Not to brag, but we at Epicurious are very good at giving gifts. Below are a few of the kitchen and cooking gifts we’re planning to give to our friends and families this year. Whether you’re aligned with David’s love of dates or empathize with Joe’s longing for drinks out of real, actual coupe glasses (remember bars? I’m thinking I’ll get a set, plus a bottle of gin to go with! I’ll encourage a swap by sending a brand new GreenPan, which I’ve been using for my eggs every morning this year.

Searching for Etsy gifts can be a bit overwhelming: you know, the hand-carved wooden spoons, muted linen napkins, and speckly sand-colored ceramic mugs that are hiding on their somewhere. But you might also just end up with a search page full of bridesmaid gifts with that curly “live laugh love” script emblazoned across each one. The result: 26 Etsy gifts anyone would be lucky to receive. If it’s a unique looking mug you’re after, there is really no better place than Etsy (especially if you love that speckled, neutral-toned minimalist look). Beyond mugs, Etsy also has excellent dishware: The pasta bowls, which I love for everything from salad to braised chicken, are at the top of my list.

A Lemony Cranberry Pie For a Brighter Thanksgiving

A Lemony Cranberry Pie For a Brighter Thanksgiving

Posted in All Recipes

What I will point out, however, is that the easiest pie you’ll ever make for Thanksgiving is this lemony cranberry number. The cranberry pie recipe comes from Epi contributor Sarah Jampel, who adores chess pie and was looking to offer a Thanksgiving option that’s as easy as clafoutis—the eggy fruit-studded French dessert. What makes this Thanksgiving pie a true standout, though, is the cranberries. The result is a pie with a crackly—nearly crusted—golden top adorned with jewellike pops of bright red cranberry. It’s a simple setup devised to make Thanksgiving 2020 a deliciously calm holiday, but if you find yourself turning to it (and to this cranberry pie recipe) again in years to come, we wouldn’t be surprised.

Chicken has a terrible reputation for drying out in the oven, but with chicken thighs you don't need to worry. These boneless chicken thighs first get marinated in an easy honey mustard-esque sauce that makes them so juicy and flavorful. The longer you let your chicken marinade the better they will be. If you only have time for a 30 minute marinade, leave the chicken out at room temperature. We Think our Classic Roasted Chicken is pretty much perfect!

[...] Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in the US contains the artificial food dyes Yellow 5 and Yellow 6. These unnecessary—yet potentially harmful—dyes are not in Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in other countries, including the UK, because they were removed due to consumer outcry." Lisa Leake, a mom and 100DaysofRealFood.com blogger, and Vani Hari, an aunt and Foodbabe.com blogger, both share the reasons for their campaign on “Starting Point” this morning.
