Once upon a time, a queen surprised her family with a bountiful buffet that became the talk of the land.

Turkey legs of the tangiest sort were featured at the merry meal, as was a fire-breathing dragon dip. Captivating castle cakes created the grandest of finales, making the majestic meal fit for a king.

The queen created the banquet with the greatest of ease. Did she rely on a sorcerer's magic? Nay. She turned to the home economists in our Test Kitchens. With their help, the queen whipped up the fuss-free feast in no time, and the royal family lived happily ever after.
