Don’t Forget: Thanksgiving Reminders

Thanksgiving is 3 days away! If you want to avoid a 4 a.m. wake-up call alongside your turkey, dressing and sweet potato cupcakes, a little planning and preparation can go a long way. We’ve got the digital equivalent of the string-around-the-finger — here’s what you can and should do ahead of time to make Turkey […]

Pix Potluck: A Beautiful Apple Pie

Got your desserts all planned for Thursday? At this point in the game, we hope you’ve at least narrowed down the options. Amy Uhl Ortega posted this photo of her beautiful apple pie to our Facebook page, and we couldn’t resist sharing. It looks almost too good to eat! Almost. While she didn’t post the recipe […]

Brunch All Weekend

Guessing: Gadgets — Thanksgiving Edition

We came across this very interesting-looking device in our search for all things Thanksgiving. They don’t make ’em like they used to, folks. Any ideas what this beauty is? If you nail it, please claim your Cooking Channel bragging rights. ***UPDATE:  Karen Smith McDonald correctly guessed that this is actually an old PIE RACK. But we loved all of the […]

Cranberryless Sauce

Even non-foodies are passionate about their Thanksgiving foods. Would you prefer white meat or dark? Do you call it stuffing or dressing? Is ambrosia salad actually food?

Mad for Pizza on Tonight’s Premiere of United Tastes of America

What makes pizza so special? It must be the thin, crispy crust. (No? You prefer deep-dish, Chicago-style?) Then it has to be the cheesy topping. (Except for that fantastic version you had with just olive oil and fresh mushrooms…)    A true American staple, pizza is the comfort food of millions. Its fanatics range from junk-food junkies to haute-cuisine […]

Matt’s Chipotle Sweet-Potato Spoon Bread

I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks the best part of Thanksgiving is the sides. While I’m definitely a turkey lover (dark meat, please), it’s that plateful of savory stuffing, mashed potatoes, greens in the form of beans or brussels sprouts and the sweet tang of cranberries or chutney that really gets me going. […]

Kelsey’s Travel Tips for Food People

My husband and I like to plan a big trip that we can look forward to every year. This year our destination was Spain and the country did not disappoint! We ate our way though Granada, Sevilla, and Barcelona. We embraced the sprit of tapas bars and small plates and ate more seafood than we […]
