In the fullness of time, turkey time will yield to leftover turkey sandwich time, and so the circle of life progresses. But as you work your way through that pile of turkey in the fridge, you can begin to feel that perhaps time has stopped. To assure yourself that you'll make it to the other side of leftovers, and with a smile on your face to boot, it's important to keep your sandwiches fresh by using something a little more exciting than mayo. With that in mind, here are 7 tasty turkey sandwich ingredients that can make your leftovers almost as delicious as Thanksgiving itself! -By Elizabeth Stark and Brian CampbellRead More »

Today: Mashed potatoes are the glue that holds any feast together -- we'd just rather they didn't taste like glue.
People have strong opinions about mashed potatoes. Why? Because they can go so terribly wrong -- and become a gummy, mortar-like substance. Jeffrey Steingarten even devotes an entire chapter in The Man Who Ate Everything to mashing the tuber, and Joël Robuchon won a Michelin star for his take on the traditional mash. You should approach potatoes with a clear and deliberate plan, depending on if you desire a fluffier or more rustic end result. If smooth potatoes are the goal, then smooth potatoes you shall have. There will be no comments from that picky guest: "What's this? A lump I see in my mash?"
Not all potatoes enter into the mashing race on equal footing: Which type should you...Read More »

This year, I'm putting those leftovers to good use -- and you should, too. Just follow this recipe for an incredibly simple but wonderfully delicious turkey and mashed potato potpie. The best part about this meal is that it calls for ingredients that you'll probably already have on hand following your family's feast. This is the best way to enjoy one last taste of the holiday (while doing about half of the work). Try it out on your leftovers this weekend!"

Today's recipe is not only delicious and easy, but it makes a big batch, so it's perfect for sharing with all of your friends and family during the holidays. It's a "jamaretti" cookie (a.k.a. an amaretti cookie with a jam center) with a sugar glaze. These little treats are every bit as delightful as jam-filled thumbprints but take about half the time to make since they're sliced after baking (meaning you don't need a single cookie cutter to make this recipe). And since this dough can be prepped and frozen up to a week in advance, you can plan ahead for your next cookie swap! Happy holidays."

If you are missing an ingredient for your Thanksgiving meal, you can just dash out to the grocery store at the last minute, right? While more and more retailers are opening their doors to shoppers on Thursday, hoping that the convenience of an extra shopping day and first dibs on Black Friday sales will boost revenues, many retail workers are, understandably, against the idea.Read More »
In Chicago, a group of Whole Foods employees held a strike on Wednesday to protest some of the stores' decision to open on the holiday and bring attention to the what they say are hardships faced by people who are scheduled to work. "They feel like they should have the right to be with their families on Thanksgiving," Deivid Rojas, communications director for the Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago, a union of retail and fast food workers, tells Yahoo Shine. "And they are concerned with the general trend of retailers being open on the holiday."
