3D Turkey Cake Pan

3D Turkey Cake Pan

Nothing can quite take the place of a full sized roast turkey at the center of the Thanksgiving table, but I’ll give a close second to Nordicware’s 3D Turkey Cake Pan, which produces a beautiful turkey cake that stands almost as high as a real turkey will. The cake is baked in two halves, and when each half has cooled, they can be stood up ... Read More »

Blackberry Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Blackberry Sauce

I’ve noticed, over the past few years, that recipes for cranberry sauce are calling for less and less sugar. Maybe it’s just the type of cranberry sauce that I’ve had, but cranberries have such a great natural tartness to them that I’ve never tasted a cranberry sauce that was too sweet. I far prefer cranberry sauces that are a little on the sweeter side because ... Read More »

Trongs

Trongs probably won’t become the next spork, despite the strangely catchy name, but they are an interesting little foodie accessory that fills a little gap in the food world.

Apple cider is one of my favorite ... Read More »

Thanksgiving Recipes and Ideas

Happy Thanksgiving!

The days are quickly ticking by and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Since it’s such a big food holiday here in the US, it’s often the case that dishes must be prepped ahead of time and oven space (and time) carefully allotted to everything in advance. In honor of the planning of the holiday, I’m devoting this whole week to Thanksgiving recipes ... Read More »

How to choose a roasting pan

Mauviel Roasting Pan

A crowd-feeding turkey is the biggest thing that some of us cook during the year, and that often means that we need special cookware to accommodate its size and shape, while most oven-roasted meats and vegetables do just fine in smaller and shallower pans. A roasting pan should be big and fairly deep, about 3-4 inches, to hold all the drippings from your roast and ... Read More »
