The Best (Maybe Weirdest)Thanksgiving Recipes We Found On Pinterest

Pinterest is perfect for people who are really into categorizing, because you can thematically curate your photographic collections of…well pretty much anything. But it’s also good for people who are into low-to-no pressure. A refuge from relationship statuses and check-ins and grammatically frustrated comments—Pinterest doesn’t really encourage anything besides excessive scrolling. Most feel compelled to do little else besides click around and look at cool stuff when visiting the site. (While we’re on the topic, are you following us on Pinterest?)

Lately we’ve been excessively scrolling through the site looking for some Thanksgiving recipe inspiration. If there’s one thing (besides decorating tips) that’s Pinterest is good for, it’s recipes.

There’s a ton of pressure around this time to make meals that everyone will enjoy, and that’s not always easy. As expected, Pinterest did not let us down and we found some really great stuff. Thanks, Pinterest, for being so helpful and chill. We’re all super grateful for your virtual existence.

In a tribute to the glorious recipes we found Pinterest, we thought we’d compile some of the ideas we found. Not all of them included recipes (okay none) so we came up with some suggestions for you to follow when it comes to making these soon-to-be-favorite Thanksgiving dishes.
