my favorite thanksgiving recipes. soup, lasagna and pie, oh my!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays- my favorite part being able to cook for my family. For the past few years I’ve made quite a few things and these three are my top recipes:

Paula Deen’s Pumpkin Pie – so easy and beyond delicious. I made homemade pie crust compliments of Emeril, but shaping that into a pie dish is not an easy feat. It did turn out quite yummy and flaky! I will likely buy my own pie crust next year, sorry Emeril!

It turned out pretty good, I must say….

My second two favorites are Giada’s Butternut Squash Lasagna and Paula Deen’s Creamy Squash Soup. The butternut squash lasagna takes a good 2 and a half hours but is worth the wait AND the two sink-fuls of dishes. In this recipe Giada uses mozzarella and parmegiano reggiano instead of ricotta. It includes a divine beschamel along with squash puree. Nothing smells better than this cooking in the oven. If I had the time I’d definitely make this more often.

Last, but definitely not least would be Paula Deen’s Creamy Squash Soup. This has always been a hit with anyone and everyone in my family. It takes about an hour to make but I swear it is impossible to mess up this recipe! It is creamy and divine. I served it in my Mom’s pumpkin shaped tureen. It was enjoyed by all, and don’t forget to garnish with sour cream!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
