I think we will be having TG at our house this year, but possibly a small group, 6 to 8 people. Definitely will be doing a brined turkey. Last year I made baked mashed potatoe casserole with pancetta. Have the recipe at home. It will be worth making again. Or possibly a potato gratin with rosemary. Have been wanting to do that again, but with just two of us normally, it's way too much food. I think I will make some pumpkin bread, as it's been a long time since I made pumpkin bread. Also some banana bread for snacking. The banana bread recipe is one of Emeril's. I know he's not real popular here, but the banana bread is great! LOTS of butter and also has sour cream.

1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups canned pumpkin puree
GLAZE:
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 cup heavy cream

Beat eggs and sugar until blended. Beat in oil. Sift flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt into egg mixture. Fold in dry ingredients and pumpkin puree. Pour batter into pan and bake until a skewer inserted into center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then turn out onto rack to cool completely.

Just found out my sister is making her FABULOUS baked broccholi & cheese casserole for T'Day! YUMMMMM!!!
I have tried, but I can not make this dish like my sister can! It is to die for!
It's her thecnique, because I have followed her recipe, and it never comes out as good as hers!
It's even better the second day!

i came across a recipe for autumn apple cake in a hudson valley guide. i decided to do a trial run pre-thanksgiving. i haven't tasted it yet, but if it turns out worthwhile, i'll sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.


autumn apple cake

2 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
4 cups apple, chopped

beat first three ingredients until creamy. then combine next three. fold in the apples. pour into a bundt pan or 9x13 pan. bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Thanksgiving hasn't been the same since a friend introduced me to "Potato Filling" about 5 years ago... This stuff is so good it overshadows the rest of the meal! Have made it in massive quantities for hubby's office parties too & people were scraping the pans out! I NEVER cook with a ton of fat & salt & carbs... Except to make this for Thanksgiving & Christmas.... I will NEVER serve plain ol' mashed potatoes for a holiday meal again!

This recipe is exactly as it was given to me, but I've also made it with part butter & part olive oil & the difference was pretty minimal. White bread, wheat bread, whatever you like will work. I always use skim milk because I like it, but whatever you like to make mashed potatoes with is fine.

5 lb potatoes
1 bunch celery, diced
2-3 large onions, diced
3 sticks butter
2 eggs
1/2 loaf of bread
Milk
S&P

Make mashed potatoes with a whole stick of butter & plenty of milk and add 2 eggs. Beat them in with a hand mixer. Potatoes need to be fairly wet so they won't dry out when baked.

Sauté onions & celery in a stick of butter & dump into mashed potatoes. Melt another stick of butter & brown the bread cubes. Throw those into the potatoes when they're kinda crispy.

Add lots of salt & pepper. Mix it all together & put aside a small bowl to eat now because you've worked hard. The raw eggs haven't killed me yet, but you're on your own here...

Put in a baking pan (I use a disposable foil one) & cover with foil at 350 for about 1/2 hour or so. Take off the foil & bake a little longer until the top starts to brown a little.

Leftovers make a mean potato pancake, too!

--------------------
If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning.

i've made mashed potatoes with celery and onion before; it's delicious. your recipe sounds good, although i don't think my conscience would allow me to add all that butter... also, i just tried a small piece of the autumn apple cake. it's a keeper.

It's just a bechamel based cheese sauce with steamed broccoli added and then baked til bubbly...
she covers the top with slices of american cheese and then with panko crumbs mixed with melted butter for a topping...
I think the key is using mild cheddar (mild cheddar is a lot creamier than sharp or extra sharp) & real american cheese...
mixed 1/2 & 1/2...
My sisters recipe is a lot like many of my recipes...
we use the "that looks like about enough" measuring system for dishes we make a lot...
it is wonderful!

I think where I go wrong with her recipe...
I make the cheese sauce in a pot on the stove...
whereas she uses a double boiler to make the cheese sauce...
I just have no patience for a double boiler with that much volume...

No kidding, I'm the one who buys 96% fat free ground beef & has to scrub my cast iron with Brillo because I don't use enough oil to keep stuff from sticking! But you don't really need that much butter (2 sticks, or 1 stick plus olive oil for sautéing the veggies) would be plenty... AND it makes almost 10 POUNDS of finished product, so per serving it's not so bad for once or twice a year!

Hey, could that cake be done in something other than a bundt pan? I don't have one & there's not one square inch of storage left in my gadget closet for anything new!

I bet it would do well in a bread or loaf pan as well as the 9x13 mentioned. Or, if you had any of those small, individual loaf pans...that might work. This would probably freeze well too as I can't really eat a whole cake before it would become a science experiment.

Ooo, individual loaf pans are PERFECT!! Great for sending home with guests after dinner, too, great idea!

Edit: duuhh, I skimmed right over the "9x13" part of the original recipe...

ok, i think you've convinced me. any particular potato you prefer for this recipe? i usually opt for yukon gold over russet when making mashed potatoes. the autumn apple cake was brought to the office today; it is well received, although i should mention that no one ever complains about the boss.

I never met a potato I didn't like, but Yukon Golds DO seem to make exceptionally good mashed potatoes.

God, I'm starving today. {{{sigh}}}

Oh Boy... you and I have different tastes for sure Dharma!
I don't like Yukon Golds...
They are just OK when roasted but they get way too glutenous when you make whipped potatos...
They come out almost like a paste...
I prefer a mixture of Eastern White or Red Potatos, mixed about 3:1 with a good Idaho Baking Potato...
The Eastern potatos for flavor and creaminess, the Idaho to add fluffiness...
mix with sour cream, chopped chives & mashed roasted garlic! and real UNSALTED BUTTER!!! YUMMMMMMM!!!
S&P to taste...

