Our Favorite Thanksgiving Magazine Covers

Thanksgiving Magazine Covers Favorite Covers Holiday Food Cooking MagazinesCan’t wait for turkey? Prefer pecan pie instead? We’ll whet your appetite for the Thanksgiving feast by counting down our favorite November food magazine covers.

By now, most of you are either busy preparing the Thanksgiving meal or traveling to gather with family and friends around one (or maybe several). Even as you count your many blessings or treasure time spent with loved ones, the holiday feast typically takes center stage; after all, it’s generally what gathers us all together in the first place.

So as you cook and bake or fly the friendly skies to your holiday destination, we thought we’d help get you in the spirit—of the Thanksgiving feast anyway—with our six favorite November cooking magazine covers.

Southern Living: Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be complete without a pecan pie, but this creation takes it new a new level. Practically a work of art, this Salted Caramel-Chocolate Pecan Pie is definitely worthy of the November cover and would be a welcome addition to any table.

EatingWell: Whole or jellied, cranberries usually play second fiddle to the turkey and dressing that are the focal point of the Thanksgiving spread, so it’s nice to see them get their due on this simple, yet elegant November/December cover.

Martha Stewart Living: Martha’s covers always have a flair for the artistic, and for the carved turkey on the November cover, it’s is all about the presentation. She suggests fanning out the cut pieces of meat, garnishing with fruits and herbs, and serving on a pretty platter.

Bon Appetit: Now this is a sight we like to see on Thanksgiving: the presentation of the centerpiece of the holiday meal. This November cover celebrates a holiday moment that’s bound to be repeated again and again in homes across the country, but it never gets old.

Taste of the South: Yes, the turkey is important, but let’s also give thanks for the delicious sides that will be served on plenty of Southern tables this year. Favorites like Green Bean Casserole, Cornbread Dressing, and Sweet Potato Casserole are just as beloved as the turkey—and this cover recognizes that.

Cooking With Paula Deen: The next best thing to turkey and all the trimmings has to be the dessert selection, and this cover features three drool-worthy options—Salted Caramel Pumpkin Pie, Buttermilk Pie with Glazed Cranberries, and Chocolate Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Topping.
