These ricotta cheese cookies bake up cake-like, light and moist. They're always a favorite with adults because they're not too sweet, and the limoncello adds plenty of lemony tang without any pronounced alcohol flavor. Try serving them with espresso as a light dessert after a heavy meal.
Sea scallops are a great choice for making a fast weeknight meal. This recipe combines pungent citrus flavors with Thai sweet chili sauce, fresh cilantro and scallions to complement the inherent sweetness of the scallops. Serve with steamed white rice.
These easy baked flatbreads are a perfect way to use up leftover roast turkey (or chicken) without feeling like you're eating a rehash of the same meal. The sweet and spicy combination of curry powder, mango chutney, jalapeño and fresh cilantro adds lively, fresh flavor to the already cooked meat.
These oven-baked quesadillas are super simple to make and a great way to use up leftover turkey from your holiday dinner. We've given the turkey and cranberry sauce a whole new flavor profile by adding fresh cilantro, scallions, jalapeño peppers and the creamy, rich goodness of brie.
This otherwise classic pumpkin pie gets a little kick from some dark rum in the filling and a dollop of rum-spiked whipped cream. Molasses and a generous dose of spices balance out the rum and lend a lot of flavor to this pie without the need for a lot of sugar.
There are many differing opinions on how to roast a turkey so that it comes out moist, juicy and evenly cooked. We've tried a number of different brines, roasting methods, temperatures and times over the years and have come up with a few recipes that give us consistently good results. This is our most basic brined turkey recipe, tailored for fresh, minimally processed birds weighing 10 to 12 pounds (see our notes about larger turkeys). Serve with our Old-Fashioned Bread Stuffing as part of a classic turkey dinner.
When you're only serving a few people, opt for a mid-sized turkey breast instead of a whole bird to minimize preparation time and the amount of leftovers. This combination of herbs and butter spread under the skin resulted in moist and flavor-infused breast meat with crispy, golden skin.
This cake is a seasonally inspired twist on the more common pineapple version using a tangy combination of fresh cranberries and oranges. The cake itself is moist and buttery and flavored with tangy orange zest to complement the topping. The jewel tones of the cranberries make it the perfect finish for a holiday meal.
