Leftover Turkey Pot Pie with Cranberry Topping

SWITCH UP RECIPES INTO PIES   When I have tonnes of turkey leftovers after any holiday one of my favourite recipes to make is this creamy Turkey Pot Pie with a vibrant Cranberry topping. I don’t know many people who are able to eat an entire turkey at one dinner sitting which means turkey leftovers are either transformed or put in the freezer until it’s needed. If you’re anything like me and just cooked a large turkey for Christmas, finding new ways of using up the turkey leftovers is a must. I love to find ways to use my leftover turkey which includes such under-used ingredients such as homemade jams, jellies and chutney which are delicious. In the past I have transformed leftover turkey into turkey turnovers,  teriyaki turkey chunks, turkey chili, turkey curry, turkey soup and even turkey and pumpkin lasagna. My plan was to use the turkey leftovers and the cranberry sauce that’s been sitting in the refrigerator since Christmas dinner to make an all-in-one pot pie. Today I am going to show you how to make my buttery, flakey, Turkey Pot Pie mixed with a gorgeous bechamel sauce and topped with a delicious homemade Cranberry sauce. Once […]

Thanksgiving: Being thankful on a budget

  Time To Be Thankful; Not Broke   Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday of the year and it’s coming up right around the corner so I like to get planning in advance especially for the dinner and decorations. Thanksgiving is when I get to spend time with my family and friends eating lots of good food while celebrating what we are thankful for in our busy, everyday lives. We celebrate the people and things that bring us happiness, the loved ones who are always there with the support we need and the beauty of the world in which we live in and all it has to offer. Quality time spent with those who are important to us shouldn’t put a strain on our budgets nor should the process of organizing a large gathering so taking it step by step is crucial to the success of the holiday as is the participation of those you love. The cost of hosting a large gathering can get high pretty quick but with some holiday meal planning and preparation there are ways that you can keep the costs down and still enjoy a lovely meal that will create memories for years to come.

Crispy Fresh Spring Rolls

You may or not have seen my drool worthy Crispy Fresh Spring Roll pictures on Mr CBB’s “What’s for Dinner” Facebook post last week and they are as good as they look.  I thought I would  share this delicious easy spring roll recipe with all of you. The best part about my spring roll recipe is all the fresh ingredients that I use with it. We don’t go out to eat often as we find eating in vs eating out is much cheaper and it gives me the opportunity to create new meals for my family. When we make homemade Chinese food we always have leftovers in our house. Since meal planning is important to me I thought whilst shopping to buy Chinese Food ingredients that I would pick up some extra ingredients to make fresh spring rolls with the leftovers the next day. There are different types of spring rolls depending on what culture makes them. I’ve tried fresh spring rolls from our friends who are Filipino as well as Indian spring rolls, Vietnamese spring rolls, Thai spring rolls and they are all delicious little bundles of love all wrapped into a two-bite snack. There aren’t many Asian recipes that I don’t like but I […]
