Yeast Doughnuts
There are several reasons why this might be tricky: using yeast always is. The disasters some have noted almost certainly occurred because the yeast was dead (stale). It might be advisable to proof the yeast before making the recipe: dead yeast will never leaven anything. Also, if one wishes a fluffier or lighter doughnut, don't bat the dough down completely: fluffier dough means a fluffier outcome. I must say I make this with sugar substitutes (being diabetic): xylitol or Diabetisweet (an Isomalt product) works fine: indeed, xylitol can be bought in powdered "confectioners'" form. It also helps to add some "nonbulk" sugar substitute also, Splenda (Sucralose) being preferred, in addition to the xylitol or Diabetisweet (which should replace granular and confectioners' sugar on a one-to-one basis): I would suggest four or five packets per recipe. Keeping your yeast alive and happy till baking is, I would say, key.

Thanksgiving Meatloaf
Great... and so nice to have a turkey recipe that actually tastes like turkey! Great served with roasted new potatoes. A variation I like is to use Herbes de Provence instead of Poultry Seasoning. Any nice tart apple will do (the Granny Smiths being the most easily obtained of these).

Melissa's Turkey Meatloaf
I made the recipe as indicated and it was quite good. Later I varied it: instead of tomato soup, I used cream of celery, and added some sage, rosemary, thyme, and a bit of high-quality chicken bouillon, and I think it was even better: moreover, it actually tasted like turkey-- which is nice for a change (instead of trying to get the turkey to taste like beef). I suppose cream of chicken would do well also, as well as using ground chicken in addition to, or in place of, the turkey.
