Growing up my family had no instant pot (because it didn’t exist) we spent hours before every holiday preparing meals.
Cooking and baking can be a whole lot more fun and less stressful, when you’re prepared. These days, Thanksgiving doesn’t mean that you need to spend endless hours in the kitchen, unless of course – you want to!
There are endless possibilities for fall’s favorite recipes and here I’ve gathered a few of many great ones out there.
