I go hogwild for anything vanilla. It’s my favorite flavor, and I will eagerly eat anything that includes the word “vanilla” in the title, even if it’s, like, a vanilla tuna casserole (yum!). So I’ll definitely be clearing a space on my kitchen shelf for Pure Vanilla, a whole cookbook dedicated solely to delicious vanilla recipes. Vanilla bean donuts and vanilla coconut popsicles? Yes, please! [$23, Modcloth]

I’m not a big fan of meals composed of Thanksgiving leftovers (my dad used to literally put all of the scraps of turkey, stuffing, green beans, and mashed potatoes in a blender and serve it as an opaque gray “holiday stew”). When it comes to cocktails, however, I’m all about getting creative with whatever ingredients you have on hand. This particular drink caught my eye because it makes use of a handful of gorgeous fresh cranberries, pairing them with ginger ale and vodka. If you have any green apples left over from pie-making this week, I think a couple thin slices of those would be another great addition. Cheers! [Book Cooker]
