Must-Follow Mondays: Thanksgiving Bloggers
Thanksgiving is the day when even people who hate to cook pull out all the stops for the big meal. And figuring out what to put on your menu can be downright daunting. But never fear, BlogHer’s food bloggers (as usual) have plenty of brilliant ideas to share with us. Here are five bloggers who are going all-out with their Thanksgiving coverage.
The Speckled Palate
Erin from The Speckled Palate kicked off her Thanksgiving coverage with farm-to-fork updates of all the favorites. We’re seriously inspired by her all-fresh version of Green Bean Casserole, which is also dairy-free. Her Drunken Cranberry Sauce is even fresher—it’s laced with a couple of tablespoons of spiced rum.

Ashley from Cooking Monster Cooking is hosting two Thanksgiving feasts—one of which is entirely gluten-free. You can call her crazy (I certainly would), but she has a lot of tips and tricks for pulling it off, which she culls from last year's post Thanksgiving Menu Preparations. Both of her menus this year have especially fabulous side dishes, such as Easy Roasted Asparagus With Parmesan, Creamy Mashed Cauliflower and Fresh Herb Dinner Rolls.

Alissa from Girl Makes Food has a mission to make healthful, nutritious food that’s easy to prepare -- and tastes good, too. Her Easy Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu delivers on all counts, with sweet potato casserole, green beans and even vegetarian gravy done four ways (including one gluten-free option). Alissa even features a Gluten-Free Stuffing that’s vegan too.
