Here's The Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu Based On The Kardashians' Recipes

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching. On Thursday this week, we'll all be centered around a table, filled with family and friends, and thinking to ourselves, “Eh… this food could be better.”

I love my family, but Thanksgiving is a trial of errors — we've forgotten to thaw out the 21-pound turkey, we've burnt the pudding for the chocolate pies exactly four times and every year, without fail, we hear, “Oh, my god, I forgot to put the rolls in the oven,” halfway through dinner.

Our cranberry sauce? It is can-shaped.

Fortunately, the Kardashians have some tricks to make Thanksgiving not become an epic fail. We're thankful for that.

Kourtney Kardashian posted a really solid recipe for cranberry sauce. An added bonus? It takes about 15 minutes to make.

Her recipe is as follows:


1 cup water

1 cup organic brown sugar

12 ounces of fresh organic cranberries

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated organic orange zest


1. Bring the water and organic brown sugar to a boil, stirring occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved.

2. Add fresh organic cranberries and bring to a simmer, stirring until berries burst, for 10 to 12 minutes.

3. Mix in organic orange zest, then cool.

4. Refrigerate until needed (will last 2 days).

Meanwhile, Khloé isn't such a wiz in the kitchen. She finally admitted she has no idea how to make stuffing, writing,

I've never made stuffing before but someone asked about it, which means now I have to make it! I just don't really get stuffing. I mean why would I eat wet, stale bread? LOL. All of the recipes I Googled have bacon in them though so, since I don't eat pork, I'm going to have to do some tweaks. So I don't know how it's going to turn out!

I mean, when you have a show called “Revenge Body” coming out, “wet, stale bread” probably isn't on your menu. In fact, at least she's giving it a go…

Kendall is under the impression that it may be a waste of time to make a traditional dinner so she has some sushi recommendations instead.

Thankfully, Kylie Jenner is picking up the slack of her sisters by coming through with some CANDIED YAMS, YA'LL. She said,

I love to cook, and I'm going to start showing you guys how I make some of my favorite dishes.

Of course, no Thanksgiving is complete without the dishes looking fucking flawless. It is the one time of the year I get to prove to my family that yes, I do have it together and not only that, but I can totally do my hair, too.

When You Realize You'll Never Look Like Kylie Jenner

Kim Kardashian’s friend Jen Atkin showed us how to get her perfect curls. She said the breakdown is as follows:

Davines Volu Hair Mist – $36

For Kim's soft textured waves look, first prep damp hair with Davines Volume hair mist, starting from the roots to the ends.

Dyson Hairdryer – $400

Blow-dry smooth, using Dyson blow dryer and a GHD round brush.

Hot Tools Curling Iron – $40

Curl hair using the Hot Tools curling iron, leaving the last 2″ of hair out of the iron. This will give you a more casual, textured look.
Ouai Texturizing Spray – $26

Spray Ouai texturizer from the roots to the ends for added body and volume.

Ouai Finishing Crème – $24

Finally, apply Ouai finishing cream to the ends to hold the curls in place.

If only we could be a part of this family's celebration instead of our own this Thanksgiving.
