  1. I just got back from my morning walk. Thank you for making me laugh out loud with the story about Colbert/Goop/the oat flaker!

    I discovered a good way to sweeten cranberry sauce slightly while making it several times a year for my son: a good dollop (maybe quarter cup?) of jam/jelly/preserves. Raspberry is great and orange marmalade makes a ton of sense, too.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

    1. That’s a brilliant idea. I can’t believe it never occurred to me to take jam and use that as part of cranberry sauce!

  2. I loved hearing about Gwyneth Paltrow and the grain flaker! I just love your podcast and look forward to it every week.

  3. Thank you for your podcast- which I discovered only recently -so glad to have found you in these isolating times!
    Joy, since you love hummus so much, I thought I would share a variation on the original recipe, and one that I learned from my Armenian grandmother: replace one part of garbanzos with one part of roasted and pureed pumpkin (or canned pumpkin) and decorate with sumac, roasted pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds for a tasty holiday treat.
