My husband is working Thanksgiving and with a new baby, a 2 and 4 year old I am certain logically I should make my four pies tomorrow night. But the illogical part of me still wants them made on Thanksgiving. So I am wondering when everyone else makes their pies for Thursday ?

I need help on this. What should I make for dessert on Chistmas? We are having a rib roast with mashed potatoes, gravy, yorkshire pudding, roasted asparagus and one other green veg. But, dessert is a problem, so any suggestions are welcome. I'm open to any and all suggestions; no dessert is too rich or too light. Thanks!
This year is the first that I have decided to make fudge. I have checked out lots of recipes and some call for heavy cream, some call for sweetened condensed milk or even evaporated milk. Then there is the marshmallow issue; whole marshmallows, fluff, or none at all. So how do you make your fudge? And if you are feeling generous I would love recipes. Thanks so much.
So what is everybody bringing with them to the holday parties? I've got three Christmas parties over and above the family stuff and I feel its to early to go into cookies ( Mostly because I want some to last until Christmas). Do you just do the sweet treats or is there something amazing you make that you are known for?
I need help figuring out how to cook the turkey. I keep going back and forth between a bunch of methods I haven't tried before. I need suggestions. So far, I have smoked in smoker(usually do it in a grill), barned turkey a la America's Test kitchen, spatchcocked, or traditional. I did buy a kosher turkey so I didn't have to brine but even that is up to debate. I have made Thanksgiving dinner for 7 years. So i've got the timing, the sides, and even oven placement (Thanks GatorPam) but I just want a good turkey.. Please help me overcome the bird.

The other day I had my husband pick up some groceries. When, I was putting them away, to my utter shock and horror, I found... A can of Easy Cheese. I went through the seven stages of grief and now I think I am in acceptance. But, even so, make me feel better. What things do your friends or significant others eat that upset your heart; or your stomach?
Lebanese restaurants aren't rare in this city, but they aren't especially common either—a shame for New Yorkers who'd rather pig out on eggplant and yogurt than foie gras and pork belly. Lebanese cuisine is Southern Mediterranean meets Middle Eastern, and can be as conservative or as exotic as you care for. At the newly opened, surprisingly fancy Almayass in the Flatiron, both routes are open to you. Want to stick to pita, hummus, and kebabs? No problem. Curious about quail egg-topped Lebanese salumi, beet root dips, or bulgur-studded tartar? They can make that happen.
The cuisine draws from worldly influences (Spanish, Cuban, Mediterranean), but its soul is Italian—rich, homey and beautiful in its simplicity.
(except for Salad and Fruit/Cheese Board) On the various cooking forums I frequent, I continuously read posts from cooks griping about not having enough oven space for preparing the main course and sides, as well as other items which need...
