As the big day quickly approaches, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.  Don’t fret.  These five apps include everything you need — from recipes to menus to grocery lists — for you to whip up a Thanksgiving meal like a pro. All are available for Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

CHOW’s Thanksgiving Dinner Coach,  Free.  This virtual dinner coach is your key to a stress-free holiday.  A calendar breaks down what you have to do each day and the app generates a grocery list based on the recipes you choose.  It even tells you how long it will take you to prep on each day.  At no cost, this app is a must-have for anyone hosting a feast.

Butterball Cookbook Plus, $4.99.  Tips for the turkey and how-to videos make a dry bird a thing of the past.  Free recipes each month make this an app you can use long after the holiday’s over.  The company also has a hotline, or you can tweet them emergency turkey questions.

Appetites’ Easy as Pie featuring Evan Kleinman, $2.99.  On Thanksgiving, pie is the star of the dessert table.  This app includes 20 different recipes along with step-by-step videos.  We can’t wait to try the Chai Spice Pumpkin and the Butterscotch Toffee pies.

KitchenPad Timer, $1.99. This visual kitchen timer lets you set up to 9 timers at once.  Set separate timers for turkey, stuffing or gravy so you can forget about them and worry about other things.

Leftovers, $0.99.  Once the meal is finished, you might feel as if you have enough food left for an army.  With this Leftovers 4 Day Throw Away app, it’s easy to know what you should toss or save.
