    Anything fancy about the bourbon cranberry sauce, or is it simply adding some bourbon to the sauce and a stroke of genious I never thought of?

    I don't know anything fancy about it other than I only use good bourbon. Otherwise, it's regular cranberry sauce with bourbon straight up. There are some good quicky recipes online. Here's one

    Edit-

    I think the bourbon should be reduced down a bit. This one does that

    I used hibiscus tea leaves to make simple syrup yesterday and then today turned that into hibiscus-infused sugared cranberries:

    For my families night before thanksgiving "healthy" meal my future sister and law and I made a Kale salad and lentil soup. My first time making/having Kale salad but it was very good. I'm sure I'm going to make it again at some point.

    I never pre-cook pie filling. I didn't even know that was a thing. And jesus don't fill it now and then leave it uncooked overnight.

    usually pie filling is best put in a bit warm i thought. i heat it up before pouring into the crust.

    Sweet or savory?

    On the sweet side i do a pretty mean yam casserole with pecans. For savory I like to slow roast them with some olive oil, cayenne, rosemary, sea salt, and pepper.

    I think theres exceptions to pre cooking a filling, but for apple pie, its very much not the one to do it for.

    That looks great, chairmenmeow!

    My attempts all came through fine. The real winner for me on the night was my brined turkey. I'm a major bullshiater so I know when I'm being BS'd with compliments. These were genuine and I was happy to hear it- that damned thing was a lotta work! Brining is really the way to go for turkey. My third time doing it and finally have it dialed in.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone else! Off to guzzle wine.

    Mystery solved.

    Keller's recipe calls for cooking the chicken at a very high temp. 450 or 475. and he has a very small bird. 2 1/2 to 3 lbs. If you are cooking a bigger chicken (like the 4 1/21 lber I made yesterday) you don't want to cook at that high heat the whole time or else you'll dry it out before it's done. so i started mine at 450 but then brought it down to 375. (also had to share the oven with another dish that was supposed to be at 350, so it was compromises all around). Anyway I think my bird could have used some fat on the outside to brown a little better.

    Coming into the last turn, it's catch phrase and name dropping leading by 2 furlongs.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I just use the 'drop from one eggshell half to the other' method, works just fine.

    In semi-related news, have some salted caramel apple hand pies in the oven right now for a work party tomorrow. I am so tired. As soon as they're done I'm hitting the Arbor Mist hard.

    the water bottle thing was perfect, thank you. i've never had luck with egg shells either, there's always little pieces.

    i'm so exhausted. just finished a batch of cookies, and made a special surprise for a certain birthday clares for tomorrow (rock band / holiday party). let's see if a bath will give me the energy to start the cheese pastries. thank god i get off work early tomorrow.

    I'm getting pretty excited about Christmas dinner. Just wondering if I can pull this off, since I'm the sole cook in my family when it comes to holidays. So far on my list of things to make is:
    roasted rack of lamb
    drunken chicken
    mashed potatoes
    sweet potatoes
    sausage apple stuffing
    green bean casserole
    corn on the cob
    cranberry sauce
    gravy

    Dessert is going to be stuffed baked apples with a graham cracker filling a la mode. I'll also have homemade cookies.

    I haven't decided on what to make for appetizers. I might just recycle the idea of deviled eggs and stuffed mushrooms, since they're easy to make. Does anybody have any quick-to-make appetizer suggestions? I do want to stay away from anything with cheese in it because my mom doesn't like cheese. Crazy, right?

    i don't drink egg nog, but am making some for my party. any tips? it doesn't seem too difficult from what i've googled, but i hate making things i don't like because i can't taste test.

    Robin, you can make wontons or hand pies with pretty much any filling you want and those make good appetizers.

    You can also make individual savory tarte tatins in a muffin tin, although those generally work a li'l better if you have some kind of cheese to bind the topping to the dough or puff pastry.

    You're welcome, Ivy! I think there is a similar youtube earlier in this thread or somewhere else on the board, and I remembered it. I use the egg shell to egg shell method myself.

    Bacon-wrapped shrimp (skewered with a toothpick) with a simple cocktail dipping sauce has always served me well as an appetizer. Really not hard to do these at all.

    Hummus with olive oil pit in the center surrounded with pita chips is another easy winner.
