"Give your Thanksgiving dinner a twist this year. You will be pleasantly surprised at the indescribable flavor of this turkey. Well, WOW comes to mind. I got the general recipe from a German friend of mine with an added twist of my own. I have had so many raves about my turkey that everyone now comes to my house on Thanksgiving. Definitely a crowd pleaser, there has never been left over turkey at my house. Thanks Evelyn :)" — by Sherry

"Over the years, I've developed a first-rate, do-ahead menu. Here's how: I roast two small turkeys instead of one big one. We all like the idea of someone carving the turkey at the table, but here's the reality: Most people don't know how. You're gonna get turkey juices all over that nice white tablecloth, while the side dishes turn tepid. So carve one in the kitchen and use the second one for display. The second turkey is strictly for show, seconds and leftovers." — by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
