Ingredients
  • 3 cups flour, plus a little extra in case you need it
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/4 cups water
Directions
  • Dissolve sugar in warm water; sprinkle dry yeast over water and leave until the yeast gets frothy - 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, put flour and salt in food processer and pulse briefly to mix.  Pour in the frothy yeast water and process 30- 40 seconds. The dough should form a rough ball.
  • Put the dough into a fairly large bowl (to allow for its volume when raised) and let rise, covered, in a warm draft-free place, until it has almost doubled in volume, about an hour. (Tip: to create a warm, draft-free place, microwave a glass of water for 2 minutes then put the dough in the microwave to rise along side the heated water.)
  • Sprinkle a little flour on a work surface. Scrape out the dough onto the floured surface and divide in half.  Press and knead each piece for a minute to get out any air bubbles, then roll into cigar-shaped loaves to fit the baking pan(s). Put loaves into lightly oiled pan(s). Make several diagonal slashes in the top and cover with a damp cloth. Let rise until almost doubled, about an hour.
  • When the dough seems almost risen, preheat oven to 425. Bake for 25 -35 minutes. The bread is done when the bottom of the of the loaf  sounds hollow when tapped.  Remove from pan to cool.

  • freshly ground black pepper, adjust to taste
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 celery stalk, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, cut in half

  • Rinse turkey under cold, running water, inside and out. Pat dry with a paper towel, inside and out. Sprinkle salt and pepper inside the body cavity of the turkey.
  • Coat the outside of the turkey with canola oil and lightly sprinkle salt and pepper to cover. Place onion, celery, garlic cloves, and fresh parsley inside the body cavity. Place the turkey in a roasting pan and put the pan in the preheated oven.
  • Bake for approximately 3 hours*. Prevent over-browning by covering the turkey with a tin foil tent. To allow for some browning, remove the tent during the last 45 minutes of baking. To ensure that the turkey is done, insert a meat thermometer into thickest part of the breast. Once the turkey has reached an internal temperature of 180° F, remove it from the oven and let it rest approximately 15 minutes before carving.

*The weight of the turkey will determine the length of time it needs to bake.  Follow  directions on the package for your specific turkey.  It is typically 20 minutes per pound  for an un-stuffed turkey.

Directions
  • Boil pasta according to package directions.
  • During the last two minutes of cooking time, add the sugar snap peas and carrots to the pasta. If you are using frozen sugar snap peas, wait to add them until the very end of the cooking time so they only cook in the water for approximately 30 seconds.
  • When finished cooking, rinse pasta and vegetables under cold water to prevent further cooking and drain well.
  • Mix dressing as described below and set aside.
  • Pour pasta and vegetables into a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Toss until all ingredients are well distributed.
  • Add the dressing and stir until all ingredients are well coated. Refrigerate until chilled.
  • Before serving, add two tablespoons of lime juice and toss to distribute throughout the ingredients.
  • Garnish with chow mein noodles sprinkled on top.

DRESSING:
  • In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, mint, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir the ingredients until they are well blended.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and then set dressing aside until needed.
