My favorite time of year

0 comments

Year after year, it goes without saying, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Yes, there’s always a lot of buzz in our kitchen – Grand Central Station comes to mind – with friends and family ALL in the game of making this next holiday a memorable one.

Love the energy and passion around creating a dish that might have been made for 3 generations without a single change year after year after year. And I appreciate something entirely new which is more a decision to “just try it” and let’s all be surprised. No matter what you create, Thanksgiving is a not-so-gentle reminder to be thankful…grateful…appreciative of all that we have – and share those words over the dinner table to each and every guest.

I came across a few more favorite Thanksgiving dishes here if you are so inclined (and have the time) to try something new. Grazie.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Mushrooms with Burrata
Spice Rubbed Whole Roasted Turkey with Gravy 
Fennel Spice Rub 
Panettone stuffing
Roasted Branch of Brussels Sprouts with Fennel Spice
Fresh Apple Crostata
