Meet your Turkey Day secret weapon.
Thanksgiving is finally upon us!
After weeks of dreaming up different menus (with some help from a handful of our favorite chefs and cookbook authors), taste testing mashed potato techniques, and narrowing down our favorite roast turkey recipes, it's almost time to preheat the oven and set the table.
But even though we've gathered up some of our best tips and make-ahead dishes to make your Thanksgiving dinner smooth sailing from start to finish, there's always a chance that something might not go according to plan.

But the Hotline isn't your only tool for Thanksgiving success. We want your holiday to be as seamless and stress-free as possible (and delicious, too!), so we came up with a few other handy resources you can turn to: The Turkey Whisperer, your new go-to guide for anything and everything related to, well, turkey; and Dear Test Kitchen, a brand-new video series where our test kitchen director, Josh Cohen, answers questions inspired by the Hotline.
