    Great Hostess Gift or your own Cookbook

    This book is terrific. It has recipes for everything from turkey (including those turkey leftovers and vegetarian alternatives to turkey!) to sidedishes. The trivia/facts about the holiday are fascinating, and make great conversation starters. The games are a perfect way to keep kids busy. This book makes a perfect hostess gift or a cookbook for yourself.
