Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and if you’re feeling a bit behind in your preparations, you’re not alone. I recently had to do a quick Google search to double-check the date for this year’s Thanksgiving, and it’s safe to say that many of us are in the same boat. As the TSA anticipates record numbers of travelers at airports, it’s clear that this year’s Thanksgiving will be a big one for many Americans. But amid the holiday hustle and bustle, there’s some good news for those planning to host a traditional turkey feast at home – the cost of the holiday centerpiece, the turkey, has seen a significant drop in prices this year, making home-cooked celebrations more budget-friendly.
Are you in charge of cooking the turkey this Thanksgiving? If so, you HAVE to try this family recipe for a super delicious, juicy, moist turkey. The secret ingredient is Dry Brine. You need to plan ahead three days, so keep this in mind when prepping. Dry brining involves applying salt to the food and allowing it to rest before cooking, resulting in succulent, flavorful meat and a crowd-pleasing crispy skin.
“Thanksgiving Day is a good day to recommit our energies to giving thanks and just giving,” once said Amy Grant. With the holiday just a week away, preparations are in full swing, and one dish that takes center stage on the Thanksgiving Day dinner table is stuffing. From cornbread to seasoned, mushroom to andouille sausage, southwest style to cajun, the options seem endless. Today, I’m excited to share my fail-proof, mouthwatering Cranberry Stuffing recipe, a true family favorite that embodies the spirit of autumn with its vibrant colors and rich flavors. It’s time to indulge in the goodness of Thanksgiving!
