from Alton Brown's show. Brining the bird is the key to moist meat. Made this again this year, only brined in just water instead of stock to save some dough. Again, the bird turned out perfect. Growing up, I hated white meat because it was always dry and grinding on your teeth ;-), now I love white meat. Cook time includes the brining time.
This is from Alton Brown's Good Eats show and it's an easy and good mac n cheese recipe to have on hand. You won't be buying the boxed stuff again after eating this. (edited 8/15/2008 - This was initially posted with 3/4 tsp of dry mustard but after making this a few times I agree with the reviewer that said this amount is too much so I've reduced it to 1/2 tsp.)
From "Good Eats," episode "Flat Is Beautiful: Going Crackers". You really need an aluminum-free double-acting baking powder for this, but if you can't find one, go with 1/2 t baking powder and 1 t cream of tartar.
From "Good Eats," episode "Flat Is Beautiful: Going Crackers." If you can't find graham flour, sift together 2/3 c all-purpose flour, 1/3 c coarse-ground wheat bran and 1 1/2 tsp wheat germ. Avoid baking powder with aluminum; it will make your crackers taste metallic.
I've yet to cook turkey legs. They're so inexpensive---I've got to try them soon. This recipe in Alton Brown's "Feasting On Asphalt - The River Run," was inspired by a dish at Melanie's Soul Food in north Memphis.
From Food Network, episode "The Case for Butter". Although the herbs might change, the technique is the reason for posting this recipe. I have had varying luck with flavored butters. Often, they separate during whipping giving a pretty unappealing appearance to the dish. Not knowing if I was whipping it too long or not long enough, I turned to the "expert". So, 5-7 minutes of beating? Glad I have a stand mixer.
