  • Kicked-Up Cranberry Sauce: Cranberry, Apple, and Jalapeño United 26 Nov 2014 | 2:03 am

    If you're like me, you probably get tired of the regular boring cranberry sauce that most people serve at holiday dinners. You know the stuff that I'm referring to — that gelatinous, mushy cranberry mold that your grandmother plated up every year for as long as you can remember. The flavor isn't terribly bad, but I don't understand why something that is as easy to make as homemade cranberry sauce is so often purchased off a grocery store shelf. When the canned version is served alongside a delicious spread of Thanksgiving goodies, I'm the first to overlook it and move on to the next offering. So this year I decided to try something new: since I'm a fan of spicy foods, I thought I'd add jalapeños to my otherwise fairly sweet homemade sauce and the results were delicious. If you prefer another type of pepper, feel free to use that one. You really can't go wrong with this recipe! Continue reading →

  • Barbecue Thanksgiving Part 2: Potatoes Mashed, Potatoes Sweet 24 Nov 2014 | 1:35 pm

    You know your Thanksgiving taters are yummy when they vanish before you get to eat them. I'm assuming they were tasty, since the pan was whistle-clean when I went for my first helping, only to be greeted by the fading fumes of molasses as a small child helped themselves for thirds, and, not coincidentally, lasts.

  • Barbecue Thanksgiving Part 1: Pulled Pork Stuffing and Gravy 20 Nov 2014 | 11:10 pm

    A few years back, some of our favorite food writers collaborated on a barbecued Thanksgiving on our mother site, the Fiery Foods & Barbecue Super Site. Drawing inspiration from that idea, me and mine cooked up our own take on that awesome theme. Here's the first part of that big adventure: Dr. BBQ's pulled pork stuffing and a pulled pork gravy.

  • Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey Enchilada Hot Dish 20 Nov 2014 | 7:16 pm

  • Simple, Strong Snacks: Foods to Fuel Your Black Friday Shopping 27 Nov 2014 | 1:00 pm FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    Fig-and-Walnut Energy BarsYou’ve successfully conquered Thanksgiving dinner — now it’s time to look ahead to the next seasonal feat. Holiday baking? Not yet. First comes Black Friday shopping, and given the early hours, long lines and potentially feisty crowds you may encounter, you’ll indeed need a few go-to foods to fuel the day. This year, instead of resorting to shopping mall concession stands, bring with you some fuss-free eats — think easy-to-pack bites that you can munch on throughout the day. Read on below to find some of Food Network’s favorite on-the-go snacks to keep you shopping-ready all day long.

    Chewy, subtly sweet with a bit of crunch, Fig-and-Walnut Energy Bars (pictured above) from Food Network Magazine provide just the kind of early-morning bite needed to kick off the day. These quick-fix bars feature a fragrant blend of ground cinnamon and ginger, plus chopped walnuts, dried figs and oats for a contrast of textures.

    Hummus in a HurryFor something a bit heartier, look to Alton Brown’s Hummus in a Hurry (pictured above). This 15-minute blend of canned chickpeas, fresh garlic and refreshing lemon juice is a cinch to pull together, and when packed with crunchy carrots or crackers, it’s a family-friendly snack you can count on.

    Sweet and SaltinesSatisfy both your sweet and savory cravings with Trisha Yearwood’s Sweet and Saltines (pictured above), a last-minute recipe that takes just a handful of everyday ingredients to prepare.

  • Sunny’s Italian Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash — The Weekender 27 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    Sausage-Stuffed Acorn SquashI don’t know if it was trendy in the 1980s or if it was a particular quirk of my mother’s, but we ate many a meal of stuffed vegetables during my childhood. No hollow or overgrown vegetable was safe. Peppers of all colors, giant zucchini, tomatoes and even, occasionally, avocados were filled with a medley of rice, protein and onion, then draped with shredded cheese and run under the broiler.

    I’m fairly convinced that the reason my mom liked this particular style of dinner prep so much was that it gave her the opportunity to stretch a pound of meat across several meals and use up all manner of odds and ends from the crisper. I also suspect that she tucked more vegetables into the filling than I was aware of as a small child.

    Many years have passed since I groaned at the idea of a meal of stuffed peppers or summer squash. In fact, now that I’m in charge of the grocery budget and my refrigerator’s ecosystem, I can see the many virtues in this style of cooking.

