The holidays are coming -- have you thought about recipes yet? The Los Angeles Times has two seasonal e-books to help you get through the next couple of months with a minimum of angst and a maximum of pleasure.
LIVE VIDEO DISCUSSION: Check this space today at 1:00 p.m.
The first is "The Los Angeles Times Holiday Handbook" -- more than 110 seasonal recipes to help you celebrate Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year's. We’ve also updated last year's "Los Angeles Times Holiday Cookies," so it now includes 65 recipes from a wide range of sources, from world-famous pastry chefs to home cooks.
The Times is hosting a live video chat at 1:00 p.m. PDT today to talk all things Thanksgiving with Food editor Russ Parsons and Test Kitchen manager Noelle Carter. Russ will also demo his mother's famous cranberry recipe, which you can find below.
We invite you to join in on the conversation by posting your ideas, comments and questions below.
Each book is $4.99, and they are available at the Los Angeles Times bookstore for Kindle, Nook and iBooks.
