I’m not much of a sports guy… but this. This is my Super Bowl, and it’s game time, baby.
For years I’ve been perfecting my Thanksgiving dishes, from the turkey to the cranberry sauce, and maybe this menu will continue to evolve, but every recipe is so delicious and sure to please any crowd. Everything on this menu also happens to be free of gluten, grain and dairy because of some food sensitivities in our family, but nothing is compromised on flavor (if you scroll all the way to the bottom, I’ve also added some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes that are not grain & dairy free for those without those sensitivities).
To make things easy to follow along, here’s a free downloadable printable with a detailed schedule of instructions for cooking this entire menu. It’s designed for use of one oven, and I start several days in advance so I’m cool as a cucumber day of.
Here are all of the recipes I’ll be referencing, starting with the turkey!
Everyone knows the importance of the turkey on Thanksgiving, and we also know it takes more than gravy to fix a dry, flavorless turkey. I share all the tips and techniques that will help you roast and carve a perfect, tender, and juicy turkey for Thanksgiving.
Of course, maybe Thanksgiving this year will be a little more low key for you. If that’s the case, I also have a one-plate Thanksgiving dinner that is the full experience, can be prepped and executed in about 2-3 hours.
This post originated a couple of years back when we were all couped up and avoiding large gatherings, but I stand by it! If you’re looking to simplify Thanksgiving this year or are cooking for a group of 4, this low-key Thanksgiving dinner is perfect for you! Still so delicious, and also happens to be gluten, grain, and dairy free.
If there are no food sensitivities present, these recipes are phenomenal and worth a try! The cornbread stuffing, especially, is one of my best recipes of all time.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
