What are you making for Thanksgiving?

I don't know about you all, but Thanksgiving with our family is a traditional affair. No contemporary new recipes are acceptable. My dad is obstinate about preferring canned whole-berry cranberry sauce (it took years to switch him to that from the jellied, shaped-like-the-can kind) to any fancy molds or chutneys. And, frankly, I'm looking forward to the sweet potatoes with crushed pineapple, topped with marshmallows (is there even a real recipe for this or does everyone just sort of throw this together?)!

However, I do try to sneak in some new quality recipes with just a twist on the old. I've been searching for recipes on the web, and have only a few I've been seeking. Does anyone have a recipe for really good, garlic mashed potatoes? I wanted to get Alton Brown's from his "Good Eats" show, where he simmered the garlic in half&half, but it's not on the TVFN site anymore. (Why can't they archive their recipes?)

Anyway, I thought it would be nice for people to post some family recipes, or post links to copyrighted material if they like the particular recipe. Below is a link to David Rosengarten's favorite pecan pie recipe, which we'll be making this year.

I'm looking forward to seeing others' ideas. Rachel
