One week of Thanksgiving Highlights is never enough. After I published last week’s links, my Reader was once again filled with new ideas, tips and recipes for the holiday. Enjoy!
The Pioneer Woman posted her favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. If I were you, I’d avoid the post if you’re hungry. Also, I made her green bean casserole a couple years ago and it was very well received.
Speaking of green bean casserole (which was never on my Thanksgiving table growing up), Alton Brown is the new mental_floss food expert and he’s got a post featuring the history of green bean casserole and his recipe for making your own.
Life Your Way has 10 tips to help you be a great Thanksgiving hostess.
Apartment Therapy has suggestions for hosting those with food allergies. When I last looked, the post had 103 comments, so there’s a lot of great advice there.
I’m fascinated by this Chow video, posted on Lifehacker. Apparently if you boil potatoes and then put them in ice water, you can just slide the peels off. Granted, the time required to boil and ice may not be quicker than just using a peeler, but I think the technique probably has it’s uses.
At some point this fall, I’m going to make this Vegan Creamy Curried Pumpkin Soup from Joy the Baker. And perhaps several of the other recipes she links to at the bottom of her post (Salted Caramel Cheesecake Pie!)
Dan Pashman says that vegetarians don’t need sympathy at Thanksgiving and offers up his recipe for veggieducken to further that notion on NPR’s website. Strange as it may look, I think it probably tastes really good.
Savvy Julie has outdone herself once again. Check out her weeklong plan for Thanksgiving success, plus 2 different Thanksgiving menus.
“Keep calm and cook on” is sort of my life’s mantra, but NPR’s “The Salt” blog has 6 tips to do so especially for Thanksgiving.
Peas and Thank You has a collection of Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes, all of which are meatless.
The Kitchn has 15 rolls, biscuits and quick breads “for the thanksgiving table”, but I’m enough of a fan of carbs to presume they could go on any table. (I’ve had lots of success with #7)
