Santa Clause crosses 7th Avenue and with that we are transitioned to The National Dog Show. You’re just about to sit down and be consumed by the adorable dogs when all of a sudden you smell smoke… In your lapse of attention you realized you just burnt your turkey. Sounds like something out of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, right? Well thanks to today’s technology fixation there is an app to help you avoid these kinds of problems. Here are a couple apps to consider using to help you not only with planning the meal, but save your turkey, side dishes and Thanksgiving according to Business2Community:

1. Time to Roast
While this app costs $1.99, the price is worth it as it takes out any guesswork involved in the process of cooking the turkey. By selecting various settings (temperature units, oven type, and preheating times) as well as the type of meat and the weight, this app will calculate the perfect cooking time and the temperature it should be at. You can also enter the time at which you want to have your food on the table and it will calculate a timeline for your cooking; from preheating to serving. Now that $1.99 sounds more like a steal of a deal, right?

2. Snapguide
This FREE how-to guide shows you step-by-step visual guides to a variety of Thanksgiving recipes. This will cover dishes from appetizers to desserts. A bonus to those who want their food to not only taste good but look good before eating it is that it gives visual presentations on DIY projects.

3. KitchenPad Timer
Those who have experience cooking on Thanksgiving know that feeling like we have to have eight of us at times in order to keep up with the progress of all the dishes cooking at the same time. This app is for you. Users are given visuals of burners and oven timers, which you can name individually, add designated temperatures, set different alarms for each, and keep track of the time for each food item. This helpful app costs only $1.99 as well.

For those who are cooking I wish you the best of luck and remind you check these apps out if you want to save your turkey (not the liver- sorry Dan Akroyd). So from me to you- Happy Thanksgiving!
