Minimalist Thanksgiving

I need help finding some really easy, uncomplicated one-pot Thanksgiving recipes! I'll be hosting an orphan's potluck for 4-8 people at my place this year and I need to provide a couple dishes. Problem is, I'm a notoriously shitty cook which means I never cook which means I have a really understocked kitchen. And I'm kinda poor. [more inside]

Vegetarian seeking meat.

How do I cook the best turkey (and) and fixings meal for just myself (for a whole weekend)? I'm basically going to put on some Abba, and eat like crazy this weekend. So tell me how I can make the best Thanksgiving turkey and sides! Oh, this is anonymous because I am a vegetarian for moral reasons. Also, I prefer to limit it to just one type of animal, so no bacon wrapped shrimp. Probably no bacon wrapped shrimp. Recipes of good sides preferably not using just turkey.

She will be coming home for Thanksgiving and I'd like to make some gluten-free dishes for our family pot-luck style dinner.

Let's get corny

I'm participating in a Thanksgiving potluck this weekend. I've been assigned a corn based dish - possibly a casserole of some sort. I'm not a good cook, but can manage simple things. Does anyone have any favorite corn based recipes that are more involved than heating up frozen or canned veggies? [more inside]

Traditions, turkeyless, and tears

This is the first Thanksgiving we're having since my mom passed away 4 months ago, and I'm not looking forward to it. My sister has invited my little family (me, hubby, and 3yr old) to her in-laws house, but I'm not comfortable with their family. I want to start a tradition at our home, cook something small but special, and do something so I'm not thinking about her all day and how much my heart is broken. [more inside]

What kind of dressing should I use on my turkey?

TurkeyFilter: Last night I tested this year's turkey recipe, and it was a failure. I usually make a maple syrup/butter/broth reduction and use that and cheesecloth to make a wonderful bird - 4 years running. This year, though, I have to make a kosher bird as the meal will be held at a kosher family member's residence. The olive oil-based recipe I tried left the skin dry and soggy at the same time - not an easy feat - and the bird was OK but not special. We've deep-fried before to great results, and I assume peanut oil is kosher; should I adjust for another type of non-butter fat (would margarine work? olive oil certainly didn't) or just bite the bullet and deep-fry?
