STILL BOUNCING THOSE TURKEY BALLS

Nothing goes to waste in my kitchen. Didn’t have to cook  an iota from scratch. A few days ago, made some spicy turkey balls in a sweet and sour sauce. Though firm on the exterior, they carried a ‘melt in the mouth’ experience to the taste buds. As always, when I cook pasta, I make…

BEEF BONE SOUP TO STICK TO THE RIBS

It was beef all the way. It has been a long time since I’ve gone down this road. Got me a few pieces of beef bones and decided to make a pot of the mouth-watering and nutritious soup. Beef soup was loaded with pureed pumpkin that provided a rich and beautiful hue to my brew….
