Even professional cooks say cooking a Thanksgiving meal is stressful. CHOW comes to the rescue! Not only have we put together nine of the easiest and most delicious traditional Thanksgiving recipes, we've created a clear, follow-along game plan. You choose which dishes you want to make, and we give you a step-by-step timeline that guides you through the entire Thanksgiving day (and the two days before, too).

Like this:
Step 2 - Place the roasting pan across two burners over medium heat, Put the onion and celery from inside the roasted turkey, along with the roasted turkey neck, in the pan. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a flat spatula.

And of course there's a shopping list to get you in and out of the store quickly.

Get the bird on the table while keeping the potatoes creamy, the punch strong, and the green beans green. You too can be a Thanksgiving success story!

Here's your Thanksgiving menu:

Roasted Turkey
Apple and Sage Stuffing
Turkey Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Cranberry Sauce
Sauteed Green Beans
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Pumpkin Pie
Brandy-Apple Punch

Happy Thanksgiving!

I wanted a simple app with simple recipes with a simple list. I downloaded it a few minutes ago. I came back to rate it because it's awesome. You pick what you want and it gives you step-by-step instructions on what to buy and how to make it. It even lets you cross off what you already have at home. You can still look at the list of what you already have at home. I didn't want an app with difficult recipes. This is perfect!


I love this app! Granted, there is only one recipe choice for each dish, but making a variation is as easy as searching online. Our family has used this for three years now and it has become part of our tradition. It tells you what to buy, when to start prep., gives a full recipe and directions for each dish and allows you to "cross off" a completed step.

Saved my Holiday!

This was my first year hosting Thanksgiving and this App made it a breeze!! Before My brother-in-law arrived at our house, he warned his kids to behave and help as much as possible because I was probably going to be stressed. Instead they arrived and everything was pretty much ready, so I was standing there with a smile and a glass of wine. All because if this app. Thank you for a well prepared and stress free holiday!
