Almost everyone has their favorites must-haves for Thanksgiving, but if you’re interested to add something new to your table, take a look at AllRecipes Thanksgiving for ideas.  The GRCC Library culinary collection has several books on cooking game – and others on holiday cooking – (okay mostly desserts :>).  Check them out before heading home from campus.  Like the idea of cooking, but not necessarily the actual work?  Enjoy these menus from several historical menu collections from the Culinary Arts Subject Guide.
