All year long I look forward to a Thanksgiving Dinner that is pretty much a re-creation of every Thanksgiving I can remember: Dad’s famous stuffing, grandma’s broccoli casserole, my aunt’s pumpkin soup… Those family favorites just seem like what Thanksgiving should taste like. At some point it’s time to pass the torch and hand those recipes down to the next generation. And I have found in my own family that asking for those recipes can bring up all kinds of family lore.  This year, why not come to Thanksgiving prepared with recipe cards to get everyone to share their favorite recipes?
