18 Thanksgiving Cooking Hacks To Save The Day. #10 Is Golden.

There’s so much to do to prepare for the big Thanksgiving meal. Here’s some tips to make it a little easier.

#1. No roasting rack? No problem.

Elevate the turkey on a layer of quartered onions, carrots and celery. Bonus: They will add flavor to your drippings.

#2. Want fluffier mashed potatoes?

Add a little baking powder to make mashed potatoes extra fluffy.

#3. Not enough space in the fridge? No problem.

Fill a cooler with ice packs and your lesser-used condiments. Voila! You have a whole free shelf.

#4. Let your dishwasher scrub the potatoes for you.

Use the quick rinse cycle and don't use soap! You can do this with other vegetables too.

#5. Keep the mashed potatoes in a slow cooker.

There's nothing worse than cold mashed potatoes. Set the temperature on low and stir every hour. This will give you an extra burner for other dishes.

#6. Print or write out recipes and tape them to your cabinets for easy access.
