Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and although I can't cook, like, at all, I do enjoy looking at recipes. There's absolutely no reason for you to trust me, but you should trust the ladies I've pulled these recipes from. If you're useless in the kitchen and too lazy to look around the internet, use these recipes as your starting point. They'll help make your Thanksgiving not suck. -Katie
