Sure, Rachael whips up some DELISH treats for us in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. But what does she serve her own family on the big day?

You're about to find out!

With Thanksgiving just TWO DAYS AWAY, Rach shared exactly what she makes her family on Thanksgiving — a list that includes recipes her mom made for her back in the day! So sweet, right?

Get all 9 recipes — including two alternatives to cranberry sauce (let's face it, not everyone loves it!) — below!

1. Whiskey-Brined Spatchcock Turkey
As Rach says, always be brining.
