We did it! We made a small Thanksgiving dinner that serves 4-6 people. Or, 4 people with leftovers. Or, 6 people with no leftovers. Tons of fridge space! Basically, it’s not a meal for 8-20. And that makes me so happy. Here’s our happy little plate: But we can totally take it one step at a time. Shall we start with salad first? This Fall
If you’re hosting a Thanksgiving feast and no one offered to bring the pie, I’m so sorry. But! I have you covered. We’re going to give everyone their pumpkin fix with this no-cook, pull-together-in-15-minutes pumpkin mousse. And for someone who is on the fence about pumpkin (sorry, it’s me), I will attest to the extreme deliciousness of this mousse. It’s airy, sweet, fluffy, and so
This post is lovingly sponsored by one of my very favorite companies to work with–Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. I was compensated by Nielsen-Massey for my time in developing this recipe and post. As always, all opinions are my own. And I really do love their products. We made it! We’re at the final side dish for our small Thanksgiving gathering! All that’s left is dessert, for which
Or, as I like to call it: my favorite everything salad. Because it has all my favorite things! Juicy fall pears, tangy bleu cheese, and salty roasted hazelnuts. But, first let’s discuss something very important. The classic vinaigrette recipe. You know it by heart: the one with red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and a touch of Dijon? Well, here’s the thing: I’ve never
This is the best recipe I got. It’s all here, folks. I may turn out the lights on this blog after sharing this. I saved this recipe for years to put in my second cookbook. There’s a ‘Thanksgiving for Two’ feast in the book, and this cornbread dressing is in it, albeit in a small pan for two. Here, I doubled it to serve 4-6 for
Welcome to the second-only recipe using a slow cooker on this site! You didn’t miss my first one, Creme Brûlée in the Slow Cooker, did you? Because that would be sad. So, I love this cranberry butter for a few reasons. One: using the slow cooker is hands-off Turkey Day. Two: it’s so dang easy, your drunk uncle could make it. Three: it has many uses!
I’m interrupting your regularly scheduled Thanksgiving recipes for a holiday cookie recipe. Please forgive. Or, as I like to call these cookies: ooey gooey chewy chai bars. Think of this as the biggest slap in your face of chai ever. You know, if a slap in the face was pleasurable. I am a complete chai freak. I don’t drink coffee much, so chai is my
The business of making a starch melt in your mouth is actually quite simple. The only technique required is roasting in the oven with butter. A long time ago, we stopped drizzling things with melted butter before roasting in the oven. Also a long time ago, oven fries died. I’m not sure when oil became the only acceptable thing with which to roast, but its
