TURKEY CUBANOS

TURKEY CUBANOS // Thanksgiving Leftovers // The Kitchy Kitchen
The perfect left over sandwich is a matter fraught with conflict. So many opinions, so many options.  I love the idea of going a little off book from the classic, so I played around with a Cuban twist for this day-after-Thanksgiving favorite.  The Cubano sandwich is one of the great sandwiches in history.  It’s a combination of roasted pork, ham, […]

RICE KRISPIES TREAT COOKIES

RICE KRISPIES TREAT COOKIES // The Kitchy Kitchen
One of my laziest, easiest tricks for creating a recipe, is to take two recipes, and smoosh them together. In today’s case, it’s ANZAC biscuits + Rice Krispies Treats. These are both nostalgic sweets for me, and it makes perfect sense to put them together. ANZAC biscuits are chewy with a toffee flavor, which comes from the golden syrup; and […]

TURKETTA

TURKETTA // The Kitchy Kitchen
Ok, so, I just want to emotionally prepare you for this: this is the best turkey I’ve ever had. It’s juicy beyond belief, crazy flavorful, and the skin – oh Lord the skin! – is insanely crispy.

PUMPKIN MELT AWAY PIE

PUMPKIN MELT AWAY PIE // The Kitchy Kitchen
Pumpkin pie is a classic for Thanksgiving, but I love the idea of a frozen dessert to cap off the evening.  It feels refreshing after a heavy meal, and the best thing? You can make it a week ahead of time and keep it in the freezer. It’s the perfect sneaky dessert if the Thanksgiving menu is stressing you out.  […]

Creamed corn is one of my family’s favorite sides. To balance the richness, I added poblanos and jalapeños, and for a super creamy texture some grits and cheese.

DOUBLE DECKER LEMON MERINGUE PIE

DOUBLE DECKER LEMON MERINGUE PIE // The Kitchy Kitchen
When it comes to dessert, more is more. I’m not talking about flavors, necessarily, who would want to get in the way of something as pristine and beautiful as a ripe piece of fruit? I’m referring to the visual.  Why do a two layer cake when a three layer cake would have more impact. If the peaches are insane right […]

JANE’S FAMOUS SAUSAGE STUFFING

JANE'S STUFFING // The Kitchy Kitchen
My mom’s stuffing is just so magical. It’s a classic stuffing with sausage and tons of herbs, and to add an exclamation point next to it, I added pears, sage, and brown butter.  It’s the perfect blend of savory and sweet, and the crunchy toasted top layer is my favorite. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS 1 pound breakfast sausage, removed from casing and […]
