Even though my son is only 8 months old, I’m offering him a wide variety of foods and spices (curry!) with the hope that he’ll be an adventurous eater. But after I recently read that boys and girls prefer different foods, I realized there may be more influencing kids' food preferences than what we put on their plates. (Find more than 20 delicious recipes for dinners and lunches kids will love here.)

I’ve been an on-and-off vegetarian since I was a teenager and the one holiday I’ve always dreaded most is Thanksgiving. I mean, isn’t it all about the turkey? While I get stuck eating starchy sides and dry stuffing, everyone else gets the main attraction, plus gravy. There’s nothing like Thanksgiving to make a vegetarian feel like an outcast.

For some people, Thanksgiving dinner is all about turkey or pumpkin pie. For my sister and me, it’s all about mashed potatoes. The first thing we put on our plates is a big pile of potatoes—everything else is just garnish. When it’s time to dig into leftovers, I always heat up mashed potatoes and gravy.

The jury is out when it comes to the best dish at Thanksgiving dinner. Some people think roast turkey is the star, but for me it’s all about classic Thanksgiving sides and desserts and sweet potato casserole is at the top of my list.

Here’s why I love desserts so much: when they’re really good, they have the power to move people. Everyone remembers a really great dessert. A truly memorable meal begs for a fantastic dessert to make it complete—to give you an excuse to linger at the table just a little longer. Whether you’re hosting the whole shebang this Thanksgiving or just bringing a dish to share, these special Thanksgiving desserts will make a lasting impression (and it doesn’t hurt that they’re healthy too!)

Gravy goes on nearly everything on my plate at Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, green bean casserole, the sweet potatoes. Hey, even if some gets on my pumpkin pie I’m OK with it.
The most important thing about gravy is that it be lump-free. Perfect gravy is silky and smooth.
