MAIN DISHES RECIPE: L E F T O V E R T U R K E Y P O T - P I E INGREDIENTS:

1 pre-made pie or pastry crust, purchased or your own recipe 1 cup sweet onion, chopped ¾ cup celery, chopped 2 jarred roasted red peppers, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons butter or margarine 1 /3 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1½ teaspoons Herbes de Provence

½ teaspoon smoked paprika 1½ cups chicken broth 1 cup whole milk 2½ cups leftover cooked turkey, chopped 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (I use peas, carrots and potatoes) 2 to 3 teaspoons dried sage (to taste) ¼ cup extra sharp white cheddar, finely grated 1 egg white, beaten

DIRECTIONS:

1.Preheat oven to 400°. 2.Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and paprika. Saute until fragrant. Add roasted red pepper and Herbes de Provence. Continue to saute until onion and celery are tender. 3. Stir in poultry seasoning and garlic powder. Sift flour over vegetable mixture, stirring constantly. 4.Add broth and milk all at once, and cook until thickened and bubbling. Stir in turkey and frozen vegetables. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour into 2 qt. casserole dish. 5.Over prepared crust, sprinkle dried sage rubbing between thumb and forefinger to break up. Sprinkle cheddar over crust. Press lightly into crust to adhere. Cut slits, or use a small cookie cutter to cut out shapes to allow steam to escape. 6.Place pastry over chicken mixture, turn edges under and press to edge of dish. Brush with egg white. If you cut out shapes, you can place them decoratively over the top, then brush them with egg white. Dust the whole crust very lightly with paprika for color. 7.Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving so that the insides thicken (about 10-15 minutes). This recipe also works with chicken breast in place of the turkey.

RECIPE:

INGREDIENTS:

Submitted in memory of my friend Melissa Walsh

1 can (15 oz.) 100% pure pumpkin ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground ginger ½ teaspoon cinnamon ¼ teaspoon allspice 2 large eggs + 2 yolks 1 cup canned evaporated milk 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk 1 9”pre-baked pie shell (use store-bought crust or make your own)

DIRECTIONS:

Be sure your crust is pre-baked and ready before you have the filling prepared. 1.Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 300°. 2.In a saucepan, heat pumpkin, salt and spices to blend flavors, about 5 minutes. 3.Add milks, cook until heated through. 4.Puree eggs and yolks in a blender. 5.With the blender running, add pumpkin filling - a spoonful at a time at first, then add more as the eggs heat up. Blend to form a silky texture. Pour warm filling into pre-baked pie shell. 6.As the pie bakes, the filling will “puff up” around the edges at first, and will continue into the center; the pie is done when all of the filling is “puffy” — 60 to 75 minutes. 7.Cool on a wire rack; filling will settle down as it cools. Serve with a generous dollop of whipped cream and enjoy!

CAKE

INGREDIENTS:

INGREDIENTS:

4 eggs ½ cup vegetable oil (not olive oil) 2 teaspoon nutmeg 1 small package vanilla instant pudding 1 box yellow cake mix 1 cup Sherry cooking wine

DIRECTIONS:

1.Preheat oven to 350°. 2.Prepare a greased and floured loaf pans. (This makes 2 large loaves.) 3.Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add Sherry and oil. Beat slowly until smooth. 4.Add all other ingredients. Pour into prepared pans. 5.Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until wooden toothpick comes out clean when inserted near center of loaf. Let cool. These freeze great. When cool, just wrap in plastic tightly. I then put them into freezer zip locks. Squeeze all the air out of bag before closing. Great for Christmas gifts…you can make beforehand. Decorate wrapped bread with ribbon, or tie on small Christmas decoration.

FROM THE KITCHEN OF:

Diane Johnson, Loveland

RECIPE: P E R F E C T P E A C H T A R T 1½ cup + 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour ¾ teaspoon kosher salt ¾ cup + 1 tablespoon sugar ¼ cup vegetable canola oil 2 tablespoons whole milk ½ teaspoon almond extract 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 to 5 small ripe peaches,pitted and thinly sliced (1/2” wide)

DIRECTIONS:

1.Preheat oven to 425°. 2.In mixing bowl, stir together 1½ cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon sugar. (Stirring enables the salt and sugar to sift the flour so don’t sift in advance.) 3.In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, milk and almond extract. Pour mixture into flour mixture and mix gently with a fork, just enough to dampen. 4.Transfer dough to 11” tart pan and use your hands to pat in the dough so that it covers the bottom of the pan, pushing up the sides to edge. Pat firmly, do not curl fingertips into dough. 5.In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the butter. If peaches are juicy, add 1 more tablespoon flour. Using fingers, pinch butter into dry ingredients until crumbly. 6.Starting on outside, arrange peaches overlapping in a circle over pastry. Fill in center in whatever pattern makes sense. 7.Sprinkle butter mixture over top. It will seem like a lot. 8.Bake 35 to 45 minutes until thick bubbles begin enveloping fruit and crust is brown. Cool on a rack - serve with whipping cream or ice cream. Very good! Also works with apples
