Perfect Turkey Club

Perfect Turkey Club

Whether you’re working with freshly roasted, leftover-from-Thanksgiving turkey or simply sliced turkey meat from your neighborhood deli counter, there is no better use for it than being put into a turkey club sandwich. A club sandwich consists of layers of bread, tomatoes, lettuce, bacon and turkey, with a little bit of mayonnaise to hold it all together. It’s a great combination and a very impressive ...

A Thanksgiving Menu for Bacon Lovers

Turkey dinner with bacon stuffing

Thanksgiving is a holiday really has it all. A big roast, lots of side dishes and even more desserts. The one thing it doesn’t have (according to my father, amongst other people) is bacon. So, this year, I’m putting together a Thanksgiving menu that is infused with bacon. I know there is no shortage of bacon lovers out there, so feel free to infuse some ... Read More »

5 Great Pies for Thanksgiving

Not sure what to make for your Thanksgiving dessert? The options are almost endless because there is no wrong way to end a Thanksgiving meal. That being said, pie is traditional and I know at least a few people who would throw a minor fit if it wasn’t an option. I just love pie in general, so any reason to have pie is a good ...

Skeleton Chef and Cupcake Spider Jack o’ Lanterns

Cupcake Spider Pumpkin

I’m always inspired to bring a foodie element into my Halloween pumpkin carving and my pumpkins this year were no exception. My first creation was a Skeleton Chef, a skull with a little chef’s hat on top. I wish I had had a slightly larger pumpkin to give me a little more room for the hat, but the finished effect was still both cute and ... Read More »

Boneyard Brownies with Dark Chocolate Frosting

Boneyard Brownies

Perhaps it is a little over-the-top to call these brownies “Boneyard Brownies,” but, since we are getting close to Halloween, I think that adding a little bit of drama to what is otherwise a good – if undramatic – dessert is just fine. I turned this batch of brownies into boneyard brownies by topping them with dark chocolate frosting and lots of Scary Bones Sprinkles! ... Read More »
