Looking for Thanksgiving holiday cooking, food, and recipe help from your iPhone or iPad? Two Thanksgiving mobile apps will come to your rescue. And they’re both free. Now that’s something to be thankful for!
First, on your iPhone or iPad, be sure to download the free Chow Thanksgiving Dinner Coach — especially if you want a basic guide to follow for a fail-safe dinner. The app pares down the essentials, offering nine easy and delicious traditional Thanksgiving recipes accompanied by clear, follow-along instructions. Plus, a step-by-step timeline will guide you through the entire Thanksgiving week and day, so that you can serve everything on time and tasting great.
Second, if you’re searching for help that’s a bit beyond the basics, and you have an iPad, here’s all you need: Thanksgiving Menu Maker from Fine Cooking, by Taunton Interactive. The Menu Makers feature over on the Fine Cooking website is, in my opinion, a true blessing. Sure, I can find recipes everywhere. But choosing the right ones to be put together into the perfect menu and dinner event? That’s the hard part. This iPad app offers 75 all-time favorite Thanksgiving recipes — plus a customized shopping list, a schedule, how-to videos (e.g., on brining a turkey and perfecting pie crust), 21 turkey tips, what to drink, Thanksgiving 911 (for fixing any disasters), and suggestions on what to do with all those leftovers!
We hope these Thanksgiving mobile apps are helpful.
To get you moving in the right direction, let’s start with the main attraction. Here’s the recipe for Brined Roast Turkey with Sage Butter Rub.
