Thanksgiving Must-Eats

There is little one can do in the face of nostalgia other than to inveigle ones way around it. Our hearts are always indebted to our childhood memories; in that it is a truth that our father's turkey preparation or grandmother's stuffing, each families' unique spin, is the measure. We cherish the old traditions but still want to create our own:


Quick Lemon-Garlic Marinated Shrimp

Baked Stuffed Brie with Cranberries & Walnuts


Thanksgiving Cider

Pumpkin Pie 'Martini'


Olive Oil-and-Sauternes Cake with Roasted Pears

Thanksgiving is a holiday of tradition but also an invention. Thank the old and give the new.

Experiment & Enjoy with the above recipes.
