This week we called my food column for Alberta at Noon on CBC Radio One, “the sides show”. Turkey dinner is on the short list for my last meal – I love it that much.

I love the whole package: the bird, the mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing and I love all the side dishes. I divide sides into the ones you must have and two, the ones you can play around with.

My family has certain things they HAVE TO HAVE. Fair enough; I make them. But, as someone whose creative outlet is cooking, I also need my play time and a chance to try new things with each holiday meal.

I hope this podcast shares my enthusiasm and that you’ll try some of the recipes I shared.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. May each and every day give you a chance to savour your food and savour your life.

This blog will be recipes, recipes and more recipes! I’m going to organize them in categories so if you are looking for something in particular just scroll down our Holiday Sides Show Menu. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and since these recipes are good for any holiday where turkey is a favourite I’ll just say Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Easter while I’m at it.
