Italian Turkey Meatballs

Italian Turkey Meatballs
These Italian Turkey Meatballs are perfect for meal prep for the week! Truth be told I used to give ground turkey the stink eye.  We never ate ground turkey growing up so it was out of my wheelhouse and one of those foods I just told myself I didn’t like.  But I love these turkey meatballs!  Side note – one of my favorite pots is...

Turkey tetrazzini!

Growing up, my Dad used to make this dish.  However, one particular night, when my mom was traveling on business, he decided to make it for dinner.  One walk into the kitchen and I could not figure out what the smell was!  Me: “Hey Dad, what are you making?” Dad: “Turkey tetrazzini!” Me: “Um, what recipe did you use?” Dad: “the usual one that your...

Gobble, gobble

I finally cooked the turkey breast tonight.  I bought it over the weekend, and it kept on getting bumped to another day.  Just a simple dry rub on the grill.  It was bone in, so it took a bit longer AND I slightly overcooked it, but it was still tasty!
