If the Southern Living Test Kitchen hosted Thanksgiving, it would look like this: a crowd-pleasing spread of our favorite family recipes (like Aunt Grace’s Famous Cornbread Dressing, page 88), a few daring new additions (including Pumpkin-Spice Magic Cake, page 118), and almost everything make-ahead. We’d invite family, friends, and friends who feel like family. And there would be pie—lots of pie (see “Old Faithfuls,” page 106). From cooking shortcuts to easy table settings, our editors have dedicated this entire issue to helping you prep for November 22 so you can enjoy the day too. We have many reasons to feel grateful this year, and on these pages, we’re celebrating them all. Happy Thanksgiving!
