Pad Thai Spaghetti & Meatballs

Pad Thai Spaghetti & Meatballs

I’ve really wanted to try my hand at pad thai for awhile now, but I decided to put my own twist on the dish inspired by spaghetti and meatballs. For a basic pad thai that’s easy and doesn’t require fish sauce (which we couldn’t find), just leave off the meatballs. Or just serve the meatballs…

Turkey Cranberry & Brie Panini

Turkey Cranberry & Brie Panini

This may not be the most the most creative use of Thanksgiving leftovers— paninis are no cranchiladas that’s for sure. But I’m sensing a new Thanksgiving tradition because this has got be one of the best paninis we’ve made, which I think makes it deserving of its own writeup. I think the key ingredient is the brie—…

Spaghetti (Squash) & Turkey Meatballs

Spaghetti (Squash) & Turkey Meatballs

How hard it it to find spaghetti squash? Apparently really difficult around us. Whole Foods hasn’t ever had them when I’ve looked, and Amazon Fresh can’t seem to keep them in stock when they are delivering to me. But I finally got my hands one, and decided to make low-carb spaghetti and turkey meatballs with…

Buffalo Turkey Lasagna

Buffalo Turkey Lasagna

Clearly Dustin and I love the flavors of buffalo wings (see these burgers and this dip), so it was only a matter of time before we incorporated those flavors into something else, say lasagna. I am astounded at no-boil lasagna noodles. They allow your dish to come together so much faster than having to wait for…

{Leftover} Turkey Pot Pie

{Leftover} Turkey Pot Pie

Dustin’s not a huge pot pie fan. I am. So guess what else we did with our leftover turkey? Made a big turkey pot pie! All kidding aside, I know this wasn’t Dustin’s favorite meal I’ve made for him, but I think he enjoyed it more than most pot pies. We used his mom’s leftover…

Turkey Cranchiladas

Turkey Cranchiladas

Dustin knew we were making enchiladas with our leftover turkey. However, he didn’t realize that we’d also be incorporating our leftover cranberry sauce into the enchiladas to make Turkey Cranchiladas (love the name). Never has Dustin been more unsure of a dish I wanted to make, but he stuck it out. Upon smelling the cranberry…

Caramelized Balsamic Onion, Goat Cheese & (Turkey) Bacon Pizza

Caramelized Balsamic Onion, Goat Cheese & (Turkey) Bacon Pizza

I am absolutely infatuated with the flavor combination of goat cheese, bacon, and caramelized balsamic onions. Somewhere from the depths of imagination, I came up with pizza. I’m not sure where it came from or why, but all of the sudden I just had to have this pizza on my plate. Now! I began working…

Tamale Pie

Tamale Pie

So this might not be the prettiest dish in the world, but it pretty accurately captures the flavors of the tamale, at least well enough until I find some corn husks and bust out the masa harina. Basically you begin by cooking up a delicious filling. Below is ground turkey spiced with Mexican seasoning, corn,…

Hawaiian Patty Melt

Hawaiian Patty Melt

After the success of the pineapple and chicken teriyaki quesadillas, I wanted to put pineapple on more savory dishes like this Hawaiian patty melt. You’ll notice that there aren’t grill marks on the pineapple because we put them in an aluminum foil pouch as to not get meat juices all over them! These originally didn’t…

Turkey Shepherd’s Pie with Lightened Up Mashed Potatoes

Turkey Shepherd’s Pie with Lightened Up Mashed Potatoes

I believe I have done the impossible. I got Dustin to eat cauliflower and like it! Actually I tricked him into trying by hiding the cauliflower amidst mashed potatoes. He took one bite, said they were really good, referencing Joël Robuchon, and then I told him there was cauliflower in it. You should have seen the…
