  2. I use the cooking bags, follow the instructions for cooking per pound and it always comes out perfect. Never a a dry or undercooked bird in 25 years. Thank God for the cooking bags!!!!

    Loving Mary. Cheers

    Happy Thanksgiving my American brothers and sisters!

    This year, I hope Uncle Marcus makes a BIIIIG announcement at the Bachmann family dinner!

  4. Thank god I'm not the only one that thinks turkey tastes terrible. Just stop it with the turkey, it doesn't taste good. I don't care that it is traditional blah blah blah, it sucks. Do what I did and institute thanksgiving ham, everyone will be happier.

  5. So only PC people get to watch? i've installed the latest flast in Chrome and Firefox and still...just a photo and no working link to any video at all. Just circling around to this page over and over or to a still photograph.

  6. @Dale: YES! Cooking bags rock!

    And it's about the easiest thing to clean in the world, no more late night scrubbing on the turkey roaster.

    Plus: skip stuffing altogether (much safer) and put apples, carrots, onion and cranberries in that sucker. Comes out perfect. Oh, and don't eat those apples later. :-) HINT: Once it's done, let it sit for about 30 minutes without opening that bag. Soooo moist.

  7. Indeed, lots of Canadians. I'm Canadian too.

  8. Resting the turkey for 30 minutes after it comes out of the oven before carving is the key. The juices reabsorb and it's moist and delicious!

  10. I've never seen this woman, but I must admit I found her fascinating and couldn't stop watching! She's like a stoner/hippy version of Julia Child.

  11. Not sure that I would trust her to teach me anything besides how to roll a joint. She's absolutely wrong about brining---it's a simple, failsafe way to make turkey delicious.

    And if I'm going to cook for guests, I would prefer that the food be good. I agree that you shouldn't be an annoying stress case about it, but it's not rocket science either.

  13. Cook a capon instead of turkey. Big, delicious, and poultry. It will still look like a picture, but taste tons better.
