By Emily Tao //

Macaroni and Cheese

Mac and cheese is a great side dish that everyone loves. There are so many different ways to make it, so don’t feel wary in spicing up this recipe to your own liking. Ditch the boxed Kraft mac and cheese for this recipe instead.

Mashed Potatoes

A classic. One of my favorite things when I go to Thanksgiving dinners is how nobody coordinates what they bring, so at my family dinners, there are usually at least three different variations of mashed potatoes. This is never a bad thing, so even if you think someone else may be in charge of this side dish this year, try out this classic recipe for some easy creamy mashed potatoes!



A lot of foods brought to the table during Thanksgiving are very filling, so it can be a brilliant idea to contribute something a little lighter, and a good way to do this is by bringing a salad to your next Friendsgiving. This salad screams fall with the nuts, apples, and pomegranate, making it the perfect salad to show off to your friends!

Pumpkin Bars

Finishing off a big Friendsgiving meal wouldn’t be complete without some dessert. These pumpkin bars are a fun and festive fall dessert. The cream cheese frosting really seals the deal, providing the perfect combination of sweet and savory in a dessert.
