04 Tips for preparing a Thanksgiving turkey Real Estate

11 07 12

For home cooks, preparing a Thanksgiving turkey is a rite of passage. Not only do snafu opportunities abound, but there is added pressure on the holiday to prepare and serve a perfect meal for family and guests. Whether you’re a seasoned Thanksgiving chef, or a newbie in the kitchen, these tips can help eliminate the stress associated with prepping your meal’s centerpiece: Prepare Ahead It’s hard to perfect a turkey when you’ve got endless side dishes to worry over simultaneously, so accept guests’ offers to bring some favorites. Assemble accompaniments to your meal in advance, especially sauces and dips, which actually improve in flavor over time. Remember, you only have so much space in an oven, so schedule cooking accordingly to ensure everything is ready at mealtime. Talk Turkey You may not have aced home economics when you were in school, but the folks at the Turkey Talk hotline are experts in the field. You can get most turkey conundrums solved by giving them a call at 1-800-BUTTERBALL, or by emailing them at talkline@butterball.com. Work Smart Maintaining your knives streamlines kitchen operations, especially the formidable task of carving your Thanksgiving turkey. But knife sharpening doesn’t need to be daunting. In fact,

every home cook should get comfortable doing this regularly. With the right tools, your knives will last longer, and be safer and more efficient. Generally, you should hone or polish knife edges after each use and sharpen knives regularly with a high-quality sharpener. Look for a sharpener that offers diversity. For example, Edgeware’s adjustable knife sharpeners include coarse and fine sharpening slots for dull and damaged knives and regular maintenance respectively, and are ideal for sharpening a variety of knives from straight edge blades to serrated. For how-to videos and other tips on restoring your knives to their original factory angle, visit www.edgewareproducts.com. When preparing the Thanksgiving meal, make sure your knives are sharp in the kitchen and to sharpen any knives that will be used to carve your bird at the table. Do this before setting the table so you won’t forget. Getting it Right The general wisdom is to allot 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of turkey per person. Just be sure your turkey is big enough to provide you with leftovers! There’s nothing more satisfying than a turkey sandwich for lunch the day after Thanksgiving. Ready your bird for the oven by following the National Turkey Federation guideline on thawing: for every 4 1/2 pounds of frozen

turkey, thaw for 24-hours in the refrigerator. You don’t need to be Julia

Child to master the art of turkeys. By maintaining your kitchen tools and preparing

ahead, you can make Turkey Day successful and stress-free. -StatePoint

Ways to make your home festive this season

Though one of the best parts of winter is getting out of the cool, crisp air and into the cozy, comfort of your home, trendsetting crafters

are bringing the beauty of nature inside their houses when decorating for the holidays this year. “This holiday season, the

outdoors are in,” says Nicole Long, Manager of Inspiration for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. “Pine cones, evergreen, moss and grapevine

can give your traditional décor a rustic, natural look.” If you’re having trouble getting inspired, here are some ideas from the experts at JoAnn: I Dress up the entrance of your home with an especially festive look. Wire a small twig wreath to a larger grapevine wreath and then decorate with dazzling embellishments, stems and greenery. I Give your mantel a cozy makeover by hanging knitted stockings, embellished with berries and leaves. Then fill them with gifts galore! I Deck the halls with pictures of loved ones and celebrations past. Turn a traditional pine garland of berries and pine cones into a personal keepsake of fond memories by adding handcrafted wire frames of your favorite family photos. I Paint pine cones red, gold, burgundy and green. Don’t be afraid to add a little glitz with a coat of clear glitter on each one. Showcase them

in a simple glass container for a beautiful centerpiece or side table decoration. I Fashion a hanging basket out of grapevine wreath. Place battery-operated lights within the basket and fill with ornaments. I For a delicious holiday goodie bag, dip peppermint sticks in melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles or chopped nuts. Place them in treat bags with ribbon then give to family and friends throughout the season. I Print Victorian-era designs onto paper, then decoupage onto wood shapes. Glitter the edges and tie on a shiny ribbon to create a lovely, vintage-inspired ornament. For more tips and directions on transforming your home for the holiday season, visit www.JoAnn.com/projects. By bringing a bit of nature into your home this season, you can evoke its spirit all throughout the house. -StatePoint

10 Keep your home safe from allergens this season Real Estate

11 07 12

The weather may be getting cooler, but that doesn’t mean people who are impacted by allergens are in the clear. From dust and dander to seasonal pollen, millions of people will sneeze, wheeze and cough their way through the months ahead. The experts at Sun Products, makers of Snuggle, all and Wisk laundry products, offer these steps to help make your home a safer haven from that which afflicts you. Bust Dust Allergens are hiding all over the home. Regular dusting and vacuuming will eliminate much of the problem. Just be sure to clean your vacuum filter often. And don’t overlook fabrics in your home like upholstered chairs and drapes, as dust, mites and other allergens can collect here easily. Don’t suffer while cleaning. Use a mask to avoid coming into contact with the

allergens you’re trying to eliminate. Wash Safely The irony of keeping your home spic and span for the sake of allergy management is that many cleaning supplies can aggravate the problem. Ammonia, for example, can be quite harsh on the eyes and nose. Using a hypoallergenic, fragrancefree, all-purpose cleaner will make scrubbing the bathroom and kitchen a much more pleasant experience. Likewise, bedding and clothing are notorious for collecting and trapping common allergens. According to a study by Grana, an international science journal, a large t-shirt can trap up to 7 million pollen grains on a peak pollen day. Remove everyday allergens trapped in your garments and bedding with a fragrance free detergent designed for sensitive skin. For example, all free clear detergent, which

is the number one detergent brand recommended by dermatologists and allergists for sensitive skin, will eliminate 99 percent of tree and grass pollen, and ragweed pollen, the number one fall allergen. Free of potential irritants like dyes and perfumes, it will also help bust pet dander and dust mite matter. More information can be found at www.alllaundry.com/freeclear/. Keep Allergens Out When you walk around outside your clothes can collect and absorb allergens and irritants. Shoes are magnets for grass, tree and ragweed pollen. Leave your shoes on the porch, especially after walking through grass. Change out of your clothes when you get home, depositing them directly into the hamper. Stay Vigilant You can stay informed with pollen-level maps and recent allergen news. Visit the all

