If you’re still scrambling to come up with a delicious dish that you can make in time for an early Thanksgiving dinner, we’ve got you covered.
Normally, hot topics like politics, along with religion and money, go against proper etiquette, notes expert Elaine Swann, but this year seems to be an exception.
New York-based fashion designer Jonathan Simkhai has designed dresses for First Lady Michelle Obama, Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett, and model-of-the-moment Gigi Hadid, but he also knows how to kick Thanksgiving off right with a crowd-pleasing appetizer: Buffalo Chicken Dip. “For the past few years, it’s been my signature Thanksgiving dish,” he says. “It is definitely the tastiest appetizer on the coffee table, and eating it with celery will make you feel only slightly less guilty!”

Despite what fashion might have you believe, leggings and sneakers are not always OK.
Thanksgiving is a time for family, vacation, and tradition. It’s also all about turkey, heaping portions of mom’s homemade stuffing, and impossible-to-resist pecan and pumpkin pies. Just as much as we look forward to the holiday, so too do we freak out about the excess calorie intake and what it will do to our bodies. It’s easy to find healthy recipes for the feast, or you can line up an after-turkey workout session, but is it really all worth it?

Fashion might be the furthest thing from your mind as you gear up to head home for the biggest eating day of the year. But you’d do well to think through your “what to pack” list now. The idea of hitting your family get-togethers and Friendsgivings in a form-fitting party dress might seem like a great idea now, but let’s be honest: There is no way we want to wear anything with a waist after we tear up a pecan pie. That’s why soft fabrics and easy silhouettes are your best friend right now.
When planning a big family meal, you want to accommodate friends and family with food allergies. Don’t assume you understand the dietary restrictions of a loved one with a food allergy.
By Caroline Lange If you’re ordering a turkey for Thanksgiving, you’re probably already thinking about how you’re going to prepare it, how many people there will be to feed, and what you’re going to serve alongside it. Whether the ceremonial bird is your Achilles’ heel or your pride and joy, it’s time to get going on it.

Photo credit: Emily Kate Roemer, ClintonKelly.com Let’s face it, cooking a giant Thanksgiving turkey is stressful. It jams up your oven and takes a long time. Plus, it’s unpredictable; the timer always seems to pop before the allotted cooking time, leaving you to wonder if it’s really done or dry as a bone. No more!

Seven pre-holiday workout moves from HBFit. (Photo: Benjamin Rosser) As we get closer and closer to Thanksgiving, the only thing on our mind is turkey, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. It’s inevitable that we’ll be consuming a lot, so we got to thinking about how to best prepare our bodies. Since limiting our intake of dessert (even of the gluten-free variety) is unlikely, we wanted to put together a workout that would properly prep us for the eating fest.
One nun was blessed with good tidings on last night’s Thanksgiving-themed episode of “Chopped.” Sister Alicia Torres was the big winner of Monday’s Food Network culinary competition show, winning $10,000 for her church, Chicago’s Mission of Our Lady of the Angels. Torres, 30, beat three other soup kitchen chefs by whipping together globally inspired dishes from a combination of Thanksgiving staples. Contestants were charged with transforming fresh, leftover, and candied versions of turkey, cranberry sauce, green beans, and mashed potatoes into a visually attractive and tasty appetizer, entree, and dessert. Torres whipped up turkey quesadillas and a salad with cranberry vinaigrette in the first round, and followed up with curried turkey and sweet potato cranberry hash for the entree round.

I have never been shy about loving to eat, which I understand can be an oxymoron for a fashion person. But when it comes to the holiday season, I turn eating into a true participant sport. When your mother’s feast resembles something along the lines of cruise ship buffet, you’ll not only feel like you have to – but will also want to – try everything put in front of you. So while you’re tapping out your calorie count into gastronomic numbers, you’ll need to know that there’s a clothing lifesaver within grasp, when THAT moment comes.
Aside from being delicious, having a salad at your holiday table adds some health benefits: raw vegetables are nutrient-dense and low in calories, and depending on the roughage you choose to include, they can also have “lots of fiber to fill you up,” explains Susan Albers, Psy.D., a specialist in eating issues, weight loss, body image concerns and mindfulness at the Cleveland Clinic Family Health Center.
