Take advantage of good tips from experts on the Web who abound during the holidays

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — While Food Editor Pamela Silvestri stays up all night tonight on the Turning Tables blog answering your turkey and cooking questions, we want you to know there’s more help out there for the holidays.

(Note: Butterball doesn’t keep a 24-hour Thanksgiving Eve help-line like the Staten Island Advance does!)

But we’ll give you the talk-line number anyway. Butterball can be reached at 1-800-Butterball. Cooks can also text the word “Turkey” to 36888 from a mobile phone to have tips, reminders and alerts sent. They’re taking calls through Dec. 26.

And have you signed up for a cookie exchange? Are you getting freaked because you’re all thumbs when it comes to holiday baking?

Well, have no fear. There are dozens of companies willing to assist. (And, in the meantime, you can get coupons to buy their products!)

Check out Betty Crocker’s expansive site ( which features recipes from all their different entities (Gold Medal Flour, Bisquick, etc.) There’s a free holiday recipe brochure and help on the Land O’ Lakes Web site, or by calling 800-837-7702 through Dec. 30. The Web site has recipes and holiday menus, how-to videos, and special offers.

For the weight-conscious, recipes and budget tips can be found on, a Web site sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

After the big day

Parents who want to prepare foods the really old-fashioned way with their children as a fun holiday activity, may learn a thing or two at the Thanksgiving Kitchen Tours on Nov. 28-29 at Historic Richmond Town.
