Today, I learned never to read a recipe article on an empty stomach. My mouth is watering and I need to find some nuts STAT!

Well this looks delightful. I just really love your guys’ holiday party content. It makes me look so good when I bring this stuff to parties! :)

Got the naughty or nice ones the other day and they actually did smell pretty appetizing, did not try but my good girl loved them.

Sorry for turning this wholesome post into a long thread of people talking about how they all want to die young, Marnie. I mean, I did it on purpose, but also I’m sorry.

At this time of year, Ribbon Candy is the best hard candy. I’d actually say it’s best all year, but it’s usually only available around christmas. Read more

Growing up my mother always made homemade gnocchi as a course between soup and turkey. Really it was the main course and we all just picked at the turkey because we were all full on gnocchi. Read more

When I was a kid, the snack table existed to keep the men and kids (in today’s parlance, non-cooks) out of the kitchen. It was full of wonderful dips, spreads and bite size morsels ranging from savory to sweet. This was the only time of year anyone would splurge for Owl’s Nest Garlic cheddar spread. Grandpa and I were Read more

This is awfully convenient since my family is doing a low-key “games and nosh” type of arrangement this year and I’m tasked with bringing some snacks/appetizers to the table.  My mom’s is still recovering from various ailments/surgeries, so she’s definitely not up to a full-on Thanksgiving dinner, either preparing or Read more

This is a wonderful idea - I work two jobs and take care of my mother - who’s 86... The rest of the family does a “Friendsgiving” thing with deep fried birds etc - so it’ll just be the two of us. I’ve already made a chocolate sour cream cake and an apple pie and was considering Duck since Aldi doesn’t have any lamb - Read more

A friend of mine has a party each summer where everyone is welcome to enter the dip contest. This year’s winner was a thanksgiving themed dip, essentially gravy with other complementary thanksgiving sides, with slices of dinner rolls for a chip. As the runner up, I was not happy about it, but it was pretty good!

I love you all so much. Here is my island of sanity, the source of my joie de vivre, my fountain of youth. Your collective powers know no bounds. Go forth and change the world, one canapé at a time.

This is a terrific idea. Snacks mean a greater variety in things to munch on. Looking forward to the recipes!

One year, My wife, daughter, and I decided to eat out on Thanksgiving. We drive around to find that everything was closed. In desperation, we finally pulled in to a Luby’s cafeteria. The families there kind of formed a bond in a strange way, like denizens in a refugee camp. We talked and watched the Cowboys game Read more

The family and I eat with my FIL. For years I made the whole spread, packaged it in heat and serve portions, and cooked at his house. Then, he got tired of “all the mess” and we started going to Ruby Tuesday (which doesn’t have a traditional thing on the menu) because it was open. For Christmas, we stay home and I do Read more

We’ve been doing a seafood feast the past few years. Dungeness Crab, fried shrimp, shrimp cocktail for the adults, halibut nuggets. It’s cheaper than the full blown traditional feast, and we all like all the things.

For the first time ever last year, we went to a restaurant instead of cooking. It was an off year for our family. Everyone that lives out of town didn’t come down. We went to a place that we have celebrated Passover at in the past, among other things. It was perfect for our group of 8. Read more

If you can find a proper Chinese restaurant that does a 2 (or more) course Peking duck, go for it. If you really want to splurge, get a lobster or a steamed fish as well.

We don’t go out for Thanksgiving but we do go out for Christmas and hoo boy is it worth it. We got to the same restaurant (a nice Italian place) and request the same table every year. We love it.
