Ultimate Turkey Brine

Rating: 5 stars 24
Simple overnight brine that will make any turkey moist and tasty. You can use this recipe for turkeys in the 15-20 lb. range. Brining works best for fresh turkeys, you should definitely not brine any turkey that is already injected with a 'solution'.

Ultimate Sausage, Apple, and Pecan Dressing

Great dressing recipe that can easily be varied by substituting various fruits and nuts, or even using bacon instead of sausage. This can also be made the day ahead.

Ultimate Cranberry Salad

This Thanksgiving dish is great two ways, as a condiment for roast turkey and as a stand alone dish (especially topped with whipped cream!).

Ultimate Mashed Potatos

Mashed potatos with a little something special for those special occasions. I have successfully doubled and tripled this recipe for holiday meals.

Ultimate Green Beans

Tired of green bean casserole? Try this fresh green bean dish that is worthy of the holidays! When I make this at Thanksgiving I double or triple it depending on the number or people coming.
