We had turkey ... oh, did we have turkey! Younger Daughter/Chef Sam cooked a finely-seasoned citrus bird, stuffed with orange wedges and a few lemons, both inside & pinned between the legs and sides. It fell apart when it came out of the oven ... as tender and juicy as we've ever had.
Her cornbread dressing had just a pinch of Mexican peppers in it - not too much - for a little "kick", and gravy with pan juices, tangerine, mustard and citrus pepper.
My wife took her pumpkin pies to a whole new level with Vietnamese cinnamon (stronger than the Ceylon stuff we normally use) and just a pinch of star anise. Best. Pie. Ever!
