Recipe ideas for your Thanksgiving feast from The Hollyday's favorite food blogs.

We like to think we’re knowledgable about the topics on which we cover here on The Hollyday, but when it comes to the kitchen, we are definitely not experts.  So on holidays when we’re expected to literally bring something to the table, we turn to our favorite food blogs to show us the ropes. We’re sharing them with you below, in the event this holiday has snuck up on you and you need a last minute dish for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast.


Food blogger and former private chef Gaby Dalkin has every recipe you can ever imagine on her blog, What’s Gaby Cooking. We love her take on California cuisine and her Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu (complete with a prep schedule and easy-to-follow instructions) includes anything and everything you could want on your Thanksgiving table. We love her Wild Mushroom Stuffing, Peas and Pancetta and Brie Stuffed Mushrooms, all of which we’ll be making for this year’s Thanksgiving. Follow her on Snapchat (@whatsgabycookin) where she hosts a live “Snapisode” and makes a different dish every Friday with step-by-step instructions.


Adeline Alley is a food blog written two sisters living in the South, sharing delectable Southern recipes like Creole Crawfish PastaTurkey Meatballs and Spinach Madeline. Can’t make it to your family’s Thanksgiving but still want to celebrate? Try their easy Turkey for Two recipe. We can personally attest to the deliciousness of their Roasted Brussels Sprouts, which would make the perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving meal.


Anytime we’re in search of an appetizer or cocktail recipe for a gathering, we know we can hop over to and find what we’re looking for. This fancy-looking but super easy cheese and charcuterie platter would be perfect to throw together for an appetizer, and there’s no cooking time needed! In charge of libations? There’s a whole section full of unique and delicious cocktail recipes here.


We’ve raved about Sakara Life before and we’ll rave about it again. The nutritional meal delivery company keeps us on the right track with healthy recipes on their blog, The S-Life Mag. For a lighter, but equally tasty option, try these colorful Sweet Potato Shiitake Bites or this Creamy Roasted Corn Soup, both perfect for a fall table. And after all the indulging that lies ahead this Thanksgiving, check out their nutritional meals (delivered ready to eat, straight to your door) for a post-holiday cleanse. You’ll be ready for a break from cooking, anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving and happy feasting from your friends at The Hollyday.
