November Recipe Roundup—It’s Thanksgiving!

It’s November. Let’s talk about Thanksgiving! Here’s a roundup of some tried-and-true recipes—starting with the turkey of course—and the teas to sip before and after feasting. 

Thanksgiving-Ready Recipes

  • Dry-Brined Thanksgiving Turkey: Your Thanksgiving secret will be ourdry brine for a delicious, moist bird to grace your table.
  • Broccoli Rice Casserole: Using fresh, local veggies will kick this classic side dish up a notch. Broccoli should be plentiful at the farmers’ market this time of year so you can skip the frozen option.  
  • Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Pie: We know, pumpkin pie can seem a bit… obvious. But adding some local sweet potatoes can give this a sweet Louisiana twist.
  • Turkey and Brie Panini: Impress the in-laws and use up some of those leftovers in a sandwich with somefig pepper jelly. Gumbo and casseroles are winners too.


  • Chamomile Flowers Tea: Need some calm while prepping the feast? Take a breather with a cup of this. (Or better yet, sneak away for a break from all the family.)
  • Tummy Ease Tea: Sip this to aid digestion after the big meal, thanks to the ginger and fennel.Peppermint Tea can be a good after-dinner drink as well.
  • Buzzworthy Tea: Need a pick-me-up after the turkey? Or are you hitting up the Black Friday or Small Business Saturday sales? Brew a cup of this highly energizing brew.   
  • Rooibos Vanilla Chai Tea: Feeling like it’s no longer fall but not quite the holidays? Notes of ginger, vanilla, and cardamom perfectly bridge the seasons.
