The holidays are quickly approaching, which means that people are finalizing the dishes that will sit on beautiful tablescapes with probably fewer friends and family gathered around. While COVID may prevent loved ones from attending bigger feasts, we asked South Carolina-based lifestyle blogger Megan Pinckney of Shades of Pinck to share some of her favorite recipes, using our go-to Le Creuset cookware, to make this season the yummiest, heartiest, warmest, and most full of love. Below, she shares her mouthwatering turkey jambalaya recipe that we can’t wait to try:
