For whatever reason, Easter and candy are synonymous.

Whether the son of God was known for his intense sweet-tooth, it has some sort of pagan significance, or it's just the commercialization of yet another holiday, we have no idea -- nor do we care.

We're just glad to have yet another excuse to pig out on chocolate.

Obviously, the stores are going to be chock full of confections, but we figured it might be time to give it a go on our own.

We enlisted the help of the award-winning chocolatier Hoffman's Chocolates for some do-it-yourself suggestions; and we got the directions for their holiday appropriate Fudge Eggs.

Chef Eva makes weed butter.
Congratulations, Colorado. Not only are you one of the most beautiful places in the United States in which to visit, you're now the first state where the sale of recreational marijuana is legal to anyone age 21 or older.

That means that everyone in the rest of the country is now looking through their Facebook friends to find someone -- anyone -- they went to school with who lives in the Centennial State, to pay a visit.

And the absolute best thing about the legalization of marijuana in Colorado (besides the obvious fact that other states will surely follow), is the incredible pot recipes that are coming out of the state. From pot brownies to cookies, most of these recipes have one thing in common -- canna-butter (or weed butter).

South Philly-style mushrooms are Steve Martorano's favorite side dish.
Though tradition dictates a Thanksgiving meal filled with turkey, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes, most families find a way to throw their own traditional favorites into the mix...and everyone has a favorite side.

Some families serve green bean casseroles, while others have a side of sausage or pasta. Some people devour Brussels sprouts or opt to fill their plate with heaps of candied yams with marshmallow topping. It's a way of putting a personal spin on one of the most important meals of the year.

Thanksgivukkah Recipe: Introducing the Turbrisket or the Trisket (Video)

The trisket: the perfect dish for your Thanksgivukkah celebration.
This year, Hanukkah starts the evening of Wednesday, November 27, which means instead of having the traditional Hanukkah/Christmas celebration where your menorah is lit along with the tree and chocolate gelt is eaten with candy canes, we merge the festival of lights with Thanksgiving.

Thanksgivukkah is a thing -- complete with apparel and greeting cards.

In fact, this could be a genius new holiday. After all, the foods go so well together, as we realized when we perused a menu at a local market offering holiday dinners. For $199 you got your choice of Thanksgiving dinner (with turkey) or a Hanukkah meal (with brisket). But why stop there when you can have both?

Which is why we love (drumroll, um, drumstick roll, please):

The turbrisket...or the trisket! Both are perfect for Thanksgivingkkah meal, yet they're as different as apple pie and pumpkin pie. Let's explain.

Thanksgiving Recipes: How to Make the Two-Hour Turkey From Tastebuds Catering

Many a Thanksgiving novice thinks he or she can handle taking on a whole dinner alone.

Sure, its seems easy enough: mash some potatoes, bake some stuffing, boil some cranberries, cook a bird.

While each of these tasks can be easily done on its own, for a properly executed meal, it's all about the timing. The one thing most beginners mess up is getting the turkey in the oven at the right point.

FYI: it can take all day to cook.

Fortunately, for those who are a bit pressed, quicker options do exist. To help you get it together in an expedient fashion, Larry Gebaide of Tastebuds Catering has given us some tips on preparing a two-hour turkey.

With Halloween less than two weeks away, the time for consuming copious amounts of pumpkin -- or similar squash -- is here.

Sure, you've been drinking the pumpkin beers since the summer, you've probably had a few pumpkin and cream cheese muffins, and we know you've had your share of pumpkin spice lattes, but we figured you might want to curb the calories on your gourd intake before it's too late.
