Faith Middleton, NPR's "The Food Schmooze", shares her Thanksgiving Recipes with a little Monte Mathews on the side.

         Recently, I was a guest on National Public Radio’s “The Food Schmooze”.  The show, which originates in New Haven CT, is heard twice a week on WNPR’s stations in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York including the East End of Long Island.  Faith Middleton is its much heralded hostess.  Faith has boundless energy and she’s a wizard at finding just the right thing for her audience to cook.  Her Thanksgiving recipes included everything from starters to desserts.  Here’s a list: Parmesan-Crusted Creamed Corn, Manuela and Jeanne's Garlic Potato Pie, Fennel Spice Rub for the Big Bird, Savory Cornbread Stuffing Muffins, Marian's Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pears and Shallots,and Pumpkin Pie with Brown Sugar-Walnut Topping. But Faith didn’t stop there:  She also included two recipes for leftovers--Jimmy's Turkey Hash and Slow-Cooker Turkey Chili with Dark Chocolate and two drinks for the occasion Faith's Sparkling Holiday Rosé and Faith's Thanksgiving Cosmo Sparkler!  You can click on any one of these recipes to be whisked over to Faith’s web address where you’ll the step-by-step instructions on how to make these fantastic dishes part of your Thanksgiving meal.  But before you go running off, please give a listen to Faith’s show and my interview.  I’m a little after the 34 minute mark.  Here’s the link to the show.
