Rainbow Chard Quiche with Sausage Ricotta and Polenta

Serves 6

I think Rainbow Chard is one of the most beautiful plants. It is simply astounding how a plant can grow with such vibrant, contrasting leaves and stems; the puffiness makes them so adorable that if I were to grow them, I would use them to create floral arrangements. They look as if someone deliberately painted on their colors. I have wanted to try chard for the longest time…

Avocado and Walnut Cookies

Yield 30 Cookies

I made these cookies after hearing an advertisement on the radio. The ad said to try avocados instead of butter for baking, to reduce the fat, and to add good fat.  I came up with these cookies. I think they’re perfect with coffee or tea instead of milk.

More Turkey, Please

 Serves 2

When I cooked the 2012 No Fuss Roasted Turkey Breast, early, I had enough leftover turkey and gravy to share another recipe with you. If you cook that recipe, you will notice that you don’t need any additional salt; this recipe will not need any either. I think there is enough salt to last until next Thanksgiving :) I don't normally add too much salt to my recipes if they contain condiments. And, if it is a Butterball, it is usually salted.
