Make your Thanksgiving Day dinner run more smoothly by avoiding these top three Thanksgiving dinner mistakes:

1. Lack of planning: Write out a plan for the meal. It will make things easier.

2. Over-thinking: Don’t feel pressured to make a turducken or to try some recipe you’ll find in a family cookbook. Thanksgiving is about tradition.

3. Doing it all by yourself: Thanksgiving is a marathon, especially for the cook in the kitchen. A little help will keep you sane.
