To all the home cooks that will be cheffing it up Thursday, share your menu and/recipes.
 
For all the folks that are going to be chowing down, list some of your favorites you will be enjoying on this wonderful day...

How many of you brine your turkeys? I attempted last year, but it is a lot of work, and I don't think I had the right ratio of kosher salt to water...I was afraid it would end up too salty.

I always use about 1-2 Tbsp Walkerswood on Turkey.  IMO, it kick the taste up a notch, with just a hint of the jerk seasoning taste.

You are welcome Jewels.  You can use the wet or dry, the object is not to use too much.   Maggi makes a fantastic dry jerk rub, the chicken and fish seasoning are awesome.  I cannot get them here in Ohio.   The last time we were in Canada, I was only able to find one pack of the jerk rub.

Femme do you want to bake something or bring something?
 
If you want to bake, I posted a really easy recipe for pumkin cheescake muffins. They're more like cupcakes with a cheesecake filling.
 
If you're going to buy, then the standards, holiday pies or red velvet cake.

Also, who has the best potato salad recipe? I like mine, however mine is always a little "runny" which is obviously a problem. LOL


Jewel, I have the recipe for Festival.  I just got home, I will post it later tonight.

Make sure that everything is chilled, then mix all ingredients for Potato Salad.  Cut potatoes in halves, do not dice. 
Okay thanks Claudie. I think that's my problem with the potato salad, I peel and dice prior to boiling.


Jewel, this is the recipe I use for Festival.   My Cousin owns a Jamaican restaurant in New York.  She is here at my home for Thanksgiving, and she  told me her recipe is a little different.  She is making Festival tomorrow.  I will be observing to see what is different, and I will send you her recipe.  Shh LOL.  She is a trained Chef and an excellent cook.

1 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar ( You can use more sugar if you desire, about 5-7 Tablespoons)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup water
vegetable oil (for frying)

Directions

1)  Sift the flour, baking powder, salt,  cornmeal and combine.
2)  Add the sugar and stir.
3) Add the vanilla to the water, and then add the mixture to the dry ingredients, binding to form a soft dough.
4)  Knead lightly.
5)  Leave covered for about 1/2 an hour. Divide the dough into eight portions.
6)  Flour hands.
7)  Knead lightly, then roll and pull each portion to form a 6 inch x 1 1/2 inch length, about 1/8 in thick. You can make shorter ones too.
8) Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.


Yes that is a problem, dicing potatoes for Potato Salad.  Make sure that everything is chilled, potatoes, boiled eggs, veggies.  I add a small amount of shredded carrot, chopped parsley leaves, Celery Seeds, and about three Tablespoons Sour Cream to my Potato Salad.  You are welcome, and thank you.

Let me say that I wouldn't actually do this...I'd at least leave my tupperware in the car until the host says to take food with me. I would, however, roll in with a heavy throwaway coat replete with at least 10 deep pockets

A Drink Recipe...




White Cranberry Cosmopolitan

White cranberry juice is sweeter than regular cranberry juice, which is why I use a lemon vodka. If you just have plain vodka, consider upping the lime.
1 shot of white cranberry juice
1 shot of vodka (absolut citron for preference)
½ shot of cointreau
Juice of half a lime (or less – I like mine lime-y)


Mix in a shaker and pour into a martini glass. Add frozen cranberries to keep the drink cold
