Easy roasted turkey in 2.5 hours, perfect!

That screen shot above is from my phone–our holiday recipes are all digital so you have them in your pocket when shopping and planning. Even so I decided to print out my grocery list for you so you can go to the store and quickly buy everything you need.

Here is your shopping list for making our turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, make-ahead potatoes, biscuits, 2 pumpkin pies, and 2 pecan pies. If you are hosting a gluten free thanksgiving these recipes are likely what you will want to have control over. Your guests can bring the beverages, salads and vegetables.

And for the recipes you will find them all in our Cooking Gluten Free for the Holidays follow link to get the instant download.
There are many other recipes in the book for Thanksgiving and all the winter holidays.

(A page in the book is dedicated to dairy free substitutions if you want to adjust the recipes.)

Bubbles are a good way to start your celebration and Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are typical turkey wines.
