    Baby Artichokes:
    There is no particular use for the water as it was added just to cover the chokes in baking (if necessary). Could be saved and used for a lemon sauce. Make a paste of flour additional lemon and the liquid...add spices of your choice.

  • eli1084 5 years ago about Whole Spice Chicken Curry
    soooo good! I LOVED it! and I love the way plot thickens writes out the recipe, made me laugh a few times! I used bone in chicken breast instead and opted for a reduced fat yogurt cuz i am supposed to be eating healthy these days but a full fat yogurt would have been much better. sometimes you just have to go for it!

  • plot_thickens 6 years ago about Baked Brined Chicken
    Eyep! Turkey, duck, it all works. This was actually first developed for turkey, and then cut down for a chicken's lesser poundage. Just ramp it up... and for a really big turkey, I use a garbage bag in a large cooler, cradled in ice.

    I'm guessing you're a professional writer -- and if not, you should be! As the plot_thickens you could sure stir up some good pot boilers. I'd like to know more about YOU.
