Tune Into HSN for a Special Bon Appetit Cooking Event!

Once again Bon Appetit has teamed up with HSN to bring you a fabulous subscription offer: 12 issues for $12 during our November HSN Cooks Event Presented by Bon Appetit. Your subscription will start with our packed November issue, which is filled with Thanksgiving recipes as well as everyday recipes to help you through the busy season.

Our readers like traditional holiday food, gently tweaked. With that in mind we always present dozens of turkey, stuffing, potato, vegetable side dishes and cranberry sauce recipes as well as all your favorite pies from apple to pumpkin – all with a Bon Appetit twist. This year consider sampling our Malt Beer Brined Turkey with Malt Glaze, Rosemary Bread Stuffing with Speck, Fennel and Lemon and our tangy sweet Cranberry Sauce with Mustard Seeds. Try our new take on a veggie classic with Green Beans with Toasted Walnuts – and (are you sitting down?) – we even have a complete main dish that you can get to the table in less than Two Hours: our Roast Turkey Breast with Potatoes, Green Beans and Mustard Pan Sauce from our very popular FastEasyFresh column seen here below

Thanksgiving is but one day of the month so we also have recipes to help you with weekday meals, whether it is just for you and your family or visiting guests: the Seared Asian Steak and the Lamb Chops with Red Onion, Grape Tomatoes and Feta (see below) are also from our FastEasyFresh column, which means you will get the food on the table quickly, using fresh seasonal ingredients and a full nutritional profile for each dish.

If you are vegetarian, or just looking for a change from turkey, try the hearty Mushroom and Lentil Pot Pies from our Sunday Suppers column.

With your subscription, you get all this and more. Our December issue covers all the winter holiday menus and of course every issue has our standard columns, such as the ones mentioned above, as well as restaurant reviews, ideas for gifts, housewares, wine and beverage recommendations….and of course, my favorite, desserts! This turkey day I’m going with the Apple Pie with Oat Streusel (the crunch of the topping contrasts so nicely with the juicy fruit filling) and the Pumpkin Pie with Pepita and Ginger (tune in to HSN to see me make this one on-air; see the preview below).
