All these recipes look sooo wonderful! I am making a few for T-Day. I may ha ve to tweak some to accommodate what I can find on Maui. We now have a whole foods so that helps a lot.

Maui, one of my favorite places in the whole world.

I am thankful for Food 52. You have provided many a wonderful food experience for my family and some fun experiences trying new dishes for me. There is a real sense of community on this site, and although I don't comment often, I feel a part of it. I'll toast you all as we enjoy at least of few of the recipes here on Thanksgiving Day.

And I am so thankful to have met you, one of my first food'52ers face-to-face. Every time you laughed, along with Susan and Lynda, I felt more welcomed. Thank you for making me feel so included in a gathering where I was clearly the outsider.I love your family-centered recipes and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

Smoked salmon salad

These all look divine. I am in charge of the salad at Wednesday nights' pre-Thanksgiving extended family dinner. We are having my mother's gumbo. One of these green salads would be perfect, but which one? Boston greens with buttermilk dressing, Amanda's warm fig and blue cheese salad, or the arugula/pear/goat cheese? Any opinions?

So many dishes at our table will be from this glorious site. Thanks, Amanda and Merrill, and all your fantastic helpers, for providing so much inspiration.

I have made your fabulous mushroom soup and hope others follow my lead!

Divine selection - lovely pictures and appealing, creative recipes. Thanks for the inspiration!

I try to add a new dish every Thanksgiving. This year it will be Merrill's Mom's onion confit. It turns out to be so tasty that I may need to make more before the holiday, as I have been sneaking spoonfuls from my batch prepped and ready in the fridge!

We have plans to serve a few food52 dishes at our Thanksgiving meal, one of them that delicious sounding Tuscan Chicken Liver Pate. Really looking forward to it!
dymnyno November 19, 2010
I have made the Tuscan Chicken Liver Pate several is really delish!!

Yum! Would it be possible to file this, and the other holiday menu ideas under "menu ideas" instead of "stuff"? It'll be easier to find down the road.

I am positive I could have a wonderful ten course Thanksgiving meal with just these dishes alone. All of them look
