7@Four: Cooking With Tech

It's that time of year when everyone is getting ready for the holidays -- especially Thanksgiving which is just next week!

On 7@Four we had a tech expert with us to show us some tricks and tips to manage your holiday preparations.

Toni Ballard from Verizon Wireless also brought along some gadgets.

Ballard says that the Google Assistant on your Pixel 2 can help with a variety of cooking tasks.

With a simple "OK, Google" voice command to your Google Home Mini, you can find awesome recipes, get cooking instructions, set a timer, play holiday music to get you in the mood or even learn the history of the Thanksgiving turkey and the Christmas ham.

If you find menu planning challenging, you'll want to try Food Planner. Create your own recipes or import the ones you find from any website.

Input an inventory of the ingredients you have on hand and Food Planner will create a grocery list of items still needed.

And no holiday gathering is complete without capturing the moments.

Pixel 2 features the highest rated smartphone camera and with unlimited photo and video storing for Pixel 2 users; you never have to worry about running out of space.
