Former Top Chef finalist and The Chew co-host Carla Hall spoke to Enstars about tips for Thanksgiving preparations, recipes and her favorite Thanksgiving treats growing up.

Carla Hall Recipes for Thanksgiving

Speaking of her favorite Thanksgiving treats as a child, Hall swore by her grandmothers mac and cheese.

"As a child one of my favorite thing to have was my grandmother's macaroni and cheese, my grandmother made it all the time, we had it for Sunday suppers and we had it forThanksgiving," she said.

She went on to tell Enstars about how in the South, where she lived, the Thanksgiving spread featured a whole lot special dishes from green bean casserole and collard greens to candied sweet potatoes and "your dressing, your ham, your turkey." They also used to have around 10 desserts at Hall's home.

Hall whipped up dishes that weren't time-consuming and would be ideal for people who are busy and needed to quickly put things on the table for Thanksgiving dinner.

"I am going to work through them to tell you how you can make them to fit into a schedule because a lot of times just getting the food on the table at one time can be a problem," she said.
