22 Recipes for 8 Delicious Nights of Hanukkah

November 30, 2015 // Uncategorized

Hanukkah, like Thanksgiving, is primarily about food and family for most of us.

Karina's Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Bread without xanthan gum. So good.

A Tea Bread Slice That Tastes Like Pie? Yes please.

For the holidays!

I am forever looking for ways to bake with pumpkin (aren't you, Babycakes?). So I absolutely had to share our latest recipe, baked fresh and warm and tender and spicy, just this morning, filling our chilly apartment with the aroma of pumpkin pie.

It was simply too darn tasty to keep to ourselves.

We are, after all, in the thick of the season of gratitude and giving.

And the best part is- for many of us- this gluten-free recipe has nary a single gum.

No xanthan gum. No guar gum. No locust bean gum.

No weirdo ingredients.

Just a whole lotta YUM.


Here's all you need to know: You can transform your leftover Thanksgiving turkey into wonderfully crispy and juicy shreds that are a dead ringer for carnitas, minus all the lard and time involved. This is a technique I discovered by accident a few years back, when I decided to see what would happen if I fried up the shredded meat I'd just picked off the turkey carcass. Extreme deliciousness—that's what happened. Read More

I'm of the belief that Thanksgiving leftovers are almost better than the dinner itself: The stress of preparation is over, everyone's sufficiently relaxed to not be overly concerned with formalities, and you're free to revel together in the gluttony of plateless, napkin-less, post-feast feasting. And if you can save some leftovers until the next day, perhaps you'll feel refreshed and ready enough to tackle one of these 20 brilliant uses for them. Read More

For a holiday with a relatively fixed menu and, in most homes, an unrivaled predictability, Thanksgiving still manages to surprise us year after year. Whether it's a burnt turkey, one parent's dramatic antics, or an unforeseen tragedy, we've seen our share of Thanksgivings go horribly awry. Of course, that's not counting the triumphs—the rescued birds, the perfect expat's dinner, the communal moments you actually treasure, no matter how corny. In either case, the one thing Thanksgiving always is? Memorable. We asked the Serious Eats staff about the very best and worst Turkey Days they've experienced. Here's what they had to say. Read More
