The holiday season provides wonderful opportunities for cooking with kids. When I was a child, I loved helping my mom in the kitchen. Turkey and stuffing were two of my favorite holiday recipes to help prepare.
I hope your family will enjoy these recipes as much as our family has throughout the years!

3. Rinse the turkey with cold water.
4. Place the turkey in a roasting pan, skin side up.
5. Season the turkey with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and rosemary. Its always better to start off with a little seasoning, and then gradually increase.

After the turkey is cooked, let stand for ten to fifteen minutes before removing the foil.
