Absolutely perfect recipe!! I opted for the stand mixer method of preparing and mixed the yeast, sugar and warm water in the mixer bowl and allowed to froth for 10 minutes. I then added in the EVOO and flour directly to the yeast mixture. I added some salt, pepper and garlic powder to this as well and then let it beat with the dough hook for a...

A fool-proof recipe that delivers a HECK of a bang! I added 1/4 cup of water and the water mixed with the drippings the turkey breast made in the crockpot got me about 2 cups of drippings.

This one deserves 100 stars!!! I can't believe I made this in the crock pot! I made a 6 1/4 pound turkey (bone in) with skin on.

I was also trying to figure out the appropriate...

Excellent way to prepare artichokes. My new go-to recipe. Super simple and comes out perfectly at the 40 minute mark for me.
