 How to Roast a Turkey Breast

If you have a large family or you normally host holiday dinners you have probably only cooked a whole turkey for your holiday dinners. But what if you don’t have a big family and making a whole turkey is just too much turkey for your size family. You can still enjoy turkey for holiday meals. Roasting a turkey breast is the perfect solution to holiday cooking for a small family.

Farberware Cookware review:

When it comes to cookware I’ve learned a few things over the years. The most important lesson I have learned is to buy a quality brand you know you can trust. Farberware is a brand I have bought over the years and have always been very happy with. The pots and frying pans are quality cookware that lasts forever. I have a set of saucepans and a huge stock pot that was a Christmas gift over ten years ago that I am still using.

This set of cookware is made of the same high quality I know I will still be using for many years from now.  I love that the medium size saucepan has pouring spouts on both sides of the pan.

For your chance to win a set of these long lasting high quality Farberware pots and pans enter below in the rafflecopter giveaway form.

    I would pick the non stick set in red. I never have color in my kitchen and this would be really pretty for the holidays!
