So this year I've been made to be in charge of most of the food for thanksgiving. I've never cooked a turkey before. What are the dos and don'ts and how do I keep it juicy. Also I love candied yams but never made them before. What's a good recipe? Need other ideas as well.
For desert I plan to make a pumpkin roll but not sure on anything else.

That is the recipe that my southern sister-inlaw uses and it is heavenly. You can make that instead of candied yams. We also have these at every Thanksgiving.
pepper and tomato salad
fennel green beans
cranberry relish (fresh cranberries with sugar and orange zest)
relish dish...all kinds of pickled things
I think the main thing is to think about your families favorite side dishes and try to incorporate them into your dinner.

Lots of ways to cook a turkey (I like them fried), but whatever you do Don't forget to take the bag out of the cavity!
I'm not a fan of turkey, but if I were serving it I would probably go buy the whole meal at a store that prepares it for you.
