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.
OMG! This Cranberry recipe is SOOOOO Good! We made it for Thanksgiving and will be making it for Christmas again. I suggest adding a little bit of grated orange peel to it. Even if your not a fan of Cranberries I think you will love this! My neice who HATES cranberries LOVED this recipe and came back for seconds! Get your Homemade Cranberry Sauce recipe.
Head over to get your Free Crock Pot Candy (“Mr. Bud Candy”). It would make a great gift in a tin for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Birthday. You can also put them out for guests for just for the family.
This is not a picture of the fudge I make I can’t locate them on my computer.
WARNING: Addictive, not my fault if you need your fudge all the time. lol Yes, I am a Chocoholic and I LOVE my chocolate! Not just any chocolate though most of the time I need my “make me feel better Fudge”! I do the occasional chocolate bars and other chocolates but I’m addicted to fudge. Shhhhh…..don’t give away my secret! lol Not that anyone who knows me doesn’t already know. 😉
Now I love all different flavors of fudge as well. So I like to mix it up on those days that I really want it so I don’t get bored. I’m not sure that could really happen but just in case. lol Now, I do it the frugal way so that it doesn’t get expensive to make. I pick everything up to make it when it’s on sale and have it on hand for those times that I want it.
You can make this even if you can’t cook!
Easy and Frugal 5 minute fudge
* 1 can evaporated milk
* Milk chocolate chips 12 oz
* Semisweet chocolate 6 oz
* 1 Ts of Vanilla
Take the chips and milk and put into a microwave bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 3 minutes and add a minute at a time till chips are almost melted stir in between as they sometimes still look like they aren’t melted but they are. Add in Vanilla and stir again. Put in a 9 X 13 pan that is greased with butter so they won’t stick. put into fridge to let set and cut in slices and enjoy! I know its a hard recipe isn’t it. lol
You can add nuts or other items at this time after the melting and adding of the vanilla.
Rocky Road Fudge-
after mixing and adding the vanilla you can add nuts and marshmellow to it then cool. HEAVEN!
Peanut Butter Fudge
* 2 cups creamy peanut butter
* 2 cups chocolate chips (1 12 oz bag)
* 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Put the chips and peanut butter into a bowl do NOT mix. Just place in microwave. Cook for about 2 minutes then stir, add in the milk and microwave for another minute. If not completely combined when you stir then add another minute on till it does. If it’s still lumpy add more time in on the microwave till its able to be stirred. Then place in fridge to set.
Place in 8 X 8 pan for this recipe.

I have to say that I just love baking and eating these cookies. Not to mention they are very frugal and are sure to please your families cookie cravings. I make these on a regular basis and the kids just love them and it’s a great way to get more protein into them.
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
Preheat the Oven to 350 degrees
Mix all the ingredients till the dough is smooth
Drop by the spoonful onto a greased baking pan and bake for 6-8 minutes. Be sure not to over bake them as they are the best when they are soft still.
Now I would suggest making a double batch for larger families because they will disappear quickly! I have to say that when I make them they don’t last long we usually have them as a movie treat and by the end of the movie we are wondering where the cookies went. lol

This is such a simple recipe to make but the delicious flavor will last and last when you can it to have it all winter long.
It’s always great to have canned foods on hand for the family for when you get sick. There are always easy goodies that you can still make with ease. The family will love the effort that you put into making it for them. Don’t forget the holidays are coming up and they would also be great in a gift basket for family and friends.

If your going to make them for gifts, just add some fabric on top of the jar lids and a little bow to make them adorable. You could also make your own labels for them as well to add some more flair to them and make them look so cute!
