Three Must-Reads in Our November Issue

Southern Living November IssueMust I really limit it to three?

I’m so excited about our November issue—we’ve loaded it with everything you need to celebrate Thanksgiving in true Southern style. I’ve dog-eared some of my favorite pages to help me figure out what I’m cooking this year, and since I’m still in the process of decorating my house I also plan on ordering up some of the entertaining essentials our editors curated from across the region.  (I’ll be mining the SL Pinterest boards too; you’ll find hundreds more pics there to spark all kinds of holiday ideas.)

Read on to see the three things you don’t want to miss from the November issue:

The Black Bottom Pumpkin Pie: It’s impossible to choose a favorite recipe from our “Most Southern Thanksgiving Ever,” but if I had to make just one thing from this issue it would be this. When our Test Kitchen concocts something that instructs us to “sprinkle candy bars over chocolate mixture” you know it’s going to be over-the-top awesome.

50 Reasons We’re Thankful To Be Southern: Our Travel team scoured the region to sum up the South’s latest cultural bragging rights. Among the 50 ways we’re counting our blessings, check out Mockingbird Domestics, a new online collective of more than 50 artisans; learn about the Southern food revolution in Miami (and keep an eye out for Swine Southern Table); or be one of the first to know about the location of the premier Southern property for Hemingway Hotels & Resorts.

    Greetings, I do believe your blog could be having web browser compatibility problems.

    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks
    fine however, when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful blog!

    I bought the subscrisption of Southern Living magazine thru my nook and was leary. Other magazines were hard to follow and I eventually cancelled them. I must say, Southern Living on the nook is just as vibrant and enjoyable as the print publication; and honestly more so. I love all the additional features it offers as well (such as being able to jump to another page/link or being able to get more detailed info on a subject). Thank you so very much for bringing a wonderful publication to life!

    Best issue this year! Wonder how many of those Bavaria bundt cake pans were bought this week because of that gorgeous cover? I bought one online myself tonight so that I could make the Brown Sugar Bourbon cake for Thanksgiving.
