Traditional Thanksgiving gets an upgrade via flavorful ingredients that boost the holiday classics
Traditional Thanksgiving with a twist: Roast Turkey with Sage and Garlic Butter

Pearl Onion and Celery Stuffing with Juniper and Garlic
Juniper berries give this stuffing a savory, woodsy note.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apples
This sweet potato dish strikes a perfect balance between sweet, tart, and savory. Rather than adding marshmallows for sweetness, we used apples and maple syrup.
Mascarpone Chive Mashed Potatoes
The secret to fluffy mashed potatoes is to let them dry out on very low heat before mashing.
