Hi Paula, I love to cook and entered many cooking contests but only won a few. My turkey method is so easy and great tasting. I baste the turkey with melted butter and Kalua and then place in a brown bag, seal tight and never never peek. End results, perfect brown turkey without opening the oven or basting ever. Just let it go. Easter is another thing. I'm Italian, so I make this wonderful Italian braided colorful egg bread. Yummy. Love your show and your great laugh. Peace

This pie is awesome. I was a little leary about the chili powder but it works. This is probably the best strawberry pie filling I have ever made.
