There are cards to write, presents to wrap, and friends stopping by. When you're swept up in the holiday whirl, getting a weeknight meal on the table can be a challenge. The solution: Cook the components of this hearty shepherd's pie up to five days in advance, and then assemble and bake -- in batches big and small -- whenever the joyous chaos allows.
Few things delight young cooks as much as kid-sized food. These zesty turkey sliders, served with baked potato wedges, are a perfect fit for little hands -- and little appetites. Give these burgers and "fries" a healthier, more kid-friendly spin by baking them in the oven (no spattering grease!). Just make sure a grown-up handles the pans.
