I really think I need to make writing my blog a New years resolution..
There are still tons of new recipes for me to try out. And at Christmas time, I added new cookie recipes to my repertoire. Sorry, one day, I will post them..In the new year, we have not started our hard core diet yet. There is no new junk food in the house. We are eating more clean and not buying Fried chicken from the local grocery store as convenience. (IT does taste great) I made my first turkey over the weekend. My Husband was quite surprised that I had never made a full fledged turkey. I had to call my Mom and sister for some pointers. One of our vendors gave me a 20 lb bird for Christmas. Shoved it in the freezer and waited until January. This baby took about a day and a half of thawing out. Hung out in the kitchen sink. On Sunday, I removed the insides, basted with butter and spiced it up. 4 and 1/2 hours later, we had turkey. I let it sit for about one hour. Covered it with foil. Then I started carving. That bird was still hot... Carving is not something I am very good at.. Those skills need LOADS of work.
Probably should have covered it with foil sooner.
This was delicious, BUT it could have used some Vanilla Ice Cream
modified from Cooking.com
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup fresh Cranberries (fresh or frozen)
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1/2 of a Yellow Cake mix. (use the other half another day)
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
4 tablespoons Butter, melted
1/2 chopped Pecans
Lightly spray or grease the slow cooker insert. Add all 4 apples and the 1 cup of cranberries to the insert. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the fruit. Evenly pour your cake mix over the apples and cranberries. Gently sprinkle the brown sugar over the cake mix. Slowly pour the melted butter over the brown sugar. Drop in your chopped pecans all over the mixture. Add a dash of cinnamon all over the top.
Put lid on crock. set on high setting for 2 1/2 hours. When completed, gently remove lid. Wipe off lid.
Remember to peel your apples before you start chopping.
It is loads more work this way to peel
