I’ve done a few of these Thanksgiving round up posts in the past and was going to skip it this year until I found myself googling “slow cooker Thanksgiving side dishes” last night. Jim has an office lunch tomorrow and they don’t have much in the way of a kitchen for cooking or reheating. I […]

It’s finally happened. We’ve lost our ever-loving spatchcocking minds and have flattened Thanksgiving dinner! If you’ve been around this website for awhile, this should come as no big surprise. Remember last fall when we were spatchcocking chickens left and right for Buttermilk Roast Chicken and my favorite Smothered Chicken? Well, we proved then that spatchcocking, which is flattening […]

Mexican Stuffed Peppers  – One of our favorite weeknight dinners. Colorful and sweet bell peppers hold a variety of savory and spicy ingredients which you can customize to your own tastes, preferences, and what you have on hand. I was never a big fan of traditional stuffed peppers because cooked green peppers tend to have […]

Cream of Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. Otherwise known as The State Soup of Minnesota! Do they have things like State Soups as we do State Songs and State Birds? If not, we should. I’ve already decided that Beer Cheese Soup is the official State Soup of Wisconsin. Since both the recipe for Steak Soup and I hail from […]

Turkey & Zucchini Burgers. Oh, with a bonus of creamy Tzatziki Sauce. SO good! This recipe comes from the Jerusalem Cookbook that was all the rage (with good reason) last year.

I’m just going to say it. These are the best dumplings I’ve ever made. These are also the only dumplings I’ve ever made. Why? Because dumplings are usually gloppy balls of flavorless dough and I don’t do gloppy. But I’ve always liked the IDEA of dumplings. I recently saw cornmeal dumplings on a restaurant menu […]

Let’s give thanks for a Thanksgiving that doesn’t need to totally stress us out. I love Thanksgiving dinner with the big bird and all the sides. It reminds me of going to my grandma’s house in Kansas City where she would look at the table FULL of food and fret, “maybe I need to put […]

These Green Chile Turkey Burgers were something of a revelation to me. The revelation that turkey burgers do NOT have to be dry, lifeless, hockey pucks on a bun. Hooray! The picture doesn’t do these justice. These turkey burgers are juicy. The green chiles not only provide great flavor but they give much needed moisture […]

By now my Meatloaf “issues” have been pretty thoroughly discussed and happily conquered here at Idiot’s Kitchen. So I’m not sure exactly why my husband was so surprised to find this Turkey Meatloaf with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Feta Cheese on the table. This is a nice balance between light and hearty. Light because instead of […]
