The worst thing about being the hostess with the mostest for the holidays is all of the stress it brings. But it doesn’t have to be stressful if you plan ahead and maximize ingredients across the board. When it comes to planning the perfect menu, it can be hard to please everybody.
We scoured the web for some of the most versatile and tasty recipes that every guest is sure to enjoy. Some options go the more traditional Thanksgiving route, while others add a modern touch to the holiday if you’re wanting to mix it up.
Our sweet tooth was calling this year - so we snapped a quick shot of what we'd like to think is the ultimate dessert spread. You can never go wrong with pie. Enjoy!
