Five Spice Turkey Endive “Wraps”

by Anne Papina on February 24, 2014

It all began with a knock at the door and the delivery of a beautiful bouquet … of Belgian endive. A bunch of endive, still on the root and adorned with a red ribbon, is certainly a sight to behold, especially if you’re a foodie. This is how the California Endive Farms shows its appreciation […]

by Anne Papina on November 24, 2013

It seems hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away–are you ready? I’m not! You probably figure I’ve forgotten all about turkey day considering all the Christmas cookies I’ve been baking lately, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Ruby Port Cranberry Sauce #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on October 20, 2013

Who says cranberry sauce is just for the holidays? Around here, we love it on turkey sandwiches, so we roast turkey breast all year ’round, just for the sauce! When I saw that the Foodie Stuntman was getting all saucy this week (for #SundaySupper), I knew I wanted to bring this cranberry sauce–instead of water, […]

Heart Healthy Turkey Meatloaf

by Anne Papina on July 24, 2013

Seems we’ve been eating lots of rich foods lately, so I thought I’d change things up with a heart healthy meal. Now, some might figure low-sodium + low-fat = blah.

Heart Healthy Stuffed Peppers

by Anne Papina on January 27, 2013

I have a confession to make. You’d never know from the calorie laden recipes here, but I’m a Dr. Oz fan. It’s true. I love watching the show, and he inspires me to adopt healthier habits, even if I don’t always follow through. I know, I know, the road to Hell is paved with good […]

Turkey and Black Bean Enchiladas #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on November 18, 2012

In just a few short days, we’ll be stuffed to the gills and unable to even look at another bite of food. I know; I’ve been there. Many times, in fact. One of the great joys of Thanksgiving (besides the time spent with family and friends) is the food, especially the leftovers. This week’s #SundaySupper […]

Thanksgiving Dinner for Two

by Anne Papina on November 11, 2012

With fall being my favorite season, it’s only natural that Thanksgiving would be my favorite holiday, no? I’m not in it just for the food, I swear! But my family does put out an impressive spread. The turkey, of course, is the centerpiece of the meal. There will be garlic mashed potatoes, pan gravy, fresh […]
