Start Defrosting Your Turkey Tonight

This is a friendly reminder that if you have a large bird, oh say, 20 lbs or more, you will want to take it out of the freezer for Christmas on the night of the 22nd. Just put it in your roasting pan in the packaging it comes in, and place the roaster pan lid on top. Leave it somewhere cool, not overly warm, like a back hallway or something of the sort. It will slowly thaw through, and be ready for Christmas morning to start the...

How to Use This Liquor in Cooking: National Applejack Month

It’s National Applejack Month, and do you know what it is? Applejack is a made-in-America apple brandy. The brandy is distilled from apples & produces a result of light liquor. Of course, the longer the brandy is aged prior to bottling, the smoother it becomes. We pretty much adhere to the idea that brandies should be sipped on their own. Apple Jack is also nicely served drizzled over ice cream in a brandy snifter. Beautiful...

How to Roast Turkey Legs

One of my favorite things to enjoy when I lived down in Texas was turkey legs. They always had turkey legs at Trader’s Village in Grand Prairie just outside of Dallas, which is an enormous flea market, and they must have sold hundreds of these turkey legs on any given day on the weekends. These turkey legs were smokey and barbecued to perfection. We are not BBQ’ing tonight. Instead, we are roasting these gorgeous legs and...
