Send us your Thanksgiving recipes, get a cookbook

October 23, 2013 

Every year, I assemble a Thanksgiving recipe section consisting of family favorites from readers like you.

Last year, Lakewood reader Michelle Galaz submitted a multi-step recipe for pumpkin cheesecake trifle. The layered dessert could be a showpiece for a dessert table — the colors are autumnal, the flavors a blend of pumpkin and decadent cheesecake.

Would you like to share your favorite Thanksgiving recipes with us?

We need your turkey day recipes for rolls, cranberry dressing, vegetable side dishes, your famous stuffing and gravy, your favorite desserts or any other recipes you’d like to submit. Have a favorite Jell-O salad? Send it. Nobody can resist a fluffy, pink Jell-O salad on Thanksgiving, right?

Send your recipes no later than Nov. 1 to: Sue Kidd, Food Editor, attn: Thanksgiving recipes, 1950 S. State St., Tacoma, WA 98405 or email to with “Thanksgiving” in the subject line. Have a question? Call me at 253-597-8270.

Readers whose recipes are published will be given a cookbook. Recipes should be family recipes or originals; no reprints from cookbooks unless the recipe has been significantly altered. Submissions may be published in any form.
