Entertaining Eats


Need an ace up your sleeve this Thanksgiving?
Making your best meal or menu item for the next mandatory, family-fun dinner should be a piece of cake—and it can be—compliments of three great cookbooks offering simple, savoury, and sweet recipes under one cover.

Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting: these could be the sweetest words ever written, though the next ones could top them. Making this dessert is a piece of cake, thanks to the appropriately-named dessert book from award-winning culinary expert Camilla Saulsbury. Piece of Cake is filled with cake recipes that are all made in one bowl, so there is no fuss. It’s as easy as a mix, but the result is a delicious, homemade sensation.

Fan Fare! Best of Bridge CookbookIf you’re crying ‘fowl’ over Thanksgiving dishes to prepare this year, Fan Fare!, the newest volume in the Best of Bridge series has been released just in time. The classic cookbooks our mothers loved have come a long way since 1975, and we love their story: conceived by eight friends on a weekend getaway in the mid-70’s, the current releases of this hugely successful cookbook series are now hard covered (but still spiral bound inside just like the original versions of the books) and have sold over 3.2 million copies.

“Simple recipes with gourmet results” remains the Best of Bridge series’ motto, and when you’re facing a mountain of meat following Thanksgiving dinner, you’ll be grateful for Fan Fare’s Roasted Asparagus with Crunchy Lemon Topping recipe.
