Out of this World Turkey Brine
After spending way too much money on brining mix at W & S for the last 4 years, I decided to try this recipe and am I glad I did! I followed the recipe as is and threw in a cut-up orange with rind along with some fresh rosemary and sage. I loved the ease of not having to first cook and then cool the brine. Instead of putting the turkey and brine in a roasting bag (not large enough for a 16.5 lb. turkey and the brining liquid) or a large brining bag (too pricey), I use a small styrofoam cooler which holds everything nicely and still fits in my refrigerator. After soaking the bird for 24 hours, it was cooked on a charcoal rotisserie with mesquite wood chips and, honestly, it was the best tasting turkey I've ever had! It was much better than the Thanksgiving turkey which was cooked the same way, but brined in the expensive W & S dry brine mix. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp
The first time I tried this recipe I followed it exactly and the shrimp was very good. However, my husband and I both like our BBQ shrimp with a bit more heat, so the next time I added sirachi chili sauce and fresh lime juice to the marinade. OMG…SHRIMP NIRVANA!!! Fed 6 people 4 pounds of shrimp and they would have eaten more had I made more! This is an excellent basic marinade. You can tweak it however you like to make it yours.

Vicki's Hush Puppies
My husband loves hushpuppies, but every time I've tried to make them they've been terrible...until tonight. I cut the recipe in half and followed it almost as written; I didn't have self-rising flour, so I added 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda to AP flour and added some spices. The batter was too dry, so I added a little bit of buttermilk. It took me a little practice...the first ones I made got way too brown before the insides had cooked, so I reduced the temperature of the oil a little and made the spoonfuls smaller...and PERFECTION! My husband was in hog-heaven and even though I've never been a huge hushpuppy fan, I have to admit these were really good. As other reviewers have said, these are rather sweet, so add your sugar accordingly.
