Brined Whole Turkey
Amazingly perfect! So glad that I tried this. I have never brined before, but I'll never NOT brine again! Thank you. Merry Christmas 2012!

Tall, Dark and Stout Chocolate Layer Cake
WOW! So rich, moist, delicious, creamy, and NOT overly-sweet! Simply a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Even my husband "WOWed" at it. And he's not a "lover" of sweets. The stout offsets the sweetness. I did not add the caramels on top because:
In my haste, two out of the three layers fell apart because I did NOT wait to properly cool them, (it was almost midnight and I was dead tired), so instead, I turned it onto a Trifle Cake. It turned out even better because we did not have to slice it for the guests, they just scooped up cake onto a plate and reveled in the chocolatey deliciousness of it. I will make this again and again.
Also, I used the box of triple chocolate fudge cake mix, because that's what I had.

Spinach and Bacon Mac and Cheese
Ridiculously easy & Amazingly Delicious! Fun & different. The kids & grown ups loved it both the same. Much better for a hot, Texas summer than the traditional baking of mac 'n cheese. Doubled the recipe, but as other's suggested, I did not use all of the sauce. I had just over 3/4 cup of sauce left over! But I will use it as a topping for baked potatoes. ;) yum! <3
