Alright, you’ve got 7 days until the Thanksgiving feasting begins.  If you are a bit inexperienced in the kitchen, Thanksgiving may feel a bit overwhelming!  However, I was just forwarded a link to a fantastic resource developed by Alice Henneman at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. 

This link has articles on:

There’s no better way to learn a new recipe or a new skill then to jump in and go for it.  And with these resources at your fingertips, you might perform better than you think!
