Holiday Cooking Hotlines

Everybody loves the holidays: festive decorations, time with family and friends, feelings of good cheer. It's also a time of no small amount of stress as well: travel in bad weather, too many people in the house, and then there's the cooking. While we all enjoy a great holiday feast, it's not so easy to put it on the table. It would be nice if we could get some extra help.

As it turns out, a lot of the folks who sell you the goodies that you incorporate into your cooking want to do just that. Many of them have telephone help lines, or websites that can give you a hand.
