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!
I do love a good sheet pan chicken dinner! First of all, it is a great way to get a flavorful combination of chicken and veggies together in one easy to make supper. Second of all, because it is a sheet pan dinner there is exactly ONE pan to wash after supper is over. And while I am always happy to make my traditional sheet pan dinner of chicken with carrots and broccoli, sometimes I want to be a little more splashy, sheet pan chicken-wise.
So with that, I bring you this zingy recipe for Mediterranean sheet pan chicken. Ready to spice up your chicken dinner? Let’s make it!
The Southern husband likes nothing more than a good steak dinner (okay, maybe he likes shrimp and grits more, but that’s it!) and while I am always wanting to give him his heart’s desire, a steak and potato supper in the middle of the summer can be a little heavy. Give me a luscious steak with blue cheese and mashed potatoes on the side any day in February, but here in early August I am all about the salads. So proving that you can have your cake (or in this case steak!) and eat it too…may I present this recipe for easy steak and potato salad! Let’s make it!
Ah, this chicken soup! It has so many things going for it, not the least of which is that it cooks up low and slow all day long in your slow cooker, which means that you will walk in to your kitchen at the end of the day and it will dawn on you that yes, dinner is pretty much almost made. Along with that, it’s packed with carrots and celery and sweet onion and potatoes, so not only is it scrumptious and super easy, it’s also good and good for you. It’s the soup that keeps on giving. Let’s make it!
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!
Yes, I know this is my second soup recipe in a row, but whether you are in the mood for Italian wedding soup or this silky, hearty chicken avocado soup, soup is what’s on the menu because it is finally FALL. Fire in the fireplace, leaves crunching under foot, time to get out your favorite sweater season, and there’s no better way to welcome in the delightfully crisp fall weather than with a nice bowl of soup.
This chicken artichoke soup is one of my current faves, because it has all the creaminess of a cream bisque, but with no cream. Nope, the artichokes join forces with a few other veggies and your blender to magically transform into creamy, healthy soup deliciousness. Let’s make it!
