A Thanksgiving Cornucopia

November 21st, 2009

Squash VarietyI’ve been posting over at Amazon’s Al Dente blog this week. So you might check out my posts regarding the Butterball Turkey Talk Line, BBC Good Food, and Epicurious.com.

All of these online resources offer solid recipes and useful tips. They also have new features designed  to make the holidays easier and more enjoyable. Be sure to check them out.Other sites I like are Taste of Home and The Vegetarian Times.

There’s so much I’d like to write about this week,   but time is running short, so I’ll simply pose this question…Did you know that a dull knife is more dangerous than a sharp one? Indeed it is, because the cook tends to exert more pressure on a dull knife. Inevitably, this causes the knife to slip under the pressure.  So, sharpen those knives before you start to slice, dice, and carve!!

And,  if you can’t bear to slice and dice those craggy winter squash even if your knife is sharp, preheat the oven, poke the squash, and shove them in the oven until tender!
