Carol’s Thanksgiving & Christmas Recipes

My favorite memories growing up are of these two holidays! My momma always makes a giant turkey and enough side dishes to feed an army. Below you’ll find a few Quick Family Recipes, that will make your holidays super easy. Especially if you don’t have time or don’t want to cook an entire turkey, but still want the taste of it! There’s also a few recipes that would make the perfect hostess gift or a dish to wow your friends and family at the next party!

All of these Quick Family Recipes are easy to make and taste tested and approved by your friends Ellis and Tyler from Z88.3 Mornings. Join in on the fun every Wednesday morning around 7:12ish as we continue to test and share new recipes together!
