Thanksgiving Plans?

If you’re planning on making a Thanksgiving dinner, whether for yourself, your family or friends, or for a special someone, the first thing you have to do is plan your dinner.

Base Menus On Grocery Sale Items

I don’t know of any grocery store, no matter the size, independent or chain, that doesn’t publish in some way a flier of their sale items that week. No matter how this information is available, it’s worth the effort to find them and use them to make your grocery list.

The Rise of Veganism

Too often the fare for those who don’t eat meat is just a collection of side dishes. I’ve also noticed that too many vegetarians are looking for meat replacements like veggie burgers and fake bacon. This is the wrong approach.

Thanksgiving Only A Month Away

If you live alone, don’t be afraid to make something else. Turkey may be traditional, but you’d be better off with something smaller rather than rely on a frozen dinner or one of those processed turkey loaves swimming in salt-laden gravy.

T-Day Minus 11 And Counting

Planning is the secret to having a fun holiday dinner. If you do it right, no matter how many people will be sitting around table, you should be able to enjoy it as much as everyone else.

Kids Improve School Lunches

Recently, a nationwide contest called Cooking Up Change challenged high school kids to come up with dishes that were easy to prepare, met federal nutrition guidelines and could be made for around $1, yes, one-dollar, per meal.
