  • This Beef Noodle Stir-Fry is a No-Brainer Dinner

    "I am constantly on the hunt for meals that are not only fast but also simply delicious. Today, I found the perfect meal that falls into both of those categories: beef stroganoff stir-fry. This dinner is so easy and it takes less than 30 minutes to create! Just quickly saute chopped flank steak and then a bit of red onion and some cremini mushrooms (they add a lovely layer of earthiness to the finished dish). Serve everything up on top of buttered egg noodles with a dollop of sour cream and -- voila! -- dinner is done."

  • Look at Those Mussels! Chef John Besh Joins Sarah Carey in the Kitchen

    "Here's one thing I'm thankful for this year: Today, chef John Besh, New Orleans restaurateur and author of "Cooking from the Heart: My Favorite Lessons Learned Along the Way," is joining me in the kitchen to make an elegant and incredibly easy dinner, moules Provencal. The mussels are cooked in an intensely fragrant broth of garlic, scallions, tomatoes, fennel fronds, and a touch of vermouth (John says it helps to bring out their sweetness). These mussels were so tasty, I couldn't help but eat them right out of the pot. Make this heartfelt meal for your family and learn more about John's books and projects at ChefJohnBesh.com."

  • Start Stir-Frying Tonight (and Make This Chicken)

    "If you're looking for the fastest way to create big flavors, then it's time to start stir-frying! Today, I'm making a Thai-inspired red-curry stir-fry with chicken, snow peas, and even some fresh pineapple (it adds just the right amount of sweetness).

    Tradition can be a tyrant -- some dishes earn their place in the Thanksgiving pantheon, while others squeak by year after year on sentiment alone (ahem, Nana's gluey turnip mash). Bust your family's way-too-sweet potato rut with a bright and unique side dish that stands on merit. Bonus: it's dairy-free.

    1 1/4 cups miniature marshmallows

    Cook's Note

    It may look like a traditional sweet potato casserole at first glance, but this version gets richness from coconut milk instead of cream, and brightness from fresh lime juice.
