Sharing Another One of Her Gems
December 6, 2014
Have made several dishes for years from Ina's books. Her time saving tips for Thanksgiving are priceless. We all struggle to have multiple dishes all on the table at the same time and remain warm. Her tips allow you to prepare a few days ahead, so you actually have time to visit with guests and not stress about having your turkey and all the side dishes warm and ready together. She's so brilliant that way! And so simple!
Pros: Easy to Use, so simple
