in the kitchen | thanksgiving {LA}


{thanksgiving} is by far my favorite holiday.  i love spending time with dear friends & family and eating all of the delicious food that seems to come around only once a year.  i also get absolutely giddy about the planning and preparing of thanksgiving dinner.  for the past three years we have hosted dinner at our home, and we’ll be welcoming friends again this year.  so, when the calendar rolled around to november 1st, i could not contain my excitement . . . i pulled out the old recipe books, sifted through all of my favorites, and started planning our feast.  needless to say, i ended up with a rather long list of delectable dishes and could not bear to give up a single one.  such a dilemma, right? not to worry.  i am cooking a few of the recipes in the weeks before thanksgiving, and that way we get to sample all of our faves! check back every week in november for new holiday recipes.

starting with a major crowd pleaser, squash au gratin.  it’s simple, delicious, and with the gruyère cheese and panko topping even kids will love this one.  it’s a perfect accompaniment when you need to add some vegetables to your thanksgiving menu!!!
