Homemade stuffing recipe to please losers who love Stove Top

We're going to a group Thanksgiving and need to make the stuffing. My spouse loves to go nuts with elaborate recipes but none of the ones we've tried taste half as good as plain old Stove Top stuffing. And when we asked our friends they admitted the same. What's a recipe that will give that very basic kind of generic stuffing goodness but with a homemade flair? Or is there a way can we make Stove Top but make it less depressing and show some effort?

Truckstop cappuccino recommendations

I want to give my wife a variety of flavors of coffee and coffee flavorings for Christmas. She has no interest in quality, she is a connoisseur of what I like to call "shitty, super sweet coffee." Help me find some different flavorings and options to make her mind reel with the delicious possibilities! ($120 total gift limit) [more inside]

Name upgrade for a cake swap

Instead of a Christmas gift exchange this year, my mom's small church is doing a cake swap. Each household brings a nice cake, pie, or other dessert, and at the end of the evening there will be a drawing to see who takes which dessert home. She wants a better name than "dessert extravaganza!" Any ideas? They're planning to display things nicely on multi-leveled stands, but any other thoughts on making this more special or entertaining are welcome!

Liquor for Tuaca lover

I have an aunt that loves Tuaca. I'd like to get her a present that is a bottle of liquor she'll love that she may not be familiar with. She'll drink just about anything, but her preferred cocktail is straight up Tuaca on the rocks. Anyone know of anything interesting or obscure that might be awesome?

I'm gonna need some dog treats for this

I am interested in baking some dog treats. Except these treats aren't for dogs, and they're not even really for eating. Instead they're a cosplay prop, and the most important thing is that I can hold them in my mouth as long as possible. Do you know how I might make these? [more inside]

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I'm an American living abroad trying to cobble together something for Thanksgiving sans oven. I also am an idiot when it comes to cooking. I can buy roasted sweet potatoes on the street, how can I make them like sweet potato casserole or similar? Also, any other easy Thanksgiving-ish side dish ideas would be appreciated.

Great but lesser-known cookery books?

Thanks to my local library, I've been working my way through the best-known cookery books (in the UK, at least). Delia, Gordon and Jamie have been thoroughly perused, as have Mr Slater and Mr Stein etc etc. I'd love to expand my repertoire further and find more obscure things to have a bash at! [more inside]

How long are dried mushrooms good for?

I bought 4 ounces of dried porcini mushrooms last year with the intent of making a bunch of Magic Mushroom Powder for people as Christmas gifts. This did not happen. The mushrooms have been sitting in a dark cupboard in the dining room (so away from sources of heat in the kitchen) for the last year. They came in 1 ounce plastic bags that are still sealed shut. Okay to use? I'd like to actually make the powder this year. Thanks!

Should I eat this pork roast that looks sponge like?

What is going on with this meat? So we just roasted a pork roast bought from a well known national discount grocer, that rhymes with Aldi. It came out with a bunch of holes that we initially thought were "pretenderizing". But on further examination, it doesn't look like any jicarding outcome that happens to meat. Here are the photos:
