Today I am the most popular non porn gal on the Internet!

Unless your porn is food, then I am a porn star!


So, why am I so popular today, tomorrow and Thursday morning? Because I am the butcher queen!

And why are you guys butchering your turkeys the morning of? Do it the day before, so that you can give it time to rest.

My turkey cooking recipe is as follows.

Soak your raw turkey in apple juice or cider, 24-48 hours in advance. Be sure to keep the turkey chilled with ice.

For a 40 lbs bird. Merely cut time In half for those of you with the more traditional 20 lbs bird.

Cook the bird breast down at 400 degrees for one hour. Reduce heat to 250 f for 4 hours. Remove the bird from the oven, flip it over and stuff. ( Here is my favorite stuffing)


Continue to bake at the slow temp for an addition 4 hours, the increase oven temp to 400F for 1hour.

I know, that is a long time! But well worth it. The turkey comes out incredibly moist, perfect coloring and tasty.

To my Vegan Friends, you can find some ideas from this article I wrote a few years ago.



Here are some more tradition recipes >>>





Husband forces me to make marshmallow topped "yams". I know it is super popular, but I love sweet potatoes. There is so much you can do with them. I have collected several of my favorite sweet potato casserole recipes here.


Devolved eggs are also a mainstay at most family gatherings. If you are a nonconformist, I have some great egg ideas here, it is also my most popular food article.

Welcome garden.

Judy, husband's family does lasagna on Christmas. Nothing wrong with that.

Oh, how I wish we had a turkey! We only have chickens right now. Hopefully in a couple of years I can put this advice to use!
