Sara Moulton's Thanksgiving Turkey Brine

Thanksgiving is perhaps the biggest cooking day of the year and "GMA" viewers turned to Sara Moulton for help with the big meal. Her recipe for a classic and simple turkey brine was one of the most popular recipes of the year.

Moulton writes that "this recipe makes three quarts of brine, enough for a 10- to 25-pound turkey. All of the spices and herbs in this recipe add great flavor; if you can't find one for some reason, don't worry, just leave it out."

Deen Bros' Speedy Mini Meatloaves

"Jamie Deen's favorite meal in the world is his wife Brooke's meatloaf," the Deen brothers write in their cookbook "Take It Easy." "Making meatloaf in muffin pans means everyone gets his or her own, which kids always love. Of course, if you're a fan of meatloaf like Jamie is, it means you have to admit to eating two -- or more -- at a time.

"We glaze the tops with a mixture of ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and mustard for extra flavor. But for kids, you can also serve ketchup alongside or as 'frosting' on top after it comes out of the oven."

Wolfgang Puck's Pan-Roasted Chicken

Wolfgang Puck shared his secret for making moist chicken every time with "GMA."

"This is my secret for success with a small roast chicken," he writes in the cookbook "Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy" (Rutledge Hill Press, 2004). "Its skin will be mahogany brown and crackling, while all of its meat, white and dark alike, will be moist and flavorful. The chicken's anatomy, with the tender, low-fat breast meat so prominently exposed to the oven's dry heat, makes it difficult to perfect oven-roasted chicken, as it's easy to overcook the light meat."

Flattening the chicken by removing the backbone -- butchers call this "butterflying" -- is an easy and convenient way to get around the problem. Butterflying changes the anatomy of the chicken so that it cooks more evenly.
