Can't bear the thought of Thanksgiving dinner with the usual trimmings? Try boneless chicken breasts topped with a fabulous maple-infused stuffing: all the flavors you crave, but ready to serve in less than an hour. Recipe: Chicken with Maple Stuffing
Pesto gives beef a burst of freshness and holiday color in this herb-heavy recipe. And only 25 minutes in the oven? That's something to be thankful for! Recipe: Garlic and Herb Beef Tenderloin
Impress your guests with this seemingly complicated centerpiece of cornish game hens. No one will ever know it took only 5 minutes to prep, an hour to cook and a few minutes to plate. Recipe: Middle Eastern Cornish Hens
Kick off the holiday season right with a beautifully glazed ham. Tradition is king in our retro recipe featuring plump sultanas (better known as golden raisins). Recipe: Ham with Orange and Stone-Ground Mustard
Need a pretty Thanksgiving meal in a short amount of time? Our elegant pork tenderloin will be prepped, cooked and on the table in 40 minutes flat: We promise. Recipe: Rosemary Apricot Pork Tenderloin
Pears and pork go together like pilgrims and indians in this superb tenderloin. Present right in the baking dish so your guests can enjoy the pretty caramelized shallots and browned pears before they gobble them down. Recipe: Pork Loin with Roasted Pears and Shallots
Vegetarians wanting something special on the big day need look no further than our ultra cheesy strata. The serving also doubles as a decadent side for the carnivores among you. Recipe: Herbed Spinach and Goat Cheese Strata
This leg of lamb shows off holiday color and flavor with a seasonal pomegranate glaze. The simply fruity marinade is perfect for the tender lamb. Recipe: Pomegranate Roasted Leg of Lamb
Our melt-in-your-mouth brisket didn't start out that way; it's infamously one of the tougher cuts of beef. This one takes a tender turn with a long slow roast in the oven and a rich wine gravy. Recipe: Brisket of Beef
Allow a leg of lamb two days to soak in our strong herby and red wine marinade. Once the big day arrives, you will only need 30 minutes cook time. Recipe: Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Mint Pepper Jelly
