The countdown has begun to Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving, comfort food, family and of course football, but this day can sometimes be overwhelming. Trust me I’ve been there. Thanksgiving mishaps haunt us all.
No one wants to be the person who ruins the gravy or bakes the bird to a crisp. The first time I hosted Thanksgiving for my family the turkey was so dry no amount of gravy could save it, what a mess!
But year after year I became more confident in the kitchen, picked up a few tricks along the way and relaxed. I focused on what was really important; spending time with family, giving thanks and looking forward to the New Year. I am happy to report my bird gets tastier each year. I have also tried my hand at experimenting with new flavor combinations and brining to add a punch of flavor to my Thanksgiving bird.
