Kicking off this week, we’re partnering with our Time Inc. sister brands Cooking Light, Food & WineHealthReal SimpleSouthern Living and Sunset to bring you 60 days of amazing holiday video, with a new theme each week.

  • Week of Nov 9: Thanksgiving Turkey Week
  • Week of Nov 16: Thanksgiving Sides Week
  • Week of Nov 23: Thanksgiving Strategies

We’re kicking it off with Thanksgiving Turkey Week! Cooking Light saves the day with tips for preparing the season’s best Roasted Turkey. One of the best ways to get that amazing golden brown exterior on your turkey is to roast the turkey on high heat and then transfer to low heat to create a great, crispy skin on the outside and a tender, juicy bite on the inside. You can also choose to brine your turkey for a boost of added flavor and juiciness, like in this recipe for Apple Cider-Brined Turkey with Savory Herb Gravy. Whether you opt to purchase a fresh or frozen turkey, there are different ways to approach cooking each type, as well as how long you should defrost a frozen turkey depending upon how much it weighs. These tips are an amazing way to ensure your holiday meal goes smoothly and tastes amazing. Overall, the biggest piece of advice here is to not overcook the turkey, which is easy to accomplish by using a meat thermometer. 

Watch the clip below and stay tuned for more incredible recipes, advice and time-saving tips this holiday season from your friends at Time Inc!
