Cook the Book, Thanksgiving Special: Sam Sifton and Epicurious

The year I forgot to add the sugar to the apple pie filling. It certainly LOOKED gorgeous...

Bear Naked's New Cluster Crunch Cereals: Honey Almond and Maple Nut

I agree Kashi Go Lean Crunch is great @steamsoldier, but some of those clusters are out of control! Is it just me, or do you often end up with a bowlfull of boulders that need to be hacked into smaller pieces with the edge of the spoon before you can safely eat them?

I am also a huge fan of Honey Bunches of Oats (Almond flavor is myfavorite). I could eat an entire box in one sitting.

Perhaps surprisingly, I would not choose the "just clusters" version of Honey Bunches of Oats that they came out with. I think the clusters are better when broken up against the "canvas" of the flakes, if you will. It's like when Gardetto's came out with the "Special Request" bag of just the pumpernickel bagel chips (does anyone else remember this?). Suddenly they were no longer quite as special....

Is the Thermapen worth it?

I made fun of my husband for wasting money when he bought it for me as a gift. I have since taken all of that back. The speed and accuracy it reads with will make your life so much easier in the kitchen. I use it to test WAY more than meat temperatures. It seriously it used almost daily. My husband's favorite application = making sure his beer is chilled to a low enough temperature before drinking :-)
