Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I am a terrible cook. I have tried cooking a turkey for 17 years, and it's never to my liking. I tried this recipe. The look was Beautiful! The taste was just 'ok.' I used a fresh (not frozen) turkey. The brining process was a big mess. I used an oven bag, that ripped, so I had to transfer my brine & turkey into another pot. When doing so, blood-soaked water splattered everywhere..... walls, countertops, blinds, window and husband that went running! So, beware. The only thing that I loved about this turkey, was the fact that it kept it's moisture day-after-day when eating left-overs. I will try it again next year. Also: I didn't have any issues when turning my turkey. I turned it over at the 3 hour mark.

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I am a terrible cook! Nothing I cook turns out GOOD! Nothing!! However, this was the best!!!! I am so proud of myself. The best pot pie I have ever had!! I ate it for Breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner. I simmered my veggies a little longer, added canned cubed potatoes (that I drained), and added a little more chicken stock & milk at the end (only because it looked a little thick). I used Pillsbury frozen deep dish pie crust, and topped it with the Pillsbury roll-type pie crust for the top. (You can find this in the canned biscuit section. Two rolls came in the box). After putting the roll-type pie crust on top, I pinched the edges to make a design. This was beautiful. I am a firm believer to always use "name-brand" stuff, so I used Byrd's Eye Frozen Peas and Byrd's Eye Frozen green beans. Yumm! Yumm! Also, I did not put my pies in a pie dish, because the Pillsbury Frozen Deep Dish Pie Crust were already in a metal pie pan. I placed both pies on top of a baking sheet. Note: While I was preparing everything, I left the frozen pie shells out, so they had time to unthaw. Yumm!Yumm!
