Secret pecan tart recipe

For Thanksgiving I made a pecan tart with a foolproof crust recipe from America’s Test Kitchen.  It seriously is foolproof and the best crust ever.  The secret is that it uses vodka.  We had some Seagram’s Sweet Tea vodka left from a summer backyard party, and that was the perfect thing for a pecan tart.

Not your Grandmother’s Waldorf Salad

  Waldorf salad, originally created at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, has been a classic in homes for generations.  We updated the classic by giving it a new look.  Walnuts, raisins, apples, and celery with a strawberry mayonnaise dressing.  The dressing is made with a little walnut oil, crème fraîche and pepper flakes as well.   Photos by Tony Fitzgerald Photography PHOTOS ARE AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITE FOR IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD FOR COMMERCIAL USE.
