Sandra Lee has created the perfect Thanksgiving meal and a drink inspired by the music from Joshua Bell’s new album At Home With Friends which features duets with Josh Groban, Sting, Regina Spektor, Kristin Chenoweth and many others (we reviewed it earlier – read about it here). If you don’t have the Food Channel, you may not know who Sandra Lee is, but if you’re a busy mom who could use some help in the kitchen, you may want to check out her website for tips and tricks to get you out of the kitchen faster but with quality products.
Sandra specializes in taking boxed and packaged products and giving them a homemade spin. She goes beyond the food and shows you how to make the everyday more special with table decorations and more.
“Thanksgiving is the perfect time to bring everyone together to celebrate a year of blessings. Serve savory and decadent dishes such as Savory Bread Pudding and Praline Sweet Potato Casserole on an inviting table, filled with rich colors and seasonal textures. Simple, time-saving shortcuts to create a meaningful feast can be found in my new book Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Cocktail Time. Give your gracious gathering a heartwarming start with my personal favorite, Joshua Bell’s album, At Home With Friends and greet guests at your door with a vibrant cocktail, such as a Peach and Apricot Cider or Pumpkin Pie Martini . The main attraction is food, so try turning your Turkey or Pork Roast into a colorful centerpiece, served with a side of cornbread stuffing or cranberry sauce. For a quick and easy dessert try Semi-Homemade Glazed Spice Donuts with Pecans or a Sweet Potato Cake with Citrus Glaze, so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time celebrating with your family and friends.” – Sandra Lee
