turkey cranberry croissant sandwich

Get ready to make yummy noises. This is, hands down, one of my very favorite sandwiches. The flaky, buttery croissant, the slightly spicy cream cheese spread, the maple-glazed turkey, a slight crunch from the spring greens and pecans… all topped off with whole cranberry sauce and a little sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. I…

woolworth’s lunch counter hot turkey salad

Today I woke up feeling a little bit oogie and didn’t really want to get out of bed. Ho hum. I got up anyway, took a couple ibuprofen (maybe I need to buy a new pillow)…made a pot of tea… took a leisurely bath… and used some lavender scented moisturizing oil (that I usually scent…

ham salad tea sandwiches with fig butter

It’s so great when a recipe just comes together the way you want it to. These little tea sandwiches turned out perfect. Just the right amount of everything to equal a great tea treat. These were good with my iced Grand Keemun, but I imagine they would be wonderful with just about any good quality…

Good morning! I’m headed out to the kitchen to start making our potato salad, sandwiches and a pie for our picnic today. We may end up enjoying it on the screened-in porch if it rains, but I’m determined to have a picnic, even if it’s not under the shade of a big tree on a…

butternut spinach souffle muffins

Hello Lovelies! As I mentioned in my Apple Butter Oat Muffin post, I am having so much fun playing with all of this Demarle Silpat cooking/ baking stuff. I made these savory muffins to go with soup a couple nights ago and they turned out just as beautiful as the sweet muffins. The flavors remind…

“apple pie” turkey brie panini sandwich

I invented another sandwich! It’s exactly what I was going for. A grilled, cheesy panini with the flavors of autumn in every bite. The harvest apple jam and buttery, rustic bread are reminiscent of apple pie… thus the name. serves 2 4 slices rustic sourdough bread 8 slices maple glazed, roasted turkey breast, sliced thin…

homestyle turkey and noodles

I like to save all of the bones, giblets, wings, and necks from my turkeys and chickens so I can make homemade soups and stews. This is a frugal way to go and very flavorful. I decided to take a few pictures of the easy process so I could share it with you. This year…
