4 Game-Changing Thanksgiving Cookbooks

POSTED BY prbythebook ON November 26, 2013

PioneerHolidayCoverSmallbWhether you’re throwing a quiet Thanksgiving dinner at your place or are heading over to a relative’s house for a massive get-together, showing a little creativity in the kitchen will leave your guests feeling immensely grateful (and just generally full). If you want dishes that will guarantee raving reviews, here are 4 Thanksgiving cookbooks that will steal the spotlight from crazy Uncle Phil!

Knickerbocker Glory: The Chef’s Guide to Innovation  
This cookbook is all about innovation. Buttery mashed potatoes are great, but what if you could take it one or two steps further? If you’ve used the same recipe year after year and want to be more experimental, this book will help you methodically formulate and execute new recipes.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays: 140 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Celebrations
Who doesn’t love the The Pioneer Woman? Not only does her blog make you laugh, but she also has really easy-to-follow recipes for the domestically challenged. Lucky us, she now has a recipe book covering her 12 favorite holidays throughout the year, including Thanksgiving!

William Sonoma Entertaining: Thanksgiving Entertaining
From the drinks you serve to how to decorate your table to step-by-step recipes, this book has everything you need to know from the beginning of the Thanksgiving experience to the very end.  This cookbook focuses specifically on all things Thanksgiving, so if this is your first go at hosting a holiday event, then this is the book for you.

Sweet Debbie’s Organic Cupcakes
Dessert is definitely the one of the best parts of the Thanksgiving meal. However, when serving a large party, make sure that you consider those with allergies. If you want to make a Thanksgiving dessert that’s an all around crowd pleaser, Debbie’s gluten, dairy, nut, sugar, and egg-free recipes are your best bet. Everything in this cookbook is vegan, but based on the sugary goodness you would never be able to tell. Oh, and side note, Gwyneth Paltrow swears by these desserts!
