Nope. When I host a gay event, that always happens. (The guests pitching in to clean up) but not so much with my relatives.

I don't mind these, either. I translate them to "I'm sad my grandmother passes away, and I'm thinking about her on what would have been her birthday." I feel that's a current event in my friend's...

I usually take a long walk with my husband after the main prep, while the bird is cooking. (Someone else is home in case ti catches on fire. Which seems awfully unlikely.) Then I usually shower and...

No, at least for the past several years, they have kept feedback from major employers a tightly held secret.

Ah, I see why you like it. That makes sense to me. I'm certainly in the camp that likes the crunchy corner piece of brownie. And if I'd grown up with crunchy, rather than soggy, seasoned bread i...

Truth be told, I don't care for soggy-bread stuffing, with or without sausage, inside or outside the bird. But other people...

I, also, get asked to roast, because I do it better than anyone else in the family. I don't serve dry meat. The key is to use a thermometer and not over-cook it. I think brining lets you get away...
