Joey's Guide To Thanksgiving

 Many people ask me for ideas and hints and tips and suggestions when it comes to planning and cooking for Thanksgiving. Just as I do every year, I've added some new recipes to my Thanksgiving page. I must say, this is becoming quite a list! In addition to all the fabulous recipes, there are helpful tips about menu planning and methods of cooking your turkey, as well as what to do if something goes wrong. It's probably not a bad idea to bookmark the page! This way you'll have it handy and ready to refer to whenever you need it as you plan your holiday menu. Yes, I know I have a several recipes for the same items (potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, etc). But don't you think it's nice to have a few different options? I also have a few recipes that are not necessarily seasonal, but would be great for your Thanksgiving feast. (summer squash anyone?) Feel free to browse through them! Hopefully they'll help you plan your Thanksgiving menu and maybe they'll inspire you to try something that you've never attempted. Of course, I'm always here for culinary tech support. Just email me! Oh, and don't forget to let me know how it goes! Have Fun!
