First I must make a shocking confession; I am not a gravy lover. It's usually the dish I let pass me by at Thanksgiving. Gravy, and anything squash. None for me, thanks. Perhaps my lack of appreciation for this beloved side dish is because I have never had awesome gravy?

Since I admittedly have not tried a lot of gravy, I am taking the words of other gravy lovers who say these recipes are "awesome." Check them out, and see what you think.

Yes, I will be a big kid this year and try the gravy on Thanksgiving. I am tired of people telling me I am missing out on one of the most important parts of the meal.
