In an “iron flip dog,” eggs, sugar, cream, spices, molasses, and even pumpkin are scalded in a mug using a hot fireplace poker. Any number of alcohols is then added. Few mixed drinks have the lineage of a flip. It was first mentioned in England in 1685, and Ishmael expounds upon its virtues in Moby Dick. When eggs were added, the flip was called a “Yard of Flannel,” alluding to the flannel-like surface caused by the cooked eggs. The heated flip has all but vanished, and the drink has literally taken a polar flip, since it is now served as a chilled cocktail. The iron pokers were also known as loggerheads; the expression “at loggerheads,” used for being in a heated dispute, derives from the heated discussions born of a surfeit of flips. Hot pokers are not common bar tools anymore, so a true flip would be best sampled at home. A flip should be frothy; it is therefore important to shake it vigorously.
Tip: Buy boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or ask your butcher to bone and skin them for you.
! Tangy-sweet cranberry curd meets buttery walnut shortbread for a twist on the classic lemon bar. A dash of cinnamon ties it all together. And don’t worry - this whole recipe comes together in about an hour, making it an excellent last-minute treat for Thanksgiving or any other special dinner this fall.
This Polish breakfast skillet recipe is a takeoff on a dish my busia and mother would make when they had leftover kluski. They'd fry them in lots of butter, scramble in some eggs and add a healthy sprinkling of black pepper. We'd have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or anytime eating meat was a no-no. I've updated it a bit with peppers, onions, sausage and cheese. And sometimes I substitute leftover potatoes for the kluski. Makes 6 hearty servings of Polish Breakfast Skillet Recipe
15 minutes. Just the thing for watching Bride and Prejudice.

As the seasons change, consider substituting heirloom tomatoes, plums, and other soft fruits for the peaches. Prep: 25 min., Grill: 10 min. We found traditional peaches work better in this dish than white peaches, which have more sugar and water and don't hold up as well on the grill.

I like to use a mixture of new potatoes and purple potatoes in this salad, but if you can?t find any purple ones then just use all new potatoes instead. But try to hunt them down ? they?re great!
Less is more when it comes to lobster rolls. Cold chucks of fresh, sweet Maine lobster, and very light mayonnaise-based dressing, stuffed into a toasted hot dog bun. I add a tiny hint of fresh tarragon, which really brings out the sweetness of the lobster. This sandwich is truly one of life's simple pleasures. While this will not be an inexpensive sandwich to assemble, once you taste the amazing contrast between the warm, buttery bun and the cold, sweet lobster salad, you'll realize it was worth every penny! Makes 4 rolls

Certain dishes of northeast Italy, such as this one, are influenced by the region's proximity to Austria and Germany. The somewhat acidic flavor of the pork is similar to that of German sauerbraten, but the garlic and rosemary add a distinctly Italian touch.
This dish has been in heavy rotation in our home for at least 20 years. Originally made from an Italian recipe, it has morphed into our own. When the rosemary vinegar is added to the pan of golden chicken, alchemy occurs. The vinegar deglazes the brown bits and reduces into a syrup, permeating the chicken with an agrodolce (sweet-and-sour) flavor. There's no better accompaniment than polenta; the readily available instant kind is handy for time-pressed cooks. Rice, pasta, or bread will also work -- as long as there is something to sop up the sauce. The dish is even better the day after it's made. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn.

Fried almonds or sesame seeds are scattered over the tagine as a garnish.

Time: 1 1/2 hours. If we could have only one other dish besides turkey for Thanksgiving, this would be it: Hunks of juicy sausage, good bread, and lots of chard—a stuffing that works as a side dish too.

I've always felt that the proper treats for August were red, dripping, icy things. Things you get off the ice cream truck, like ice cream sandwiches with chewy cookie covers, tall flag-striped popsicles, and little cups of red ice drenched in a syrup you suck away, leaving clear icy crystals that crunch between your teeth and give you a sweet, piercing headache. Well, here's a red, drippy sorbet to banish the heat, but with a grown-up twist and a creamy, herbed topping.
Try this cookie recipe that contrasts the tartness of the cherries with the cocoa and chocolate chips for an elegant, and delicious, addition to your holiday table.
Whether this Thanksgiving centerpiece incites horror, amazement, or confusion when it’s served, it’s certain to evoke some kind of outburst. Warning: This dish is not recommended for people who require an inch of space between food groups. Game plan: The mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes can be made ahead. Rewarm them just prior to assembling the cake, so they are easy to spread. If your attention lapses and the marshmallows happen to burn or catch fire while broiling (this actually happened to us), relax and just blow out the flames. Peel away the burnt marshmallows, leaving the sweet potato layer intact, and start over with a fresh topping of marshmallows. Hey, did you know that we have an app for Thanksgiving? You won’t get turkey cake, but you’ll get good T-day eats. This recipe was featured as part of our story on Thanksgiving Turkey Recipes, Traditional to Trippy.

This soup is a cinch to make, but allow time for the mint ice to freeze. The pea soup may appear slightly thick but will thin as the mint ice melts. If you are preparing this soup during the colder months, simply omit the mint ice and thin with extra vegetable stock.
