I do love me some Thanksgiving, with family gathered around the table and the turkey and all the fixings. But close after that in terms of things I am thankful for are the leftovers! And every year I try and come up with some new and scrumptious way to serve up those precious leftovers, because is there is something about Thanksgiving leftovers that always transforms magically into comfort food. And so I bring you this year’s spin on next week’s leftovers: turkey shepherd’s pie! Let’s make it!
The best bolognese sauces are slow-cooked, so go find that slow cooker I know you have! Here’s the recipe for the best and easiest slow cooker bolognese sauce ever.
I need to start with a confession…I actually don’t like pimento cheese. Or more specifically, I don’t like pimentos. (I love and adore cheese.) But pimento cheese is the Southern husband’s all time favorite way to eat cheese, and my mama knows it. So she regularly whips up a batch of her pimento cheese, which the Southern husband always says is the best pimento cheese in the world. And knowing how much pimento cheese he has put away over the years, this is high praise.
So if you are a pimento cheese lover (or if you know someone who is), I have a super easy recipe for you, courtesy of my mama. Let’s make it!
I know, this is my second soup recipe in a row, but I can’t help it. It is now officially fall, there is a little nip in the air at night and in the early morning, and as far as I’m concerned that means it is soup season. And since beets are one of my very favorite fall vegetables, I am extra in love with this nifty recipe for easy beet soup with swirled goat cheese. Ready to kick off soup season with me? Let’s make it!
I would like to claim full credit for this bowl of thick, warm, healthy, colorful, scrumptious roasted carrot soup, but the truth is that my mama made it. I heated it up and adorned it with the very last basil sprig of the season (sob!) but she did everything else, and luckily for you and me, gave me both the soup and the recipe. And I am here to tell you that both are just plain wonderful. Ready for some good and good for you roasted carrot soup? Let’s make it!
I am a big old soup lover, and just because we are getting into the lazy hazy days of summer, that doesn’t mean I am giving up my beloved soup. Nope, I’m just going to divert to cool and refreshing soups that are just the ticket for warm summer evenings. Chilled hummus soup. Avocado vichyssoise. And my current favorite, which is this scrumptious and easy shrimp gazpacho. It comes together in less than 15 minutes, and is chock-full of good and good for you summer veggies.
So, ready to cook down with my new favorite summertime soup supper? Let’s make it!
