Thanks for the recipe pop! It will be a little too involved for me this year but I'll cook it soon. We're having a small casual TG this year. Enjoy!

It is a lot of work, your chained to the kitchen for a couple hours if you do it right. BUT, you'll never have a better turkey! I usually do it every other year. I did a 25lb. bird once for a large gathering. they wiped it out in 45 minutes and looked for more!

Yuck! No dogs (I did not watch the video btw)

"Noo..you Joking..?"

We have a nice Blackened Turkey and a kitchen full of tipsy cooks.
What side dishes are we going to have?

One thing I know that will be on my table is:
Kahlua Candied Yams

4 medium-sized yams
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar (I substitute with Splenda brown sugar)
1/4 cup Kahlua

Boil yams until tender but firm, let cool slightly and peel.
Cut yams in serving size pieces.
In heavy skillet, melt butter with sugar. Add Kahlua; cook 1 minute.
Add yams; turn until brown on all sides. Cover. Reduce heat, cook about 15 minutes.
Turn yams once more before serving.
Serves 4-6

*My kids like
marshmallows on their candied yams...I get extra "Peeps" at Easter time and have sugar free marshmallows.
