Spicy Stuffing for a Roasted Turkey

By: Steve Somerman


For an 18-to-20-pound turkey, you need three boxes of Stove Top Herb Stuffing, and mix, in a large bowl, one diced red bell pepper, one diced gold bell pepper, one diced green bell pepper, one diced small white onion and one cup diced mushrooms. Set the bowl of bell peppers, onions and mushrooms aside. Have cayenne pepper and one stick (1/2 cup) of butter ready, which you will need later.


Make all three boxes of Stove Top Stuffing as per the instructions on the box in a large pot. After the stuffing is done, add cayenne pepper to taste (This makes the stuffing and the turkey spicy!). After the stuffing is done, fold in the, the mixture of diced bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms until it is evenly mixed in with the stuffing. Add the stick (1/2 cup) of butter and mix it in with the stuffing. Stuff your turkey and, with the remaining stuffing, place it in a 9 x 13 glass or metal cooking dish and refrigerate it. When the turkey is almost done, take the stuffing out and bake it for 20 minutes at 325 degrees or until lightly crisp on top.

French Connection

By: Ryan Romero


2 Glass and 2 min of steam to warm the glasses

1 1⁄2 ounces Courvoisier brandy

1 ounce Grand Marnier


Take out your brandy snifter and add Courvoisier. Then the Grand Marnier. Suspend the snifter over a glass of very hot water, gently heating the drink, which really helps release the aromas and makes the alcohol bite a little smoother.

Not Your Average Potato Gratin

By: Kevin Jordan


Baking Potatoes, the amount depends on your dish size and potato size (at least 5 or 6)

Baking Dish (depth depends on how much you want to make) and a baking sheet

Large Pot

Gruyere Cheese, a decent size block for shredding/grating

Pint of whipping/heavy cream

Salt, Pepper (preferably white pepper, but not catastrophic if you don't)



Slice potatoes horizontally in even slices, approx. 1/2 in slices after washing. You do not have to peal potatoes, but you can depending on your presentation preferences. Place potatoes in a pot and cover with heavy cream. Do not bring to a boil but a low simmer until potatoes are half cooked, this is why slices should uniform for layering so they cook at an even pace. Cook halfway, because if you cook until all the way for tender, they will fall apart. Grease a baking pan with butter and add the first layer of potatoes. Salt and pepper the potatoes at this time then layer with grated/shredded Gruyere cheese (for those that like nutmeg, try layering ground nutmeg with the salt and pepper). Repeat these steps, not forgetting the salt and pepper at each layer until almost all the way to the top, final layer cheese. Pour in some of the cream from the pot used to tenderized potatoes, about 3/4 to the top of the baking pan. This is where your richness for the dish comes into play. Cover your baking pan with aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet to catch spillage. Bake at 375 for 35-45 min, until knife tender to the bottom of the pan. Remove foil, crank up the heat to 450 for the final 5-10 min or until top of the gratin is lightly brown and remove. You must let the dish rest for a minimum of 20-30 min, so when you dig in, the dish will not fall apart such as a unrested lasagna. Bonus tip, if your baking a ham for the holidays, baste it with Dr. Pepper Soda. So good!
