Hi, everyone! It’s Judith writing again. Have you decided on your Thanksgiving menu yet? Turkey, yes, and then what? Help! Allrecipes to the rescue! More than half of home cooks are finding their holiday recipes on the Web these days. Smart cooks! Those recipe reviews from people just like you are sooooo helpful in deciding what dishes to make.
If you’re looking for ideas, let Allrecipes to be your go-to resource for Thanksgiving recipes. There are dishes to suit every entertaining style and family budget. In fact, you can find a delicious budget menu right here with eight terrific Turkey Day recipes. Check out tried and true recipes for an easy-to-prepare Roast Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, a Green Bean Casserole, Cranberry Sauce, and Gravy. Of course, we included dessert, too! Everyone loves Mom’s Pumpkin Pie. You won’t go wrong with Mom’s and a homemade pie crust!
But what if you’re not sure how to make fluffy mashed potatoes, or you’ve never in your life made a pie crust from scratch??? (Making your own pie crust IS less expensive and a whole lot tastier than buying a premade crust.) Don’t stress! Allrecipes has a surprise planned for you next Wednesday, November 25, the day before Thanksgiving, to help you prepare for the big feast. On Monday, I’ll tell you more!

Oh well thats just a tease! ;) I wanna know now. Cause I can't make a pie crust for nothing! I am thinking about attempting it. But not sure if I want to ruin my Thanksgiving pies! lol

Yep, we're teasing! But guess what, Rae?! What's happening next Wednesday will help you make a dynamite pie crust--even if you've never made one before. How's that for being even more tantalizing?!

What are your recipes to make ahead and freeze for the holidays or any time?

I thought slow cookers were bad for cooking meat because of they didn't heat the meat high enough for the food to be safe? What happened to this word of caution. That turkey breast recipe looks great for the slow cooker but I need to know the answer to this before I try it!

Hi, I am having trouble with organizing my recipe box ever since the most recent redesign of the site. Specifically, I would like to transfer my favorite Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes into Thanksgiving and Christmas folders that I already had in place. The "organize" feature seems to be missing. That was a great feature and I really miss it. Does anyone know of a way to organize the recipe box now?
Nov. 22, 2009 4:35 pm
Hi again, I found the tool for organizing the recipe box! When you click on the name of a recipe in your recipe box, the word "tools" appears under the contributor's name. If you click on "tools" you can copy one recipe at a time to your folders. The old method gave a lot more options and could copy or move several recipes at a time. I miss the old method, but I am glad that I found at least this tool.

Ok now its Monday! :) Where's the info? hehe I know you all are busy but can you tell I'm impatient?

Oh, gosh! You all have some great questions! This is Judith and I'll do my best to answer them. For Lornia's question about make-ahead holiday recipes, check out this Allrecipes article about "Make-Aheads" that includes a batch of easy, make-in-advance starters, sides and desserts: Yep, the bird is harder to make ahead. For Tricia's question about cooking a turkey or even part of one in a slow cooker, the only (safe) way you might do this is to cook turkey parts (unfrozen, of course) and fill the slow cooker at least half-full with a liquid. For Rae, I promise there will be more info this afternoon about what's coming. Promise!
