Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday to get together and catch up with family and friends. While it’s about spending time with your loved ones, a big focus of the holiday is on the food. Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner at your homestead or traveling for the holiday and bringing a dish with you, you’re going to want to make something that impresses. Check out these 5 recipes that everyone will surely love!

Roasted Butternut Squash Salad
This recipe from Ina Garten is a great addition to any Thanksgiving table. It’s paired with a warm cider vinaigrette, and on the lighter side, which balances out the typical heavier foods that are passed around this holiday. It’s quick and easy to make, while also being healthy and delicious! This salad is great not only for the holiday, but all winter long!

Home Made Cranberry Sauce
While the canned jellied variety of cranberry sauce is often a classic, making your own chunky cranberry sauce is easy to do and bursts with several flavors. This recipe from Alex Guarnaschelli takes just 20 minutes to make and includes hints of cinnamon and orange flavoring. Have this cranberry sauce and you’ll never buy the canned version again!

Spicy Parmesan Green Beans and Kale
Instead of the typical green bean casserole, this Spicy Parmesan Green Beans and Kale recipe from Giada de Laurentiis is a healthier way to get those green vegetables in. It not only includes green beans and kale, but also highlights some mushrooms and onions to make it a well-rounded vegetable side dish. It’s easy to make and takes less than a half hour to put together.

Apple and Onion Stuffin’ Muffins
Stuffing is a must on every Thanksgiving table. What’s great about this recipe from Rachel Ray is that it travels easy. These stuffing muffins also are in smaller portions which will help you to get a taste without eating too much and overstuffing yourself.

Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cakes
If you haven’t filled up on the main course, this dessert is an excellent and versatile dish to make. While pumpkin is definitely a festive flavor option, you could easily make these with Peanut Butter, Banana, or Pineapple! This recipe was made by Paula Deen, so you know it’s going to be tasty!
