We see leftover poultry in your future. Chilly weather too.
So why not take them both on with this warming soup? Add some roast cauliflower to the mix and you’ll increase the comfort quotient even more.
Who knew you’d be giving thanks for leftovers?

Need meatless savor in a hurry? Something nutritious and comforting?
Say hello to lentil and cabbage curry. The hearty umami of lentils will tickle the taste buds of even the most confirmed carnivore.
Chew on that.

An easy, seasonal dessert for fall
Chilly weather and short days can be a downer. So whip up some cranberry cheer.
Cranberries are the iconic autumn fruit, arriving in our markets just as winter threatens. And they’re a staple on Thanksgiving tables in the US.
But they’re also wonderful in baked goodies (like this Cranberry Buckle), where their tart edge cuts through sweet, cakelike surroundings like a happy surprise.
So buckle up.

Smooth, perky flavor enlivens this bittersweet Martini variant
Ready for some retro? The Fin de Siècle will whisk you back to the golden age of cocktails.
But no need to reset your taste buds to 1920. This drink’s complex, bitter-tinged flavor would be right at home on today’s craft cocktail menus.
And you won’t need to use bootleg gin.

Easy, Tasty – and Ideal with Crackers, Crostini, or even Ice Cream
Roasted grapes? Yeah, they’re terrific all by themselves. But add chili crisp (a spicy Chinese condiment) and you have a powerful pairing.
We particularly like to use this combo in a tasty dip (which you can also use as a spread, topping, or sauce).
Prepare to smack your lips.

Deep flavor in this hearty main-course soup
Caramelized onions are smooth and mild, yet intensely flavored. And they make every other ingredient they touch taste much better.
They play a starring role in this Caramelized Onion, White Bean, and Tomato Soup. We like to ladle up big bowls of it for a main course, often served with a side of crusty bread. But you could serve smaller portions as a starter.
Even if onions make you cry, these will soothe your tears.

Savory, sweet, and spicy – and quick enough for weeknight dinner
Sweet grapes paired with savory sausage? Yup, it’s a classic.
This Italian dish is most often served as a simple sauté flavored with balsamic vinegar and sometimes garlic. But we like to combine it with pasta for an easy main course.
With a glass of wine, of course. Because grapes.
