Turkey 'n Taters

With just days until Christmas I figured I would share a couple more recipes we tried out this year for Thanksgiving that would also work beautifully on the Christmas dinner table.

I am simply going to direct you to each of the sites for the recipes (straight there, you won't have to search, don't worry) as we pretty much followed them as written.

Alton Brown's Brined Turkey

No more dried out bland turkey. This one is super juicy and delicious. There's a reason it's the #1 recipe on Food Network.

Pioneer Woman's Creamy Mashed Potatoes

For years we have done the old standby of potatoes mashed with milk and butter, but after seeing The Pioneer Woman dump cream cheese into her mashed potatoes on a Throwdown with Bobby Flay I was sold. These smooth, creamy, fluffy potatoes are not for the faint of heart -- or those trying to stick to a diet. But then, that's not what the holidays are all about, are they?


  1. Bring on the taters! I am all about the taters. I may have to use that mashed potato recipe for Christmas dinner on Saturday. Looks delish.

    By the way, did you get my e-mail? I've been told by a few my messages are hitting their spam folder so I just wanted to be sure you got it. =)

  2. I've made that turkey! And yes, it's a darn good one. Oh my, those potatoes are looking divine!!

  3. Mmmm potatoes....My best friend got me hooked on using the chive and onion cream cheese in my mashies. So yummy!!! Love that extra creaminess.

  4. The turkey and mashed potatoes look AMAZING! There's nothing like mashed potatoes and turkey, YUM! I've heard that Alton Brown's turkey is amazing and I have yet to try it. And I just LOVE mashed potatoes with cream cheese, those are my kind of potatoes! :)

  5. A turkey by the wonderful Alton and mashed potatoes by none other than the beautiful Ree? You KNOW this is all good! Sounds like the perfect Christmas meal!
