With my favorite holiday of the year just around the corner, I thought it would be timely to post some Thanksgiving help for the culinarily challenged among you.
No holiday is as confounding as this one for the home cook who is expected to rise above the normal hellfires of daily cooking for two-to-four persons, and produce a stunning memorable meal of eight to 12 elements; all while being judged by their harshest critics whose sole happiness is at stake.
Included in the dozen recipes listed below is my perfect-turkey-every-time technique. Enjoy!
Where to find the bird:
D’Artagnan, Lobel’s, Callister Farms (Twin Cities), Herbert’s (for turducken)
