Advice for Cooking Your First Thanksgiving Meal

We asked, you answered! Here’s some of your best advice for cooking your first Thanksgiving meal from our Twitter stream and Facebook page:

“Breathe!” -Karyn J.

“Get up early and take your time. If people offer help, TAKE IT. If someone suggests to bring a dish, SAY YES. The first turkey meal is always very stressful so keep a glass of wine handy too.” -Vanessa G.

“Order it!!” -Nicole D.

“Don’t take on too much! Ask all of your guests to bring something and stick to the recipes you know and love…this keeps stress levels down and helps prevent kitchen catastrophes.” -Amy G.

“Start early, drink wine, have fun!” -Lisa L.

“Hire a chef?” -Sarah N.

“Shop for the food early, not on the weekend before or the day before. Preferably Monday when everyone is at work or late at night. Any other time just adds stress! Cook as much as you can or at least prep stuff on Wednesday, so Thursday will be a throw-it-together-early-in-the-morning day and you can enjoy the time with your family.” -Debbie R.

“Let someone else do it!” -Martie G.

About Jessy

Hometown: St. Louis, MO Favorite Color: Pistachio Favorite Movie Wedding Moment: The airplane scene in The Wedding Singer Jessy is a Jr. Writer at Tiny Prints. When she was seven, she declared herself "Jessy" (from her given name, Jessica) because she wanted to be a little different. Which is exactly what led her to Tiny Prints-her love for all things unique, memorable and personal! Letterpress printing makes her swoon and she has an affinity for fresh designs with a hint of vintage. In addition to her passion for paper goods, Jessy loves dogs, llamas, autumn, farmers' markets, live music, skeleton keys, extra sprinkles, beating boys in sports, running, antique stores and a book that’s hard to put down.
