This easy recipe for pasta with mozzarella and turkey meatballs is a fun spin on the classic spaghetti with meatballs, and has the extra added advantage of coming together in about 20 minutes for those busy weekday nights when you know you should make dinner, but you don’t want to, but you should. If you can hang in there for those twenty minutes, you will be rewarded with a nice warm bowl of pasta with cute little meatballs, sweet cherry tomatoes and melty mozzarella, and if that isn’t incentive for spending those twenty minutes in the kitchen I don’t know what is. Let’s make it!
I know, I know, it’s not even The Day and I’m already dreaming about the leftovers. And by leftovers, I mean this perfect, perfect Thanksgiving sandwich…thick slices of leftover turkey nestled between generous spoonfuls of stuffing and cranberry sauce, with a nice puddle of gravy. All served up on a soft roll, and now you are dreaming about leftovers too, right? And while it might not seem like a recipe is needed for a turkey sandwich, in my experience it’s all about how you put it together.
So, once the turkey is carved and the mashed potatoes are eaten and the pumpkin pie is sliced and you are once again hungry even though you swore you would never be hungry again, come on back to Framed Cooks and let’s make it!

Tis the season when yes, even I venture into the deep waters of Putting My Bathing Suit On. Which pretty much means I put it on and head for the deep water where I am visible from the neck up, and the rest of me is a vague watery blur…or so I hope, anyway! And one of the things that keeps me bathing suit pretty-much-ready is the fact that every few summer burgers or so, I trade in my usual beloved cheeseburger for this slim and trim turkey lettuce burger. I’m talking ground turkey spiced up with sea salt and fresh ground pepper and a little cumin, grilled until it has a nice char on it, anointed with all the fixings and served not on a bun but between two pieces of crunchy lettuce. Let’s make it!
I’ve had all kinds of chili cravings lately, maybe because we are STILL SEEING SNOWFLAKES here in the springtime month of April. And as a result, I come home wanting a bowl of warm spiciness to take the chill off, but making a pot of traditional chili on weeknights takes more time and organization than I have…except for this weeknight turkey chili. This particular version uses ground turkey instead of beef, and simmers up with tomatoes and onion and a lovely conglomeration of spices in just about 30 minutes. And 30 minutes on a chilly, busy weeknight I can definitely handle. Let’s make it!
Right about now you are probably smack in the middle of a Thanksgiving whirlwind, or you know somebody who is. The turkey is thawing or brining, the pumpkin pies are baking, you are searching for that cornbread stuffing you know you have somewhere, and you’re sending someone to the store to pick up the marshmallows you forgot to get for the top of the sweet potato casserole.
