during the holidays. Using the turkey drippings, it’s easy to make a delicious gravy. But if you’re looking for something vegan for the non-meat eaters, or just something lighter you need to try my vegan mushroom gravy!
