Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
I did this in my toaster oven so having them all spread out in one layer isn't possible. I reached in with a fork and stirred them every once in a while. One change, I didn't use butter but sprayed the seeds with Pam and then sprinkled with sea salt for one variety and cinnamon/sugar for the other. 200 degrees for about 25 minutes made them perfect. Simple and wonderful.

Turkey in a Smoker
This is very close to the recipe I use except I don't use cola and I DO use Penzey's spices (Bicentennial rub, toasted onion powder and Pork chop seasoning.) I do put cut up apples, onions and lots of garlic in the cavity. I've smoked turkeys every year for the holidays and always get nice juicy birds and rave reviews. I do not baste it as opening the door lets all the heat out. Several hours into it, I put a ham on the rack above so the ham juices drip down over the turkey; really good! Just make sure the water pan does not run out; that will dry out the turkey. When it's done, I take the pan drippings and reduce them, add that to my gravy stock and then a roux and get a nice smoky gravy. I'm drooling just thinking of it. And the clean-up is SO nice and easy.

Broccoli Chicken Roli
This is practically identical to one that was featured on a Pampered Chef catalog about 4 years ago. It can be made with either chicken or ham and without any canned soup, as this recipe is. It's not necessary to use a glass, but I'll grant that making a wreath out of crescent roll dough is not easy to explain. You simply lay out the individual triangles in a large circle, overlapping them slightly. Then place the mixture along the center of the triangles, again in a circular pattern. Then overlap both ends of all the dough triangles over the mixture and bake. This is delicious and gorgeous to serve at a party.
