    My stuffing was very good! I just used a couple loaves of white bread (torn into pieces). I browned a thing of sage sausage and let chopped onion and celery simmer in butter and chicken broth until tender then I combine everything and added more chicken broth until it was the desired texture. Then I baked it in a casserole dish for a half an hour.

    Twice baked potato casserole

    10 large russet baking potatoes (about 7 pounds total)
    8 tablespoons (1 stick) plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
    1 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
    3/4 pound bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
    1/2 pound sharp white Cheddar, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    3/4 pound mild Cheddar, grated (3 cups)
    1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
    3 eggs, lightly beaten
    Directions
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    Scrub the potatoes well and rinse under cool running water. Pat dry with paper towels and prick the potatoes in several places with a fork. Place the potatoes in the oven and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until tender. Remove from the oven and set aside on a wire rack until cool enough to handle.

    When the potatoes have cooled, cut each potato in half and, using a spoon or a melon baller, scoop the flesh out of the skins, leaving as little flesh as possible. Place the potato flesh in a large bowl and add 1 stick of the butter, the sour cream, heavy cream, salt, and pepper and mash until chunky-smooth. Add the bacon, cubed white Cheddar, half of the grated Cheddar, the green onions, and eggs and mix thoroughly.

    Butter a 9 by 13-inch casserole with the remaining tablespoon of butter and reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.

    Place the seasoned potato mixture in the prepared casserole and top with the remaining grated Cheddar. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until bubbly around the edges and heated through and the cheese on top is melted and lightly golden. Serve hot.

    I have cooked A LOT of turkeys throughout the years. I’m talking 20+ and for some reason, this one looked like it could have come from a magazine. I brined it as in the last 5 years or so with no change to the recipe, used the same roaster from the 40’s, same stuffing etc.
    What I did do was not let anyone talk me out of keeping the lid on during the last hour of cooking. Instead of a pale, but still delicious bird, we had a crispy skinned, moist and super flavorful bird. I wanted to take a picture but I was busy making gravy, pulling the rest of the hot stuff from the oven/microwave, pouring wine, getting more serving spoons…

    Pumpkin Roll

    This moist rolled-cake has a rich cream cheese filling. Serve it cold.

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup white sugar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    1 cup pumpkin puree
    3 eggs
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup confectioners’ sugar

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch jelly roll pan or cookie sheet.
    In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in pumpkin puree, eggs, and lemon juice. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Spread the mixture evenly.
    Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 15 minutes.
    Lay a damp linen towel on the counter, sprinkle it with confectioner’s sugar, and turn the cake onto the towel. Carefully roll the towel up (lengthwise) with the cake in it. Place the cake-in-towel on a cooling rack and let it cool for 20 minutes.
