Melissa Gerstein, Co-Founder of TheMoms.com, Shares Tips on Navigating Thanksgiving With the Help of Keurig

As the most food and drink centric holiday, hosting Thanksgiving takes a lot of prep. Between cooking turkey, working on side dishes, entertaining guests, and maybe even catching some football, it can seem like there a million things to do. Recently, Melissa Gerstein, Co-Founder of TheMoms.com, teamed with Keurig and YourUpdateTV to share her secrets on hosting Thanksgiving.

Start Early

Melissa likes to start with decorations. The last thing she wants is to be running around the house putting up decorations as guests are about to arrive. Get those Thanksgiving wreaths up early!

Another tip? Clear out the fridge. There is nothing worse than starting to prepare a huge dinner and realizing there is zero space in the fridge.

Day of Preparation

For Melissa, Thanksgiving doesn’t really begin until she’s had her first cup of coffee. While juggling a million things, there is just no time to run out for a cup, so on days like this, Keurig can be a life-saver.

Before Melissa gets started, she uses the Keurig K-Latte Single Serve Coffee and Latte Maker to brew a fresh cup of coffee. From there, it’s off to the races, starting with the dishes that will take the longest to make and strategize which dishes can be baked together at the same temperature. Multiple timers can help as well!

Post-Turkey Tips!

Thanksgiving isn’t complete without dessert and coffee. Melissa likes to set her guests up at a dessert and coffee station with everything they need – from forks and plates to the K-Latte Coffeehouse brewer. Guests can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee or creamy latte in minutes. And all with one brewer!

A lot of specialty coffeemakers can be complicated, time-consuming and messy, but the Keurig K-Latte Coffeehouse Brewer is so simple to use. Guests can use any single-serve coffee pod, including any K-Cup pod to brew both coffees or lattes personalized to their tastes.

And we all know how families are – everyone likes their coffee a different way. This relative takes theirs black. This one wants a flavored coffee. This one wants a creamy latte and it’s super easy to make with the Keurig K-Latte Coffeehouse Brewer. Just BREW a coffee shot using any K-Cup pod, FROTH your choice of fresh milk, including skim, soy and almond and ENJOY your delicious, creamy latte
