Ask Chef Christy Showcase

Thanksgiving Round-Up

Ask Chef Christy first started because of all the calls I get at this time of year.  As soon as Turkey Day looms on the horizon, my phone heats up with calls from friends saying “I have a cooking question for you!”   I’ve written many posts over the past few years concerning Thanksgiving foods, so I’ve linked to those posts in this one to make it easier to find them.  If you have any other questions, don’t be shy, Ask Chef Christy!
