Happy Holidays to all of you and thank you for a wonderful year. I would like the recipe section to include some of yours. Thank you for the feedback on my recipes, but I am sure you have some great recipes that you have enjoyed with your family over the years. I will give you credit of course; just send me your recipe and a picture of the finished product and we are good to go.
This Thanksgiving I decided to try a new cooking method for the turkey called the “spatchcock” method. This is a whole turkey with its backbone removed. The turkey is then opened up like a book and laid flat before brining and roasting. It is much easier than it sounds and it cooks in 1/2 the time and it is delicious. I have to say the presentation is not as grand as we are accustomed to, however it is a great way to do Thanksgiving dinner.
We experienced a quick frost last week so I had to pick my Meyers lemons. I have decided to make Limoncello as holiday gifts; it is my first try so wish me luck. The recipe only uses the lemon zest, so I will freeze the juice from the lemons in ice cube trays. My brother in law, Stephen, tells me the Limoncello is easy and delicious.
I look forward to your responses and recipes. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!
