Thanksgiving is not an observed holiday in Dominican Republic, but that doesn't mean it hasn't influenced this country who acknowledges it is as beautiful American custom to celebrate a day of being thankful and enjoying a special dinner with the family. It is an ordinary work and school day here and that makes it slightly difficult for Americans who want to continue with the custom in this country. Many of us do get to celebrate it regardless and manage either to bake a turkey with all the sidings or at least a pumpkin pie to observe the holiday.
Living here has made my family and I value what really is important, and that is to always give thanks together as a family for dinner regardless of country, day, or what you have set on the table. It is also nice to remember while we are blessed to pray for those who have difficulty getting the daily bread.
At home we like traditional American side dishes and a Latin flavored baked turkey. A "must have" in our table are corn pudding, biscuits and cornbread dressing accompanied by fresh vegetables. For dessert usually an apple pie, a tres leches cake or bread pudding. The following recipes are suggestions for Thanksgiving Day, for more recipes look here. Finally, this year I did all my holiday baking in advance to give you a variety of cakes to choose from.

Have one happy and blessed day in unity with your family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving!
