Kamala Harris’ Thanksgiving Cornbread Recipe Is Not the First Time She’s Showed Off Her Cooking Skills

Kamala Harris has shared one of her family’s favorite Thanksgiving recipes for cornbread dressing. This is not the first time she has shown off her cooking skills.

The vice president-elect, who comes from a family of expert cooks, has been sharing recipes and tips in online videos and posts for a while.

In May, she taught Senator Mark Warner how to make the perfect tuna melt on YouTube and in November 2019, she cooked a masala dosa with actress Mindy Kaling on Instagram Live.

Ahead of Thanksgiving last year, Harris was also filmed divulging her turkey cooking tips to Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart in a speedy off-air conversation that quickly went viral.

Kamala Harris & Husband Doug Emhoff Open Up About a Pandemic Campaign, Private Time Together and the Future

Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff Could Make History: The Couple Opens Up About a Pandemic Campaign and More

Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff open up about the difficulties of campaigning during the pandemic, how the couple stays connected despite the travel and stress of politics, and what they plan to do once the election is over.

For Kamala Harris, the 2020 election that could land her three entries in America’s record books — as first woman, first Black and first Indian-American vice president — has already made history as the first pandemic-era presidential campaign and one where stepping off stage to shake hands and take selfies with voters is off-limits.

So when the Florida skies poured rain on her Oct. 19 campaign speech in Jacksonville, there was only one thing she could do: dance.

“She’s a joyful warrior for a reason,” the California senator’s husband, Doug Emhoff, tells PEOPLE.

Top Kamala Harris staffer tests positive; blood type may play role in contracting virus

Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris canceled campaign stops Thursday after two staffers tested positive for COVID-19.

Harris wasn’t in contact with either staffer, but she is quarantining out of an abundance of caution, according to a campaign manager for presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Meanwhile, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana are seeing cases surge at rates, per capita, higher than any state’s worst this spring or summer, while Wisconsin is not far behind.

New evidence has come out linking blood type to the likelihood of contracting the virus. And there are still three places in the country without any COVID cases.

Some significant developments:

  • President Donald Trump and Democratic opponent Joe Biden will participate in competing town halls Thursday night. The original debate was canceled after Trump tested positive for the coronavirus and he refused to do a virtual debate.

  • Herd immunity is a strategy being endorsed by

California Sen. Kamala Harris has assumed a central role in Democratic advertising as the presidential campaign enters its final weeks, a sign that party operatives are counting on the first Black woman to appear on a major party’s presidential ticket to fire up young people and Black voters in key swing states.

A set of new advertisements and mailers from BlackPAC, a political action committee that focuses on turning out Black voters in the presidential race and in key Senate races, puts Harris front and center: A television and digital ad uses the speech that Harris delivered at her own presidential campaign kickoff in 2019 as narration. One of the group’s mailers outlines Harris’ biography, noting her education at Howard University

Harris’ mostly virtual campaign to get critical swing state road test

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Kamala Harris told a friendly crowd of Hollywood donors on Thursday they’d be surprised by how many states she’s visiting daily, if only virtually.

Earlier in the week, she’d campaigned before supporters in Minnesota, California and Connecticut, and she was greeting Missouri donors next.

Harris hasn’t been on a plane in more than a month. Three weeks after joining Joe Biden as the Democratic vice presidential nominee, the California senator is still campaigning largely in front of a computer screen to relatively small audiences.

That’s about to change. On Monday, Harris will travel to Milwaukee on her first traditional campaign trip. Biden’s campaign hasn’t yet said what she plans to do in the critical swing state. Her trip to Wisconsin comes after Biden visited Kenosha this past week to meet with the family of Jacob Blake, who was shot by police, and talk to the community about

Biden, Harris prepare to travel more as campaign heats up

WASHINGTON (AP) — After spending a pandemic spring and summer tethered almost entirely to his Delaware home, Joe Biden plans to take his presidential campaign to battleground states after Labor Day in his bid to unseat President Donald Trump. No itinerary is set, according to the Democratic nominee’s campaign, but the former vice president and his allies say his plan is to highlight contrasts with Trump, from policy arguments tailored to specific audiences to the strict public health guidelines the Biden campaign says its events will follow amid COVID-19. That’s a notable difference from a president who on Thursday delivered his nomination acceptance on the White House lawn to more than 1,000 people seated side-by-side, most of them without masks, even as the U.S. death toll surpassed 180,000. “He will go wherever he needs to go,” said Biden’s campaign co-chairman Cedric Richmond, a Louisiana congressman. “And we will do it
