NEWSROOM- Thanksgiving is one of the hardest holidays to cook for.

Although students are normally not the ones cooking, they are most definitely the ones eating.

As technology advances, so does the cooking.  There are many devices and applications becoming more popular that  help make cooking Thanksgiving Dinner easier for the chef and better for the diner.

Sometimes it is hard to keep track of when the turkey is supposed to go in the oven, when you’re supposed to start making the mashed potatoes and when the macaroni and cheese is supposed to come out of the oven.  Not knowing when your food is supposed to start and be done results in poor quality food.  To keep better track of what you are cooking, you can use the app MultiTimer.  MultiTimer allows you to have a visual countdown of multiple tasks, making the task of pulling different items out of the oven at different times much more organized.

Another helpful app for Thanksgiving prep is MealBoard.  MealBoard allows you to take recipes from any website and put them all into one place, making it more efficient than printing out ten different recipes and fumbling around trying to find the right one with your hands covered in turkey grease or mashed potatoes.  The application also allows the user to create a shopping list based on the ingredients that are needed from each recipe that they plan on using for the dinner.

Now if multiple people contribute in the meal, then you can use apps such as Venmo or Splitwise.  These help the user split the money and with others so everyone can make an equal contribution to the dinner.

Now of course, if you don’t want to cook or for some reason don’t like Thanksgiving food you could just UberEats your dinner.

Lastly, you don’t just want to be sitting in front of the oven for the hours on end that the turkey takes to cook.  To have fun with family while you wait, you can play the Charades Spin-Off game, Head’s Up or you can watch football in your kitchen by using the NFL app.

Whether it is cooking, keeping track of the preparation or spicing things up during the process, technology is here this holiday season to give you a helping hand.
