Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

Despite the radio silence over the last few months, we’ve been busy in the kitchen! Here’s a bit of what we’ve been up to…

Yotam Ottolenghi's risotto recipe includes charring the eggplant over an open flame.

After an epic apple bagel fail, we managed to perfect our recipe.

We loved Ottolenghi's simple pear-goat cheese crostini so much, we made them three times in a few weeks!

We also started some Christmas crafting, which included a pillow tutorial with the wonderful Alexis over at Kreatelier. This was my first time sitting behind a sewing machine and I took home this masterpiece!

And of course, it wouldn’t be a holiday without some decorated sugar cookies! This year, I went with Sugarbelle’s brown sugar recipe and tried my hand at some turkey heads (inspired by the Bearfoot Baker). Ta-da!

  1. These all look delic, Meg!
    What recipe did you use for the cookies? I’ve been trying to find a good icing recipe but haven’t found one that I’m totally sold on yet…

      Thanks, Helene!

      I use cookie blogger The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle’s recipe, which uses meringue powder in lieu of egg whites. If you head on over to my Cookie Chemistry post, it will show you my scaled down version and bring you to her original recipe via a hyperlink. She also has a ton of icing tutorials. These were my best batch yet!
