Out of this World Turkey Brine
I substituted the water for apple juice. Its another dimension of flavor with the apple flavor. Apple Cider is whole other story, very good with the garlic and pepper.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
I cooked the onions and garlic with the sausage and used real bacon bits, added the potatoes, cooked for 10 minutes and added kale to cook 10 minutes longer. Finished with the cream. Super delish!!!

Red Rice Salad
I was surprised how tasty red rice is, the beets, radishes and kidney beans keep with the color scheme and taste great together. I will make this again, I substituted horseradish mustard for the Dijon mustard and the horseradish. The volume of cooked rice is more than what is needed.
