5 iPad apps for making the perfect Thanksgiving dinner

Sarah Jacobsson Purewal | Nov. 27, 2014
Cooking Thanksgiving dinner can be daunting. Not only must you prepare tons of food--some of it you've rarely cooked before--you've also got to make sure that it's all ready to hit the table at the same time. And you've got to keep all those plates spinning under the watchful eye of family members ready to remind you of every overcooked turkey breast, lumpy gravy, or overheated green bean casserole at every future get-together.

First, select your oven type (conventional, fan, gas), preheat time (10, 15, or 20 minutes), and units (Celsius/Fahrenheit, pounds/kilograms) in the settings menu. Then, select your meat (turkey's just one option of many) and its weight. Once you've entered in all these values, the app will spit out some instructions, including how long to sear and roast the meat.

Next, tap on Alarms. Here you can choose a time to eat, or you can choose to start cooking right away. If you pick a time to eat, the app will present you with a timeline of things to do (starting with "preheat oven" and ending with "carve and serve") based on when you want the turkey to be ready. If you choose to start cooking right away, you'll get the same timeline that will start immediately.
