It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means we’re scrambling this weekend to whip up all our favorite Thanksgiving recipes from side dishes to desserts. In addition to making the classic green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes, there’s the guests to think about. There’s so much to consider when planning a feast such as who’s allergic to what, how many guests will be eating and what the heck are you going to feed those picky eaters at the kids table. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or simply in need of some inspiration, The Family Kitchen has got what you need. Recipes after the jump…
