*Guest Post* Roasting a Turkey 101

This year, we are pleased to share this post with all the Nutty Food Lover readers our Go-To post for Roasting a Turkey. Over the course of years, both Seth and us (Helga and Kitty) started our own food blogs – based in Guatemala, and often shared tips and recipes on our Twitter accounts or Facebook pages.

The Foodies’ Kitchen is a blog that not only helps us to broaden our recipe book but also share all the recipes (along with some of our own!) with all the foodies from around the world. We believe that you do not need expensive or sophisticated ingredients to create a great dish, so what you will find in our blog are recipes that we have tested in our kitchens which we have collected from food magazines, TV shows, food websites, cookbooks, and even our own original concoctions.

We have recipes that range from quick and easy for when you have 30 minutes (and sometimes less) to get food on the table, to fantastic meals for that special dinner, healthy and not so healthy… but delicious recipes.

We hope that you enjoy this post which includes general guidelines for roasting a turkey which we got from Williams-Sonoma and Epicurious’ websites. We’ve added some of our own comments as well.
Happy Thanksgiving!

So after  a beautiful and meditative walk with my wife in a Lancaster park yesterday, I decided to take some great food pictures. What better recipe to start with than my blackened cod (though today we substituted for another white fish).
