Given that November is already upon us, that means Thanksgiving is almost here. And considering Thanksgiving is almost here, that means that Christmas is practically just around the corner! Are your kitchen skills ready to handle all the holiday baking? All of the roasting? All of the festive winter cocktail-making?
