    I'm not familiar with Rebar and I am familiar with recent studies which no longer demonize fat per se.

    However I have assumed that they were about the extremely faddish no fat or extremely low...

    The calculation of nutritional information through unrealistically small portions is why I never really did whole "lite" baking. I know there are people who might be able to have a pan of these and...

    I read the book and it has some interesting recipes. If you like the recipes posted on her blog, you would probably like the book as well. My problem is that I find cookbooks unusable. I prefer to...

    OK - I thought maybe I was missing something.

    I have read about places where you go and the food is already prepped and so you just assemble the "meal" to take home and freeze. That made sense to...

    You shouldn't use Sweet onions for this recipe. They have a higher water content and don't caramelize well. As Leeham posted, Ina's recipe also advises against sweet onions.

    Crockpot Caramelized Onions

    Now here's a crockpot recipe that is highly functional - at least for me as tending to a pan of onions being caramelized is tedious - and a lot of recipes do call for them. Ina Garten's Onion Dip and...

    Let me clarify that I don't mean "no prep" as I have no interest in recipes that involve plunking some protein and pouring cream of mushroom soup over it - with perhaps some frozen veggies added at...

    Not to hijack but this seems like a very odd business - I am supposed to shlep veggies, meat etc to someone's house for the purpose of buying spices to put in the food I have prepped? This seems like...

    I think food writers/magazines need to have some kind of "hook" for Thanksgiving because the menu is pretty much standard among everyone in the US with slight variations.

    I can see this kind of...

    That might be a side for roast chicken or other plain roast for another occasion but I think many people would want the ability to ladle out their own stuffing from a big bowl rather than have it...

    I don't generally serve anything else with this but I also up the veggies. I will use parsnips and often string beans. I don't add the string beans at the beginning. I like the simplicity of a true...

    Wow those look really good - far better tasting I am sure than the one's I grew up on. :D

    But I can't imagine these as a side or appetizer for a Thanksgiving dinner unless she was doing them as a...

    Congratulations on your weight loss - that's a great accomplishment.

    I did WW Thanksgiving dinners many years and I found it to be easier than a lot of other "eating" situations because the basic...

    I've got a small space as well. I had considered the Breville but it had a larger footprint than the Cuisinart and also seemed to require more free space around it.

    I found a wooden chopping board...

    Might not be what you're looking for but I got the Cuisinart convection toaster oven and I'm blown away by how good it toasts. It's fairly big and so it also functions almost exclusively as my oven....

    I agree with the others that if you are buying for the sake of buying, it's time to stop and I suspect the others would feel the same way.

    That said, if you like to bake, sending a package with...

    Why don't you reserve a bird with the butcher? Most of the butcher shops and even the better supermarkets take advance orders.

    The Ina Garten Outrageous Brownies makes a huge amount and they are quite easy. There are some good variations.

    You can't go wrong with cookies either and most drop cookies are easily doubled or...

    I read the first recipe and it seems to complicate the process since you have to parboil the pasta and THEN cook it in the wine to get the intense flavor and color. Why not just simplify it by...

    I don't understand why you would want to do that. The point of using wine as the liquid is for taste and color.

    If you add it in the end, it just becomes part of the sauce.

    I think Butterball is the wisest decision. It's essentially foolproof and eliminates the need to brine and produces a tasty juicy bird. I've had the more expensive fresh - organic and heritage and I...
