Unfortunately, some of us have to cook, whether we want to or not. Thanksgiving is the one day of the year when even novice cooks are expected to put a multi-course meal on the table, and every dish has to be perfect. Not all of us have traditional recipes that have been passed down from one generation to the next, but we do have ways to find new recipes that are equally delicious.
If this is your first year trying to pull together a turkey day feast, or if you’re just in the mood to try new dishes, you can compile everything you need to know on your smartphone or tablet. There are apps that let you shop for your ingredients, defrost and cook your turkey, plus put together a tasty array of side dishes. Here are some of the best apps for cooking a great Thanksgiving dinner.
