Start your Thanksgiving off right with some delicious appetizers. The holiday salsa will spice up your evening for sure. If you’re looking for a more traditional start though, go for the deviled eggs. I wouldn’t pass up a chance to try the mouth-watering stuffed mushrooms or slow cooker cranberry BBQ meatballs.
All 4 of these dishes are sure to please a hungry crowd while your Thanksgiving meal is being prepared.

The center of every Thanksgiving dinner is the turkey and for some, it is also a juicy ham. My family serves both, although we have a cold ham.
This recipe below for a juicy Thanksgiving turkey is a no fail way to get everyone at the table asking for more.
If your family also enjoys a ham, this old-fashioned holiday glazed ham is well worth a try. The sweetness of pineapple is offset by cloves to make a perfect pairing.
