 First things first, DeAnne is hosting a Holiday recipe linky! Who doesn't need new ideas when getting ready for Thanksgiving??

In our family, I'm usually in charge of the turkey- my in laws aren't big cookers (is that right?!) and so I was designated official turkey baker 4 years ago! Here's a picture of my very first turkey- it turned out great, right?! I was SO nervous, and my turkey that I had put in the fridge for 4 days before Thanksgiving had not defrosted completely!! I had to finish thawing it the morning of...and we didn't end up eating until around 8 but it was worth the wait!
I got the recipe from the 2003 November issue of Bon Apetit. I looked through a billion magazines my mom had and the internet and cook books for weeks before I decided on one! It turned out great, so I've kept the recipe the same since!

P.S. I've been working on some Christmas/ winter themed stations and have been using a LOT of my friend Tessa's digital papers. Have you seen them?! She is new to creating digital products and they are *fabulous*!
