• Thank Goodness for Turkey and Fireplaces
    Thanksgiving is in the air. It’s a wonderful time to pull family and friends near, spend time together in the warm glow of the fireplace or stove, and celebrate everything for which we are thankful. Enjoying a delicious meal together is, of course, on the agenda.

    We scoured our courses and tested recipes to find some of the very best Thanksgiving favorites. Now we’d like to share them with you!

    Best Turkey Ever
    Minnesotans are well-versed in making big roaring fires to keep their houses warm. And with all the time they spend indoors, they are also great cooks. If you follow this recipe to the T, omit nothing and cook it with tender loving care, your guests will rave about your turkey for weeks – maybe even months. This recipe for Herb Roasted Turkey is provided by Lunds & Byerlys, a family-owned grocery chain and provider of fine foods in Minnesota.

    Heavenly Mashed Potatoes
    No Thanksgiving meal is really complete without mashed potatoes, which are made even better with an infusion of sour cream. Easy to prepare and serve, this recipe for Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes is provided by Foodnetwork.com.

    Brussels Sprouts Made Good
    Haters of Brussels sprouts have been turned around with this Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe from Foodnetwork.com. If you have a Harman stove with an optional grill, you can roast your sprouts! Try this recipe for Grilled Savory Brussels Sprouts, also from Foodnetwork.com, and use heat from your stove to cook the sprouts.

    Thank Goodness for Pumpkin Pie
    The very best pumpkin pie is homemade and served with a dollop of whipped cream. This recipe for Pumpkin Pie from Lunds & Byerlys of Minnesota is tried and true. And yes, you can use store-bought pie crusts if you’d like!
