Planning a huge Thanksgiving feast, but don't want to spend all your time away from your guests, toiling away in the kitchen?

Try these tips:

  • Prep as much as you can the night or two before—especially cold items and side dishes.
  • Use warmers and crockpots to keep things warm without the work.
  • Make it a potluck. Ask your guests to share the cooking load.
  • Serve buffet-style. This cuts down on serving time.

Enjoy your celebration!
