Happy thanksgiving to all our American readers! It’s been a week of food posts for Topics of the World, and to finish off here is an American food blog, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Pinch my Salt author Nicole has been preparing for thanksgiving with a series of holiday recipes. Creamy mashed potatoes, curried chicken salad and pumpkin spice cake are just some of the mouth-watering dishes.

Of course there are many more recipes and they all look very good. Nicole got her inspiration to cook from time she spent living in Sicily and the odd Sicilian recipe sneaks in there too.

For the rest us who are not celebrating Thanksgiving but would like to know more about it, History.com explains all about Thanksgiving history and traditions.
