Leftover Recipes

At this time of year, I obviously mean Thanksgiving leftover recipes, but these recipes are good to keep in mind after any big meal with lots of leftovers. I’ve grouped these by type of leftover: leftover turkey, leftover ham, leftover rolls, leftover mashed potatoes (arguably the BEST leftover to have to “deal” with) and leftover […]

Pumpkin Coconut Soup

This was an experiment that worked out. Real, REAL good. I needed to use up some pumpkin puree after shooting my homemade pumpkin puree video. I remembered a recipe I made several years ago, a butternut squash and shrimp soup with a coconut milk base, that was AB FAB. And you know, pumpkin is so similar […]

Chorizo Sweet Potato Casserole

I was invited to a potluck last year, a short while before we were moving to Los Angeles. This meant that our pantry was almost bare, since I am of the “eat all the food before you move even if that means you eat Parmesan cheese rinds and rice for a week” school of thought. I […]

Sweet Potatoes vs Yams vs Taro vs Yuca

Mostly, I’m writing this post about the differences between sweet potatoes and yams and taro and yuca because I need to get it straight myself! You can watch the video on YouTube! Sweet Potatoes True (botanical) Sweet Potatoes are pictured below. Alternate names are kumara (New Zealand) camote (Mexico) and yam (USA). There are several […]

Corn Casserole

This is kind of like Jiffy corn casserole without the Jiffy. And I don’t mean it takes a long time. It’s still pretty fast! I was about 13 I think when my uncle dated a lady named Greta for a short while. She came to one Thanksgiving with our family and brought “Greta’s corn casserole”. […]

Orange Aioli

Rosemary-Garlic Sour Cream Dip

Rosemary-Garlic dip goes great with kettle chips or these portobello mushroom fries! This simple dip gets better the longer it sits (don’t let it go bad) so it’s great to make on a weekend and snack on during the week. Use it as a sandwich spread with some roast beef, or put it on a […]
