A turkey is roasted in a compound butter made with cider, maple syrup, lemon peel and fresh herbs. This recipe includes instructions for making a gravy using vegetables that have been roasted with the turkey.
Easy and delicious fruit dip. Always a hit, and the kids LOVE IT. Slice up a selection of fruit and snacks to serve with the dip. My family likes apples, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes, pretzels, raisin bread, or muffins.
Dried plums and currants tossed with salted, roasted almonds, creme de cassis, and mint is the stuffing for my rolled lamb roast. It's a very easy way to dress up a lamb roast during the holidays. The simple herb rub adds just the right amount of seasoning along with fresh garlic inserted into the top of the roast. My balsamic basil fig sauce creation drizzled over the sliced lamb is the perfect finishing touch and extremely flavorful thanks to the fresh basil.
