Food writer Maggie Heyn Richardson talks her go-to Thanksgiving dishes and recipes

Richardson is a longtime contributor to 225 and inRegister magazine, and she’s often the person we turn to for ideas on cooking for the family around the holidays.

Curious for a glimpse at her own plans for this year, inRegister sat down with Richardson to learn more. Read on for the full story.
