    Danielle K.'s Note:

    I was going through the recipes on here and I found two that I liked. So I combined them and figured I’ve give it a try for Thanksgiving this year. The two recipes that I combined are Honey Brined Herb Roasted Turkey Honey Brined Herb Roasted Turkey by Mirj and Brined and Roasted Whole Turkey Brined and Roasted Whole Turkey by Joanie Grow.
