This recipe is a great way to use up leftover roast turkey. Or just use deli turkey if you prefer. I love the combo of smoky bacon and blue cheese…yum! Radicchio is a sturdy leafy green veggie that holds up well to heat. I didn’t have any (and wasn’t going to make another trip to […]

I’m always on the search for new ways to use up leftover turkey, which is what led me to this delicious soup. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and herbs, and you can substitute different veggies depending on what you have on hand. For instance, I used green beans instead of zucchini. Serve with crusty bread […]

December 11, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich, Thanksgiving, Turkey

This delicious sandwich is a great way to use up leftover roast turkey or chicken.

If you can’t find fontina, substitute another mild cheese […]

The recipe says it will feed 6-8 but you’d need to serve with other dishes (soup, salad, etc.) to feed […]

Turkey or Pork Fried Rice

April 28, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Asian, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Rice, Turkey

We love fried rice in our house. Not only do you get all the food groups in one dish (protein, carbs, veggies), it’s also super quick and easy to make. I used ground turkey instead of ground pork and it worked great! It’s important to use cold leftover rice because freshly-made rice will turn into a […]
