give thanks (THANKSGIVING)
Nothing says easy like a casserole and few things are more delicious. Especially if your my fiancé and the casserole in question is chicken stuffing.
I love to bake. And cook. And make. And eat. So when Hunter Premo asked me to assist her with a new series, which we’ve dubbed Fake It Till You Bake It, I jumped at the opportunity to help my newlywed future sister-in-law become more confident in the kitchen. Side note: I would have helped her anyway. :) Our first objective—A crowd-pleasing Thanksgiving dessert. Something impressive, but not overly complicated. The solution—a classic lattice-top apple pie.
You guys are the best and make everything amazing. So amazing in fact that I completely forgot it was National Apple Cider Day for which I had prepared these light and fluffy, baked cinnamon-sugar-coated apple cider doughnuts.
Cauliflower has always gotten a bad rap. It’s the last veggie to be eaten off mixed vegetable platters at parties. It gives off an unpleasant sulfur smell when cooked. In general, they are tolerated. BUT NO MORE!
Don’t you think it’s time to make your Thanksgiving centerpiece something that can stand on its own. Something juicy and bursting with flavor. Another all-American classic—Meatloaf!
The one thing I usually find lacking at Thanksgiving dinners are the vegetables. I feel like people are preoccupied with the preparing the turkey, stuffing, and potatoes that the vegetables are usually an afterthought.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and although it’s not my personal favorite holiday, it does come with some pretty awesome food.
Fun fact: The Italian word Tiramisu means “pick up me” or “cheer me up,” which I think is a perfect description of this coffee-flavored custard dessert.
