8 Smart Ways to Enjoy a Thanksgiving for Just Two
Last year I learned firsthand that cooking Thanksgiving dinner for two, while very enjoyable, comes with its challenges. For starters, while a 10-pound turkey seems small compared to those 25-pound birds, it’s still a lot of meat for two people. Perhaps, there are more suitable choices than a whole turkey. From side dishes and desserts, to non-turkey main courses and leftovers, we get a lot of questions about hosting holiday dinners for a cozier gathering.

Recipe: Jamaican Sorrel Punch
When it comes to holiday drinking, eggnog is only the beginning. Many cultures and cuisines proudly claim a Christmas punch and this week we’re bringing you The Global Punch Bowl with five festive punches, each with a story of their own. It takes time to realize the importance of some traditions and flavors in your life. That’s how I feel about sorrel punch, the drink my dad always insisted we make at Christmas, even though we very rarely got around to it.

Recipe: Stovetop Steam-Fried Green Beans and Mushrooms
Green beans have earned their spot as the obligatory Thanksgiving vegetable for good reason — they are delicious, kid-friendly, and easy to prepare. Whether steamed, roasted, or folded into a creamy casserole, chances are they’re on your holiday menu. Try a new method this year and steam-fry your green beans with shallots and mushrooms. Simple but unexpected, it’s a vegetable dish that will please even the pickiest of eaters.

Edible Gift Idea: Homemade Vinaigrette
As far as holiday gifts are concerned, I believe homemade foods are the only way to go. They are economical, from the heart and fun to enjoy together. I give a jar of basic tangy vinaigrette every year, to the delight and impress of many friends. Little do they know how easy it is to assemble. I usually have everything on hand to whip up a few jars!Making vinaigrette was my first job in the kitchen, as my parents prepared weekday dinners.

Recipe: Lamb Meatballs with Lemon Sauce
Behold, a bright and sunny main dish that’s perfect for any spring celebration! These tender and flavorful meatballs, napped in a tangy, lemony sauce, are not only delicious, they’re appropriate for a Passover Seder, Easter dinner, or even just tonight’s main course. While Hanukkah and Thanksgiving only coincide once in a blue moon, Passover and Easter often overlap on the spring calendar.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Scalloped Sweet Potatoes
This holiday side takes everything you love about a traditional potato gratin — the bath of butter and cream — and tweaks it to play off the flavors of sweet potatoes. A bit of thyme and nutmeg are added to bring out the savory side of sweet potatoes, and sprinkle of nutty Gruyère cheese tops the dish before it goes into the oven. If you’re looking for a new tradition on your Thanksgiving table this year, consider this a contender.

Pitcher Cocktail Recipe: Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria
Sangria isn’t just for summer. Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to stir up a big seasonally-inspired pitcher — perfect for kicking off the holiday season. Since we’re celebrating, I decided to add a little class to the pitcher this week with a bit of VS Cognac and some bubbly wine. The cognac that I chose perfectly compliments the apples with its notes of caramel and vanilla, and it makes your cider into a cocktail suited for the adults at your gathering.

Recipe: Gluten-Free Mexican Hot Chocolate Pancakes
For me, Christmastime means sipping hot cocoa by the fire and fighting with your siblings over who has more marshmallows in their cup. My mom would inevitably jump in and tell everyone that they have the exact same number of marshmallows floating on top of their cocoa, but I’d always remain skeptical. Luckily I’m a grownup now and can have all the marshmallows I want, or I can be even fancier and whip up a stack of hot chocolate-style pancakes with all of the fixings.
Jan 22, 2020
Recipe: Gluten-Free Baked Vanilla Spice Sprinkle Doughnuts
Since going gluten-free, doughnuts are one of the things I miss most during the holidays. Each year, on December 26, my grandfather would wake up before everyone else and make his way to the local doughnut store. He’d bring back a bakers’ dozen of every kind of sugary treat. As each of us awoke, sleepy-eyed, stepping over boxes and leftover ribbon, we would reach into the box for something sweet and find our way to a cup of coffee or tea.

How To Make Candied Bacon Fudge
We still can’t knock that tasty candied bacon kick we’ve been on lately. With the holidays near, there seems to be even more ways to put it to use, this time we paired it with chocolate fudge. It’s a super tasty treat that would be great as a gift or on your own table, that is if you can keep from sneaking into the kitchen at night and snacking on a piece — or 8 (that’s normal right?).
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Nutmeg-Lemon Pfeffernusse
Pfeffernüsse are not only fun to say (feh-fer-noose) but a fabulous treat to add to the holiday cookie platter.Translated from German pfeffernüsse means “pepper nuts,” which is – aptly – a good part of what these traditional Christmas cookies consist of. We took the original and made it a bit more contemporary by adding lemon zest, dropping a few spices (although we did keep in a dash of black pepper for nostalgia’s sake) and amping up the nutmeg flavor.

The Global Quilt of My Iftar Table
Today Islam is no longer a religion that is just in the Middle East or Arabia. Generations have moved north, south, west, and further east. There are converts around the world; my husband being one of them, and with each person choosing Islam as their faith, another layer of culture and customs is added to the religious holiday, bringing more vibrancy, diversity, and color. Ramadan for me has changed so much from when I was younger and celebrated the month with my parents and siblings in London.

Recipe: Monkey Bread with Bourbon Crème Anglaise
Breakfast was not a special meal in my house growing up. At least, not in the sense that we enjoyed fancy homemade cinnamon rolls and coffee cakes on a regular basis. Sure, we made pancakes (from a box) on weekends, but it was nothing to write home about. In fact, I had never heard of the strangely titled dish Monkey Bread until I started food writing a few years back. What was this beautiful, mysterious pile of dough that people ate for breakfast?

Its name is derived from the local dialect’s word for Easter (Posch), combined with Weck, a regional term for white bread rolls. Poschweck therefore simply means “Easter bread.
