Turkey Tetrazzini a la Stouffers(R)
This was a big hit with kids and adults alike! Due to a dairy allergy in our family, I had to change it up a bit and was pleasantly surprised that the recipe still worked well and tasted great with dairy-free ingredients! I used olive oil to saute the vegetables, used 2 Tbsp Earth Balance spread to make the roux, and subbed 1 cup almond milk for the cup of heavy cream. Next time, I think I would "butter" the bread crumbs as other reviewers have suggested to get them to brown, and I would also add maybe 1/2 tsp garlic salt and 1/2 tsp parsley flakes to the mix for a little extra flavor. Thanks for giving us something new to do with Thanksgiving leftovers!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
One of my family members has a dairy allergy, so I wasn't able to use the butter in the topping. I substituted an equal amount of butter-flavored shortening with no ill effects that I could see. The biscuit topping was great! I agree with previous reviewers that the cinnamon-sugar mix should be cut in half. Also, be sure to get ripe peaches - mine were a little under-ripe, and they still had noticeable crunch after baking. Still tasty though!

Chicken with Rice and Gravy
Where to begin with saying good things about this recipe? Like another reviewer, I have trouble frying things - not an issue here. Chicken was perfectly done in 20 minutes (10/side) - fully cooked, juicy, and not one bit burned. I also have issues making gravy. However, this method worked great for me. The only problem was that we wanted more of it! I might consider increasing the servings to 6 for the gravy alone next time. My family devoured this meal, and even more impressive, it was on the table 30 minutes after we walked in the door on a busy weeknight - a new record! I even had time to clean up the kitchen while it was cooking! Served with Brilliant Sauteed Broccoli, also from this site, for a family-friendly, fuss-free dinner. Mashed potatoes instead of rice would be a nice way to change it up.
