Holiday Sides

The winter is full of big family meals where you really have to be on your game to get food on the table all at once. Sara shows a little love to the unsung heroes of the big meal: the sides. She's got delicious winter vegetables like shredded butternut squash with dates, Brussels sprouts with panko breadcrumbs and a creamy tahini sauce, plus a creamy root vegetable soup that can stand on its own as a main course or serve as a first course. And for the hungry cook: apple nutmeg bites to tide you over until dinnertime.

Honey Be Good

It's a well-known fact that honeybees are a precious resource for pollinating the food we eat, but they are mysteriously dying off. Sara joins a beekeeper in Savannah, Georgia to discover the secrets of bees and beekeeping. Then they make a honey centered dish that's pure Georgia — rosemary honey and Georgia peach chutney burgers. Next, she travels to Napa, California to gather ingredients at a farm and cook with chef Joey Altman. His grilled duck breast with honey roasted carrots, farro-herb salad and cider jus is easier than it sounds, and delicious as well.

Super Bowls of Soup

The big game and a cold night are both perfect times to enjoy a hearty bowl of soup, like Sara's take on traditional New England chowder, her smoky fish chowder, made even more delicious with bacon. On Ask Sara, she shows ways to pack for a tailgate, including safely transporting hot soups. Then she joins Brazilian chef Leticia Moreinos Schwartz on a shopping trip to a Brazilian market before they make Leticia's chicken, shrimp, peanut and cashew stew. Soups on! Recipes: Smoky fish chowder; Chicken shrimp, peanut and cashew stew.
