Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

How to Dress Up Like Disney's Maleficent


Halloween is a fun time to dress up and be someone else for the night. I gravitate towards darker characters like witches and vampires. This year the perfect choice is Maleficent. I especially love this costume idea, because both kids and adults would know who I'm pretending to be. Last year I was Wednesday from The Addams Family, and sadly too many little kids asked, "Who are you??" Clearly their parents had yet to introduce them to one of the best movies ever. But with the popular Disney movie Maleficent, I'm quite certain I won't get that question this Halloween. If only I could talk me daughter into being Aurora instead of Anna or Elsa! As Maleficent is a very popular costume for 2014, there are a lot of different costume options. *This content contains affiliate links.

Accessories for Maleficent Women's Costume

Of course you can't be Maleficent without the right accessories. The single most important one is the horns. Most of the costumes come with horns, but I'm not sure I like them all that much aside from this kind. You can purchase Maleficent horns separately. I absolutely love the Women's Deluxe Maleficent Horns pictured above. They were originally prices closer to $100, though this year they were marked down to $40.00 and are currently on sale for $17.27. Some other budget options are these Elope Deluxe Maleficent Horns priced at under $25. Other accessories you can add onto a Maleficent costume include the staff, a black raven, and gloves.

Here is an excellent make-up tutorial for Maleficent. I've tracked down a similar green color contact that she uses in the tutorial here.
