Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way
Best. Turkey. Ever. This is what I've done the past several years: I use the brine technique described in another recipe on this site called "Perfect Turkey" then I prepare the turkey according to the Homestyle/Michigander way. I use a meat injector to get some of the water/seasoning mixture into the bird before I pour the mixture all over it. I use a roasting pan with a lid and I leave it. I do not uncover it to baste or anything until time is up. I get rave reviews every time. The remaining turkey stock makes an excellent gravy with a very easy recipe on this site called "Savory Turkey Gravy".

Panna Cotta
This is so easy and delicious. Be sure to stir constantly to avoid burning the heavy cream, and also make sure the gelatin is thoroughly mixed in. I doubled the recipe and set it in a 9x12 glass dish. I also topped it with lightly sprinkled cocoa powder and mixed berries. Next time I will try a lighter version with half-and-half and less sugar. I may also try adding coconut extract for a twist.

Slow Cooker Pernil Pork
This turned out great. Being Puerto-Rican myself, I've done the traditional method of cooking the pernil in the oven. I loved the convenience of using the slow-cooker instead, and it turned out just as good. I always cut into the meat and shove some of the garlic/pepper paste into it. Also, I put balled up pieces of foil under the pernil to elevate it a bit. This prevents it from sticking to the bottom and sitting in the grease. It came out very moist and delicious. Once you place the lid on it, leave it! Every time it's opened moisture escapes. I opened it after 6 hours and it was done. Remember pork is fully cooked at an internal temp of 170 degrees.
