This Thanksgiving, let’s keep it chill in the kitchen. No fancy chef moves here—just simple, tasty bites. We’re talking about the kind of recipes that make you the “it girl” of your holiday gathering, without breaking a sweat. Because who says sophistication requires a marathon in the kitchen? So, slip into your comfiest apron (we’re all about style and comfort, right?) because I’m sharing a few of my favorite easy recipes that I’ve come across on TikTok and believe you would enjoy them as much as I do. Let’s make this Thanksgiving a breeze, one relaxed recipe at a time.
The Lazy Chef’s Secret Weapon
Let’s kick off our stress-free Thanksgiving celebration with a culinary masterpiece that’s as effortless as it is impressive—the Festive Charcuterie Board, aka the lazy chef’s secret weapon. Throw together a bunch of stuff that tastes good, arrange it on a aesthetically pleasing board, and boom—you’re a culinary artist. No apron required. I enjoy Charcuterie Boards because your table instantly goes from “I tried” to “I’m basically a food stylist” and who doesn’t love that?!
My Moms Famous Corn Casserole Recipe and My Favorite Thanksgiving Dish
Speaking of culinary masterpieces! I convinced my mom to do her famous corn casserole recipe that everyone loves just for you! It’s a hit every single time and it’s my favorite Thanksgiving dish! I can smell it just talking about it. This recipe is so special, I am walking you through it step by step with my mom! So grab your best pot, cooking utensils, & baking dishes. Let’s go!
Back to Basics
When Thanksgiving comes to mind, there’s nothing quite like the comforting thought of creamy mashed potatoes. They’re not just a dish; they’re a tradition! You know what makes them even better?! They’re simple to make. Seriously, if you can boil water in a pan, you’re halfway there. Now, I know there are all sorts of versions out there, but me? I like to keep it classy, you know, add a touch of sophistication, throw it in a cute dish and voila! You’re in your Thanksgiving hosting era.
Make a Sweet Impression
Oh, dessert—the sweet finale to the Thanksgiving feast! Now, we’re entering my favorite territory. There’s something about the variety during Thanksgiving that makes dessert even more exciting. Pies, cakes, cookies and the best part? We can take any recipe and simplify it. Simplifying doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor, work smarter, not harder, right? Take the classic Pecan pie, for example. I found this adorable recipe that takes the stress out of baking and serving. Mini pecan pies! How genius is that? Everyone gets their own little piece of pecan perfection without the hassle of serving everyone. What’s your go-to dessert hack for the holidays? Share the sweetness!
Baking hack: Try Marie Callender’s pies from Walmart! Some don’t even require baking. It doesn’t get easier that that! They’re affordable and tastes so good! Like they were freshly made! “Nobody’s gonna know” Gosh I love Tiktok ha! My favorites are Marie Callender’s Pecan Pie and Pumpkin Pie!
