Mint Buttercream Frosting With Dark Chocolate Glaze
This was great! Got so many compliments, and many people have asked for the recipe. I used the frosting on a delicious chocolate cake, so in order to not have too much chocolate, I left out the chocolate glaze. I also added the mint extract a little bit at a time so I could make it just minty enough for me. Then I added water instead of milk to thin out the consistency because the milk messes with the color. I definitely had to add more than 4Tbs to get the icing thin enough to frost my cake, it just depends what you are using it for.

Fluffy French Toast
Turned out great! I took another reviewers suggestion, and used shorting to grease the pan. This does the trick much better than butter! Get's the french toast nice and golden without burning. I had just made a loaf of beer bread from the recipe beer bread I and used that for the bread. It was delicious. Melted down some strawberry jam with some water and boiled it until it made a delicious syrup :)

Turkey Brine
I am only giving it 4 stars because I changed it, but this is a really good base to start out with. But what is great about brine is that you can really do no wrong, this is because it is more about the moistness instead of the flavor. I mean it add flavor, but if you add orange juice, your turkey isn't going to taste like an orange, maybe only slightly. But I used half a gallon of vegetable broth, and the other half gallon I used apple juice like others. I also used less salt since others complained about saltiness. I didn't have savory, so I didn't use that, but I couldn't tell the difference. I also added some Samuel Adams beer. This Turkey came out so moist and golden. My bf said he thought that turkeys couldn't really look like that. Some said it was best turkey they ever had, and my sister who doesn't like turkey told me that she even enjoyed it
