How to Cook a Wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner

How are your Thanksgiving dinner plans shaping up?

If you’re reading my blog, you may still be looking for new ideas or recipes for family favorites.

When I was looking for Thanksgiving dinner tips, I found a great article, “A Diabetes-Friendly Thanksgiving Feast: Eat, Be Merry, and Still Keep Your Blood Sugar in Control,” on Prevention.com. Holiday classics are offered, along with some tasty new dishes. All the recipes are diabetes friendly so all members of the family and guests can enjoy them.

The entrees, side dishes, and desserts featured in the article are:

Curried Butternut Squash Soup
Cheddar Pepper Muffins
Herb-Rubbed Roast Turkey
Herb-Roasted Potato Medley
Candied Sweet Potatoes
Ginger Green Beans
Fresh Fruit and Cranberry Relish
Honey-Baked Acorn Squash
Can't-Believe-It's-Casserole with Artichoke and Crab
Honey-Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Red Onion
Citrus-Steamed Asparagus
Slimming Cranberry Stuffing
Button Mushroom and Barley Stuffing
Rustic Plum-Walnut Tart
Warm Gingerbread-Pumpkin Pudding
Sweet Raisin-Apple Strudel
Fruit 'n' Nut Pumpkin Bars
