Yes, the turkey might get most of the attention, but let's get real--it's actually the amazing array of other Thanksgiving recipes at the table that make it a feast worth raving about. Can you imagine a plate without mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, or cranberry sauce? Even the most impressive turkey can't hold down the fort alone.
Tis the season -- for pumpkin bread, and that's a good reason to be jolly. Nothing quite captures the culinary spirit of the holidays on the table like these slightly spicy, deeply rich loaves. But let's not make the same old pumpkin bread again this year, even though -- sure -- it's good and -- yes -- it came from Grandma.

To be honest, I haven't bought salad dressing in years. Part of the reason is that bottles of salad dressing in the fridge always seem somehow stale to me (even though they appear to keep practically forever -- hey, maybe that's part of the problem).

We all have our fantasies of the perfect snow day, that impromptu holiday that starts with the first glimpse in the morning of those beautiful untouched drifts in the yard and a whole world transformed to white. If you're lucky, you might get a few minutes to savor the quiet beauty before the little ones start bouncing out of bed -- let the shrieks and giggles begin. Ah, but woe betide the unprepared!
Pumpkin pie, we love you. But when it's fall party time (whether it's an autumn dinner party, a Halloween hoedown, or a Thanksgiving spread), we'd like to shake up the dessert table with some pumpkin sweets that are a little unexpected. Pumpkin is one of those ingredients that bring out bragging rights, and rightfully so.
Ok, we'll admit it: Halloween isn't even here yet, but already we're kind of taking pumpkins for granted. C'mon, can you blame us? Ever since a certain national coffee chain unleashed the pumpkin-spice latte, pumpkin (or at least, pumpkin spice) has been the official flavor of fall, popping up in all sorts of sweet treats from candies, cookies and muffins to breads and biscotti.
I bet this will be the tenth or eleventh year that we've had no trick-or-treaters at our house. I'm always so ready for them, too! I put out a jack-o-lantern and leave the path well-lit and buy ten or eleven massive bags of candy that my husband and I will curse ourselves for eating well into November.
