Thanksgiving is one of the few times a year that we can meet with our family and friends to relax, and of course, feast. While it should serve as an enjoyable day, it can also become stressful; especially when playing the role of host. Concerns will arise – cleaning the house, buying supplies, creating a guest list, and most importantly, deciding what to make. You may be running around preparing food and serving others but before you know it, dinner is over and it’s is time for dessert.
