Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season has officially begun, pulling in its wake parties and gatherings galore. These present many opportunities to say thank you to an array of good people: your boss, your doctor, your child’s caretaker or teacher, a neighbor. Here are a few gifts we love that don’t cost too much and are easy to pack when traveling, and that all still say thank you in a thoughtful way.
Lazy mornings. Extra cups of coffee. Blankets on the couch. Pajamas until noon. Isn’t this what long holiday weekends are all about? Well, these things and brunch, of course. This weekend you have a little extra time to make apple fritters or a batch of pumpkin cinnamon rolls, so go for it!
Here are 20 of our absolute favorite brunch recipes, from make-ahead winners like Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole to perennial crowd-pleasers like our Lofty Buttermilk Pancakes (which really are so very lofty). Here’s wishing everyone a very happy, very merry holiday weekend!
A lot of the time Black Friday deals really aren’t great deals at all. They entice you into buying things you don’t need or products that aren’t very well made, and they only seem like a bargain in the rush of the doorbuster sale.
However, there are still a few great products that will be available for steep discounts over the holiday shopping season. If you’ve been considering investing in a KitchenAid, Vitamix, or a new set of knives, now might be the time to treat yourself. Here are the top 10 Black Friday deals we’re actually excited about.
We make such a fuss over Thanksgiving, especially us food people. We talk for weeks about dry versus wet brines. We debate about whether to serve a traditional or more edgy menu. We plan out the table settings and the playlist.
But today, I am showing up under the assumption that all your pie questions are answered and your bird is already in the oven. I am showing up to ask you about gratefulness and thankfulness.
How do I grill this bird? Can I just slam this in the oven and forget about it? How do I take the temperature? What if it isn’t thawed just yet? We have answers for you! From the easiest, simplest way to cook a turkey, to a few mistakes to avoid, here are the essentials. It’s a big bird, but it’s not a big deal.
What’s the best potato for mashed potatoes? How can you keep them warm? How much butter and cream can they really take and still survive? You have answers; we have questions. There are mashed potatoes at the end.
