Thanksgiving from scratch | @thefauxmartha

Before I say Happy Thanksgiving, I wanted to leave you with my made from scratch Thanksgiving menu. Don’t skip the White Wine Gravy, Cranberry Walnut Stuffing, or the Maple Pumpkin Pie. Hallmarks! I’ve included make ahead instructions when possible. To pull this off, I recommend creating a schedule for both the preparation and the oven. Finally, read through the recipes a couple times a day or so in advance to familiarize yourself. It’s kind of like studying for a test except way more fun, and you can bring all your notes.

PS—If you have kids at your table (or a special kids table) try out this fun and disposable table setting idea.


Happy, happy Thanksgiving friends! If you happen to make one of my recipes and run into questions, email me or write me on Instagram. I’ll have my phone nearby.
