Thanksgiving Recipes - Traditional Southern Hunt Country Menu


We're counting down to turkey day!

How about a menu today for a real old fashioned, hunt country Thanksgiving dinner that's steeped in southern style ? It's very easy to make but looks extravagant and lavish.

There's still time for me to get many of these recipes on this blog before Thanksgiving but if you're in a hurry, you can order our online magazine called Karla's Cooking Made Easy and get them asap.

Our on line magazine has other interesting things in it, too, like information about Green Friday - Virginia's answer to Black Friday when everyone packs the shopping malls. There's a big batch of yummy cookie recipes to jump start you on holiday baking and more.

In the mean time, here's an absolutely scrumptious menu for Thanksgiving!
