Thanksgiving for Small Gatherings
Rice Pilaf with Currants and Pine Nuts
Traditional recipes insist that for a truly great pilaf you must soak or at least repeatedly rinse the rice before cooking. Is this really necessary, or is it just an old wives' tale?
Green Beans with Sauteed Shallots and Vermouth

Cranberry-Green Grape Relish
