Sherry (sherry baby!) can come out any night of the week - if you stock your bar right.
"Since it’s fortified and often bold in flavor and aroma for a wine, it appeals to people who are more accustomed to drinking plain spirits."
Five Reasons that Sherry is a Must-Have at the Bar: Dan Greenbaum
Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday. It’s the one day of the year that’s off-limits on my calendar for anything other than family, dear friends and my complete and total domination of the kitchen. No work, no crazy international travel schedule; it’s all about bringing loved ones together to share an amazing traditional holiday meal complete with turkey, stuffing, potatoes, the works.
This year, however, work and my favorite holiday collided. My team and I at EarthEcho International, the environmental education nonprofit I co-founded with my mother and sister, had just taken the wraps off of a new tool for educators and students to help them explore the environmental and health impact of daily food choices called What’s On Your Fork?
In fact, the main element of this resource is a guide created in collaboration with the Meatless Monday campaign to help students start each week with options for healthy, environmentally friendly meat-free alternatives. You can see where I might be feeling a little conflicted about my poultry-centered food extravaganza.

Not our gumdrop buttons! - November 21 is National Gingerbread Day.
Calling all man-shaped cookie cutters and edible houses: today is all about getting a jump on one of our favorite ways to herald the holiday season and making your house smell oh-so-incredibly good.
The confusing thing about gingerbread is that it can mean all kinds of things, but the best part is they're all scrumptious. Some folks like to bake up a sweetly spiced, moist loaf of actual bread, while others dig out their cookie cutters and start punching out crispy cookies.
