Recipes to Try for Canadian Thanksgiving

The start of fall can sometimes be depressing. We have to pack away our shorts, sandals, and floral crowns for another year. Our sadness quickly disappears because once it officially turns to autumn, we know that we have Thanksgiving to look forward to. That means lots of turkey, gravy, and pumpkin, and all of the pie that we can get our hands on. What’s sad about that? If you’re looking for some fresh inspiration for your Thanksgiving dinner, we’ve rounded up some mouth-watering recipes from our favorite Canadian food bloggers.
