BIG CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY!! A Butterball Indoor Electric Masterbuilt Turkey Fryer

We have a winner for the Butterball Turkey Fryer!! 
 Drumroll Please............
It is Elaine!  So Elaine, please contact me within 24 hours to claim your prize!!
Followers, I have great news!!!  The Masterbuilt company has provided a Christmas Prize Package for you.  It is a Delicious Indoor Turkey Fryer and it is valued at $159.00.  PLUS, if that were not enough, they want to give you a gift certificate for $15.00 off of a Butterball Turkey and the greatest cookbook you ever saw called "DADGUM That's Good!" written by John McLemore.  This might be the biggest Christmas present you get this year and it is FREE!!!!!

The Butterball Indoor Electric Turkey Fryer and the Masterbuilt All-Purpose fryer help you to overcome your fear of frying.  It's patented technology makes your fryer safe and guarantees you will never over-heat your oil.  There's no open flame to worry about.  It's the fastest way to serve up the best turkey you'll ever taste, in three easy steps:   inject, fry and eat!!

I was given the same prize package to try out because I would never recommend anything I hadn't tried and loved.  For Thanksgiving we had our very first Fried Butterball Turkey and we are hooked!! 
Not only can you fry with this great piece of equipment, but you can boil and steam.  So, whether you are in the mood to indulge in some fried food, or you're being a bit more health-conscious, this has you covered.
Can you imagine a big CRAB BOIL and do you know what you would pay for that at a seafood can't touch this!

You won't believe the great recipes in the cookbook either.  There are recipes for frying, steaming, and boiling.  You will find this to be a very useful tool in your kitchen.  I always say a cook is only as good as the equipment she uses.  You'll be thrilled with this.  Here is where you can find out more about this great fryer.

  31. Hi Debbie...I like to try the fried ice cream. I watched it being made last night on a food show and I think I could do it.

  32. Debbie your blog is awesome as usual! I followed you and Masterbuilt on Twitter and I posted on twitter and posted a comment to Masterbuilt.
    What recipe would I like to try?
    I'd love to try the Fried Ice Cream or the Boiled Lobster from Dadgum That's Good!

  33. Man oh man how could you not want to trythe fried Oreos? That's first on my list if I win. Then a turkey. I usually smoke turkeys for 12 hours, I can't age frying one in less than an hour. And in the house? It wouldn't seem like Chrstmas if I wasn't tending the smoker at 4am in the freezing dark. But I am sure willing to try if I win.

  34. BTW I also follow Masterbuilt on Facebook.

  35. Also wrote on Masterbuilts wall about the contest.

Strawberry Heaven

“The “Debbie” recipe – the recipe that is authentically me.
My absolute favorite dessert recipe.”
All I ever talk about loving is strawberries. I am to strawberries as Paula Deen is to potatoes and butter.
When thinking about my absolute favorite dessert, it had to combine cheesecake, strawberries, and chocolate. Chocolate covered strawberries to be exact!!! So I developed a pie that features all my weaknesses. I love a regular pie crust instead of graham cracker so I have used pie crust, topped with a luscious layer of Kraft Philadelphia Ready-to-Eat Cheesecake Filling, followed by 1 pound of ripe, juicy strawberries enveloped in strawberry glaze topped with creamy, dreamy Cool Whip, and followed by 6 GIANT chocolate covered strawberries. This pie would be a strawberry lovers’ most decadent dream. It is mine…now you know what I dream about.

Strawberry Heaven
Prep time: 50 minutes Cook time: 9 minutes
Serves 6 - 8
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 ½ c. Kraft Philadelphia Ready-to-Eat Cheesecake Filling
2 lbs. of strawberries
14 oz. strawberry pie glaze
8 oz Cool Whip
¾ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Place pie crust in pie pan and flute edges. Bake at 450 degrees for 9 minutes.
3. Cool pie crust at room temperature for 10 minutes and follow in freezer for 10 minutes to cool quickly.
4. While pie crust is cooking and cooling, prepare other ingredients beginning with strawberries. Wash strawberries, core, and slice in half. Save 6 LARGE strawberries for top of pie. Eat a few and enjoy them while you are working so hard. Save enough for the pie.
5. Melt chocolate chips in microwave for approximately 1 minute stirring every 20 seconds. Dip 6 large strawberries in chocolate about ¾ of the way up the strawberry. Place a piece of parchment paper on a plate and cool the strawberries on the paper in the freezer.
6. After the pie crust comes out of the freezer, spread the cheesecake filling directly on top of crust.
7. Place strawberries directly on top of cheesecake and pour strawberry glaze over strawberries.
8. Pipe Cool Whip over strawberries and glaze and top with chocolate covered strawberries. Place in freezer for approximately 15 minutes and serve. Refrigerate any leftovers.

This pie is for the true Strawbery ADDICT and lover.
