Our Top 10 Classic Thanksgiving Recipes

From Turkey to mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce - our Top 10 Classic Thanksgiving Recipes that you can't NOT make for your Thanksgiving menu! | natashaskitchen.com

Making a brand new recipe for Thanksgiving (the biggest food day of the year) is risky and intimidating, so instead of sharing something new, I put together a list of our top 10 favorite, tried-and-true, Thanksgiving recipes. These are our top rated recipes – well loved by our family and the Natasha’s Kitchen Family (that’s YOU!).

I hope you have a delicious week and take many moments to reflect on being thankful. I’m thankful for so much – how the Lord brought our family out of Ukraine as refugees in 1989 to enjoy the abundant life we live in America. It’s humbling to me when I start to consider all that the Lord has blessed me with; the people we have influenced and the families we have blessed with this blog of ours. I’m so thankful for your love and support.

May the Lord bless your families with health, peace, joy and prosper you in whatever your heart desires. I usually write all this sappy stuff at the end but since only 10% of folks reach the bottom of a post (not you, but statistically), I wanted to be sure you all got the message loud and clear. I’m thankful for YOU! 🙂

Now on to the list of Thanksgiving recipes you can’t NOT make for your feast…
