Make This! Thanksgiving Edition

By: Lisa Ng

Is your stomach grumbling at the mere thought of Thanksgiving this coming weekend?

If you've been invited to a dinner, but have no idea what to bring - here are a few of my favourite recipes that we've shared over the years from our Make This! column which would be a perfect fit for Thanksgiving:

Need an appetizer? This Tomato + Salami Crostini features fresh cheese and basil. It's perfect for making ahead of time and pairs well with a nice red wine. Leave it out for guests to help themselves.

In charge of bringing a vegetable side? This Gourmet Green Beans recipe features fancy items like slivered almonds, orange segments and dates. It's super healthy too!

Avoid the canned stuff at all costs and make this Easy Cranberry Sauce with fresh berries and orange zest. It can even be prepared a day ahead of time.

Instead of plain old dinner rolls, come prepared with these Garlic Bread Knots made with pizza dough. Your family will love you forever - they are incredibly addictive and smell amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving!
