The Whisky-Tea Highball I'll Be Sipping This Thanksgiving

We teamed up with Johnnie Walker to share a cocktail that's a twist on the old-school highball. With a mix of smoky flavor, ginger, and spice, it's a cozy special-occasion drink you can sip throughout the holidays and beyond. For me, Thanksgiving has always been about gathering with and giving to others. I’ve been hosting and cooking a Thanksgiving...

11 Handy Sugar Substitutes to Keep in the Pantry (and the Fridge!)

Last weekend, I broke the number one rule I share with everyone who asks me for baking advice: to make sure you have all your ingredients before starting the recipe. But there I was, halfway through cracking an egg, when I looked over to the shelf where I keep dry ingredients to see my sugar jar woefully near-empty. I wasn’t about to sprint to the grocery...

The Most Popular Thanksgiving Dish in Your State

Photo by satelliteinternet.com There’s one side dish that my family’s Thanksgiving table is never complete without. My grandmother’s mashed rutabagas, or “rooties” as we call them, are like Lindsay Lohan at a nightclub circa 2005: always making an appearance.

This week, we’re wet-brining without the fuss. By this time each...

The Surprising Baking Tool That's an Organizer's Dream

Until recently, I believed that I was immune to the “Target spell”. The phenomenon of walking into a Target thinking you’re going to walk out with the dish soap you needed, and only the dish soap you needed, but walking out with a yoga mat, an impossibly fuzzy blanket, and a whole set of acrylic paints—because this quarantine hobby will pan out, right?...

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Erin McDowell's New Cookbook

I baked my first pie alongside my Grandma Jeanne when I was 14 years old. It was for a church social, and she was experimenting with an olive oil crust. I’d always loved cooking and baking, but Grandma’s country kitchen was less stressful than my mother’s, because Grandma was more accepting of a mid-process mess. I distinctly remember the proud feeling...

Is Your Home Thanksgiving-Ready? Here's Our Checklist

I’ve been thinking a lot lately (as I’m sure many of you have) about how to maintain the nostalgic feeling of the holiday season when things look so completely foreign this year. Thanksgiving, for me, usually meant: waking up just in time to catch the tail-end of the Macy’s parade; kitchen smells indicating my mom’s actually-early call time; and if...
