So the bird. I was kinda sort of unsure about cooking the turkey. This was my first time roasting a turkey and I was nervous about timing, moistness, crispyness, of it being flavorful... I had a whole laundry list of doubt. So I googled and youtubed and scoured the internet for recipe ideas, tips and advice on how to cook the most delicious turkey. I ended up settling on a mix between Sandra Lee's Herb Roasted Turkey and Bobby Flay's Traditional Turkey Recipe and a spin of my own making. As a turkey roasting virgin, I was pretty pleased with the end result.
Here is the recipe for my Herb Smothered Roasted Turkey.
