We talk about the pressure to reinvent Thanksgiving. People like what they like.
Joy talks about how she has snapped out of her weeknight cooking slump. It’s vegetarian dinners. Two recipes in particular have floated her boat. Specifically Shredded Tofu and Shiitake Stir Fry and Trini Chana and Aloo. Marisa hearts Martha Rose Shulman for vegetarian recipe inspiration.
Marisa describes the adorable homemade food gift her father gives annually. (You will definitely want to steal this idea.) She also describes how to make homemade kahlua. Want more ideas? Check out Food Gift Love by Maggie Battista.
We wrap up with a conversation about local cranberries.
