Thanksgiving Recipes in America

This Thanksgiving, as you gather with family and friends, show your gratitude by making your own contribution to the family table. If you are in Canada or in other parts of the world where Thanksgiving is not celebrated in November, these recipes can be a neat addition to any Sabbath dinner or other holiday celebration. If you do make something, please show us by taking a photo of your dish and e-mailing it to As always, have an adult nearby to supervise. Happy Thanksgiving and happy cooking!

Easy Ambrosia Dessert

4 bananas, sliced

2 cans pineapple chunks, drained

1 7-ounce package flaked coconut

Maraschino cherries (as much as you like, or you can leave them out)
