It's finally here. The day that I can debut pictures taken with my new camera! I'm still figuring out all the kinks. I'm not a still photographer. I was a videographer for years, using big & bulky Panasonic and DVC cameras...not small, beautiful DSLR's. I've also discovered I might be blinder than I realized---several pictures… Continue reading Southwestern Turkey Salad
I'm still up to my eyeballs in ham. I made that crockpot beer ham a few weeks ago and have turned it into three different dishes---but I still have ham leftover. And that was a small, 3 pound ham, too! If you made a ham for Thanksgiving, you're probably swimming in ham slices as well.… Continue reading Ham & Bow Tie Bake
A true clean-out-your-kitchen type meal. Use leftover chicken or turkey if you wish for this stir-fry that also includes roasted green beans, cabbage, carrots, and everyone's favorite: BACON.

I know they're not the most healthy thing for you ever, but when presented with the option of either eating a potato or… Continue reading Nicoise Potato Salad
Merry Christmas, y'all! I hope you're having a great Christmas day. Rob and I both had to work, but we've made the most of it. It definitely helps that are coworkers are like a second family to us, too. Working in television on a holidy is both mind-numbingly boring and crazed at the same time.… Continue reading Turkey Tortellini Tetrazzini
One of the best parts of the holidays is all the leftovers. You can eat for days on turkey, stuffing and potatoes. I've always held the cold turkey & mayonnaise sandwich near and dear to my heart. My mom is good at transforming leftovers. One of my fondest childhood foods was what she called "potato… Continue reading Thanksgiving Turkey Pot Pie
Curry is one of those things that's incredibly tasty when prepared by a restaurant, but really hard to make yourself. It's like chefs really hit the sweet spot of just the right amount of spice, sweetness, and tang. I've tried to make curries many times in the past and it has never turned out just right.… Continue reading Curried Chicken & Rice
