We all love classic bread pudding; it's cozy, comforting, and ideal for holiday dinners and brunches. Add to that the season's most beloved ingredient (pumpkin) and it only gets better. But wait, we're not done yet! We're paying homage to Thanksgivukkah by adding rich, eggy challah and tart cranberries to the mix. All in all, it's a great way to use up leftover challah from the holiday feast. Watch the video to see how it's made, then print out the recipe.
You've grilled, braised, or roasted up a beauty of a bird, but now what? While carving a turkey might seem daunting the first go-round, all it takes is a little know-how and practice (it gets easier every time!) to carve and plate a turkey worthy of centerpiece status.
P.S. Don't forget to show off the intact bird before you dig in, but carve it up in the kitchen (rather than table-side) to avoid prying eyes, all the pressure, and contain any potential mess.
Every few months, I host a book club in my home, and find it a lovely occasion to try out a new cocktail. This time around, I couldn't wait to incorporate ingredients that evoke the holidays, like cranberries and the zesty Italian after-dinner favorite, limoncello.
This three-ingredient sipper couldn't be easier to pull together; it simply calls for seltzer, limoncello, and cranberry juice — no shaker required. Yet the payoff is in spades: "What went into this? Can I have the recipe?" friends asked me throughout the night. I assured them that even the most bar-challenged could make this drink. For a pretty garnish that's a hint of what's to come, toss in a few fresh cranberries, too. Keep reading for the recipe.
It's arguably the standout dish at Thanksgiving, yet at the same time shrouded in ambiguity. What's the proper way to refer to it: stuffing or dressing? Is there even a distinction?
Some believe that if it's cooked inside a roast, it should be dubbed stuffing; if it's prepared outside the bird, then the proper name for it is dressing. But go south of the Mason-Dixon line, and cooks will call it dressing, regardless of its preparation, citing the term "stuffing" as an unpleasant-sounding word. Likewise, northern states and New Englanders generally refer to the dish as stuffing across the board.
So, much like the soda-pop debate, whether you term that beloved side of seasoned starch and vegetables stuffing or dressing is really a matter of where you're eating. But we can all call it one thing for sure: delicious.
If you're anything like us, your entire day revolves around one thing and one thing only: food. It's the start to your day, the welcome break at work, and the cap to a great evening. So if there's anything to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, it's the snacks, the sweets, and everything in between. Ahead, we're breaking down why we're grateful for the food that sustains us — in GIFs, of course.
Because Food Will Never Ever Judge You
Because It Gives You Something to Talk About When It Gets Awkward
Because It Tastes Good Morning, Day, or Night
