Many people are doing their own cooking this Thanksgiving, and that's good.  But sometimes people forget the basics, and it becomes a complicated affair.  Well, being a master chef myself, I thought I'd help you (actually, I have the latest Reader's Digest, and I got the tips from them)

I know your kitchen isn't this big.  These folks are pros.  But you can cook like a pro too and keep it simple at the same time, according to the Reader's Digest article

Man, I wish I had read this last year.  You wouldn't believe what happened.  Let me tell you musically!

What are YOUR Thanksgiving nitemares?  Would love to know!
