There are no couch potatoes here

Properly made, comfort food is an art. Mashed potatoes are no exception — and, let’s face it, the Thanksgiving table simply isn’t complete without them. And though personal preference may have a lot to do with what you might consider the perfect mash — do you like your potatoes smooth or lumpy? Creamy or fluffy? — there are nevertheless some tips you can follow to elevate your spuds above the rest of the pack.

Preparing the perfect bird

Among all the Thanksgiving cooking questions each year, cooking the turkey poses the most. Wrestling a 20-pound bird from grocery freezer case to oven to table without wrecking it proves daunting for many cooks. That’s why these thawing and roasting times from the USDA come in so very handy.

Make the perfect roast chicken

Roast chicken just might be the quintessential dinner at home. The aroma, the luxurious flavor and the warmth of the oven draw family and friends to the table like magic. Perhaps that's the reason so many food writers and cookbook authors go on and on about the topic. My take: Roast chickens often enough that you no longer rely on recipes.
Tea

Steep a better cup of tea

Tea is losing its image as a drink for little old ladies sipping the brew out of dainty china cups. Whether for its health benefits or as an alternative to a cup of coffee, tea is hot.
Apple pies galore
