Apple Sausage Stuffing Bites Video

I love firsts. No matter whether they are big or small, the first time for almost anything is special and worth cherishing. First day at school. The first time you fall in love. Your first car. The first steps your baby takes. The first word your child speaks. Yes, even the first time you break with tradition and try a new recipe for the holidays can be momentous in its own way.

I’ve been hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve dinner for our families for the past 15 years and even though I create recipes for a living I’m a creature of habit. I sort through cooking magazines and cookbooks hoping for new inspiration, which does come along now and then, but for the most part I stick to my tried and true dishes like Brined Turkey, Sweet Potatoes in Orange Cups, Maple Roast Veggies, Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Lemon and Poppy Seeds, and Pecan Pie (there are a few more I make without fail, but so I don’t sound totally glutinous I’ll stop here).

Tiny Corn Muffins Video

If you visit Kentucky there is one thing you will likely be eating regularly: cornbread. My tastebuds get all warm and fuzzy just thinking back to my childhood in Louisville and my grandmother’s cornbread, which she baked in corn-shaped copper pans. Heaven. I took years of trying to recreate my grandmother’s exquisite cornbread and transferred all that knowledge into a bite-sized muffin.

When done wrong, cornbread can run the gamut from painfully dry and tasteless, to greasy and so laden with butter or oil that it overpowers the fresh taste of the corn. However when done right cornbread is a thing of perfection, light and fluffy on the inside and golden on the outside, with just a touch of crunch on top and a subtle sweetness.

Dye-Free Confetti Cupcakes from Weelicious

A birthday party simply wouldn’t be the same without yummy cupcakes to help celebrate. But what about the artificial colors found in most store bought cupcakes? These Dye-Free Confetti Cupcakes are my worry-free party solution. They’re so darn cute, and as you can see from Chloe’s reaction below, absolutely delicious!

Dye-Free Confetti Cupcakes from Weelicious

My kids’ school has (thankfully) knuckled down this year on snacks, food-dye and artificial coloring and the amount of sugar that parents can bring for birthday celebrations. I’m all for moderation, so on occasion I will let my kids eat just about anything, however I’ve always made it clear to them that artificial food dyes aren’t good for their bodies. While my son has totally embraced this fact and exercises caution, my daughter has a hard time resisting anything featuring color.

When I first saw these cupcakes in Jessica Merchant’s new cookbook, Seriously Delicious, I knew both of my kids would go gaga for them as the cake is dye-free and I...

How to Make Green Bean Casserole

I finally figured out how to make Thanksgiving continue all month long. You reach out to different groups of friends and family and convince them that even weeks before Thanksgiving, you need to do trial runs meaning friendship Thanksgiving parties or any other way that allows you to make a juicy brined turkey, cranberry sauce, glazed sweet potatoes and all the fix ins as many times as possible. The only way I get to make all of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes is by doing it this way. If not I would end up preparing 30 dishes on November 27th and that’s just not going to happen.

Even when I con (vince) friends to do this they generally want to be part of the fun cooking different dishes, but haven’t tried making certain recipes that are generally reserved for holidays like Maple Brined Turkey, Sweet Potatoes in Orange Cups, Brussel Sprouts, Pear Pistachio Crisp, Sweet Potato Biscuits (featured on Goop) and Pumpkin Pie Parfaits. I’ve made tons of Thanksgiving videos over the...
