Orange Chipotle Turkey & Wild Rice Fruit Stuffing Recipe

The thought of Thanksgiving brings visions of a Norman Rockwell painting, with a table laden with all of the traditional foods. Over the past decade or so there have been those that did their best to change those traditions by not having turkey as the star.  I however am not one of those people.  In my world unless you are a vegan or vegetarian it is de rigueur to consume turkey. This does not however mean I am against “playing with the recipes”.  As a chef, this is what I love to do. Below is a fun way  to stick with the basics while making it a bit healthier, giving it a flair of elegance and keeping it gluten free. Supplies 12 - 15lb/5.54-6.8 kg  Fresh Turkey 3 carrots, cut in half lengthwise and widthwise making an elongated half circle  2 stalks celery, cut into 4 pieces each 1 large onion cut into 6 wedges turkey neck and giblets skewers kitchen twine large piece of foil to cover bird, oiled and dusted with flour, or cornstarch if going gluten free Rub Z

Family Cookie Party

Do you have fond memories of those favorite cookies that no will make anymore? You probably not only miss them, you also miss the tradition. How about a Family Cookie Party!!!!! You provide two to three recipes (depending on how complex). — Go to the attic and pull out those old family recipes!  We will plan, shop and do ALL the prep aration for your family (or just kids) baking party. The party usually takes less than an hour (kids baking is sometimes closer to two hours). YaDa Chef provides the ingredients and you provide the equipment (we bring oven thermometers to ensure your cookies are baked properly). There will be enough cookies for the party and some to store in the freezer. *** Disclaimer. Often grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, mom, dad, will omit an ingredient in “their” recipe to ensure no one else can make it. Please be sure and have the best copy of the recipe available. *** The cost for Cookie Party is $125 with up to five family members. Avai
