With Thanksgiving on the horizon, Tricia shared recipes for some of her new and old favorites — dig in, and have a wonderful holiday, filled with lots and lots of local food!

Homemade Cranberry Sauce with Ginger and Pears
Tip: Replace some of the sugar with honey, and use orange zest!

Broccoli Blue Cheese Gratin
Tip: This is a perfect way to jazz up a boring green bean casserole.

Simple Braised Red Cabbage
Tip: Simple, but so delicious and good for you. Red Cabbage boosts the immune system, fights inflammation, and improves gut health

Raw Brussels Sprout Salad
Tip: Something fresh, cool and crisp.

Pumpkin Sage Drop Biscuits
Tip: Don’t have pumpkin? Butternut, Delicata, Acorn — any of these squash will do!

Cranberry Thyme Spritz
Tip: Drop in a dry bubbly instead of the sharp ginger beer for a softer flavor
