I have to say that I LOVE Thanksgiving and having Turkey! So when it comes time to make my bird, I can’t wait to get it in the oven so that we can eat! The neighbors are always calling and asking how I am making my Turkey because they can smell it all the way in their homes! So I am going to share my recipe with you all today.
I use a Chardonnay wine that is the cheapest they have usually a $3 bottle.
a bit of onion and Garlic salt
8 tablespoons of butter
I wash my bird first, then put it in the Turkey pan. I poke the Turkey skin to make sure the wine can get in under the skin. Then I pour about a 1/4 of the bottle over the top of the turkey. Then I pour about 1/4 inside the turkey. I then add spices above to the top and inside the turkey. I place it in the oven at 250 for about 1 1/2 hours and then keep basting it every 30-40 minutes. After the first hour I turn the oven up to 265 and then keep it there till my bird is done. The dark meat and the white meat are equally juicy and everyone is ready to eat. I do it this way every year and it comes out perfect. I do have the little pop up button my my turkey to let me know just when he is done to perfection. ( Love the pop up button) It’s so easy to do but everyone thinks you slaved on your bird to make it taste soooooooooooo good! I figure what they don’t know won’t hurt them. lol The alcohol all cooks off while baking your bird but it has just a wonderful taste. Do NOT stuff your bird if your making it this way do your stuffing in a different pan.

I had a request for a 5 or less ingredient recipe for Banana Bread. All of my recipes have more then 5 ingredients but I have made a recipe just like this one and it does come out really good and it’s really easy to make.
Banana Bread Fast!
•4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
•1 (18.25 oz) cake mix (*I used a pineapple mix)
•1 cup ripe bananas, mashed
•3/4 cup nut or chocolate chips (I used white chocolate)
Combine all ingredients and mix for 2 minutes. Pour into greased 9 x 13 bread pan. Bake for 40 – 50 minutes, of until toothpick comes out clean.
Note: I had enough batter to also make 6 muffins AND, I used a pineapple cake mix, white chocolate chunks and a little coconut. I guess you could call it a tropical version of banana bread. Yum!
