Mark Dommen, chef-partner of San Francisco’s One Market Restaurant, advises viewers against the wrong turkey-carving approach at Thanksgiving: Do not use a dull knife, do not carve at the dining table (as much as you might want to), and do not hack at your bird willy-nilly.

Easy Roasted Acorn Squash
Roasted acorn squash couldn't be easier, or more delicious. A little butter, salt, freshly ground pepper, and a sprinkle of brown sugar to emphasize the squash's natural sweetness, plus about an hour in the oven, and you have a gorgeously caramelized side (or main dish, if you stuff the squash), with a pool of glaze in the center of each piece.
For these Rice Krispy Treats, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers.

Easy Pie Crust
Homemade pie crust really elevates your desserts (and savory tarts and quiches too), and isn't as hard as you might think, especially if you use a food processor to make the dough. Even if you don't roll it out exactly evenly or press it in to your pie plate perfectly, the buttery taste and flaky texture will more than make up for any cosmetic imperfections. Give this easy pie crust recipe a try next time you bake -- and if you want to use it for a savory dish, just leave out the sugar in the recipe.
