Turkey Brine
Rating: Unrated
KELLIKITTI's rating

what a delicious way to prepare turkey! I actually made a turkey breast only, but still wanted to try the brining process on a small scale. I cooked and cooled the brine, then lined a large stockpot with a roasting bag. I placed the breast in the bag, then filled and tied the bag. It was perfect-- the stockpot kept it under control in the fridge, and the bag kept the turkey soaking in the juices.

Homesteader Cornbread

I have made this twice, and this cornbread came out delicious! I soaked the cornmeal a bit longer than recommended, about 10-15 mins. I mixed for between 5 and 10 minutes. The first time I didn't soak or mix as long, and it came out a little too dense. The second time, with those changes, it came out PERFECT!

JELL-O® Double Chocolate Pie

This is a favorite in our house, although I do not follow it exactly. I use 2 packages of the sugar free, fat free chocolate pudding mix and 2 cups milk to make the filling, then stir in some whipped topping. I add it to the pie shell, and add whipped topping on top without pudding mix in it. Finally, I grate some dark chocolate over the top as a garnish :)

Pasties II

Delicious. I am so glad I decided to make my own dough! I followed the recommendations of others and added a few shakes of worcestershire sauce to the veggies and beef. I also placed the veggies first, then the beef on top, so the juices from the beef went into the veggies. Finally the best suggestion was to use the wax paper you are rolling out the dough with to help fold the top of the pasty over.

Millie Pasquinelli's Fried Chicken

This is a great base recipe for fried chicken! You can add other ingredients and play with the amounts of seasoned salt, garlic, and salt and pepper until you get the right combo for you. After the first flour-ing, I put the chicken pieces in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Then I egg, re-flour, and fridge again for another 30 minutes. I find this helps keep the coating on even better.
