The Martha Stewart Holiday Collection: Martha’s Classic Thanksgiving is a most pleasant and entertaining way to find inspiration for a Thanksgiving less ordinary. Taken from past episodes of Stewart’s television programs, Classic Thanksgiving presents five ways to cook a turkey, beginning with “Turkey 101,” in which Martha prepares a fairly traditional meal while revealing the story of her Thanksgiving from Hell. (Her soon-to-be-ex-husband set the oven on broil and inserted the soon-to-be-unrecognizable bird.) Other shows focus on a rotisserie-baked turkey, a deep-fried turkey (with Creole spices), a boned, broiled, and rolled turkey (very nifty), and most provocative of all, a “black-lacquered” turkey, in which one of Stewart’s bankers–who knows exactly two dinner recipes and is so naive in the kitchen she calls a grater a “scraping thing”—demonstrates how a turkey browns beautifully beneath a paste of yummy ingredients that blacken in the heat.

Also on the disc are guides for making several fantastic stuffing dishes, the most dazzling of all a pumpkin challah bread stuffing and a fruit-and-nut stuffing recipe that begins with the soaking of apricots and prunes in bourbon–and just gets better from there. Side dishes include a mouth-watering garlic-horseradish mashed potato dish, and the fascinating “Native American Succotash,” a brilliantly colored dish that requires little but veggies themselves. As for desserts: the rustic apple tarts are spectacular and look easy to make in Stewart’s kitchen, but the cranberry-pistachio biscotti could be enough to make a grown man weep. There are sections, too, on settings and centerpieces (the gourd candle holders sound silly but look great) as well as kids’ crafts. Fun to watch, learn from, or just dream by, The Martha Stewart Holiday Collection: Martha’s Classic Thanksgiving is a good thing. –Tom Keogh

David Tamés made Martha Stuart’s Perfect Macaroni and Cheese for Memorial Day and modified the recipe by using less milk and using the cheese that Martha warms against using.

Martha says: "Sharp white cheddar produces the smoothest result; yellow and extra sharp cheddars can become grainy."
