My take on corn pudding stays true to the custard base this dish is characterized by, but kicks up the flavor a notch with thyme, nutmeg, and smoked sea salt. Pass this around any holiday table, and get ready for the compliments (and groans of delight!) to come tumbling in. Makes one 9 x 13-inch casserole.
2023! Can you believe it's just around the corner? Our team has so much fun dreaming up, debating, and choosing our six theme words each year. We think this set of themes - for our twelfth year in print - is a very special collection. We can't wait to dive into each topic, see what our wonderful contributors come up with, and share it all with you in the year ahead.
So you've done the wordle and the crossword... well we've got one more word game for you this weekend! It's almost time to reveal our themes for the upcoming year, and we always like to have a little fun first!