How to make your home pet-friendly 11

“Sleeping With the Beast,” an intimate look at the caninehuman relationship and the increasing role dogs play in our lives and homes. “Just as you would take steps to childproof your home, so too should you make the same concessions for your dog.” Ryan points out that by taking a few simple steps, you can improve your dog’s home life and your pet ownership experience: I Be sure proper fencing is

installed around your yard. I When not at home, confine dogs to a certain area of the house to ensure their safety. A first-floor room is preferable in the event of emergency, such as fire. I Avoid installing wall-towall carpet in public areas of the house. Because of traffic flow, wood, stone, or tile floors with area rugs are better alternatives. I When it comes to furniture, consider material that’s

easy to clean and can withstand some abuse. Dogs may enjoy mashing stuffing in pillows into comfortable shapes. For sensitive dogs, opt for hypoallergenic stuffing. I Dogs have a tendency to rub against walls. Delicate papers can easily become damaged. Opt for paint over wall paper. It’s washable and less costly. I Consult your veterinarian about nutrition.

Whether you’re a new dog owner or you and your precious pooch have been best pals for years, there’s always room to make your home more pet friendly. Doing so will not only keep your dog safer and happier, but can also help protect your belongings and furniture from canine destruction. “Your dog is a member of the family,” says Dale Ryan, an animal photographer and author of the new book

try and fish can keep them healthier. Grain-free treats and a raw food diet also work well. I Stainless steel bowls inside a stone trough container will keep water from spilling all over the floor. For a feeding bowl, use white buffalo China -- it’s heavy and there’s never food residue left behind. I If your dog likes to sleep in bed with you but is too old or small to make the jump from floor to bed, consider library steps. I Don’t forgo a duvet just because you have dogs. Place a heavy flannel sheet, which won’t shift like satin or cotton, over the duvet for your dog to sleep on. On your master bed use flannel sheets and pillowcases to keep bed linens clean. I Dog beds should be hypoallergenic and covered in cotton, which is easy to wash. If you have wooden floors, the bottom of the bed should be ultra-suede fabric; so floors won’t be scuffed or scratched. Avoid wicker baskets because they can scratch your floor and your dogs may be tempted to chew them. More information about Ryan’s new book can be found online at www.sleepingwiththebeast.net. Remember, dog ownership is a big responsibility. But petproofing your home can make the experience a more rewarding one for both you and your four-legged companion. -StatePoint

Meals give you an opportunity to enjoy what you love – time with your family, friends and the chance to relish a well-made dish. Unfortunately, meals can often feel hurried, especially when you’re juggling daily work responsibilities and household tasks. Any shortcuts you can take in the kitchen will allow you time to do the things you love the most. Here are some time-saving tips that will help you slow down and savor every meal of the week: Stay Organized You’ve probably heard the old saying, “a place for everything and everything in its place.” Make this your kitchen mantra. Searching endlessly for needed utensils while you’re in the throes of meal preparation will take a major bite out of your evening. Use tools like alphabetized spice racks and drawer organizers to help you keep your most used items handy and easily found. Go Oven-Free It’s possible to get the taste of an oven-baked meal without the oven or the hassle. For those busy times

where you find yourself running between sports practices and book clubs, keep a quick, wholesome family size meal in your freezer that serves as a complete meal – lunch, dinner or any time. For instance, Marie Callender’s has created a whole new line of meals called Comfort Bakes, including Baked Mac & Cheese and Savory Chicken & Rice Bake, that are made with special attention to detail and quality ingredients –– like real cheddar cheese and white meat chicken. These dishes deliver homemade goodness to your family table. With these dishes you can expect oven-baked taste from the microwave, providing evenly cooked meals in just minutes, minimizing burnt edges and eliminating the need for a stir step. Quick dinner and dessert ideas can be found at www.MarieCallendersMeals.com. Stock Up Your fridge and pantry are like a food library. Be sure you always have your go-to ingredients on hand. When you begin to run low on staples like milk, eggs, onions, flour and sugar, immediately add

the items to your shopping list so you never run out. A surprise need for a trip to the convenience store is anything but convenient. Plug in to Slow Down Create enjoyable ways to slow down during meal time. Dinner time is often the first chance many of us get to catch our breath during the day, so it can be an ideal time to connect with loved ones. Learn the ropes of video conferencing and nurture your most meaningful relationships by setting up a video conference at your kitchen table and hosting a dinner date each week. With today’s technology, video conferencing easily allows you to have a “virtual dinner date” with friends and family across the country, or even the world. Meal time is about more than eating. It’s about the pleasure and comfort of a good, sit-down meal. By streamlining your efforts in the kitchen, you can give yourself more time to sit back and enjoy what you’ve prepared. -StatePoint
