Last month, along with several other food and mom bloggers, I participated in a filmed roundtable with Jennifer Garner and Frigidaire to help support their charitable efforts on behalf of Save the Children. During our session, we “talked turkey” with Jennifer about Thanksgiving, traditions, and how to help families in need this holiday season. You can see the videos at maketimeforchange.com (I’m in the Holiday Feel video.)
You see, Jennifer and Frigidaire are continuing their work on behalf of Save the Children to help support families in need. They also asked us bloggers to help get the word out and encourage you to visit maketimeforchange.com. Every time you do, Frigidaire will donate a turkey and $1 to Save the Children to help support families in need.
Also, visitors are entered for a chance to win a Frigidaire Gallery® Range with Symmetry™ Double Ovens, the new freestanding range that can roast two large turkeys at once or multiple dishes at different temperatures for maximum cooking flexibility. (Awesome ovens. I now have total oven envy and am hoping that our next home in Massachusetts needs new kitchen appliances. I’ll really miss my Frigidaire Gallery range, microwave and dishwasher.)
Talking Turkey with Chef Suzanne Goin
Before meeting with Jennifer, we also attended a filmed demo with Chef Suzanne Goin, owner of critically acclaimed restaurants, Lucques, A.O.C., and Tavern in Los Angeles. She’s wonderful and had so many delicious and fairly healthy ideas for Thanksgiving like her Braised Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta, Balsamic and Breadcrumbs and her Sweet Potatoes with Sherry, Young Spinach and Romesco. She also demoed a Pumpkin Cake with Pecan Streusel, Creme Fraiche and Maple Ice Cream that was delicious.
You can see all of Chef Goin’s Thanksgiving recipes on the Talking Turkey website. While you’re there, check out videos of Chef Goin cooking with Jennifer. When you do, Frigidaire will donate a turkey and $1 to Save the Children to help support families in need.
