The Best-Ever BBQ Turkey Recipe is EASY and DELICIOUS

If you are looking for a simple way to cook your turkey, you might just want to consider putting it on the BBQ. I actually prefer grilling my turkeys. They seem to cook quickly and to deliver a moist tasting bird.

We sometimes BBQ a turkey in the summer, often BBQ one at Thanksgiving and occasionally BBQ one at Christmas. However, we live in Canada so that last one is somewhat dependent on both the weather and my mood.

For simple instructions on how to BBQ a turkey, visit The Best-Ever BBQ Turkey Recipe.  It really is almost effortless to cook a turkey this way.

The Looneyspoons Collection (2011): A New Cookbook from Janet and Greta Podleski

The Looneyspoons Collection is the fourth cookbook by Janet and Greta Podleski.  It has been a while since the release of the last cookbook and it is exciting to see the 'ladies' back with another book.

The first two books, Looneyspoons and Crazy Plates, are out of print despite being much sought after, because the authors felt that some of the food information and recipes were out-of-date.

The new book, therefore, is a 'collection' of sorts. It includes some of the original recipes from the first three cookbooks and some new recipes. However, the recipes carried forward from the previous cookbooks have been updated to include current information and healthy eating choices.

I smiled when I read the recommendation on the cover from Alfreda Podleski. She said, "This is the best cookbook ever written." Alfreda, by the way, is Janet and Greta Podleski's mom.  She may be biased but, knowing how well received the first three Podleski sister cookbooks were, this one is probably one we will come to know and love, too.

I am looking forward to working my way through this book and to gifting it to two cookbook-loving family members this Christmas.  If you know someone who loved the first three books, you might wish to give them a copy of this new cookbook, too.

The Muppets' Swedish Chef: How To Cook A Turkey

The Swedish Chef certainly puts a new spin on things...and I could not believe my eyes when I saw how he was going to cook his Thanksgiving turkey...

Believe it or not, I was interrupted by my son midway through the video and I did not get to see the successful ending...

I hope this lesson from The Swedish Chef brought a smile to your face as it did mine when I was finally able to see the conclusion.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Amazon Black Friday Week Deals For The Kitchen

If you are planning on gifting someone in your life with a kitchen item this Christmas, you might want to check out Amazon's Black Friday specials.  However, don't wait until Black Friday to do so because Amazon is already running specials, each day from now until the end of the week.

I took a peek just now and see that they have some 'lightning' deals -- ones that last a very short time -- as well as other sales that last longer than that, which include items like professional knives, Kitchenaid mixers and Amana kitchen appliances.

Prices seem to be very good and never forget the power of Amazon's FREE shipping offer, which saves you from going to the store, parking, locating what you want (if it is available) and standing in line.

You can check out Amazon's current Black Friday kitchenwares sale by clicking right here.

Happy Shopping!

Safety In The Kitchen With Kermit The Frog and the Swedish Chef

Kermit The Frog is everywhere these days. He is busy travelling the globe (or so it would seem) promoting the new 2011 Muppet movie, The Muppets.

Kermit co-stars in this short video with the Swedish Chef. Kermit shares a few safety tips and the Swedish Chef , naturally demonstrates what NOT to do, LOL.

The tips, by the way, are serious and basic ones.

Be safe
in the kitchen.

A Thanksgiving Movie List For You

If you are looking for a Thanksgiving movie, I am thrilled to be able to tell you that I have discovered a few. From An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving to Pieces of April and What's Cooking, there is a holiday themed movie available for you.

I enjoyed Pieces of April, although it was a gritty, dark movie.

I also enjoyed What's Cooking, which followed the antics of four American families as they prepare for their very individual Thanksgiving dinners.

The Best-Ever Glazed Baked Ham Recipe

It's been a little while since we've had the best-ever glazed baked ham. Not because we could not eat it every day but rather because we consider ham to be a 'treat' type of food. After all, ham is not particularly lean.

So we save our baked hams for special occasions like New Years Day and Easter.  I notice now that my children are grown, I receive requests for baked ham on birthdays and the other occasion that we love to serve a baked ham is in the summertime, cooked in advance with a side of potato salad. Ordinarily, we eat our baked ham with a scalloped potato and we use the ham to wipe up every morsel of the sauce from the potatoes.

It is hard to believe that Halloween is gone and it is now time to turn our thoughts to Christmas but it is. I will be watching the local grocery store flyers for a sale on smoked pork picnic bone shoulder ham and then I will tuck it away and anticipate the arrival of New Year's Day...
