It might seem strange at first, but wrapping your turkey in cheesecloth as it roasts locks in the moisture for extra-juicy meat. A simple glaze made from orange marmalade and a jus made with arrowroot round out the dish without any wheat flour, which most gravies would use.
We've taken the traditional BBQ side dish and turned it into an equally winter-friendly meal, ready in just 30 minutes and sure to refresh, thanks to its lemony vinaigrette.
Sweet potato wedges glazed with maple and vanilla are a healthier take on the traditional sticky-sweet marshmallow-topped casseroles. The sweet potatoes can be roasted up to a day in advance and reheated with the glaze just before serving. Spice-roasted pecans add crunch, but they are optional.
Fresh herbs retain much of their flavor in the freezer, making them great tools for infusing chicken breasts with vibrancy after a deep freeze.
Turnips stand in as a substitute for potatoes in this dish, while caramelized onions add a rich depth of flavor with the help of a little healthy fat.
Shallots, rosemary and farmstand-fresh blackberries turn ordinary chicken and potatoes into a showstopper of a meal.
This dish will impress your guests and make you look like a Food Network Star while being surprisingly easy.
This lemony roast stuffed with Parmesan and panko takes a bit of attention before it goes into the oven, but you’ll be rewarded with a turkey that avoids the last-minute muss and fuss of carving. After cooking, all you do is slice and serve.
Lean ground turkey and buttermilk-mashed Yukon gold potatoes give this seasonal family favorite all the flavor and creaminess you'd expect from a shepherd's pie - with none of the actual butter or cream. Translation: a low-cal, low-fat meal sure to soothe any wintertime craving, guilt free.
Baking in parchment keeps fish moist and makes cleanup practically effortless. Try substituting Pacific cod for similar results at a reduced cost, and reserve the second half of your fennel bulb for use in a salad: Try it with radicchio, toasted walnuts, cubes of pear and crumbled goat cheese.
