Al often shares his culinary creations online

Fans can rest assured that Al's Thanksgiving recipes will be easy to follow as he has admitted in the past that he is not a fan of labor-intensive dishes.

"The recipes don't have a lot of ingredients, and they don't require fancy techniques, just basic cooking skills," he explained. "This keeps them fun and accessible. If it's a chore, then it's boring."

Of course, Al is no stranger to sharing his love of cooking. He has released two cookbooks and often hosts cooking segments on Today.
