Now is the time for the Moraine community to give thanks for our abundance of library resources. Items in our collection can help you make the holiday a delicious one whether you’re hosting, contributing a dish or cooking for yourself.
The Nov/Dec issue of Cook’s Illustrated will give you EVERYTHING on turkey: buying, prepping, cooking, carving AND dealing with leftovers. Also, light, loose and crispy sounds delicious right– find out how to make a rustic bread stuffing that’s exactly that.
Not to be outdone, Martha Stewart Living is full of ideas for the great American holiday: 2 tasty turkey recipes (apple-cider-glazed or herb-rubbed), 17 sides (including some you can make ahead!) and a dozen desserts (including vegan and gluten-free). You’re not good at setting the mood? This issue has you covered with easy and elegant table setting ideas too.
Did you gain a few pounds just reading about those recipes? Don’t worry, Cooking Light has a fantastic DOUBLE issue for Thanksgiving with a full holiday cookbook. There are pages and pages of everything you’ll need- sips and snacks, gravy, sides, rolls, desserts, even leftovers are accounted for.
Are you into big Thanksgiving meals, but meat is not your thing? Vegetarian Times is a resource to be treasured: this month’s issue will give you plenty meatless tasty traditions. You’ll also find some holiday favorites from some top American chefs for side dishes.
All of the above are shelved on the stands in front of the coffee shop. Browse through them on your next break!
