My advice to you is to go with the all time favorite recipes such as roasted turkey, baked ham, prime rib, Cornish hen, cornbread dressing, giblet gravy, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, mashed potatoes, collard greens, candied yams, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, glazed carrots, sweet potato pie, red velvet cake, pumpkin pie, lemon pie and pecan pie.
I know that seems like a big list, but you don't have to cook everything. Just focus on those food items that your family, friends and dinner guest are most inclined to eat.
