Popeyes Biscuits

In this recipe, we'll be trying to imitate the famous Popeyes biscuits. Working in a cool environment is very important as we want to keep everything dry and tight until it gets to the oven. 

Ingredients for biscuits:
All-Purpose flour - 1 cup (chilled)
Cake flour - 1 1/4 cups (chilled)
Baking powder - 2 1/2 tsp. (chilled)
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp. (chilled)
Granulated sugar - 2 tsp. (chilled)
Kosher salt - 2 tsp. (chilled)
Butter - 7 tbsp. (frozen)
Butter - 1 tbsp. (melted)
Buttermilk - 3/4 cup (chilled)
Cranberry Glazed Fried Turkey

Come Thanksgiving time, you might as well take a number and stand in line if you wish to use the oven. Why crunch numbers trying to calculate turkey baking times, when you can break tradition with this fried turkey recipe?

 Just between you and me, the reason to try turkey wings instead of a full turkey is to free up some much-needed oven space. Question is, are you brave enough?

Ingredients for fried wings:
Buttermilk - 1 quart
Salt and Pepper - as needed
Turkey parts - wings, flats, and drumettes separated
Cranberry sauce - 14 oz. (canned is fine)
Orange juice - 2/3 cup
Soy sauce - 3 tbsp.
Vegetable oil - 3 quarts (for deep frying)
All-Purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
Parsley leaves - for garnish
Home-Made, Rich Chocolate Tart

Unsalted butter - 1 stick (room temp.)
Powdered sugar - 1/4 cup
Eggs - 1
All-Purpose flour - 1 1/4 cups
Ground almonds - 1/2 cup

Fig Cranberry Sauce

A nice and classy twist to the good ol' cranberry sauce. How about some figs? Bet you never thought of that! Throw some wine in there and you have yourself a rish cranberry sauce. For a non-alcoholic alternative, go for clear apple juice.

Dried figs - 1 cup (stemmed, coarsely chopped)
Cranberries - 12 oz. (fresh or frozen)
White sugar - 3/4 cup
Orange peel - 3 strips
