Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup
Excellent soup! I made this for the first time with only a few modifications, including adding a touch of salt and substituting boccolini for broccoli. I also processed the onion and celery first with a food processor, then also processed the broccolini to small bits to speed up the cooking time a bit (though cooking it does take a bit longer than 10 minutes). Using an immersion blender gave it a nice texture with little bits, and certainly avoided the overly processed effects of a blender. I'll definitely make this again!

Turkey Brine
I cooked one of my best turkeys using this brine recipe for Thanksgiving this year. I brined it overnight, used some of the brining solution in the bottom of the pan, and put apricot jam under the skin of my turkey. I roasted breast-side down and flipped the bird two-thirds through the cooking process. My turkey was unstuffed. I used the brine in the bottom of the pan to baste the turkey every 30-45 minutes. Turned out fantastic! To keep things simple, I also roasted potatoes, carrots, pearl onions, and brussel sprouts rather than making the myriad of traditional recipes which my family doesn't care for, and served with a simple salad of greens, grapes, and pommegranites dressed with poppyseed dressing. Cranberry sauce by TJs and gravy made with a roux of butter and flour plus all the defatted and deglazed turkey drippings with a touch of white wine. Followed up with a homemade pumpkin pie. It's been requested for an apple pie in addition to all of this next year! Bon Appetit!

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
I prepared this recipe for layering a cake and prepping it for fondant. It has wonderful flavor, and after a long bit of sitting in between work of many layers and fondant preparations, I added just a bit more condensed milk and mixed again which turned out to be very helpful. The only note I might add is to not get too worried about how dry and hard the frosting is before adding the milk. I used my mixer and started to worry it wasn't going to turn out right when the mixer started to struggle. I might consider alternating between adding milk and powdered sugar to prevent this in the future.
