THANKSGIVING 2017

GATHERINGS This is a moment in our busy lives, to breath in beauty and exhale gratitude. While the video I have prepared for you best depicts our family celebration, I wanted to also include two of my favorite recipes for you to try any time this year! –        TURKEY STUFFED […]

POTATOES DAUPHINOIS

DAUPHINOIS POTATOES are a classic French style of serving potatoes, but what I think you will love most, is that they are easy to assemble ahead of time, and can be baked along with other things in the oven rather than having to tend to the mashing and serving of […]

TURKEY STUFFED CABBAGE ROLLS

I’ll be honest. I have never been a fan of cabbage, but when I saw this stunning cabbage at the market, it was calling me, ‘experiment, try something new, try to like me’! Having grown up on stuffed grape leaves, I decided I had to at least try this lovely […]

GREEK TURKEY SOUP

While soup is a hearty go-to in the winter, let’s borrow the flavors of traditional Greek cooking, with the addition of egg, lemon, and oregano, known as Avgolemono, and make this a memorable turkey soup! If you have roasted a turkey, (how-to here) you will already have a flavor-filled broth, rich […]

MAC & CHEESE TURKEY ROLL

While soups and sandwiches make for traditional Thanksgiving leftovers, this Mac & Cheese Turkey Roll will fast replace the old tradition! Thanksgiving in a Bite, is what you are sure to say, as all the flavors of sage and onions, celery and roasted turkey are encased in a buttery crunchy […]

THANKSGIVING MEAL 200 YEARS AGO

THANKSGIVING. Nearly 400 years ago. Wow! Imagine how the meal was prepared. Allow me to share a fascinating ‘find’ with you. Nearly midway from the first Thanksgiving until now. I found the pages of what appeared a book in the making. But somehow, they were never compiled, or published. And […]

TURKEY

November brings to mind many things, but usually in that mix of things, turkey finds its way into our thoughts. I’m not quite sure why they are not readily available throughout the rest of the year because turkey meat is not only delicious, it is an affordable way to food-prep […]

SISTERS WEEKEND

Life can get so busy that we forget to take the time to stop the clock, gather with those we love and enjoy, and create memorable moments to cherish during those rat race times of life. This blog post is about just such a weekend as this. SISTERS WEEKEND! My […]

BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

I can’t think of a better way to start each and every day than to nourish my body with things that are not only delicious but also good for me! Muffins are a great way to create a healthful bundle of nutrition that can be savored over a long leisurely […]
