• Love Turkey, Hate Waste

    November 10, 2016 admin

    Ok so I’m a little early deciding to post a few recipes to use your left over turkey but I have to admit to loving Christmas, although it might just be getting the chance to see all those twinkling lights shimmer in the darkness on those wintery dark days.  In any case I thought it was time to share some of my recipes which I use when I don’t want to eat any more turkey or ham.   Turkey &…

    It is said that Marie-Antoinnette introduced the croissant to France!  I’m not sure about that but I do know the croissant first appeared in the French dictionary in 1863!
