For home cooks (and the eaters who love them!), there's no better time than the stretch between Thanksgiving and New Year's. There are turkeys to roast, potatoes to mash, cookies to bake, and cocktails to shake! Here, at our loooong table, you'll find the recipe you need to whip up a simple, spectacular meal for any and all of the season's feasts. And remember: No matter the size of your group, or whether you're gathering in person or on Zoom, being with the people you love and appreciating what you've got is always worth celebrating.
