It’s not even Thanksgiving and I am already dreaming sweet dreams of the potential leftovers. And while I am always up for a perfect Thanksgiving leftovers sandwich, once I get that out of my system this is my next favorite way to use up any remaining turkey, veggies and gravy, along with some freshly cooked rice. Say hello to Thanksgiving fried rice, which just might be your new favorite leftovers recipe. Make sure you get your fair share of those leftovers and let’s make it!
There is nothing more comforting than a pot full of a warm and wonderful stew bubbling away on the stove, and I have a whole lot of beef and chicken stews on this site that I go back to time and again for just that reason. This particular recipe for spiced red wine beef stew is one that I pull out right around this time of year, because not only does it have all that wonderful beef stew thing going on, but it also includes cinnamon and cloves and nutmeg and red wine, and oh my my. It’s holiday perfect. It’s chilly evening perfect. It’s time…let’s make it!
I do love a good pot pie, and I love it even more when the pot pie crust is made out of creamy, dreamy mashed potatoes. And I also love dishes that I can make ahead and then just bake up later when things are busy. I get all of this and more with this easy recipe for chicken pot pie with mashed potato crust…the more is the delicious taste of tender chicken with carrots and celery in a light herbed sauce, and did I mention the mashed potato topping? Ready for your new favorite pot pie? Let’s make it!
Of all the many soup recipes I have on this site (and I have 88 – I just counted), I think the ones I make in the slow cooker are my favorites. There is something about the low and slow process of simmering gently all day long that gives soups and stews such a rich, homey, comforting flavor. And so while I do love my various and sundry chicken noodle soup recipes, I figured it was high time I gave this comfort food classic a whirl in the slow cooker. And yep, it was a good, good thing. Ready to slow cook everyone’s favorite comfort food soup? Let’s make it!
These perfectly sized cottage hand pies are the love child of cottage pie (which is shepherd’s pie made with beef instead of lamb) and a tender flaky biscuit. I am not shy about saying the biscuits are the kind that come from the refrigerated tube in the supermarket, making this fun supper totally doable on a busy weeknight. And despite that picture up there, you really don’t need a knife. Or a fork. Or anything other than your appetite and a napkin.

Oh, I love and adore this soup. For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, til death do us part, I love this soup, and true love lasts forever. I first posted this recipe in the very early days of my blog, and except for the pictures and a couple of little tweaks, this recipe HAS in fact lasted forever…or for the past 8 years, anyhow. Packed with veggies, pasta and little baby meatballs, this soup has something for everyone. Ready for some soup happiness? Let’s make it!
