It’s 5 o’clock, and you’re leaving the office in search of some post-work libations and snacks before dinner. You could go the traditional happy hour route — where you’re limited to a few drinks and small bites within a short window of time — or you could up the ante and visit a Japanese izakaya.
If you’re giving nonperishables to a food pantry this year, skip the sodium-packed soups and focus on nutrient-dense foods, hunger advocates say. Some of them may be cheaper, too.
After Thanksgiving dinner is over, it is nice to send guests home with a little treat that’s not leftover turkey or a mason jar of mushroom gravy. Homemade pumpkin caramels make great bite-sized party favors that truly shine with the flavors of fall. Kate Williams will show you how to make them at home.
This is hands-down one of my favorite autumn desserts, and I make it as soon as fragrant pears arrive in the market. It’s a great addition to your Thanksgiving dessert buffet!
Just because you (or your guests) are gluten-free doesn’t mean you don’t get to enjoy all the classic Thanksgiving dishes, especially stuffing. Try this one, you won’t even know the difference.
If you love cornbread, then you are going to love this colorful and scrumptious stuffing, perfect alongside a BBQ turkey. Fresh herbs and sautéed peppers balance the richness of this dish.
Crunchy, colorful, seasonal, and fresh. This gorgeous salad is a great way to balance the rich and heavy dishes on your Thanksgiving table.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Dried Cranberries, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Orange Zest for Thanksgiving
Even if you think you don’t like Brussels sprouts, give this dish a try. It has a bit of everything: tangy, sweet, salty, bitter, and savory. You are welcome.
Forget about the canned-shaped cranberry gel that graced your childhood table, this tart-sweet compote is not only amazingly delicious, it’s amazingly simple to throw together at the last minute.
The American Beverage Association poured tons of cash into the effort to defeat the penny-per-ounce sugary-drink tax. But the effort to pass the tax also got cash infusions from some big-name donors.
Step up your game for Halloween this year with an array of eerie, menacing treats! Ghastly (but adorable) meringue ghosts and rich chocolate cupcakes slathered with “dirt” and “slimy” (chewy, sweet) worms will appease everyones sweet-tooth. And savory, devilish delights like butternut mummy tarts, cheesy breadstick “bones,” deviled egg eyeballs and black spiders, and a vat of ghoulish guacamole will keep the party going long after the sun goes down. Bwah hahaha!
Decadent and rich, these chocolate cupcakes get grossed-up for Halloween with a layer of cookie “dirt” and colorful chewy worms. They are disgustingly delicious!
