One week until Thanksgiving, people! This year, I’ll be ditching New York and going home to St. Louis, which I couldn’t be more excited about. My mom typically handles the cooking, even though, yes, I am a professionally trained chef. But honestly, I can’t wait for the vacation from 8-hour cooking days. And everything always tastes best when mom makes it anyway, right?
Although I’m not leading the charge next Thursday, I will be making a select few dishes. Not only will this take some of the stress off of mama, but mostly because I’m not a traditional eater, and I need to make sure my Thanksgiving faves are treated with care and attention. Yes, even vegetarians can love Thanksgiving. Don’t believe me? Just check out these tried-and-true recipes that will please everyone, including those progressive veggie-loving foodies, while also staying true to the festivity, indulgence and seasonality of the holiday.
