Today: Leftover mashed potatoes get a new lease on life.
After Thanksgiving last week, you must have leftover mashed potatoes.
Because you know that running out is the worst thing that can happen on Thanksgiving, second only to dropping the pie on the floor.
But rewarmed mashed potatoes are never destined to be terribly good -- they turn floury and dry overnight, and any attempts to revive them only succeed in making them more sticky.
There are lots of places to secretly stick leftover mashed potatoes, but the question of seasoning complicates matters. Can you reuse that dreamy garlic buttermilk mash in your cinnamon rolls, or chocolate cake? No. No, you cannot.
And, honestly, are you ready to make anything of the...Read More »
Today: Thanksgivukkah still isn't over -- as long as you've got leftover cranberry sauce, you can use it in a filling for these bite-sized sufganiyot.
Cranberry sauce is my favorite part of a traditional Thanksgiving meal, but because I dine with a group of folks who don't share my love for this tart condiment, we always have tons left over at the end of the meal.
I usually don't have any trouble making my way through the leftovers -- they're arguably the best part of Thanksgiving dinner. But this year, an early Hanukkah is the perfect excuse to fry up a big batch of fluffy donut holes inspired by traditional Hanukkah sufganiyot to fill with my extra cranberries.
This dough is a traditional raised donut dough adapted from the recipe from my favo...Read More »

British Bride's Pye
As far back as 1685, the British served "bride's pye," a large, round pastry filled with pine kernels, sweetbreads, oysters, spices, and lamb stones (you don't want to know). One hundred years later, as preserved fruits replaced the savory filling, the pie evolved into the fruitcake, a symbol of fertility and prosperity. Our reinvention mixes dried fruits, almonds, and pecans into the batter. The cooled cake is brushed with a sugar-brandy syrup and covered with almond-flavored fondant and white marzipan accents.

Japanese Sponge Cake
More delicate and aromatic than their European counterparts, Japanese sweets often reinterpret Western desserts using popular Japanese flavors. We added white peach, green tea, and cherry blossom extracts to traditional Japanese sponge cake. The mini treats, perched atop

"Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed plenty of good times -- and good food -- with your loved ones. After all of the turkey, stuffing, and other holiday fare, I wanted to ease up on the meat-heavy food today. That's why I've prepared a completely vegetarian roasted squash and mushroom pasta that comes together in less than an hour. This hearty but healthy dish also gets a sprinkle of breadcrumbs and Parmesan, which adds just the right amount of crunch. With the holiday season fully upon us, make this easy meatless dish (there's plenty of time for more turkey!)."
