1 Laura Plimpton - Senior Editor Social Media - I love the classic Turkey 101 recipe. Enshrouding the turkey with layers of cheesecloth and brushing it with melted butter and white wine works magic.
2 Laura Plimpton - Towards the end of roasting, removing the cheesecloth reveals a beautifully browned bird.
3 Laura Plimpton - Our dining table
4 Laura Plimpton - This year, I sewed festive napkins from an autumnal print fabric and a tablecloth from a length of burlap. I also made napkin rings using the selvedge of the burlap.
5 Laura Plimpton - The center of the table was decorated with moss-covered branches, Bradford pear leaves, and Christmas ferns.
6 Laura Plimpton - Great company and great food!

45 Karen Schuchardt - Piling on the apples - You’ll have to excuse my appearance in this picture. I woke up at 5:30am to start my baking! Katelynn, my niece from Minnesota, is reading Flat Stanley. As part of a school project, she sent me herself through the mail. I’m taking Flat Katelynn everywhere with me and capturing pictures with her throughout NYC during the holidays.
