Italian Vegetable Soup
I was pretty disappointed in this soup, although my family loved it. I wanted more of a vegetable soup, and it was a bit too much meat for my liking. However, my sons and husband liked it alot as they are big meat eaters. I also followed the other reviews and added more water than called for (3 cups more) and it still was too thick for me and more like a stew than a soup. I would also suggest not putting the cabbage in until about 5 minutes before the soup is done as it was overcooked as was the pasta. Next time, I will definitely use half of the meat. And add more fresh (not canned as we live in California and eating canned vegetables is nasty) vegetables. I would as some mushrooms, and some zuchinni. I think this is a great base soup, but it can definitely be better than the reviews say it was.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing
This is the best stuffing of all time. I make it every year, and people expect me to make it. They love it. It is delicious and never disappoints. I never include the gizzards, and it tastes just as delicious. I cook it in a pyrex dish outside the bird. You can't go wrong making this.

Turkey Brine
I am not sure if it was this bring as I have never brined my turkey before, or if we had a bad bird, but our turkey did not taste good. I have never had a bad bird from this specialty butcher before, so I am going to blame the brine. It was not good and we paid $85.00 for the bird. Pretty disappointing.
