Hello blog friends!
How many of you cook Thanksgiving dinner? This is my first year doing the meal, and Im REALLY excited! I love to cook, and I like to experiment with different ideas and recipes. Food Network is an obsession of mine. Im the kind of person who looks at recipes as a guideline, not a set of rules to follow.
After much research (lol) I decided I am going to follow Alton Brown's award winning turkey recipe. This method of cooking the bird has been a front runner year after year on the Food Network since 1999.Today I start to thaw out the bird and make the brine. Im also making my own homemade stuffing for the first time. Im going to document the whole process, because thats the kind of geek I am ;-)
What are your Thanksgiving traditions? Your favorite dishes? Best memories? Please share!
Another highlight of my day...Im going for a run later on :-) Jillian Michaels still has me hobbling around in pain, so wish me luck!
