Thanksgiving comes with its own set of questions: How many cooks can fit in the kitchen? How do you feed a large crowd a sizeable whole turkey along with all the sides and serve everything at once? A 15 pound turkey usually takes up two thirds of a normal size oven for a good 4 to 5 hours.

The spring holidays of Easter and Passover will soon be here, along with all of the traditions we love and savor. Each holiday has its unique features; however, both have a versatile and delicious common denominator. The egg, a symbol of new life and rebirth, makes its way to celebrations of Passover, beginning March 30, and Easter, April 1. The age-old question, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" sheds new light during the spring holidays and has gotten way more complicated.

As the new year settles upon us, we reflect on the past and plan for the future. When you raised your glass to toast the New Year, the food-minded gourmand might have thought just that: toast.
A toast takes many forms. We know 2017 was the year of the ever-popular avocado toast: Crusty bread, toasted evenly, topped with mashed avocado, a squeeze of lemon and a dusting of sea salt.