Hahahaha! My mashed white potatoes tend to come out pasty! I think part of the issue is that I tend to boil them to DEATH (I'm easily sidetracked!), so I probably drain off a lot of the excess starch from the Golds, whereas it likely just disintegrates the whites & makes them almost rice-y.

Also I think mashing/whipping is a fine line between "just right" and "overworked". If they're pasty, they're overworked, no matter what kind they are; some just require less than others. I'm famous (infamous?) for doing this with dough, and it creates a lovely substance akin to bricks.

But again, there is no potato I dislike, so if they come out gluey or lumpy or creamy or flaky... I love 'em all!

THAT we agree on!

Now, I tend to be from the skins-on, leave 'em lumpy camp... (as long as I didn't boil them into oblivion)... y'all?

I like lumpy sometimes and really smooth & creamy whipped sometimes...
sometimes with skins on, sometimes peeled...
Depends on what I'm serving & my mood...

That sounds good, I just found this one and I'm going to give it a try:


Ingredients

4 large naval oranges, peeled and cut into chunks
4 large apples, cored and cut into chunks
1 (12 ounce) package frozen cranberries
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin mix
1 cup white sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

Place the oranges in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until chopped, 2 or 3 pulses. Remove and place the chopped oranges into a large bowl. Chop the apples in the food processor for 2 or 3 pulses, and place in the bowl. Chop the cranberries in the food processor for 2 or 3 pulses, and place in the bowl with the oranges and apples.

Stir the gelatin mix, sugar, and chopped pecans into the chopped fruit, and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.

Tucker...
YES!!!I have made that one (or at least one very similar) in the past! It's very good!
I think the only change I made was to substitute either dried Cranberries or Black Currants for the raisnis...
I always prefer currants to raisins...

We made this for Thanksgiving and it was a very good addition to the table! I think it will be a permanent addition! Thanks! I might think about preparing it in a mold or something next time, to fancy it up.

So glad you liked this -it is also great on turkey sandwiches. I am not sure it has the right gelatin ratio to mold, but is certainly worth a try. We always put it in a pretty cut glass dish.

So, you think it would mold better if there was more gelatin?

i ended up making georgia's green bean casserole, dharma's potatoes, banana chocolate chip bread, roasted brussel sprouts, jalapeno cornbread, autumn apple cake, and a couple of refreshing cocktails. i will try to get recipes and photos posted later this week. dharma's potatoes were ridiculously delicious... must be all that butter.

Wow! Can't wait to see pictures! I'm going to try some new ones for Christmas- especially that apple cake!

Glad the potato filling came out well! I only used 1 1/2 sticks of butter in mine but I think 2 is probably the minimum for that absurdly luxurious flavor! They were good but lacked that "omg!" factor.

If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I do. I think I would add a packet of plain gelatin or maybe just 1/2 packet.

I'd rather get the gelatin (collagen) from turkey and/or chicken wing tips... probably the best source of natural gelatin there is...

My very similar recipe calls for a large pkg of strawberry jello, 1 Cup boiling water, 1 can whole cranberry (which has thickener in it as well), 1 can mandarin oranges, 1 15 oz can crushed pineapple and 1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped nuts (peacans or walnuts work well). I always drain both the mandarin oranges and the crushed pinapple and reserve their comingled juices, then I add about half the saved amount of liquid to the mixture. Spoon everything in to a 6 cup mold that has been sprayed with pam and let set overnight. I never had any problem with it setting up or holding its shape during a meal. It is a must at any turkey meal and very refreshing.

It should be two small packages of Jello or one large package of Jello, not one small.


Chunky Sweet Cranberry Relish with Jello
Preparation Time:10 min

Cooking Time:15 min

Ingredients
2 small packages raspberry jello
1 cup sugar (I usually reduce to 1/2 cup)
1 cup boiling water
2 cups cranberries, chopped fine
2 cups chopped apples, peeled & chopped fine (I like Granny Smith)
2 or 3 stalks of celery, chopped fine
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Instructions

1.Dissolve jello and sugar in boiling water.
2.Chop cranberries, apples, celery and walnuts in food processor - I usually do this about a cup at a time in my mini chopper - chop pretty fine.
3.Add the fruits and veggies to the jello. Chill. You can put this in a festive mold, if desired.

ina's jalapeno cheddar cornbread recipe

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/jalapeno-cheddar-cornbread-recipe/index.html

i usually make these as muffins, but time limiting i threw it into a 9x13 casserole.


smashed cauliflower

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/smashed-cauliflower/detail.aspx

some reviews said that it was like soup... i should've heeded the reviews. i actually strained this with cheesecloth. taste was still very good.


banana bread w/ chocolate chips

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-chip-banana-bread-ii/detail.aspx


georgia's green bean casserole

not sure if i used the wrong casserole size... it was good, but for the 8x8 surface area on top, too much cheese for my tastes.


dharma's potato filling pre-baking

this was a big hit. this will be part of my thanksgiving tradition. i kept it chunky, but may dice celery and bread smaller next time. LOVED this recipe. thanks again.

i also made the autumn apple cake again. not sure what i did different, but this time it did not come out very well... it was pale and taste off. it may have been the gin cocktail that p made me... he makes a stiff drink.

homemade vanilla ice cream was also made; it went so fast that i forgot to photo it. sorry.

Actually my recipe calls for one small package of jello. It is meant to be a relish not a molded or congealed salad.

L, the green bean casserole works better in a 9X13 pan...I should have specified that. Still, your picture looks perfect; I recognized it immediately!

what's funny is that as i was making it, i had a feeling it should be a bigger casserole size since the bean and cheese layer were pretty proportionate. but my rule with a recipe is to make it as is the first time, tweek next time. now i know. can't wait to do this all over again next year!
