  • Have a festive holiday dinner with these tips.

    This holiday season, don't balk at the idea of hosting a dinner party, embrace it! With a simple menu, classic table décor, and a little help from the kids, the guests, and the hubby, a perfect holiday dinner party is within your grasp. These eight planning tips can help you pull off a dinner party that will be the highlight of the holidays.

    1. Stick with a simple, yet classic, menu.

    There's a reason that turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole are the staples of holiday menus - they're simple, can be prepared ahead of time, and don't break the bank. Stick to a simple menu such as this for your holiday dinner party. Don't be worried about mixing things up some (cauliflower casserole instead of green beans, lamb instead of turkey, or roasted potatoes instead of mashed), but keep the menu easy and achievable.

    2. Shop early.

    Don't leave your shopping for the day of the party. The size of the Samsung Convertible Zone 4-Door Refrigerator means you can shop early and save

  • Take a break from comfort food.

    Take a break from comfort food.

    If you can't stomach the thought of "Thanksgiving Dinner - Part 2," why not add a light alternative to one of your leftover sides? We're thinking roasted cherry tomatoes. Baking them really brings out the flavor, and you'll be grateful for the break from heavier holiday fare.

    Ingredients

    4 pints cherry tomatoes (heirloom varieties are especially nice)
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 large pinch salt and pepper
    1 handful basil leaves, sliced thinly

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large baking sheet with sides, toss tomatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper.

    2. Roast for about 15-20 minutes, or until tomatoes are soft and beginning to brown in places. Place in a serving bowl and top with basil and another drizzle of oil, or some Parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve hot or at room temperature.

  • "Happy Thanksgiving! As much as I love this holiday, I love the leftovers even more. This year, I'm putting those leftovers to good use -- and you should, too. Just follow this recipe for an incredibly simple but wonderfully delicious turkey and mashed potato potpie. The best part about this meal is that it calls for ingredients that you'll probably already have on hand following your family's feast. This is the best way to enjoy one last taste of the holiday (while doing about half of the work). Try it out on your leftovers this weekend!"

  • "Have you ever eaten pasta puttanesca? If you have, then you know that the best part of the dish is the irresistibly complex sauce of tomatoes, capers, olives, and anchovies. Today, I've let those much-loved flavors act as the inspiration behind this chicken puttanesca dish (but I've left out the anchovies, so no need to worry if you're not a fan). Served with some orzo pasta, this super-easy dish is just the thing to make on the eve of Thanksgiving. Bon appetit!"
