Gluten-Free Pie Crust

I have tried a lot of recipes trying to find one that compared with the traditional wheat crust that I have been missing. After throwing away many batches, I finally came up with this one and my family loves it. They said they couldn't tell the difference (I am not sure I believe that) but it sure did satisfy my cravings. Hope you like it too.

Rich Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy

Rating: Unrated
If you're like me, I can't stand the last minute rush and expectations in making the turkey gravy. You have one shot and it better be good! Well, this takes out all the stress of that last minute dash. Can be frozen or refrigerated for five days. This is honestly the best turkey gravy I've ever had. You dirty a few pots and pans, but it sure beats the last minute rush Thanksgiving Day. Let me know what you think. Bon appetite!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Rating: Unrated
This tasty appetizer seasoned with thyme, oregano, and savory. Choose good sized mushrooms, about 2 inches across. When cleaning mushrooms, don't run them under water. They are like little sponges, and will absorb it; just wipe them clean with a damp towel. The filling can be made with fresh, canned, or imitation crabmeat. If using canned, be sure to rinse it first.

The Best Mashed Potatoes

This recipe is often requested during Thanksgiving. It's totally tasty and everyone will rave! For a variation, serve in a casserole dish, and refrigerate overnight. Sprinkle extra Parmesan cheese and butter over potatoes and reheat in the oven.
