Did you enjoy these recipes? Well, for all of you adults out there, spruce them up by adding your favorite vodka. We suggest that if you have kids at your event that you create a lemonade station and place the bottle of vodka for the adults to add to their drinks individually so that the rest of the lemonade can be used for the kids. We hope that you enjoy your holiday and would love to hear your thoughts on our lemonades and even what creative spins you added!

Randy's Flourless, Gluten Free Gravy

landscape-1445902259-gravy-boat-980.jpg

Ingredients

1/2 Cup sweet sherry

All the roasted vegetables from the turkey in the cavity and around the turkey

(I use 1 bunch of celery, 6 large carrots, 3 large onions)
I season my turkey with paprika (not smoked), garlic, butter, salt and pepper

All the juices from the turkey

Some of the skin and turkey off the bone (you cannot use from carvings after you have carved the turkey.)

2 cups chicken stock

Method:

1. Take a small stock pot and place all ingredients.  Simmer in a pot for about 45 minutes until all vegetables are completely tender.  Get a blender and start taking small patches of the mixture with the juices and blend until smooth.  Keep doing until all liquid and mixture is done.  Take a look and taste (you can add Kitchen Bouquet to darken a little).

NOTE: This can be done the day ahead and reheated.  If too thick, use some chicken stock.
