Several years ago, my sister, Jennie, and I almost walked out on Thanksgiving dinner. It wasn’t because the turkey was overdone or that we ran out of wine. No, it was a way bigger deal than that. My mom, for the first time that we could remember, did not make green bean casserole. We freaked. But we’re probably not the only ones who would miss this Thanksgiving classic. Green Bean Casserole is one of our most popular Thanksgiving side dishes.

I enjoy hosting Thanksgiving, but it can be taxing—especially on my wallet. Thanksgiving is all about abundance, and I want to keep it that way—without breaking the bank. So I’ve carefully selected my menu this year to include Thanksgiving recipes that are affordable and delicious.

Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes, but it always seems to hit the table at precisely the point that I internally declare that I can’t possibly eat any more.

This is my favorite time of year to invite friends over for drinks and nibbles. And when it's cold outside, there's nothing more welcoming than a pot of hot cider simmering on the stove or a mug of mulled wine to offer my guests as they arrive. These delicious hot toddies (with alcohol and without) are festive enough to serve all season long. And the best part is they’re easy to make for a crowd, which means I’m not stuck in the kitchen mixing cocktails all night long.

Community Question: 
What’s your favorite punch to serve at holiday parties? Do you have a signature cocktail or mocktail?

“How can I have fun, but avoid gaining weight, during the holidays?”

It’s the most common question I get this time of year—an occupational hazard of being a registered dietitian, I guess. But it’s no wonder everyone wants to know: from Thanksgiving to New Year’s, the holidays are all about the food. And not just any food, but the rich celebration foods we look forward to all year long. When forgoing these foods just isn’t an option, follow these 7 tips and tricks to stay in your skinny jeans all season long.

I adore Thanksgiving, but the holiday quickly loses its luster when I start thinking about all the extra calories I’m consuming by eating my favorite foods.

Community Question: 
When it comes to Thanksgiving would you rather eat healthier recipes or just not worry about all the extra calories and fat?

I don't know about you, but when I heard on the news that Kellogg's had slapped a claim on their Krispies cereal boxes that it "now helps support your child's IMMUNITY," I turned up the volume. Really? Boosting immunity with Cocoa Krispies and Frosted Krispies? Admittedly, I'm as freaked out about getting sick as the next person (hello cold and flu season and H1N1!), but what's in those boxes of cereal that will really help me? (Find 3 research-tested immunity-boosting superfoods here.)
