Lazy Food, Lazy Seasonal

The 21 Easiest Side Dishes and Desserts For Thanksgiving

Cooking for a crowd can be tough. 

Grandpa Joe doesn’t like nuts. Cousin Pete doesn’t eat vegetables. Twice-removed-Aunt-Kim’s-health-nut-boyfriend Hubert refuses sugar after 11:06 a.m.

Hey, I feel ya. You can’t possibly please everyone, so just make Thanksgiving cooking easy on yourself with these 21 side dishes and desserts. You won’t be putting a ton of effort in because they’re super easy, and if you do end up with leftovers because of dang boyfriend Hubert, it’s definitely not a bad thing; these recipes are yum-diddly-umptious! I wouldn’t mind having leftovers from all of these recipes (especially the desserts 🤤).

So actually thanks, Hubert. My sweet tooth appreciates your willpower.
