I’m not much of a sports guy, but this… this is my Super Bowl. For years, I’ve been perfecting the ultimate Thanksgiving feast. From the roasted turkey to the sugar-dusted cranberries, every dish on the menu is delicious. So, if there’s one thing I can brag about (without feeling guilty), it’s my Thanksgiving recipes. This menu also happens to be free of gluten, grain, and dairy because these days, food sensitivities are more common than ever before, including in our family. But I can promise that nothing is compromised on flavor!
(If you scroll all the way to the bottom, I’ve also added some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes for those without those sensitivities.)
To make things easy to follow along, here’s a free downloadable printable with a detailed schedule and instructions for cooking this entire menu. It’s designed for the use of one oven, and prep begins on Sunday (well in advance) so that you’re cool as a cucumber on the 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 can be prepped and executed in about two to three hours.
This post originated a few 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! It is 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.
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.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
