How to cook a turkey without losing your mind

Better Homes and Gardens is ready for Thanksgiving -- and ready to help you.

Its online Survival Guide tells you everything, from how big a turkey to buy, to how to stuff it and when to put it in the oven.

The holiday meal planner lets you choose from a number of different side dishes and desserts and provides recipes complete with nutritional information -- if you dare to look.

Then go to the shopping guide to see just what ingredients you need to buy for the recipes you've chosen.

There's a great question-and-answer section and a chance for you to add your comments to the discussion group.


Thanksgiving, Pilgrim style

If you'd like to get an idea of how the turkey was cooked at the first Thanksgiving, take a walking tour of Plimoth Plantation.

Just choose the photos you'd like to see of the living museum. There's a reconstructed Pilgrim village and a Native American hamlet.

World Village

Holiday entertainment for little ones

Kids should report directly to the Thanksgiving section of World Village. Here there are lots of activities for children, which may keep them busy while you're preparing dinner.

You'll need a printer for most of the fun and games. Choose from four different pages to color, four mazes to explore and a Thanksgiving crossword puzzle. There are also interactive games to play. Lastly, don't forget to download some of the cute Thanksgiving clip art.
