How to Trim a Whole Beef Tenderloin

 

The holidays are upon us and for many people, this is the one time they fix a whole beef tenderloin.  Roasting a whole tenderloin is super simple to do, but most people skip the actual preparation of trimming the tenderloin, which they leave to their butcher.  This usually makes the tenderloin more expensive to buy.

Mini Cheesecakes with Cranberry Topping & Chocolate Crust

 

 

 

Sometimes serving individual little cheesecakes is just a little more special than slicing servings from a large cheesecake.  If you're having a small dinner with just a few people, mini cheesecakes are a fun option.  I have two ways to make mini cheesecakes, which are easy and work well - one is Wilton's inidividual mini cheesecake pans and the other is this Norpro mini cheesecake pan.  But what if you don't have these pans and don't want to invest in something like this when you're only going to use them once in a blue moon?  You can bake a whole cheesecake in a 9x13 pan and just cut out individual cheesecakes with a cutter.

Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and so I thought I would compile a little roundup of recipes from the blog that might give you some new ideas or helpful tips. These are some of my favorites - some oldies but goodies! There's everything from a very different way to make turkey to a fun version of pumpkin pie.  I hope you enoy some of these posts!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Make Ahead Buffet Mashed Potatoes 

Worried about having the time or energy to make mashed potatoes while you're juggling the turkey, side dishes and all your relatives?  You can make this dish the day before Thanksgiving and have it all ready to pop in the oven on Thanksgiving Day or even the week before Thanksgiving and freeze it.  It's delicious.
