Thanksgiving Menu: An Intimate Affair

Related To:

Even if you’re only cooking for a few guests and not a crowd, there’s no need to skimp on your T-Day spread. To help with the prep, stop by a local bakery for fresh cornbread and a pick up good quality cranberry sauce (I like this one from Stonewall Kitchen). Then, rather than a huge bird, opt for a smaller turkey breast. All this will save you some time, and you’ll still have plenty of leftovers.

    Here are recipes for a simple menu perfect for two to six:
