Ground pork sometimes needs a little help in the flavor department, and the addition of spicy Mexican chorizo does the job here. Top these burgers with grilled chiles and a grilled avocado mash; wash it all down with a refreshing beer cocktail. What to buy: Mexican chorizo (not to be confused with its Spanish counterpart) is a fresh pork sausage that must be cooked prior to eating. It can be mild or spicy, and is found at gourmet markets or online. If you can’t find Mexican chorizo, you can sub in any fresh, spicy sausage. Game plan: If you’re grilling outside, toast the buns right on the grill while the cooked patties are resting. If you’re grilling inside using a grill pan, toast your buns in the oven, because the moisture left in the pan from cooking the burgers will make the buns soggy.

Affogato, Italian for “drown,” is a description normally reserved for ice cream doused in espresso. Here we take that same principle and swap out the espresso for alcohol to create an adult version of ice cream floats where the variations are endless—try butter pecan with amaretto or chocolate chip with Chambord. Serve them in small glasses, demitasses, cordial glasses, or shot glasses. Game plan: To avoid scooping ice cream while your guests are there, use this catering trick: Scoop the ice cream onto a small, parchment-lined baking sheet, then place in the freezer until it’s time to assemble the affogato. Try toasting the nuts for a few minutes before adding them to the shots.
Carrots with a tangy sweet-sour sauce.
Whether this Thanksgiving centerpiece incites horror, amazement, or confusion when it’s served, it’s certain to evoke some kind of outburst. Warning: This dish is not recommended for people who require an inch of space between food groups. Game plan: The mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes can be made ahead. Rewarm them just prior to assembling the cake, so they are easy to spread. If your attention lapses and the marshmallows happen to burn or catch fire while broiling (this actually happened to us), relax and just blow out the flames. Peel away the burnt marshmallows, leaving the sweet potato layer intact, and start over with a fresh topping of marshmallows. Hey, did you know that we have an app for Thanksgiving? You won’t get turkey cake, but you’ll get good T-day eats. This recipe was featured as part of our story on Thanksgiving Turkey Recipes, Traditional to Trippy.

The better your fruit, the more delicious these bright, intense popsicles will be. Lisa Brenneis of Churchill-Brenneis Orchard uses the farm's Oroblanco grapefruit, Gold Nugget tangerines and/or Page tangelos, and Moro blood oranges for her popsicles--but you can use any combination of citrus. Normally, these fruits are available at California farmers' markets from December through April, but January's freeze may make them scarce (by 2008, production should be back to normal). Prep Time: about 30 minutes, plus about 4 1/4 hours freezing time. Notes: You will need 8 popsicle molds (1/3- to 1/2-cup capacity), available at cookware and hardware stores. Superfine sugar, available at most supermarkets, dissolves more quickly and thoroughly than regular sugar.
