Thanksgiving Tips


1.  Listen to NPR shows.  They have a lot of guests on there arguing about new ways to make turkey.

2.  Read cooking magazines.  Lots of ideas for different sides dishes, cooking times, day-before prep, etc.

3.  Watch TV-plenty of cooking shows featuring real chefs.

4.  This is the most important.  Make the exact same dishes you make the exact same way you do every year.  You won’t accidentally mess anything up because you know exactly how to do it and everyone likes the same old foods, anyway. Nobody wants pine nuts or Mediterranean flavors or Asian-inspired ingredients in their dressing, for Lord’s sake.

You’re welcome.

  1. This is really excellent advice.

  2. Thanks, Laura! It may not be the soundest advice considering I got two Thanksgiving invites, but both have actually been taken back. So, I say, follow your heart and if you want A Sichuan noodle dressing and cranberry-brussels sprouts sitr fry, then go for it.
