    Are you as full and satisfied and happy and filled with turkey and stuffing and veggies and cranberry sauce and everything else as I am? Thanksgiving 2013 has, sadly, come and gone. Can you believe it? Fun family times, cooking, eating, drinking, watching football, saying what we're thankful for ... but now, while the last thing you want to think about is eating, you still have ALL THOSE LEFTOVERS.

    What to do with all that leftover turkey? Of course it's delicious with turkey sandwiches, but maybe you want to switch it up a bit and cook something a little heartier (and cheesier) to get you through these freezing temperatures. How about some pasta? Sweet! Just check out this Turkey Tetrazzini recipe from Pioneer Woman. As she said, you'll want to roast an entire turkey just to have enough left over for this recipe. There might be a big of chopping involved, but all you really have to do is put everything into one big pot!

    Every year on Thanksgiving we stuff ourselves with the perfectly roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce and all the desserts we can fit into our bellies. Then we sit around watching football and hanging out with family. All in all, it’s a nice tradition and not a bad way to spend a Thursday afternoon but have you ever wondered what they ate in 1621 at that first Thanksgiving when the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians celebrated together?

    While there are no home movies or printed menu of the first Thanksgiving to tell us exactly what was eaten, there are a few things we know from historical accounts of the times. It is well known that William Bradford sent a group on a “fowling” mission in preparation of the three-day celebration. Fowling could have very well meant wild turkey (the bird not the alcoholic beverage) or it could have meant ducks, geese or swan since they were commonly eaten. But what else might they have eaten?

    It's almost here! Can you believe that a week from today, Thanksgiving will already be over? You will most likely be 20 pounds heavier and, feeling the effects of that tryptophan, still drowsing around in your sweatpants. I can't wait!

    So of course you are on the hunt for Thanksgiving recipes and want to impress your family and friends with the best of the best. If you're tasked with bringing or making a side dish, you may want to check out this recipe for corn pudding. You probably already have most of the ingredients, it requires whisking everything together, then putting it in the oven, and it will soon become a delicious holiday staple. Just be sure to use an oblong or shallow dish so the pudding will set.

    Sweet, creamy, comforting, flavorful, no wonder Thanksgiving ranks at the top of most people's favorite holidays. Can't wait for the eating (and drinking) to commence!

    No offense to vegetarians, but for me, one of the tell-tale signs that I'm eating something extraordinarily delicious is if I don't even realize it contains not an ounce of meat. This creamy, cheesy, absolutely amazing baked pumpkin fettuccine alfredo, courtesy of How Sweet It Is, is the perfect meal to try as we -- believe it or not -- wind down from pumpkin season and shift into gingerbread, eggnog, and all-things peppermint season.

    It's Thanksgiving! Time to loosen your belt, find your stretchy pants, and call dibs on the most comfortable spot on the couch because it's time to fill your gut with the most glutinous foods around. T-day isn't the time to worry about if your butt is going to jiggle like cranberry sauce, it's time to be thankful for all the wild, wacky, and wonderful things in your life. Speaking of ... what a wild, wacky, and wonderful life it is, right?

    People can tell a lot about your life by what you eat and how you eat it. You are what you eat kind of thing, but in a whole other realm of weird. These are my guesses of what your style of Thanksgiving dinner says about you. See if I'm spot on.

    Whoa, best ever? That's a bold claim to make, especially when everyone is frantically scouring the Internet for recipes since Thanksgiving is coming up fast and furious. Still, this supposedly best ever green bean casserole recipe by Alton Brown should helpfully steer you in the right direction. There's nothing that screams Thanksgiving quite like a perfectly cooked, deliciously crunchy green bean casserole, after all (though with this recipe, Thanksgiving might not be the only time you prepare it!).

    It seems that some folks had problems getting the onions to bake consistently per the reviews, so instead, you might want to buy some fried onions. You really can't go wrong with drenching green beans in mushrooms, garlic, and nutmeg with crunchy onions on top. Just be sure to wear your sweatpants.
