Yum, Thanksgiving Dinner – Cooking It Up with Martha Stewart

Rather than give my own tips on preparing for the great American holiday of Thanksgiving, I decided to check YouTube for videos on prep from a well-known cook.  I’m providing this the week before so you have time to shop for ingredients.  Below are the Martha Stewart’s how to video links for a few of the different options in the standard holiday meal.  Check out her tips for the items you are not sure how to make and then go get similar recipes from the link in the paragraph below the YouTube links.

Wow, that is a lot of carbs!  Go to Martha’s Everything Thanksgiving Recipes webpage.  There are tabs near the top of the page for main dishes, side dishes, deserts, and decorations for the big day.  She even provides a tab with ideas of what to do with leftovers!  If your favorite side was not included, let me know what it is in the comments.

He! He!  Some of the guests on those cooking videos were really funny, huh?  For another tiny chuckle, check out this cartoon Martha Stewart Serves Up Thanksgiving Turkey.
