It wouldn’t be a Waxing Kara Thanksgiving Feast if everything on the menu didn’t feature Eastern Shore Honey! Honey is the perfect way to tie all the bits of your Thanksgiving Feast together, it’s equally fantastic in both sweet and savory dishes, giving richness to anything you can concoct.
I don’t know about you but Thanksgiving is my very favorite holiday. It always has been. Not sure if it’s the rich origins or it’s just simply the Thanksgiving dishes.
To celebrate autumn and Thanksgiving, we share our favorite bee-inspired dishes. Over the years we have collected so many recipes for this holiday that you will be jumping from blog to blog to collect our most cherished recipes. I am focused on traditional thanksgiving eats for the sake of streamlining this blog, but you could check out our Traditional Easter Dinner or our Rosh Hashanah Dinner Ideas.
