Smoked Turkey

Rating: 4.63 stars
This is an easy to make recipe. I've tried numerous others using colas, fancy pans, etc., but none come out near as good as this. Keeping it simple is the best way. Be sure to use a high-quality charcoal, so that it will burn for a long time. Turkey will be moist tender and smoky!

Chicken and Dumplings IV
Rating: Unrated
The best dumplings are made with baking mix! I've never written down a recipe before so please use your own judgment on the thickening. My husband's mother always did the milk and flour balls in the chicken, he liked mine much better and always asks me to make it. He also loves it when I add more water and rice!
Slow Cooker Pumpkin Steel Cut Oats
Rating: Unrated
SO easy and SO good! This is comfort food for me at it's finest, my all-recipe friends! Like pumpkin pie for breakfast, but you don't have to feel guilty for the rest of the day! Use any sweetener you want and adjust to taste. Enjoy! I make up a big batch then reheat for the next mornings in the microwave covered. Vegan. I like to set it with a timer before I go to bed so it is ready in the morning.
