    If you are remotely into condiments (and who isn't), you're well-versed in the school of Sriracha or, as it is also known, rooster sauce. This Thai chili sauce with salt, tang, and sweet spice is so good, it's developed its own following. Ask around, and you're sure to meet a wide-eyed devotee.

    I'm absolutely one of them, and while I don't put the tasty sauce on EVERYTHING, I've definitely put it on more foods than you'd think. The weirdest: Cereal. I do not advise this, nor do I feel the need to explain my daring do to you, gentle reader. But don't let my foolishness stop you, mother truckers.

    Oh my goodness, it's so COLD out there! Can you think of a better food to warm your body and soul than a hearty, delicious, and -- yes -- extremely kid-friendly soup?

    Tomato soup is a notoriously easy one to make, a quality that comes in handy on days when your commute drags you down and the last think you want to do is slave away in a kitchen when you get home. But what really kicks this creamy soup recipe up a notch is the addition of fun grilled cheese croutons. It's pretty common to see grilled cheese sandwiches accompany tomato soup as a side dish -- but grilling them into a crispy state of perfection and chopping them into cute crouton cubes = amaaazing

    If you're looking for quick, easy, post-holiday dinner ideas, there's one dish you may want to reconsider: Spaghetti. Campbell's Soup Company just announced that they are voluntarily recalling 300 cases of Prego Traditional Italian sauce because of possible spoilage. Not delicious! The recalled food was delivered to seven states around the nation, so you'll probably want to check your pantry to make sure you're not caught with the sauce. Here's everything you need to know about this recall so you can make sure you start the New Year without upset tummies.

    Christmas has come and gone. So now you're left with a bunch of ham ... turkey ... goose ... duck ... maybe even steak after your Christmastime eating and drinking binge. Not only do you feel extremely bloated and exhausted, you need a detox ASAP. And what to do with all those leftovers?

    What better way to use up that meat than putting it over some fresh greens and chopped veggies? This base recipe for steak salad from Giada De Laurentiis, with a delicious red wine vinaigrette, is great to start out with, then you can do whatever you like. Mix up the type of lettuce, cheese, veggies ... and a special shout-out, if you are from Pittsburgh (like I am!), there's nothing better than putting some warm French fries on top. I know, it sounds insane, but it's actually quite delicious!

    Are you as full and satisfied and happy and filled with turkey and stuffing and veggies and cranberry sauce and everything else as I am? Thanksgiving 2013 has, sadly, come and gone. Can you believe it? Fun family times, cooking, eating, drinking, watching football, saying what we're thankful for ... but now, while the last thing you want to think about is eating, you still have ALL THOSE LEFTOVERS.

    What to do with all that leftover turkey? Of course it's delicious with turkey sandwiches, but maybe you want to switch it up a bit and cook something a little heartier (and cheesier) to get you through these freezing temperatures. How about some pasta? Sweet! Just check out this Turkey Tetrazzini recipe from Pioneer Woman. As she said, you'll want to roast an entire turkey just to have enough left over for this recipe. There might be a big of chopping involved, but all you really have to do is put everything into one big pot!

    Every year on Thanksgiving we stuff ourselves with the perfectly roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce and all the desserts we can fit into our bellies. Then we sit around watching football and hanging out with family. All in all, it’s a nice tradition and not a bad way to spend a Thursday afternoon but have you ever wondered what they ate in 1621 at that first Thanksgiving when the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians celebrated together?

    While there are no home movies or printed menu of the first Thanksgiving to tell us exactly what was eaten, there are a few things we know from historical accounts of the times. It is well known that William Bradford sent a group on a “fowling” mission in preparation of the three-day celebration. Fowling could have very well meant wild turkey (the bird not the alcoholic beverage) or it could have meant ducks, geese or swan since they were commonly eaten. But what else might they have eaten?

    It's almost here! Can you believe that a week from today, Thanksgiving will already be over? You will most likely be 20 pounds heavier and, feeling the effects of that tryptophan, still drowsing around in your sweatpants. I can't wait!

    So of course you are on the hunt for Thanksgiving recipes and want to impress your family and friends with the best of the best. If you're tasked with bringing or making a side dish, you may want to check out this recipe for corn pudding. You probably already have most of the ingredients, it requires whisking everything together, then putting it in the oven, and it will soon become a delicious holiday staple. Just be sure to use an oblong or shallow dish so the pudding will set.

    Sweet, creamy, comforting, flavorful, no wonder Thanksgiving ranks at the top of most people's favorite holidays. Can't wait for the eating (and drinking) to commence!
