Fresh Ideas for the New Year
Host Thanksgiving on a Budget
Check out our strategies that can easily bring your friends together for the holidays without creating an economic crisis.
Work Space Special
Not every kitchen is dreamy. An outdated tiny oven and uneven burners can make cooking a challenge. So you'll need to have a plan. Start by making desserts or casseroles in advance -- they can keep in the refrigerator for days. Also, look to slow cookers for help with dishes such as stuffing and sweet potatoes. If you don't have one, ask to borrow a friend's. You will be able to cut down your time in front of the stove.
Serving Hint: To increase counter space, turn a table, bookcase, or even a washing machine into a work surface by simply adding a cutting board on top.