    Right now, we’ve got a world of winter squash available for the stuffing. I like Sunny Anderson’s Italian Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash, but truly, just about any combination of savory veg, meat (or crumbled tofu), and grain works wonders. This weekend, instead of clearing out the fridge with a big pot of soup, finish off those holiday tidbits by sauteing them and stuffing them into acorn squash.

  • The Calm Before the Feast: FN Stars’ Wednesday-Night Game Plans 26 Nov 2014 | 1:00 pm FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    The Wednesday night before Thanksgiving is full of travel, traffic – and tradition. As families descend upon their Thanksgiving destinations, it’s a busy night for pizza spots, since no one feels much like cooking dinner. (If this is your game plan, we rounded up some of the best places across the country to pick up a pie.) At the New York City Wine & Food Festival, we chatted with Food Network stars about their pre-turkey day plans. Some choose to eat light to save up reserves for the big day, while others carb-load to get ready. What does your family do – and eat – the night before the big feast?

    Alex Guarnaschelli
    The Wednesday before Thanksgiving, I usually eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, because I am just cooking, and everything is just going into that Thanksgiving dinner already. The day before Thanksgiving, you don’t want to eat anything anyway. You’re saving up that extra reserve tank to fill it up with stuffing and mashed potatoes.

    Damaris Phillips
    The Wednesday night before, my brothers are pretty hilarious and they always go light, but I don’t believe that’s the way to do it. I carb-load, so I typically eat pasta the night before. Stretch it out, get myself ready.

    Jeff Mauro
    The night before, I think you keep it a little light. But you don’t want to shrink your stomach by not eating. So I have a medium-sized meal. That’s the greatest tactic.

    Marcela Valladolid
    Wednesday before, everybody is getting quesadillas and popcorn for dinner. We’ve got turkeys and soccer tournaments [for my son] going on. So nothing major, probably just chilling and hanging out at the house.

    Geoffrey Zakarian
    The Wednesday before, I’m either cooking or helping someone cook. This year we’re actually doing it at my house, which is unusual, because last year we went out.

    Robert Irvine
    My travels are 345 days a year, so I could be on a plane the night before and get back late. But that’s in time for the special day. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for everything that we have.

  • Don’t Hog the Oven: Slow-Cooker Thanksgiving Sides 26 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    Slow-Cooker Sausage Stuffing

    With the marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes, golden rolls and pies galore sitting in your oven — not to mention that perfectly cooked turkey of yours — any way to free up space in this overworked kitchen appliance is welcome on Thanksgiving Day. Luckily your slow cooker is ready and able to help pick up the slack, with these easy recipes for Thanksgiving classics that are low on prep time and high on hands-off cooking. With new techniques for everything from stuffing to potatoes, you’ll be amazed how easy Slow-Cooker Thanksgiving Sides come together.

    You don’t need to use the oven or stovetop to get a hearty stuffing on your holiday table. Instead, add cut-up, stale French bread, veggies and sweet Italian sausage to the slow cooker, and let the machine take it from there. Cooked in the juices given off from the sausage and veggies, Slow-Cooker Sausage Stuffing (pictured above) needs only a touch of chicken broth to reach soft, savory perfection.

    Slow-Cooker Home-Style Mashed Potatoes

    Traditional mashed potatoes are easy to make by the book, but Slow-Cooker Home-Style Mashed Potatoes take even less effort and free up a stovetop burner. Instead of bringing a pot of water to a boil on the stove, simply toss russet potatoes, butter, salt, pepper and just a cup of water into the slow cooker, then let it cook on high for a few hours. From there, the potatoes will become tender and ready to be mashed into the buttery, fluffy side.

    Slow-Cooker Spiced Sweet Potatoes with Pecans

    Candied sweet potatoes are a Thanksgiving mainstay, and this hands-off Slow-Cooker Spiced Sweet Potatoes with Pecans recipe makes it easier than ever to enjoy them. Cut sweet potatoes into thick rounds and add them to the slow cooker with brown sugar, spices and butter. Once they’re tender (not mushy), top with toasted chopped pecans for a sweet side that doesn’t even need the marshmallow topping.

    Slow-Cooker Green Bean Casserole

    Slow-Cooker Green Bean Casserole may be cooked low and slow, but this recipe takes some liberties with shortcut ingredients to save on prep time. Raw cremini mushrooms release their savory flavor as the green beans cook, while an easy, creamy sauce and canned French-fried onions add the last special touches.

    Get more on these slow-cooker Thanksgiving dishes from Food Network.
