Trials and tribulations in your Thanksgiving kitchen? Have no fear, Chef Shelley Wiseman is here.
A great Thanksgiving spread comes with a fair amount of stress. No, we’re not talking about hidden family issues. We’re talking about simple cooking frustrations. What goes with cranberries besides oranges? How can I spice up grandma’s bland stuffing recipe? And for the newbies, there are two especially daunting tasks: the roasting and the carving.
