We’ve got essential tricks to cut down on prep time—like washing potatoes in your dishwasher—and tips for keeping your turkey breast moist (hint: weave a bacon blanket over your bird). We’ve also featured hacks for making the perfect pie, cooking a vegetarian turducken, and browning a turkey with flashlights (in case you lose power and/or want to get really weird). We’ve got you covered—now breathe, make a prep list, and drink some bourbon.
