I'm making a vegetarian dish for Thanksgiving. I've decided to go with a Portabello/Tomato/Onion Mac & Cheese. I'd really like to make it special with some fresh herbs. The cheese is just Jack and Cheddar. Any suggestions that pair well?

Have you ever thrown a cocktail? Not at someone. FOR someone. Throwing a cocktail is another way to mix a cocktail for your guests by “throwing” the ingredients back and forth from mixing glass to tin. Charlotte Voisey demonstrates this technique while making her Unusual Negroni cocktail.
Easy Rice Pudding
A simple and supremely satisfying dessert, rice pudding is pure comfort in a bowl. It's easy to get there too! Just simmer white rice with whole milk, sugar, and a pinch of salt until the grains are tender, plump, and creamy, then stir in a little vanilla or almond extract while the pudding's still warm. Top however you like (fresh berries in season, dried fruit, toasted nuts for a crunchy contrast, a sprinkle of cinnamon, etc.) -- you really can't go wrong.
