  1. This is an absolutely terrific list – I love that every recipe is just five ingredients! I’ve been asked to host my family’s Thanksgiving celebration this year, and I definitely know from experience that choosing several recipes that are uber-simple (but still show-stoppingly delicious) is a true key to hostess sanity! Five ingredients?!? Game on! Thanks a million for featuring our Browned Butter Spaghetti Squash … and for giving me so many great recipe ideas to make my life a leeeeeetle easier this Thanksgiving!
