I like to cook, and my 21 year old says my Thanksgiving dressing is the best…

He’s my son!

But I’m not a very organized cook. I’ve been known to be in the middle of prepping the turkey and have to run to the store for twine…or have 6 meat thermometers that don’t work.

So this year I’m trying to get ahead of the game, and here’s my first ‘checklist’. I know these are all tools I need to make sure I have in my kitchen…and that I can find them!

Let’s do a couple of these checklists together during the holidays, want to? I figure if we do all this ahead of time, the day should go a lot smoother.

I did a little scouting around at williamssonoma.com and surlatable.com. and I stopped by Sur La Table. I found some nice items at both stores.

And I’m obsessed with this Revol casserole dish in black.


I had never heard of Revol before. It’s produced in France. It goes from freezer to oven to microwave, and this new black line has a finish that keeps food from absorbing oil, so I think it might make things nice and crispy. I think it may be perfect for my Thanksgiving dressing!
