If you’re a Thanksgiving chef amateur, you are probably at a loss for what you should be making – let alone what ingredients you should even be using for Thanksgiving.

These are all big decisions with potentially fatal consequences, because as we all know ThanksgivingĀ may, in fact, be about hanging out with family and friends but it’s most definitely (and more importantly) about the delicious food that you can eat without being judged.

While you probably have been letting your mom or significant other do all the work in the past, not this time! It may seem incredibly complicated but we promise it’s as easy as – say it with me, now – pie and tastes as good, too.

From what to look for in the grocery store to dinner etiquette and how to fold a napkin (the adult way), they’ve got all your bases covered.
