Squasage (Sausage-stuffed Squash)
This recipe arrived in my e-mail and I immediately wanted to make it. I didn't have acorn squash but had a couple nice small butternuts. No sausage but some fresh ground pork. No sour cream but some fresh buttermilk. I microwaved the squash and wrapped it in foil to finish cooking. Cooked the pork and seasoned it with salt, pepper, garlic and sage. I had only a couple stalks of celery, which was only about half what the recipe needed, but I had lots of baby bellas, so my recipe had half the celery and twice the mushrooms. I added an extra egg to accommodate the more liquid buttermilk. There wasn't as much room in the butternut halves as there would have been in the acorn ones, so I just heaped up the sausage mixture. Got it all put together and could already tell it would be not just good, but great, and it was. Such a delicious combination of flavors! The fresh, delicious squash played off the richness of the pork and vegetables. It's always a joy to find something reasonably healthy that we will want to eat again. Really good food.

Apple Squares
This is a good recipe. I made it one day, 1 1/2 times the recipe in a 9 x 13" pan. I backed the sugar up by about a third and halved the topping, all based on other people's reviews. The result was good enough that we wanted more but seemed to be missing something, so I made another batch. One and a half times the recipe in a 9" x 13" pan, with full bore sugar. I used Honeycrisp apples, four of them, but otherwise followed the recipe, including the entire amount for the topping. SUCH good food! Lots of classic flavors here, especially when you put a square of it in a bowl and pour some cream in beside it. Sometimes you just need all the sugar. Thank you.

Out of this World Turkey Brine
Please make sure that whatever you are using is FOOD GRADE! Coolers are made to hold ice and insulate: they were never meant to come into actual contact with food. Ditto for buckets and refrigerator storage drawers and more. Manufacturers are required to use a higher grade of plastic--and to AVOID using certain chemicals--when what they are making is expected to come into contact with food. Long exposure time, the variable temperatures and the acidic nature of some of the ingredients all are potential contributors to leaching of chemicals from the vessel to the turkey. Hey, protect your beautiful life and your beautiful health. Make sure you have a food safe vessel and BRINE ON!
