This is the time of year when even nutrition pros get quizzed on their culinary savvy.  The Thanksgiving meal tends to bring even the most kitchen confident to their knees. Let’s face it there is a lot of juggling to make an impressive meal plus a fun, seamless soiree.  No worries, in this Internet age there is a ton of help out there – and the great thing is that you can chat with a live person for help in food prep/serving/timing/meal planning.
