I’m going to let you in on a little secret. You don’t have to rush or be quick in the kitchen in order to get a lot done in a short amount of time. It doesn’t hurt, of course, but the most important part is being organized and having a solid plan.


A solid plan that has always worked for me is to choose a bunch of very easy recipes that can be prepped super quickly, thrown into the oven and baked together at the same temperature (which I tackle first). The rest of my dishes must either be made on the stovetop or assembled on the holiday, or I choose recipes that don’t require cooking/baking at all. So while I’m sautéing some onions for a soup, I already have four or five things baking in the oven.


You can easily apply that plan to the menu I’ve created below. A lot of the dishes can be baked together at 350. Most of the veggies I selected don’t need much peeling or chopping. There are no special appliances required, and I even threw in a recipe hack (I’m looking at you, honey cake!). Each recipe is easy but still delicious and special to the holiday.


I hope this menu helps each of you get through cooking and out of the kitchen in no time. Ready, set, cook!
