Thanksgiving dinner is most everyone’s favorite holiday meal. But, we always lament afterwards that we ate too much. Check out these wonderful light bites that our Creative Cooking Crew made for cocktail appetizers. They’ll leave plenty of room for your turkey, stuffing and all its accompaniments.

A perfect meal has multiple levels of flavor and textures, bright colors and tastes, and healthy(ish) choices. It's all about enjoyment. Enjoy the process, the presentation and the just rewards...eating!
I've always been a culinary improvisor which means I get my kicks out of recipe development. In the FOODalogue kitchen each meal is an adventure and the journey is as exciting as the destination. My favorite kitchen tools are imagination and intuition. I rarely look at a recipe, not even my own!
On these pages, I suggest food pairings and techniques to be experimented with...in your own kitchen...to your own spice levels...and to your preferred portion sizes.
