"A New England style turkey with maple syrup. Try stuffing it with Cranberry, Sausage and Apple Stuffing. If you have fresh marjoram on hand, use 2 tablespoons rather than the 1/2 teaspoon dried. For an added zing of taste, two tablespoons of apple brandy can be added. If you don't have fresh thyme, substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme.

One of the secrets to a moist, delicious, and beautiful turkey is spreading butter under the skin. You can season the butter any way you want; the possibilities are endless." — by Chef John

"Seal in flavor and juices with this novel way of cooking roast beef. Wrapped in a salt batter, the beef's moisture and natural juices are sealed in keeping the meat extra tender and delicious. Make au jus separately since the roast's drippings will be too salty to use." — by Chuck Dagel
