3 WAYS TO MAKE THANKSGIVING TURKEY

Are you ready to make THE BEST Thanksgiving Turkey this holiday season? Trust me, these 3 recipes will elevate your turkey day to the next level!


Thanksgiving is one of my FAVORITE holidays, and I like to take the time to show my family love by cooking my soul food meals. I also use this time to reflect on what I am most Thankful for such as the blessing of life, optimal health, and the relationship that I've cultivated with my family and friendship.



THANKSGIVING TURKEY RECIPE


When it comes to turkey are your more of the TRADITIONAL type, prefer EVERYTHING FRIED, or like to switch it up and add some extra spice for a JERK FLAVOR?


I always like to cook for the different taste preferences that my children and my sisters have so I like to do a little bit of EVERYTHING fried, jerk, bbq, and traditional.


Now that the COUNTDOWN to Thanksgiving has begun I decided to start a series where I share weekly recipes here on my blog and on my youtube channel if you're more of a visual person.
