The Reasons Y&H Felt Grateful This Thanksgiving

Once again Y&H spent Thanksgiving dinner with Mrs. Y&H's parents, and once again, a magnificent feast was laid before us — roast turkey, oyster dressing, crudites, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, green-bean casserole,  rolls, fudge pie, pecan pie, and all the wine we wanted to drink. As we pulled out of the driveway, fat and happy, here are a [...]

Happy Thanksgiving from Young & Hungry

Enjoy this day "marked by gorging oneself on the flesh of a gruesomely decapitated fowl."

Don’t Want to Cook For Thanksgiving? Drink Your Dinner This Year

Pilgrim’s Pride: Thanksgiving Side Dish, Part II

As we head into Thanksgiving, Y&H wants to help you eat like a pilgrim (a Native American, too, because we’re all about equal opportunity eating here).

The History of Deep-Fried Turkeys, Turduckens, and Honey-Baked Hams

Why does it not surprise Y&H that all three of these items have their roots in the South? The honey-baked ham segment, in particular, is quite fascinating, even though I'd rather eat the roadkill off an 18-wheeler's tires than a honey-baked ham. (Just kidding, Smithfield. Keep those PR letters to yourself please!)

How to Brine a Turkey

Y&H salutes Chow.com for this smart, straight-forward video on how to brine your turkey. Brining, of course, is a terrific way to avoid dry, tasteless, and under-seasoned birds that require a gallon of gravy to make them palatable. But as chef Michael Chiarello from Bottega in Yountville, Calif., points out, brining is no insurance against inferior turkey. Plenty of things can [...]
