Christmas Kickoff and Holiday Cooking Guide Ty Kernea | Herald-Citizen Holiday Cooking Your recipes, along with a couple thrown in from other sources, for great holiday eating.

Moist, warm turkey and ham. Creamy mashed potatoes, seasoned green beans and buttery rolls. Yummy pecan pie and every other kind of dessert you can imagine. All of it tomorrow! So, if you haven’t already, it’s time to make a mad dash to the grocery store to gather all those last-minute ingredients you need for the big meal, whether that be a small, intimate setting at home with immediate family or a grand affair at Grandma’s where the whole lot of aunts, Turkey Recipes Peel it and put it in the oven for 13 seconds.
