Back after a hiatus from the blog due to my extensive travelling this year.  Just returned from Florida, my 4th trip there this year.  Have a wonderful turkey dinner menu for a small group.  I made this for my wife after Thanksgiving since she had to work the holiday.  Brining the turkey gives it a wonderful taste and keeps it moist.  I used an Orange-Tea-Bourbon brine then cooked it with a Paprika Butter;< .  Went simple with the sides of mashed potatoes and gravy.  For the bread I made Sweet Potato Biscuits;< .  Then to finish it off, instead of a standard pumpkin pie, went with the Pumpkin-Cheescake Swirl;< .

Cookies have always been a mainstay for our family. When I am at my parents house we always stop working at 10am to eat cookies.
