Thanksgiving is coming! Crept up just like that, didn't it? Which means you've probably got a lot of work to do to get ready for one of the biggest family get-togethers of the year.

We hope this guide helps. It's packed with tips from previously published stories, including everything from how to cook a perfect bird, to food safety tips, to cocktail recipes and even a fresh idea for dealing with leftovers.
