QI am looking for some holiday recipes that can be made ahead of time -- either completely ready a day or so ahead, or partially prepared -- to cut down on the heavy load of Thanksgiving Day!

- Mary


Try these three make-ahead recipes and start your Thanksgiving Day feeling thankful for more time with your guests. They'll rave about the French Herbed Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes, a Savory Broccoli-Corn Casserole, and Sweet Potatoes with Sugared Pecans. Just bake a turkey or ham, get some help (see below!), and enjoy yourself.

Friends and family love to contribute. Someone could bring rolls or bread, and a guest who loves to bake could bring pumpkin pies or another dessert. Grandma could bring her famous cranberry sauce, or a relish tray with olives and an assortment of pickled vegetables. Everyone will be thankful for the abundant feast.

Enjoy your holiday!
