There are a lot of things to get done on Thanksgiving. But with all of the crucial tasks to take care of — making sure the turkey is fully cooked, ensuring the rolls don’t burn, keeping the gravy warm and lump-free — there are some smaller things that we might forget about, like tying the turkey legs!
When my husband and I were in college in Boston, we made all-too-frequent stops at the Otto Pizza on campus. The New England pizza chain was nestled right in the middle of Boston University amongst a line of beautiful brownstones, dining halls, food spots (Dunkin’ included, of course), and classroom buildings. We’d walk over after a long day of class and order a 12-inch Mashed Potato, Bacon, and Scallion pizza to share. It’s Otto’s most popular pie.

The Barbiecore trend has been hot recently, with the Barbie influence leading to pops of pink appearing in everything from decor to cookware. But that splash of bright and cheerful color does not have to be limited to style choices — it can actually be quite fun when incorporated into sweet treats, too.
If you’re a fan of French toast, but never imagined that this breakfast favorite could be transformed into a savory dish (like waffles), thanks to Chef Josh Elkin, we now have the perfect recipe for you.

Did you know that vanilla wafers do not need to come from a box? It’s true! Vanilla wafers are simple cookies that, like many baked goods, are even better when they’re homemade. These homemade vanilla wafers are petite, crisp, and bursting with a vanilla flavor that the store-bought version cannot compete with. Here’s how to make better-than-the-box vanilla wafers.

Sometimes, my job as a food editor forces me to do some truly objectionable work. For instance, last year I had the absolute displeasure of trying four of the internet’s most popular focaccia recipes and judging them for our focaccia recipe showdown. Poor me, right? All jokes aside, that showdown taught me so much about focaccia making, and I still use many of the techniques I learned to this day.
Nuts play a prominent role in Indian sweets and Christmas desserts, taking center stage in treats like marzipan, milk creams, cakes, and cookies. Served alongside Christmas cutout cookies, these milk-based cookies are one of my favorite holiday baked goods from when I was growing up. I used to make them at my grandma’s house alongside my cousins.
Le Creuset’s Massive Sale Includes Deep Discounts on Dutch Ovens, Skillets, and More Giftable Cookware
Black Friday approaches, and now’s the time when you can finally bring home some of those iconic kitchenware pieces that you’ve been dreaming about. One brand that’s always on my personal wish list? Le Creuset, duh! Every kitchen needs at least one piece of Le Creuset’s iconic cookware — not only are they stunning to look at, but their top-notch construction makes them an absolute pleasure to cook with. While you can score some classic Le Creuset faves at mega-retailers including Amazon, Williams Sonoma, and QVC, you’ll find the largest selection (by far) of discounted Le Creuset pieces on the brand’s own online store. I’m talking a signature Dutch oven for nearly half off, a signature casserole dish for 20 percent off, and tons more amazing deals. Take a look at our favorite discounted cookware, serveware, and more below, and shop the entire sale here.
Refrigerators are kind of an anomaly. One minute, they’re working just fine. Then, after a decade of going strong, they start leaking, the lights flicker off, and it’s all downhill from there. At least, that’s what happened to my refrigerator this past summer. We tried to revive it, calling a handyman who seemingly had it back up and running for good. But, I’m here to tell you, once those initial problems crop up, there’s a good chance it’s too late to pull out the metaphorical defibrillators, especially if your fridge is getting up there in age. Instead of spending hundreds to fix the appliance (only for it to likely stop working again) you might be better off just buying a new one. Now’s the time to do it, anyway! We’ve found a bunch of amazing deals on the top brands on the market, with some of our favorite retailers offering early Black Friday discounts. Whether you want the latest model or a fridge to fit into your small kitchen, there’s something here for everyone.
In my opinion, upside-down cakes are some of the best desserts around. Not only are they fun to make and indulge in, but they also create a much less time-consuming version of some of my favorite layered or topping-heavy desserts. And thanks to Sarah Fennel of Broma Bakery, I may have found a recipe perfect for the holidays and beyond.
With Thanksgiving days away, excitement is high and stores are full as shoppers scramble to snag last-minute items to make the big day a special one. As stakes are naturally high for Thanksgiving dinner, it’s understandable how one can forget a crucial item to complete their signature dish or meal. Even more normal is you questioning whether or not your favorite grocery store will be open on the holiday to go pick up said item.

Welcome to our family’s sugar cookie recipe! This is our go-to Christmas cookie, Hanukkah cookie, Halloween cat cookie, Valentine’s Day heart cookie, the cookie I’ll make with Bernie to bring to school on her birthday, and passport-shaped cookie in the event I have to try and sweet talk someone at the passport office in order to get mine renewed the day before I’m supposed to fly to Korea for the Olympics. (It turns out government officials can’t accept cookie bribes. But they did renew my passport in time, and I did fly to Korea, and I did watch Mirai land that triple axel in real life!!!)
This Powerful, Cordless Handheld Vacuum Makes Suctioning Up Pet Hair a Breeze (Bonus: It’s On Sale!)
Kitchn received compensation for this post, which was written and edited independently by our editorial team. As much as I’d like to think that I have advanced fashion styling abilities, the truth is that I just wear all-black outfits almost everywhere I go. Black just makes you look effortlessly cool and put-together from head to toe. That is, unless your ensemble is covered in pet hair. As the owner of a white Pomeranian, I failed to anticipate how many lint rolling papers I’d go through during my 12 years as a dog mom. I mean, Scotch-Brite should basically sponsor me at this point.
There are so many incredible local foods to love when visiting New Orleans, and fried oysters are definitely at the top of the list. But if you can’t visit the iconic Casamentos for their fried oysters, or the High Hat Café for the best fried oyster po’boy you will ever taste, it is still possible to enjoy these decadent treats right at home. All you will need is a dozen oysters plus a few simple ingredients for breading and frying the oysters.
Walking into my childhood home anytime between early November and New Year’s Day was like stepping into a caramel factory. Pots of bubbling sugar would be on the stove, wrapping stations were set up with paper strewn about, and the distinct scent of buttery, burnt sugar would perfume every room. My mother ran a candy business out of our house so she could stay home and raise me and my sister. Her caramels became a hit sensation in the surrounding neighborhoods. People would order pounds of them to give to loved ones during the holidays.
When I think about a cookie that signifies family, there really isn’t a singular recipe that comes to mind — nor is there a precious, butter-stained index card passed down from generations gone by. Rather, it’s a combination of aromas, flavors, comforting traditions, and nostalgic ingredients that transport my senses and taste buds to a true time and place, giving me that familiar feeling of belonging.
Samsa is a crispy, savory pastry baked in a tandyr oven, traditionally from Uzbekistan and other Central Asian countries. You usually see the handmade laminated dough filled with chunks of lamb and onion, but my favorite filling happens to be pumpkin, cumin, and ghee. Something magical happens to the texture of the squash as it steams in the pocket of buttery pastry. The butter and cumin infuse a ton of flavor into the filling, and the contrast between the soft filling and the crispy, crunchy outer pastry shell is extremely satisfying.
This unremarkable “cherry wood cave with black plastic counter tops” in the suburbs of Chicago was transformed into a dreamy kitchen, full of personality and luxurious finishes. The homeowner spent months searching for the perfect interior designer, someone who would bring authenticity to the project, and the wait was clearly well worth it. A note: before you get too jealous of the fabulous kitchen you’re about to see, know that the homeowner confessed to totally blowing the budget!
