Airs Thursday, November 28 at 10 a.m. On Thanksgiving morning help is on the way for Thanksgiving cooks, kitchen helpers and dinner guests on this, the biggest cooking day of the year.

Quickly becoming a Thanksgiving morning tradition, past shows have included everything from a cross-country trucker cooking his Thanksgiving dinner on the manifold to a panicked first-time cook who didn't realize a turkey needs to be thawed. Lynne handles all questions with wit, expertise and laughter.
