My mother-in-law is Italian. She's a great cook. This year, however, I volunteered to cook the turkey at Thanksgiving at her house in Latrobe, PA. I've never cooked a turkey, let alone taken over Lydia's kitchen during a holiday to cook the main dish. I have, however, purchased sliced turkey for sandwiches at the supermarket deli counter. But I don't think that's going to cut it.
You probably don't know me, so why would you help? I'm Doug Donovan, the Patch regional editor that has overseen Bel Air Patch and the other Harford County Patch sites since they launched more than a year ago. I'm helping out in Bel Air while Kirsten finishes her company training this week.
You can enter your tips and/or recipes into the comment section. For starters I'll be contemplating these recipes from a writer in a rival Patch site.
