My family had served deep fried turkey at Thanksgiving for several years until I made this. (You know, the method that causes so many house fires every year.) This recipe is just as good if not better than fried turkey (in my opinion), and you don’t even need a fire extinguisher. The brine makes it super juicy and tender, but the most important thing is to use a meat thermometer and keep an eye on it. The secret to a juicy, tender turkey is to not overcook it!!
This is a simple recipe for when you get your hands on a nice pumpkin. Since no recipe on Earth will call for an entire pumpkin, you’ll need to prep it so it can be added easy to recipes or enjoyed on its own. Baking is much superior to boiling because you don’t loose as many nutrients!
So this definitely isn’t a lazy recipe like I usually make, but it is super simple and very yummy. I put these noodles in Chris’s homemade chicken broth and it was amazing. Let’s just say if I was sick today, I’m not anymore.
Okay going into this, I did not realize how easy yet exhausting risotto is. It’s basically rice with broth stirred in, but it’s stirred, stirred, stirred in. I’m talking about 30 minutes of constant stirring. Plus grating parmesan is always a pain in the neck. Maybe it seems more exhausting than it really is because I was holding Ellie the whole time. All I’m saying is, enter this recipe with an open mind and strong arms!
