Let's talk turkey. Preparing Thanksgiving dinner for the whole family can be stressful without grandma in the kitchen. We strive for the perfect turkey, struggle for the perfect pie crust when the holiday is really about giving thanks and sharing our bounty with those we love, not about perfectly plated food.
