Meal Plan for November Week 4

This month, we have meal plans from Marta Rivera. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins, and Army wife – and she is also one of our Simply Recipes recipe testers!

Thanksgiving is almost here! Leading up to this momentous day are several days full of prep work. Oh, and we still gotta eat!

We always invite to Thanksgiving dinner any soldiers from our unit who can't go home for various reasons – we can't leave them to eat pizzas in the barracks! You probably have your Thanksgiving menu all planned out already, but just in case, I'm sharing my menu for that meal, too.

How to Make Classic Tiramisu

by Cindy Rahe

Tiramisu

I’ve always thought of tiramisu as a “restaurant dessert.” You know – one of those fancy desserts that you would never think to make at home.

This is mostly because tiramisu is one of two desserts that my mom always orders at restaurants (the other being crème brulee; she likes a classic). I’d honestly never encountered tiramisu outside of a restaurant setting!

But a few years ago this changed when we hosted our first Christmas dinner and my mom requested tiramisu for dessert. I was definitely a little fearful, but went into “what’s the worst that could happen?” mode.

It turns out that making a good tiramisu at home isn’t really all that difficult. It really just requires a little patience, some solid whisking, and a few tips to help you along!

4 Ways to Make Classic Mashed Potatoes on Any Schedule

by Carrie Havranek

4 Ways to Make Mashed Potatoes

Whether you’re planning your meal days in advance or only have a half an hour before guests arrive, rest assured that any of these options for making our favorite side dish are delicious. Stove-top, make-ahead, slow cooker, or pressure cooker, just pick the mashed potato recipe that works best for you, your schedule, and your kitchen.

Here are four ways to enjoy some spuds — all of them classic, creamy and mashed.

 

Chili Mac and Cheese

by Aaron Hutcherson

Beef Chili Mac and Cheese

Who can resist two favorite comfort foods combined into one?

This recipe pairs cheesy goodness of macaroni and cheese with the onions, tomatoes, and spiced ground beef of a pot of beef chili. The result is the ideal meal to keep you warm on a chilly night.

Pressure Cooker Turkey with Dijon Gravy

by Coco Morante

Pressure Cooker Turkey with Dijon Gravy

Raise your hand if you prefer dark meat turkey. It's not just me, right?

There's so much more flavor in the legs, thighs, and wings, and I'm happy to eat them at Thanksgiving — or anytime I can find them in the market.

(And don't worry if white meat is your thing — you can use bone-in half breasts for this recipe, too.)

Coconut Banana Cream Pie

by Cindy Rahe

Coconut Banana Cream Pie

When it comes to big holiday meals like Thanksgiving and Christmas, I am a big believer in multiple desserts. Specifically pies. It just doesn't feel festive to me without some variety.

This Coconut Banana Cream Pie, a hybrid of coconut cream pie and banana cream pie, is

Since this Coconut Banana Cream Pie is actually two-for-one deal — coconut cream pie and banana cream pie — it’s perfect for those of us (ahem, me) who want a little bite of every holiday dessert offering.

Potato Latkes

by Sheryl Julian

Potato Latkes

Latkes, which are wonderfully crisp potato pancakes, are the specialty of the Jewish holiday Hanukkah. Every year, my dad would fry latkes (pronounced LOT-kuz) in a skillet of hot oil, but it bothered him that his batter of grated potatoes would turn gray so quickly from exposure to the air.

My father was an engineer with chemist envy, and there wasn’t anything he couldn’t figure out with a little trial and error, so he decided to solve this latke problem once and for all.

 

11 Urgent Questions about Roasting a Turkey

by Carrie Havranek

Roast Turkey

Most of us only roast a turkey once a year, so we don’t get a lot of practice doing it. Invariably, every year some urgent questions come up about the process — whether it's your first or fiftieth time doing it.

You've got this. Never fear! Here are some answers to questions you may have:

Meal Plan for November Week 3

This month, we have meal plans from Marta Rivera. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins, and Army wife – and she is also one of our Simply Recipes recipe testers!

My family's favorite holiday is fast approaching! We're a bunch of foodies and Thanksgiving is considered a high holiday around here.

It's easy to get off track with homemade meals given all the excitement in the air, but I won't be thwarted! I rely on my menu plans more than ever in the latter part of the year.

This week, I'm all about menus whose ingredients can serve double-duty in next week's holiday meal as well – like chopped onions and even mashed potatoes. They can be prepped for this week, but also used in recipes for Turkey Day.

Here’s a look at what I’m planning for this week!
