    I'm going on 30 plus years of 30 for dinner. I agree with all of the points listed, except I don't ask people to bring anything, even if they offer. Never tried Posole before, maybe this will be...

    Sounds like you have found the perfect solution for you this year. I can see the day coming when I do that as well, but it will be a few years down the road.

    I nipped that in the bud early on. Since I do the cooking, I've made it a point to never serve the same cranberry sauce or stuffing twice. Turkey, sure, it's pretty much the same year to year (with...

    I don't know what model it was, but I was recently at a training facility that had a Hamilton Beach toaster in the break room. And it was amazing, it produced the best toast I ever had. I figure...

    Oh, I just read that I can bake them in advance, freeze and then reheat.

    Perfect, the more I can do in advance the better.

    Can you make gougères batter in advance?

    And, if so, how far?

    I'm thinking about making them as an appetizer on Thanksgiving, but wondering if I could make the batter/dough in advance and then cook right before serving.

    Farro ... where to buy? How to cook?

    Of course none of the 3 stores I've been in have it. I would like some for next weekend. Do you think TJ's, Wegman's or Whole Foods would have it? If so, I can make a special trip on Tuesday. ...

    If you like the rose water, but just don't run across recipes that use it, try putting a drop in your tea. It's excellent in both iced and hot green tea.
