I always looked forward to the day when I would head Thanksgiving dinner. I would be in charge of creating the menu and would be the head chef of the kitchen. I just didn’t think it would be this year. A lot of families are being forced to spend Thanksgiving apart this year meaning some of us will be facing new challenges in the kitchen.

I can whip up almost any side dish but when it comes to cooking a whole turkey, that’s a different playing field for me. I could call up my parents and ask for advice every step of the way while attempting to cook one, or I could call the experts on the “Turkey Talk-Line.” Yes, it’s a real thing!
