Harvest Classic Baking Mold

harvest classic pan

While it’s nice to see elaborately shaped pans creating intricate masterpieces out of cake around the holidays, as the Cornucopia Bundt Pan does, it can also be nice to see pans that are a little bit simpler but still get the job done well. Nordic Ware’s Harvest Classic Baking Mold is just such a pan and it is easy to love the look of its ... Read More »

Cornucopia Bundt Pan

I hope that Nordicware never stops coming up with new designs for its bundt pans, because the holidays would be a lot less exciting if we never had new designs to look forward to. Take this Cornucopia Bundt Pan, for instance. A cornucopia is a horn-shaped basket that is typically depicted overflowing with food and grains, symbolizing a bountiful year. Also referred to as a ...

Great Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwich Ideas

While I like heating up a plate of Thanksgiving leftovers and having a holiday dinner all over again, what I really like to do with leftover turkey is make sandwiches.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are a great side dish any time, but are especially good when gravy is involved in a meal, which is why I always make sure that they make an appearance at my Thanksgiving dinner. I do this even if I have other sides, because there are usually plenty of people around to eat it. To go with my garlic-themed menu, I whipped up ... Read More »

A Garlicky Thanksgiving Menu

A Garlicky Thanksgiving Menu

I rarely do themed Thanksgiving dinners, instead preferring to mix and match different ideas and get a little of everything on the table. I’ve noticed that there are plenty of magazines and TV shows out there that do choose to do more of a theme, which is why I thought I’d give it a try for this year’s dinner. I went with a garlic theme. ... Read More »

The High Heat Turkey Method

High Heat Turkey Method

There are more ways to cook turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner then there are turkeys being eaten on the last Thursday in November. Everyone – and their mother – has a strategy and the vast majority of them involve the turkey being in the oven for at least a few hours. I don’t think that there is only one perfect way to cook a turkey and ... Read More »
