- burnt Thanksgiving turkeyBy Amanda Berne
If there were ever a time for Murphy's Law, Thanksgiving is it. With multiple pots and pans on the stove, a bird in the oven and relatives underfoot, it's almost impossible to have a fiasco-free holiday. Burnt turkey? Been there. Glue-like mashed potatoes? Done that. Mistakes happen-it's almost inevitable. Here are a few last-minute tips so your sanity doesn't burn up with the stuffing. Photo by iStockphoto
Disaster 1: Burnt Turkey Top Chef contestant Ryan Scott remembers the first-and last-time he burned a turkey. "At the time I thought that higher heat was better," he says. "But I got caught up in the football game. The bird was burned on the outside, but uncooked." Once he peeled off the burnt skin, he was concerned about the meat drying out. He smeared butter, chopped parsley, garlic and shallots on the turkey, and reduced the temperature. While Scott missed the "ta-da" moment of carving the turkey tableside, he does admit to the ease of slicing in the kitchen.

1. His fears. "Women aren't typically reluctant to share fears," says Audrey Sherman, PhD, developer of PsychSkills. But divulging that he's scared of, say, thunder or big dogs, can make him appear weak. More importantly, the fears were shared with you in confidence; telling his secrets shows you're not safe to confide in, says Sue Johnson, PhD, author of Love Sense: The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships.
