  • Lemon Dry Brined Turkey with Sage

    Nearly every bit of advice out there for roasting a turkey recommends brining the bird overnight to ensure that it is moist and tender. One of my favorite alternatives to having a giant ziplock bag of salty water in the fridge is the dry brine! An easy sprinkle of salt over the turkey is all you need for moist and tender meat. As an added bonus there’s not the struggle with the lifting the bird out of a giant bag of water. The resulting roasted turkey also has a super crispy crackling skin! I’ve add a touch of lemon zest to the salt brine to give it a little dimension. Overnight time is recommended for a wet brine (you don’t want to overbrine it) but with a dry brine, 2 or 3 days is perfectly fine and in fact, the longer you dry brine, the crisper the skin.

  • Maple Sweet Potato Casserole

    The traditional sweet potato casserole with sticky sweet marshmallows on top is a classic favorite at Thanksgiving dinner tables. This re-imagined version brings it to a whole new level with a pecan crumble for texture as well as a sweet and fluffy brown sugar meringue piped on top. If you don’t like your sweet potato casserole candy sweet, just skip the meringue topping and bake it with the pecan crumble alone.

  • Decadent Chocolate Sauce

    This rich, deep chocolate sauce is just the thing for true chocolate lovers. For those of you who prefer your chocolate a little more mellow, simply add more cream.

  • Oysters Three Ways: Raw, Fried and Baked

    You can make and serve any one of these preparations on its own, or combine all three in one impressive, fabulous first course. We like to serve the fried oysters over a bed of spinach, but they may also be served on any kind of leafy salad, or on their own on a plate.

  • Asparagus and Saffron Risotto

    I like to think of risotto as a contemplative dish. You don’t have to think too hard about what you’re doing, none of the steps are difficult or technical, but you have to stay close by, stirring gently. It gives you time to think. And when it’s done, you have a dish that has an air of sophistication. Perfect for a dinner party, but easy enough for a family dinner.

  • Stuffed Artichokes

    Stuffed artichokes can be quite challenging to make if you keep them whole. But if you cut them in half, they’re much easier to prepare, and they’re not quite the same huge portion, making them more appropriate for a first course. You can use any Italian spice mix you like, or use oregano, basil, or a mix of the two. For the cheese, use what you like. Provolone, Parmesan, Asiago, or an aged mozzarella would be fine. Or a mix.

  • Spinach Parmesan Baked Mashed Potatoes

    These creamy mashed potatoes are packed with spinach and flavorful Parmesan cheese. To make it even more delicious they’re topped with crispy fried onions.

  • Apple Crumb Pie

    For this pie, you can use your own favorite crust recipe, or buy a ready-made flat sheet of crust. For the apples, look for baking apples, like Granny Smith, but it’s fine to use several varieties so you have a few different apple textures in one pie.
