“Here is my recipe for the perfect sushi rice. You can eat this alone or roll into your favorite sushi roll with ingredients of choice. I use strips of carrots, cucumbers and slices of avocado. You can adjust the amount of vinegar in this recipe to suit your taste.”
If you’re looking for a way to repurpose your turkey beyond round two at the buffet, might I suggest a (slightly over the top) Kentucky “Hot Brown”? Normally I make this open-faced sandwich as part of my Derby day spread, but the Southern specialty also makes a perfect reprieve from Thanksgiving casserole overkill.
One pretty tea towel: this is the simplest, easiest gift for a cook who loves her kitchen. There’s a wealth of beautiful tea towels, napkins, and table linens in today’s design-saturated world, so choosing just a handful of favorites was hard. We managed to narrow it down to a glam tea towel calendar, neon-trimmed napkins, and a splurgy tablecloth to warm up the kitchen in wintertime.
With the luxury of this long weekend stretching before me, I’m thinking of settling in at my kitchen table and getting started on a few projects for the holidays. Special homemade gifts like bottles of infused liquor and small tins of flavored salt take a little extra time to reach delectable perfection, and for this very reason, they’re always some of my favorite things to wrap up and give to friends. Care to join me?
