    Your photos came out great (especially the eyeball 🙂 )

    My stock recipe is very similar–I don’t chop my onion, I throw it in whole with the skin on (it makes a darker stock) and I also put celery in my stock.

    In the soup I put carrots, corn, onions and celery (and, of course, turkey). I’d put in peas and string beans too, but the son doesn’t like peas and the husband doesn’t like string beans.

    The precooking of the noodles is a great idea. My mistake this time was cooking the noodles in the soup and my soup almost became a weird turkey noodle stew.

    Making stock seems so intimidating to me. And time consuming. I think that’s the appeal of Ms. Rachel Ray and her – whip out this gourmet seeming meal in less than 20 minutes.

    I make chicken stock sometimes but I have found I love the penzey’s chicken starter. It’s good and easy.

    I’m so lazy, I don’t even put veggies in my stock. Just fill up the stock pot, throw in the stripped carcass with some salt and pepper and let ‘er boil.

    Once the stock is done and drained, I leave about 2 1/2 qts for soup, then portion out and freeze the rest.

    Make a light to medium blond roux of 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup flour (yeah baby!) Add chopped up carrots, onions and celery and cook for about 10 min before adding the stock, what’s left of the turkey meat, 1 cup of rice, and some fresh sprigs of thyme. Cover and simmer for 20, then add 1 cup of cream or, *sigh* I guess you could use half-and-half, simmer for another 5 and voila!
    Cream of Turkey and Rice Soup!

    Mama called this morning asking for a turkey soup recipe. I remembered yours and shared it with her. She is excited to try it! Thanks!

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
