Do you cook your turkey upside down?

November 20, 2007


The best cooking secret I’ve ever learned was to turn the bird breast down in the pan, so the white meat absorbs the flavorful juices. The turkey isn’t as pretty, but are you planning to eat it or look at it?

Another secret is to use a browning bag, available where the plastic wrap and tin foil are sold. With these two tips, you can’t fail to have a perfect bird every time–as long as you double the suggested cooking time in the bag instructions.

Happy Turkey Day!

Our family is so excited to welcome a sweet baby girl, our first grandchild. This is an extra special occasion because the Dow family has 6 boys and 1 girl–Needless to say, we just LOVE little girls! Darlene Rosalie Dow arrived on October 15, 2007 at 7 lbs 12 oz and 19 inches long. She is so calm and sweet natured–how could anyone resist her?
