I'm plowing ahead with menu-planning this year, and I've come up with too many things to make for 2 meals. I've been asked to contribute just one side dish and dessert, which is actually harder than just planning a whole meal because I want them to be THE BEST and there are so many great options to choose from:

Happy Thanksgiving! This year, I took a different approach to Thanksgiving. I didn’t host anything, I barely made plans at all and I decided that if I did cook, I wouldn’t be too ambitious about it.

Not only did we endeavor to make six kinds of baked goods, but we also doubled each recipe – resulting in hundreds of cookies […]

This year, I’m hosting Thanksgiving by myself.

That’s why Heather and I took on the entire spread last year, and probably why I started out making only 3 dishes […]

There is an absurd amount of food in our refrigerator right now. On Monday we hosted the EPIP Seattle steering committee for a potluck in which we made Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork  Tacos  and a fresh spinach and feta salad. The guests heeded my plea to bring something other than just wine or a dessert […]
