Its my first time to celebrate thanksgiving here in the United States and I am so excited about it. I am from the Philippines and most of cousins and relatives here in the states are Filipino-Americans and have been celebrating this event yearly. They already prepared some turkeys to be roated on that day but am thinking of cooking something that would still be apt for the celebration. Can you recommend of a recipe for thanksgiving apart from roasted turkey?

You have to have sweet potatoes or yams.....that is part of the tradition! Make sure you put marshmallows on the top until it's brown. Scalloped corn is another favorite!

I actually buy canned yams....then put them in a casserole dish and bake them with a little butter and brown sugar on them like a forth of a cup butter or margarine and about a forth of a cup brown sugar so it makes a sweet sauce. Then bake them for about 45 minutes then put marshmallows on top. and return it to the oven until the marshmallows are toasty and brown. The scalloped corn you might want to look up on the internet as I just do my own thing using my own made up recipe. Good luck!

Anything with Pumpkin works. Apples too. Pecan pies. Desserts are always wonderful. Cranberry stuffing. well dude there's a lot actually. I'd do a simple internet search. and you'll find a ton of stuff.

I know how you feel being in the land of honey for the first time thuscelebrating the Thanksgiving Day also for the first time. Why don't you prepare recipes with a Pinoy twist aside from the roasted Turkey that Americans usually prepare? May I suggest you do the traditional (may be not historical) Thanksgiving dishes such as Coconut-Crusted Camaron Rebosado, Whole Wheat Pandesal, Cranberry or traditional Papaya Achara, Sweet Potato Buco Pie, Longganisa Cornbread Stuffing or, Baby Green Beans with Cashews. Chicken adobo is a must! What do you think? Happy Thanksgiving to all of you there in the USA!

In my country only few people or maybe none because we just don’t have much turkey’s here hehe.. Anyway, hams are good here every Thanks Giving and people is making sure they have it during dinner. My family love to mix things, my mother would cook the traditional dinner and my brother likes to try some new good stuff to enjoy. I practically don’t do anything hehe… I’ve tried making some salads before but I went badly so I never tried again but we always have salads or dessert to finish it.

You could try this for dessert: 1 (9 inch) pie shell ,1 cup white sugar 1 cup light corn syrup ,1/2 cup butter 4 eggs, beaten ,1/4 cup bourbon 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ,1/4 teaspoon salt 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips ,1 cup chopped pecans Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees F). In a small saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter or margarine. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter or margarine melts and sugar dissolves. Cool slightly. In a large bowl combine eggs, bourbon, vanilla, and salt. Mix well. Slowly pour sugar mixture into egg mixture, whisking constantly. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Pour mixture into pie shell. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until set and golden. May be served warm or chilled.

Cook broccoli and drain. 3. Put broccoli in a 2-1/2 quart casserole dish. 4. Add undiluted soups and pepper to taste. 5. Mix well. 6. Prepare stuffing according to package directions. 7. Stir stuffing into the broccoli mixture. 8. Top with grated cheese. 9. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes.
