Notes about this book

  • DKennedy on December 27, 2014

    This book is a true treasure. Worth having in your collection if only for the turkey cooking times. I always pull out this book come thanksgiving time, and the three recipes I have tried worked perfectly. Every year I vow to try other recipes after Thxgiving but then my attention gets diverted.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Herb butter-rubbed turkey with giblet gravy

    • DKennedy on December 27, 2014

      Page 97. Thanksgiving 2014. Used William Sonoma's dry brine and then followed the instructions in this recipe to a tee. The turkey came out moist and incredibly flavorful. Added the pan drippings to the make ahead turkey gravy and served alongside. Based on the results, I will use this recipe every year.

  • Jack Daniel's whiskey and brown sugar crusted ham

    • DKennedy on December 27, 2014

      Page 107. Made this using a Trader Joe's ham. I did not make the dry brine as one was included in the TJ bag. Next time, I wouldn't use the TJ brine as I think it tainted the results. Having said that, it still came out very good.

  • Yankee turkey pot pie

    • DKennedy on December 13, 2020

      This is close to the recipe I cobbled together from several sources. The broth was 1 cup turkey stock, 1/4 c. port, 1/8 c. wine, 1/4 c. cream. 2 c. turkey meat, 2 c. veggies. The veggies are pan sautéed/roasted before adding to the pot.

  • Turkey enchiladas with creamy tomatillo sauce

    • DKennedy on April 26, 2013

      These enchiladas are easy to prepare and make a perfect choice for T-day leftovers. My kids loved these so much they have become my go to recipe for enchiladas. Out of turkey leftovers? Use rotisserie chicken or pork shoulder instead.
