Easy Thanksgiving Recipes

This year, my boyfriend and I were unable to travel back home for Thanksgiving, which means the two of us (who, mind you, know how to cook approximately three meals each), are in charge of cooking a full Thanksgiving meal together.  Without the watchful eyes of our incredible mothers, we did what all millennials do, and looked to the internet for help. Here’s a compilation of easy Thanksgiving recipes you can make for yourself or for your family! I’m sure whoever you are celebrating the holiday with will appreciate the extra help.

Just remember, at the end of the day it isn’t about the food, but rather the people with whom you share it. Happy Thanksgiving!
