Do you know what you find in a mole hole?? Mole-asses. 😀 What’s a molasses-doodle, you ask? It’s a wonderful marriage between a snickerdoodle and a chewy molasses cookie. Or Heaven. Because, man. So stinking good. This holiday has definitely been a lesson in paleo baking. Note to self: cookies are WAY different than cakes […]
Around the holidays, there are three dishes I like to prepare on certain days: turkey (smoked or roasted) for Thanksgiving, ham (citrus and honey glazed) for Christmas, and a rib roast for New Years Day. My traditional rib roast recipe is featured in The Heritage Cookbook, but last weekend I wanted to try out a […]
Stuffed turkey breast. A recipe from my cooking repertoire
Easter for me are the church bells ringing in the morning sun and a new Spring coat, the Tuscan Easter schiacciata from San Gimignano and the dark chocolate, the fresh pasta and the spring vegetables, the lamb and the blessed eggs. Easter is the beginning of the good season and windows wide open on rolling hills.
As Easter is approaching and we’re already working on our festive menu, I thought I’d share an easy and reliable roast, one of the protagonists of family lunches and cooking classes, my mum’s stuffed turkey breast.
When I lived with my parents, my bedroom was right above the kitchen. It could be reached from a steep staircase, which brought up the chatter of family and friends, the laughter of my parents watching TV after dinner, the first noises in the morning, and all the aromas of my mum’s cuisine. When I was lucky, it was the subtle grumbling of the moka on the stovetop to wake me up, followed immediately by the toasted smell of coffee that would tickle my nostrils when I was still under the blankets. Most of the time, though, it was the clatter of dishes, pots and pans, and mum who unloaded the dishwasher as first thing in the morning.
“Turkey, baked mac-and-cheese, and stuffing are all Thanksgiving dinner showstoppers. But real talk: unless you add some fiber to your plate, you’re not going to be feeling all that festive later. Thanksgiving salad doesn’t get the same level of accolades as other starring dishes, but it should. After all, a diet high in fiber is linked to a cornucopia of health benefits, including reduced inflammation, boosted metabolism, and a happy gut.
All the Thanksgiving salad recipes rounded up here are not only full of the nutrient, they’re also quite delicious, thank you very much. From traditional salads loaded with greens to ones made with other veggies such as sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts, to even ones served warm, here are 20 Thanksgiving salad recipes to choose from.”
