Crab Cake Sliders with Spicy Mayo

Posted on December 11th, 2013 by Leah Damron

Here’s a nifty new recipe to go along with the seafood theme of the current ad. If you’re in need of a holiday appetizer this coming weekend, these crab cakes are the perfect little number. I’m considering serving them for Christmas Eve dinner, alongside big bowls of my favorite New England Clam Chowder.

Baked Pasta with Turkey Meatballs

Posted on December 3rd, 2013 by Leah Damron

Okay, not to scare you off with more of the “T” word – we’re talking ground turkey here, and it doesn’t taste a thing in the world like Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, these little meatballs are so tasty, I wish I had made a double batch and stashed them away in the freezer. They’d be perfect stuffed in toasted rolls for subs, or tossed onto an impromptu pizza, or simply served over the obvious spaghetti. Maybe if you make this, you’ll have better forethought than I had. Double up on the meatballs, you won’t be sorry.

I hesitate to call this meal a casserole because of the bad rap such dishes get. I’ll just say it’s cozy, family friendly comfort food served up in one gooey, cheesy pan; I highly recommend it for picky toddlers, t’weens and teens.

Actually, I’d recommend it to anyone who’s just plain hungry.

Have a great week.

Enjoy Sendik's All Week …. or, Several Uses for a Leftover Bird

Posted on November 27th, 2013 by Leah Damron

Isn’t it awesome when a leftover anything can be repurposed into a new dish that tastes completely different than the original?  The following three recipes do just that.  Of course, I don’t expect to have nearly enough turkey to make all three dishes, but it’s always nice to have options, right? This Chicken & Dumplings Read more

Turkey Tortilla Stack

Posted on November 27th, 2013 by Leah Damron

If you’re a regular reader here at F-cubed, you’ll probably recognize this recipe from a couple of months ago. I thought I would put it out there again because a) it’s super yummy; b) lots of its ingredients are on sale; c) you might have a decent pile of turkey meat stockpiled after Thursday, and this is the perfect use for it. Tune in later in the week for three more recipes that will also make great use of your leftover bird.

Happy Thanksgiving. : )

Cream of Mushroom Soup

Posted on November 20th, 2013 by Leah Damron

I had a palm-thwack-to-forehead moment when deciding what to blog about for today. Sliced white mushrooms are on sale, which of course made me think of this soup, and I can hardly even fathom that I haven’t written on this one here before. I swear it’s one of the best things about cold weather. If you’re a mushroom fan, I promise you will have trouble not eating the entire kettle all by yourself.

Cinnamon Bun Popcorn

Posted on November 13th, 2013 by Leah Damron

If the current cold snap has you in the mood to immerse yourself in a cinnamon and white chocolate-covered baking project, then I’ve got the perfect little number for you today. I would love to speak in depth about it, but I was taught not to talk with my mouth full. So I’ll just say (in between bites, of course) that this popcorn is a hit wherever it goes (slumber parties, bake sales, or your family room), it makes a perfect hostess gift, and it would be a terrific addition to any Thanksgiving dessert buffet.
