Moving far away from family often means that holidays tend to be on a smaller scale. While we often make time to travel for the winter festivities, Thanksgiving can be a tricky time to find affordable flights and enough vacation days to make it worth it.
Although you might not be indulging in Grandma’s famous apple pie or your dad’s sweet potato casserole, you can still enjoy the classics on a smaller scale in your own humble abode. Whether you’re enjoying the holiday on your own, with a significant other or a small gathering of friends, these recipes are perfect for a quaint get together that won’t leave your with mounds of leftovers. (Well, still enough leftovers for next-day turkey sandwiches, cause that’s the point, isn’t it?).

What do you most look forward to on Thanksgiving?
My personal favorite is cranberry sauce. I love the tangy side dish and only have it once a year! I need to find a way to incorporate it more into everyday life…
