Since we can't all be lucky enough to score an invite to Oprah's, here's a peek at her plans for this year's holiday. After everyone sips flutes of pink Champagne, she'll serve a delectable multicourse meal developed by her chef, Sonny Sweetman, featuring fresh produce from her garden ("Brussels sprouts are underrated," says Oprah). The grand finale will be a luscious sweet potato pie from baker Sam Godfrey based on his grandmother Pearl Turner's recipe. Oprah's verdict: "I dare you to find a better-tasting pie."
