Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.

Blueberry Lemon Smoothie


This blueberry lemon smoothie is not one of those smoothies in which I try to get you to sneak in veggies. It's simply blueberries, fresh lemon zest, and a few basic ingredients. I love to combine blueberries with lemon in my dessert recipes, and while I've been on a smoothie kick lately and had leftover lemons and blueberries from a recent recipe shoot, I thought hmmm blueberry lemon smoothie! It turned out quite delicious. I'm dying to try it in some popsicle molds as a frozen treat. If you make it with unsweetened almond milk, it's quite low in calories, and I used Stevia to make it free of added sugar. I've found that anything made with blueberries or chocolate do a great job of covering up that Stevia aftertaste.

INGREDIENTS
  • one cup unsweetened almond milk (or regular milk)
  • one large ripe banana
  • 1 & 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
  • zest of two lemons (be careful not to get the white pith - it'll make the smoothie taste bitter)
  • juice of one lemon
  • one packet Stevia

*Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
