Are you hosting or attending a Friendsgiving this weekend? Maybe you're pumped about the upcoming food-focused festivity, or maybe you're worried about what to make. Whatever the case may be, the fact still remains that a dish (or several) will need to be prepared. And even if you aren't a gourmet recipe-making goddess, a bowl of saran-wrapped Idaho Spuds isn't exactly going to do the trick either.
So when time is of the essence, and creative ideas are scarce, where's a Friendsgiving goer to turn? To Alexandra Shytsman's Friendsgiving, naturally. Shytsman's cookbook serves up simple yet trendy twists on Thanksgiving dish classics that are sure to impress your work wife, college roomie, and high school bestie-filled gathering. Ahead we've included three of her best — from charred balsamic Brussels to a sweet potato tahini dip — to get you started.
