For Maine native John O'Hurley, Thanksgiving would not be the same without the company of dozens of dogs, their handlers and upwards of 25 million people welcoming them into their homes.

Best known for his portrayal of 'Seinfeld's' J. Peterman, a fictionalized version of the real life fashion and accessory catalog magnate, O'Hurley will preside over his 11th consecutive 'National Dog Show' telecast on Thanksgiving day beginning at 12 noon on NBC.

Days of Turkey Bowls past

I've always been a fan of Thanksgiving, perhaps even secretly thinking of it as my favorite, though putting it ahead of Christmas might be considered blasphemous in a country where stores put wreaths up in late September. Part of my love of the day has always been the relatively low-stress nature of this particular celebration. No lists of presents to buy, no wrapping, no crowded stores - and best of all, no Thanksgiving music.

Yanked candied 'yams'

Well, I don't use yams here and there ain't no candy, but here is my version of this holiday classic. I have married salty with sweet again, forcing candied yams to "grow up" a bit.

Believe it or not, sweet potatoes are as American as apple pie. Native Americans were growing sweet potatoes when Columbus came in 1492, and by the 16th century sweet potatoes were being cultivated in the southern states, where they became a staple in the traditional cuisine.

LEVANT - Turkey day may be a couple months away, but that's not stopping a Levant business from celebrating the famous Thanksgiving bird a little early. The great gobbler was the inspiration for this year's corn maze design at Treworgy's family orchards on Union Street, and it's attracting quite a flock of visitors.

"We come up with the theme around the dining room table," explained Robin Pellerin, retail manager at Treworgy's. "It's my parents that started the farm and we run it as a whole family. We sit around the table and come up with a theme usually at the end of the season. It's my uncle that did the maze design."
