Thanksgiving Round Up Part I

Somehow Thanksgiving is almost here and this year I’m headed to the folks’ place. Since I’ll be getting on a plane in just a couple of weeks and the days and nights will be packed, I need to tell my mother what to stock the house with for my “special needs” recipes.

The wonderful thing about my parents’ house and most especially about my mother is that gluten-free and dairy free are easy. No stretch here. No crazy substitutions and nothing I drool over while sadly eating some dry nothingness. Nope. Yes, my sister will likely make her famous pecan tart and my brother might make his amazing yeast rolls, so we have to be extra sure that there is plenty for me and my dietary needs cousins to feast upon.

Appetizers
Walnut Paté
Stuffed Mushrooms
Roasted Beet Hummus

Starters and Sides
Salad of Chicories, Celery, Dates, Pecans, and Pomegranates
Savory Tart of Melted leeks and Roasted Tomatoes
Butternut Squash Galette
Green Garlic Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes
Wild Rice Stuffing with Sausage and Wild Mushrooms

Dessert
Cold Front Bundt
Apple Apple Cake
Boozy Bourbon Pecan Pie
Chocolate Hazelnut Torte
Flourless Chocolate Torte

What to do with that leftover turkey carcass? Make stock.
And those leftover cranberries? Cranberry Breakfast Cake.

I write. I eat. And I cook. I write about what I cook and eat. I love finding new foods, being inspired to make something I've never made, and most of all I love feeding other people things that they have never tried before. I like disproving myths about food and what it means to eat well, to eat healthy, often on a budget, and for some of us- to eat with a bunch of food allergies (and still eat well!).
