turkey 101...

Happy November!!

You know what that means...

Thanksgiving (serious cooking) is just around the corner.

I've had a couple of requests to share tips for cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

I've done this several times (sometimes the outcome was fantastic...sometimes a flop). I will offer up the things that have worked for me in the past, and hopefully give a few fool-proof, easy suggestions.

First things first.

The bird.

I've tried cooking turkey MANY different ways (seriously, just about every technique Martha has suggested, I've tried). Surprisingly, this way was the easiest and best tasting. Who knew?? I'll never go back. If they ever stop making these bags, they had better be replaced with something truly amazing because these things ROCK!

Next up...stuffing the bird!

I am hosting thanksgiving dinner for 18 people this year! And I have never done this before. So I am really looking forward to your tips and recipes. :)

Hey I am a friend of Jennie Bartletts. I have used those bags my whole life and totally agree with you. They are the best! I love your site by the way!
