Can you believe the holiday season is already upon is? I guess when you’re working hard and having fun, time passes by in the blink of an eye. We can all agree the best part about the holidays is time spent with loved ones… A close second? The delicious food! And there’s no denying that Thanksgiving wins the Best Holiday Food prize.
Even though we’d like to invite everyone to Reach HQ to indulge in all the tasty Thanksgiving dishes, we can’t bring ourselves to steal you away from your family. So instead, we dug through the Reach family recipe book and picked out one of Grandma’s favorite homemade recipes to share. Grab a pen or take a screenshot so you can make it this year and maybe even add it to your Thanksgiving tradition for years to come!
