The house smells so good while this turkey is cooking that my family can hardly wait to eat! The garlic, herbs and lemon are so simple, but they're all you really need for this turkey to shine. —Cathy Dobbins, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
Basted with a simple glaze, this wonderfully moist and tender turkey bakes to a lovely golden brown. Make it the centerpiece of your holiday table; guests will be glad you did.

Here’s the perfect centerpiece for your Thanksgiving feast. Champagne and oranges flavor this special bird. Our tester called it “one of my favorite turkey recipes ever!” —Tara Baier, Menomonie, Wisconsin
Meet the Cook: My "policy" in the kitchen is to try to fix something totally new at least once a week. This recipe came out beautifully on the first try! Ever since, in between experiments, I've made it often.
I usually fix Meaty Spanish Rice for family meals - but it's also great for doubling if unexpected company comes and the cupboards are all nearly bare!
My husband and I own a small engine repair service. Someday soon, we plan to retire to the farm 70 miles west of here that we also operate. We have three grown children and five grandchildren - and I spend as much time with those little ones as I can!

“My husband loves this pizza, and it’s the best way for him to get his fix while staying in his carb range. Putting cheese and seasonings in the crust lets you get by with less on the top.” Elena Falk - Versailles, Ohio
Before putting my turkey in the oven, I pour on a savory sauce that adds a pleasant citrus-soy flavor and helps hold the other seasonings I like to sprinkle on. It's easy to roast the giblets in the same pan and later add them to the gravy.
