Gratitude. Pure and simple. For friends, clients, and customers like you. For delicious food to share together and enjoy. For health and happiness (and a decent dose of laughs) and family that surrounds and supports us. We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday immensely!

New England Savories…

We know you all have your main dish covered…The Big Bird. Everyone has their perfect way of preparing it. But why not have some fun with the side dishes? Mix it up! Try something new! Maybe some of these that have definitively New England flavors…

Maple…

Sweet and superb flavors mingle in Roasted Squash with Maple Syrup and Sage Cream, as well as Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts (super yum!) and Maple-Ginger Roasted Vegetables with Pecans. Those pecans add a great crunch! An unexpected combination is maple and thyme but you will love Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Vegetable with Maple Syrup and Thyme, trust us.

Cranberry…

These tart little fruits add a big wallop of flavor especially in a Kale Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette. Yes, kale. Try the kale! Also try making your own Homemade Cranberry Sauce-it’s so easy, you’ll be amazed and never go back to canned again. A new way to get some greens on that plate is with Broccoli and Cranberry Salad and with Sweet and Savory Haricots Verts. Crunchy, fruity and good. Lastly, experiment with rice this year Wild Rice with Cranberries and Caramelized Onions. We think you will enjoy it!

Seafood…

Nothing says New England like great seafood and these can be used as entrees or great appetizers (think soup shots)…Lobster Bisque and creamy Seafood Bisque are luxurious and delicious. Try a moist Herbed Oyster Dressing, along with a warm Clam Dip and Oysters Rockefeller. Guests bellies will be happy!

…and Sweets for your holiday table

It’s Thanksgiving. Time to make our buttons pop. And topping off the meal with an array of mouth-watering, show-stopping desserts it the way to do it! Buttons away!

Pies and Cobblers…

New England tradition says that apples and cheddar are perfect companions so try an Apple-Pear Cobbler with Cheddar Crust! Spicy and sweet Ginger-Spice Cranberry-Apple Streusel Pie and Pear Cranberry Cobbler will also end your meal on a sweet note!

Puddings and more…

Have you ever tried Indian Pudding? Topped with fresh whipped cream or ice cream, this is comfort food at its best. A nice break from pies, Pumpkin Mousse and Pumpkin Ice Cream both capture the flavors of the season, too. And to accompany your meal, enjoy hearty Boston Brown Bread and sweet and crumbly Honey Cornbread Muffins in your bread basket.
