Inside the November 2014 Issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

Take a look at the November 2014 Issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, on newsstands Oct. 21. 

Your Thanksgiving Weekend Survival Guide, Party Ideas for Autumn Afternoons, Edible Gifts for the Season, Easy and Delicious Pumpkin Recipes, plus…The Totally Make-Ahead Thanksgiving Dinner Plan

A Totally Make-Ahead, Thoroughly Modern Thanksgiving (Page 106): Let this Thanksgiving be your most delicious yet - with an extra side of stress-free. Recipes like maple sage turkey, cream cheese mashers with kale pesto, garlic rosemary dressing or sweet potato cauliflower fritters might sound complicated – but we’ll let you in on a little secret. These delicious dishes and more can be made anywhere from a day, to a week, to a whole month in advance. Faith Durand, make-ahead master and editor of thekitchn.com, refreshes the menu and shares the tips and tricks that make it possible.


Serve Up Thanksgiving Weekend (Page 55): Thanksgiving isn’t just about dinner - there’s a long weekend of togetherness to be had. Start by creating the perfect guest room with the coziness of home and the conveniences of a five-star hotel. Turn to-do lists into assignments for kids to make set-up simple and keep everyone busy. Serve up a buffet of activity options on game day – like puzzles, trivia, and board games - for even non-sports fans to enjoy. Make the most of your leftovers with our twists on turkey sandwiches, frittata recipes, and back seat eats to send with guests on the road. Our family activities and hosting strategies will make your holiday weekend manageable, memorable, and most of all, fun!

Easy Holiday Baking (Page 154): Pumpkin season has arrived, and we can’t get enough. Blogger Joy the Baker spotlights the canned good that keeps on giving with a delectable collection of treats all made from your pantry shelves. Whip up mouth-watering recipes like pumpkin pie with pecan praline topping, salted pumpkin caramel thumbprints, dark chocolate and pumpkin swirl loaf, and pumpkin bars with marcona almonds.

Make and Share (Page 86): Share homemade deliciousness all season long with a few simple gifts you can make in a pinch. Toasted sea salt in a mason jar looks gourmet – but takes minutes to make and requires just a few pantry staples. Accompaniments like herbed nuts in honey or spiced bourbon cherries pair well with appetizers – and easy-to-make syrups like candied ginger, pomegranate-herb, or vanilla-jalapeno varieties can be bottled for cocktail mixers. Add glass jar containers, handwritten tags, a ribbon or kitchen string – and these homemade gifts will look almost too pretty to eat.

Harvest Cheese & Cider Tasting (Page 17): What’s the best recipe for a delicious autumn afternoon? Good friends, a table full of cheese, and a few crisp ciders to pair. Create a casual affair where guests feel comfortable trying a little bit of everything. Place clip-on blackboard signs on a cheese board to let friends know what they’re tasting. Accompany cheese with toppers like chutney, jam or honey that guests can pair with crackers. Pick your ciders wisely, and mix up house specialties like popcorn tossed with dried blueberries, cranberries, roasted hazelnuts, and powdered blue cheese. Artisanal cheese maker and co-owner of Rogue Creamery, David Grimmels, shows us how to set the scene.

We are excited to share with you news about Short Food Movie, an international contest  promoting  the Italian group, Fondazione Cinema per Roma. We encourage you to check out this project here hosted by the Expo Milano 2015, the Rome Film Festival (October 16 - 25, 2014) and Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, in collaboration with the United Nations. 

Do you have a short story or a message you want to share about your experience with food and the environment? Do you love Italy? Do you want to learn about food culture worldwide? If so, participate and create your own short video! 

The Expo Milano 2015 (to which 7 billion people from 144 countries are invited), is calling people all over the world to express their experience with food and the environment in a short video, which will be on display at the Expo Milano, starting from March 2015. The collective mosaic will grow daily, video by video: brick by brick to build a collective "wall" of experiences. In addition, the creator of the video (which can be uploaded until the 10th of September 2014) receiving the most votes will be invited to the Rome Film Festival with their video this October, where their film will be shown and they will be able to interact with other contributors to the festival. 

It's simple: Create your own short video--videos need to be from 30-60 seconds--and they can be created on any device. There's no "wrong way" to make your video, because you can tell your story however you want: in a narrative, in a documentary, silent or with sound, etc. If you upload your video by September 10th 2014, you will have the chance to attend the Rome Film Festival should your video be selected; however, if you want to submit after September 10th through March 31st, 2015 ALL submitted videos will still be included at the Expo 2015.  Please note that, due to the high volume of expected submissions, the videos on display at the Expo will be shown without sound. 

A more complete guide about how to submit your video can be found here, on the Short Food Movie website.  Participants age 16 and up are welcome to participate. If you are 16 and older and would like to create a video, click here to submit. 

If you would like to see an example of a short film which has already been submitted click here to see a short video from Belgium. It has already received 30 votes in only 4 days! 

Remember, early submissions are due by September 10th, 2014. We hope you will participate, and feel free to share with your friends.
