Thanksgiving is a week away, and vegan meals aside, most people will be roasting a turkey on that special day. (What? Ham? Unamerican.) But if you run into trouble with that gigantic bird, to whom can you turn? Butterball staffs a Turkey Talk-line every day from 8am to 6 or 8pm now through the day after Christmas -- a room full of home economists are waiting for your call in west suburban Downers Grove. And the fine people of America's Test Kitchen (editors of Cook's Illustrated) have created, full of thoroughly vetted recipes and advice. Good luck!
