    Are you as full and satisfied and happy and filled with turkey and stuffing and veggies and cranberry sauce and everything else as I am? Thanksgiving 2013 has, sadly, come and gone. Can you believe it? Fun family times, cooking, eating, drinking, watching football, saying what we're thankful for ... but now, while the last thing you want to think about is eating, you still have ALL THOSE LEFTOVERS.

    What to do with all that leftover turkey? Of course it's delicious with turkey sandwiches, but maybe you want to switch it up a bit and cook something a little heartier (and cheesier) to get you through these freezing temperatures. How about some pasta? Sweet! Just check out this Turkey Tetrazzini recipe from Pioneer Woman. As she said, you'll want to roast an entire turkey just to have enough left over for this recipe. There might be a big of chopping involved, but all you really have to do is put everything into one big pot!

    Most people in my life either love or hate pumpkin pie, but just about everyone can agree on apple pie. It's the all-American classic, particularly perfect for the holiday season, but really, delicious just about any time of year. You might even argue any time of day (my husband would!), but there's a more acceptable way to gobble it up in the a.m., well before your big turkey dinner has even been served: As French toast, of course!

    Bonus: This mouthwatering Apple Pie French Toast recipe is so easy and versatile, you could even go off-recipe and use leftovers from your Thanksgiving apple pie as the topping. Nommmm!

    Check it out ...

    You know what's even more satisfying than Thanksgiving dinner? Yep. You guessed it. Thanksgiving leftovers. And even though there are a variety of ways to use up your remaining turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, cranberries, and the like -- nothing quite beats this Ultimate Leftover Turkey Sandwich recipe from Kraft.

    And honestly, it really doesn't matter what ingredients you have on hand the day after the big feast. You can totally customize this sandwich with whatever's in the fridge -- and whatever your favorite Thanksgiving dishes happen to be.

    In my family, Thanksgiving stuffing isn't exactly a science. It usually comes from a bag, gets cooked in whichever way the instructions say you're supposed to cook it, and then the flavor doesn't matter because it's doused with gravy. With that said, I feel sort of bad that we haven't given the stuffing the attention it deserves the past, oh, 20 years or so. The hard truth? Homemade stuffing is totally amazing. Heck, it can be fantabulous! I've seen the light -- and that light is homemade stuffing.

    The only catch? You just have to go about making it the right way. Here, check out these 5 mistakes that ruin stuffing:

    Nervous about hosting Thanksgiving dinner this week? Never fear! Daphne Brogdon of How to Be a Mom is here with tips for your Best Thanksgiving Ever! Daphne says Thanksgiving is a time when moms get to shine. I don't understand how the rest of the video relates to this statement. I was expecting a makeover scene where "Mom" spends the day at the spa and emerges looking relaxed and gorgeous. Whatever. Anyhoo, Daphne's vision of the perfect Thanksgiving is totally achievable ... depending on what your idea of perfect is. You see, there is Thanksgiving fantasy, and then there is Thanksgiving reality. Daphne shows both.

    Just because we're all celebrating the same holiday for the same reason doesn't mean we're all celebrating it the same way. Thanks to the results of a new Thanksgiving survey, which includes a couple of pretty cool and interesting maps, we've discovered that, depending on which state you live in, you are either eating dinner super early or late. Even the number of beers or glasses of vino you choose to down has less to do with how unbearable your relatives are and more to do with where in the country you reside.

    Check out the results and see if your personal Thanksgiving matches the one in your region.

    I love everything about Thanksgiving -- the smell, the taste, the house bursting at the seams. It's my favorite holiday, by far. So, of course, I had very high expectations for my first Thanksgiving as a mother. And of, course, it was a collosal failure. I undercooked and then burned the turkey, my daughter's nap was distrupted by the smoke alarm and we both ended up in tears at the dinner table. So much for perfect planning. To ensure that your holiday is a tad better than our first together, I present you with some tips. Cheers.

    Last year, I wrote about some non-traditional things I'm ashamed to be thankful for. You know, the types of things that would probably get you kicked out of Thanksgiving dinner?  Like: I am thankful for stars like Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum, and J.Lo, who make 40 seem not so old. 

    Well, this year, I thought I'd focus on some things I'm thankful for as a parent. Sure, the list may be a bit superficial, but I bet you're thankful for similar stuff.

    Soooo, I say we take a sec to forgive each other for mentioning these things and then we, well, mention them.  I'll start:

    One of the huge perks of being a chef is truly knowing how to cook the most amazing meals ever. Perhaps that's more of a perk of knowing a chef ... so they can cook for you. But there are hazards to this profession and the sweet and perky Giada De Laurentiis fell victim to one of those hazards and there was blood!

    While filming the annual Thanksgiving Live Special on the Food Network with Bobby Flay, Ina Garten, and Alton Brown (my mouth is watering just thinking of what these chefs were cooking), Giada had a knife accident and cut herself very badly. Oh nos! I picture Bobby Flay rushing over to help her, lovingly tenderizing her hand, Alton running to get medical help, and Ina not really noticing, just focused on her cooking. But that's not what happened.
