Why another cooking blog?

I decided to create this blog as a way for family and friends to see what I'm cooking and to share interesting food related tidbits I come across.
I'm frequently asked for recipes so I thought this would be a good place to start collecting the old, new, and funky recipes that I have.

Follow up to Turkey Brining


No seriously..... I will never cook another turkey without brining it first. I'm not fond of turkey. Generally speaking it's not my favorite food on Thanksgiving. If you look at my Thanksgiving plate I'm loaded up with all the side dishes and a very small portion of turkey. BUT this turkey was probably the best turkey I have eaten for Thanksgiving hands down. It was tender, juicy, and flavorful.... even the breasts and we all know how dry they can get.
If I can locate a decent picture of said turkey I will upload it but I'm pretty sure that I was so distracted with everything else going on that I neglected to take pictures.

So lesson learned here: Always Brine Your Turkey
