Recipes mentioned and additional ideas from Marc for a “Micro Thanksgiving”


A “cook’s note” from Marc: 

The recipes and ideas for flowers, and even the table setting, are some of my favorite flavors and ideas not just for Thanksgiving but throughout the winter months.  Everything comes together with everyday grocery store ingredients (flowers included!)—now that is what I call stress free!  While the recipes might not be what you typically think of for Thanksgiving, this year I am breaking with tradition and doing something fresh, modern, and unconventional—but one thing is for sure—I will have fun making memories regardless of how many people will be at my table (my husband Ryan and me!).  Happy Thanksgiving – xox, MJS
