This Red Cabbage and Carrot Slaw practically screams fall – punctuated with sweet-tart chewy dried cranberries, a little extra crunch from the almonds and a zing from the cumin and mint, it really leans more towards Moroccan cuisine than Mexican or Asian or “good ‘ol” American like some of my other slaws. The flavors, though, adapt to a number of cuisines!
Are you like me and think the best thing about Thanksgiving is the leftovers? (Have you read my 12 Days of Turkey?) Ok Ms. Frau – always remember, it’s not really food, dogs, then people. The people have to come first, then the dogs, then the leftovers. But I am always looking for new ways to add to my leftover repertoire, and I think I might have the biggest, best and most complicated leftover yet with this Moroccan B’Steeya recipe. But it’s worth every loving moment put into it – and having leftover turkey and my Best Turkey or Chicken Broth made from the carcass makes it a lot easier!
Thanksgiving week is upon us, and I have yet to post a Thanksgiving recipe. I wanted to, but the universe must be conspiring against me! An apple strudel turned out to be a little lackluster (although we ate it all!) and needs to tweaked and remade. A coffee cake turned bizarre when all the Struesel topping sunk to the bottom. (We are working on finishing that one right now!)

Molasses Spice Cookies. If any single food item can define a season, it has to be this mixture of molasses and spices that heralds in late fall to early winter. Warm, earthy, just a bit soft and chewy, these Molasses Spice Cookies are perfection. If I do say so myself! And I do! :)
On an earlier post, the one on Almond Praline, I spoke of a master plan to make ahead components of a showstopper of a dessert, Roasted Pears with Lemon Cream and Maple Caramel Syrup. This gorgeous, tart, sunny lemon curd is just one component but also stands on its own as a fantastic recipe.
