Thanksgiving is Coming!
Days like Thanksgiving and Christmas and your birthday are the ones when you're not supposed to "behave." There's a time and a place to splurge, and these are those times.
I've created a Thanksgiving Day Menu that's easy and delicious, so you can spend your time with your family and friends. It's designed to serve eight, and I've even created a shopping list for you to take to the store. Get your Thanksgiving Menu
Dr. Tim Says....
It’s holiday time, and that means food. I believe that you should splurge on holidays, but at the same time it’s just as easy to not overdo it as it is to eat everything in your path. One of the toughest places for people to stick to healthy eating habits is parties.
Here are a few ideas to help you eat well and eat healthy at the holidays: 5 Tips for Healthier Holiday Dining
Holiday Panna Cotta with Chocolate Cranberry Sauce
Featured Ingredient: Nutmeg
Nutmeg is sold both as the whole seed and ground. The seed is about an inch long and oval shaped with a light brown skin. Grinding your nutmeg fresh, like grinding any spice fresh, is far superior to any ground nutmeg that you can purchase.
I have a nutmeg grater. These come in a variety of styles but the one I have is made by Zyliss. It has a little cylinder that the nutmeg fits into and then is held in place with a spring. As you run the holder back and forth over the grater there�s no chance of grating your knuckles. A must for any serious chef. Zyliss Nutmeg Grater
