Savory Recipes for Your Thanksgiving Table

Main Course & Side Dishes

Rosemary Lemon Roasted Turkey

The rosemary and lemon offer both herby and citrusy hints that enhance this main dish. The list of ingredients is simple and prep time is minimal. Roasting time takes a few hours and you should stay close by, as the recipe calls for a temperature change and some periodic basting.

5 Toyota Models That Earned 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Awards

We use our vehicles for everything, from daily work commutes to weekend runs for ice cream. We camp out of them. We drive our kids to soccer practice with them. We let our dogs slobber outside our vehicle’s windows when flooring it up I-98. We love and take care of our cars, and in return, we expect them to care about us. And there’s no better vehicle to rely on than a Toyota.

That’s because the engineers at Toyota know how important safety is to every single driver—and these five 2017 Toyota models prove it. All of the below cars and SUVs have not only passed the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) battery of tests, but they’ve also earned places atop the organization’s Top Safety Pick+ list.

The Top 3 Tire Care Tips Every Driver Should Know

New and longtime car owners alike aren’t always confident that they know how to maintain their vehicle. Thankfully, a lot of the trick to conscientious maintenance is as easy as coming up with a simple, effective plan to minimize wear—and visiting your local auto service center at regular intervals. Today we’ll focus on 3 tire care tips that will help keep you and your family safe while ensuring fewer visits to the tire store.

Check your tire pressure at least once a month.

Check your tire pressure at least once a month.

If you don’t know it already, check your vehicle owner’s manual or the tire placard on your vehicle’s door edge to find the target pressure. By maintaining this as consistently as you can, you’ll increase your overall gas mileage, as well as the lifespan of your tires.

Get your tires rotated professionally and on schedule. 

Get your tires rotated professionally and on schedule.

Another quick check with your owner’s manual will point you in the right direction here, which is usually around every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. Professional tire rotation is key because each tire takes on different pressures during normal usage; for example, you lose pressure from braking and accumulate extra tire wear from turning. A tire rotation balances those differences, preventing the need to replace one tire due to focused wear.

Check your tread.

Check your tread.

A healthy tire tread is crucial for keeping you and your passengers safe, especially in tough road conditions. You might be surprised by how simple the test is. First, place a quarter into a tread groove with Washington’s head facing down. If there is space between the tread and Washington’s perfect hairdo, you should seek professional advice and expect to buy new tires. And if you’ve heard about the classic penny test, stick to keeping a quarter in your glove box; the Lincoln version isn’t relevant to modern tires (or times).

By following these simple tips alongside soliciting advice from automotive specialists, you’ll be driving safer, avoiding tire emergencies, and spending less overall. Whew.
