There are so many wonderful reasons to enjoy the celebration of Thanksgiving from family to friends to giving thanks for everything we have but most of all, I love the food. Holiday feasts are something to be incredibly thankful for because they bring together families to experience the wonderful flavors of homemade dishes.
This year, I want to share our favorite family foods for the holidays to create your own Homemade Holiday Feast. Over the next two weeks you’ll get a peek at some of our treasured family recipes, some new ones and how we prepare them. In each recipe, you’ll probably notice my most beloved kitchen tool, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer, specifically my new KitchenAid mixer from the Artisan Design Series with a tilt head and 5 Qt Glass bowl.
While this particular mixer is new to me, KitchenAid mixers in general are not. In fact, my first KitchenAid mixer was a Christmas gift from my husband years ago and it still works as well today as it did then.
In the spirit of giving, not only will my old mixer be given a new, much needed home but KitchenAid has generously donated a brand new Artisan Stand Mixer to be given away later this month to one of you!
Before we get to the giveaway, I want to get started with those holiday recipes I mentioned, starting with bread. Whether your family likes it as a loaf or a roll, this very simple recipe from the KitchenAid cookbook is crowd pleaser. Pair it with a simple homemade honey butter and it just may take the spotlight over that platter of turkey this Thanksgiving.

Now that you see how few ingredients are involved, let me show you how to make this bread for your own family this Thanksgiving, all without any extra kitchen appliances other than a stand mixer.
Once your bread is baked and ready, be sure to whip together this simple side of honey butter to really enjoy the melt in your mouth homemade bread.
Using your stand mixer and wire whisk, beat together ingredients on speed 6 until smooth, about 1 minute.
