Turkey Leftover Recipes!!  Just saying it makes me happy!  I love a good leftover recipe and you know that if you have ever visited this site before.  If not, and you are here reading this you need to check out our leftover recipes… Turkey, beef, pork, chicken and even veggies… we got it!!

Now this is going to sound odd but I love turkey leftover recipes that I make a TON of tempting appetizers and side dishes just so people get full fast and leave my dang turkey alone.. that way I can think of something fun to do with that turkey and serve it to you the next few nights!!

Tonight I served my Handsome Husband this delightful treat!!  It was a big hit at our home.  In fact I took a big pot over to one of our recipe taster’s house too.  This is nice cause with just three to four cups of chopped turkey you can get a pot of soup that will feed 8 to 10!!

What a deal!!!

Enjoy!!

When someone says “turkey” most of our first thoughts go straight to Thanksgiving and the warm family memories around the Thanksgiving dinner table.  In fact, that is one of the reasons it’s my favorite holiday.  It’s all about the food and the memories we create every year.

With all the traditional thoughts we have revolving around turkey It’s hard to imagine a turkey dinner made from your leftover thanksgiving meal that has an Asian inspired taste!!  Well just because we cherish those family traditions and recipes doesn’t mean that you have to stay within that box with your leftovers.  In fact this recipe is so tasty that I will be making a turkey breast all year round just so that I can enjoy this yummy dinner with my family.

It’s the start of the “pumpkin spiced season” and I am out!!  I am way to lazy today to get in the car and drive to the grocery store and get some more…. OkI will admit it here to you now… I am also way too cheap to buy it.  It might be one of my biggest kitchen secrets over the past few years… I have been making on my own and refilling the store bought jar in my spice rack.

Ok… I admitted my dirty little secret to you and now I am suggesting you do the same thing..  think of it this way… they always telling us to use fresh spices in your cooking and baking and YET there are just not that many recipes I make using cloves, ginger, and allspice.   So if I didn’t use these spices to make my own pumpkin pie spice, which I use ALLLLLL the time, these spices would be in my spice rack for years and either I would be using old spices or I would be replacing them every year without using them up… and either way it would be a shame!!

Now, of course, if you want to continue to to buy your pumpkin spice that works too!!  I am all about enjoying the pumpkin spice season… that is what is important here.. I just want you to know you have options!!

I love bbq ribs!! Just absolutely adore it!!

Whenever I see ribs on sale it’s all I can do not to load my freezer up on them. I know that for most people ribs are a summer treat. However, for me it is a year round culinary delight!!

The one “problem” with ribs is that when it is just Handsome Husband and me for dinner, we always end up with leftover ribs. I also know so many people who have had a backyard bbq and they over planned the food and had leftover ribs. Worry not… Just toss those ribs into the freezer and in a few weeks or months when you are craving the bbq craving… you can have it again, but with a twist!!

Well today I am going to share with you a yummy idea to do with leftover ribs…. making them into a mashed potato bowl!! I served mine with cooked carrots, but trust me… any veggie you like will be great. The funny thing is… the inspiration for this dinner was something I saw served at a county fair. They served theirs to look like an ice cream sundae, but it was a meat sundae.

I am always trying not to waste delicious leftovers and this is a new and exciting way to make sure one of my favorites is utilized to its fullest potential!!

I sure hope you enjoy this as much as I do!!

Gluten Free Blue Cheese Cole Slaw Recipe

Before I met my Handsome Hubby, I hated blue cheese.  Well, actually that is not exactly an accurate statement.  I never had it, because I was convinced I would hate it.

Well his sparkling blue eyes and adorable smile convinced me to try it.  WOW!!  I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it.  Actually, I was so convinced I would hate it that I was basically stunned that I liked it.

Now I respect the fact that not everybody enjoys blue cheese.  I get that.  It’s a unique flavor that is not going to appeal to everybody.  Handsome Hubby LOVES it and I enjoy it.  So I thought I would surprise him with this blue cheese slaw.  He really enjoyed it BUT he didn’t realize there was blue cheese in it.  Since I had not told him before he ate dinner he didn’t even realize it was in there… so that tells you that the blue cheese in this slaw is not overwhelming.  You might even surprise non blue cheese eaters with how much they like this unique slaw recipe.

Now remember, if you hate blue cheese I will not be offended that you won’t be trying this recipe.. I respect your culinary choices… However, if you are ever going to tip your toe into the blue cheese world this might be the one to try… mild enough to be enjoyed by people who do not enjoy the flavorful cheese… and yet yummy for everybody to love!!
