Whipping up a nice home-cooked meal seems simple enough, but the thought of hosting the whole family for Thanksgiving kinda makes us feel like we're going to hyperventilate.
But we hooked up with Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking and she gave us her ideas for pulling together a T-Day spread that will have us come out looking like we have the whole crew over every year. Turns out, all it takes is an amazing appetizer and the right beverage to distract our guests while they wait for the main event.
And we're going to go ahead and say a Kikkoman® Soy Sauce brine will pretty much solidify your spot in your family's Thanksgiving history. Not even kidding you guys, adding soy sauce to your brine is going to build the flavor and ensure that you have the tenderest, juiciest, most delicious Thanksgiving turkey ever.
