With Thanksgiving just a few short days away, now is the time to lock in your side dishes for this years feast. Of course, sides like cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole are a Thanksgiving staple. But traditional doesn't have to mean ordinary. This year, surprise your friends and family with simple twists on classic dishes. These recipes are so delicious, you'll be lucky if there's any leftover!

Grand Marnier Cranberry Sauce


Cranberry sauce is arguably the red-headed step-sibling of Thanksgiving. In many a home, it's an afterthought. One of those, "oh yeah I guess we need that because it's tradition," sides. Whether you're a fan of homemade or jellied, this Grand Marnier cranberry sauce is sure to be the talk of the table. A splash of Grand Marnier balances the tart cranberries, which are cooked with orange juice and zest, to create a smooth, sweet finish.

This triple chocolate pumpkin pie is a party on your plate that is silky smooth, bordering on sinful, and oh-so easy to make.
