I’m not much of a cook, or a baker, for that matter. It’s not that I’m bad at it; I’m just lazy. But at the beginning of the year, I decided it was time to man up and learn how to make some new dishes. I bought “The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook: 650 Recipes for Everything You’ll Ever Want to Make” by America’s Test Kitchen. My first recipe? Fudgy Brownies.
Thanksgiving is always the same. The turkey. The stuffing (or dressing if that’s what you and yours call it). The sweet potato casserole. The green bean casserole. The mashed potatoes. The rolls. The pies. Sound familiar? Why not switch it up this year?
For this issue, I had the honor of preparing a Thanksgiving meal. Hats off to all you ladies and gents who make this day possible for your friends and family each year. It’s no easy task. I know how difficult and long the day can be. And the days leading up to it, for that matter.
The older I get, the more I want to create new traditions for the holidays and this time of year in general. When you’re a child, it’s always wonderful to wake up on Thanksgiving welcomed by the clatter of your parents in the kitchen and the sound of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV in the background.
