Delicious Herbed Spinach and Kale Balls
Great way to prepare a quick and healthy snack. I found a 4lb bag of frozen kale at my local Costco for 3.99 so these will become a staple in my house. I used panko because that's what I had and used half fresh Parmesan and half grated Parmesan. I also chopped the kale more because there were quite a few larger stems. I found my cook time to need an additional 7 to 10 minutes. Good right out of the oven, cold out of the fridge or reheated as a side fir dinner.

Turkey in a Bag
WATCH YOUR TIME! My husband and I have used this method for the last 3 years. By far the best turkey we have ever had and we continue to get rave reviews about it. Here is our secret: Thaw turkey for 5 days in fridge. Follow direction as stated above (although we use stuffing and fill the bird within and inch or so of top of cavity). Put 6 slits in the bag. When it comes to timing We usually have a 16lb bird that we cook at 350 for 2 hours and 15 minutes. When the time is up we take it out of the oven and put the lid of the roasting pan on it. The turkey serving platter then sits on top. We leave it on the counter for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Even then, when we go to take it out of the pan, it is too hot to touch with bare hands. Snip the corner of the bag as someone is holding the bird up to get out juice for gravy. Carve up the bird and enjoy!

Quick Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
I've made this bread now for 3 different occasions and all have received rave reviews. Adults and children alike love this bread. I've baked large loaves, mini loaves, mini muffins, oversized muffins and bundt and all have turned out great. Last time I dropped a teaspoon of lemon oil in and I think it intensified the lemon flavor a bit. I use my kitchen aid mixer and mix med-high for 2-3 minutes. Highly recommended for summer gatherings of all kinds.
