Take tailgating up a notch with Hoboken Cheesesteaks, Celery Root and Red Pepper Slaw, Warm Roasted Butternut Squash Salsa with Tortilla Chips, and Fig Bars. Sweeten a Halloween party with Carrot Apple Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. And family and friends can give thanks over Dry-Brined Roast Turkey with Cider Gravy, Cornbread Stuffing with Dried Fruits and Hazelnuts, Mashed Potatoes with Mascarpone and Roasted Garlic, and Concord Grape Pie.
