Stuffed Pepper Appetizers // Postponed Posts

This Friday is National Day of the Great American Pot Pie (9/23).  I’m having to postpone that post due my grandmother passing away this week.  I also won’t have the nutrition post this next weekend as I’m postponing it to be with family.


I was saving this recipe for another post, but I’ll share this appetizer recipe that I put together a few months ago so you are not without a recipe post.  It would be great for the upcoming holidays.  I hope you enjoy it.  I’ll be back soon.

half a package of follow your heart American shredded finely

a small bunch of green onions chopped finely

Comparison – Bread

This weeks post is about bread.  It is supposed to be a comparison, however, I never looked for another bread brand after I found this one.  Before I found Dave’s, I made my own in my bread machine – I’m sharing that recipe at the end of the post.

This really isn’t a comparison.  After finding Dave’s Killer Bread I didn’t look for any other brands to try.

This bread is light and delicious.  My favorite is the 21-whole grain & seeds (green packaging).  I’ve also tried a couple of the different flavors but always come back to the 21- whole grain & seed.  I’ve used this for toast, sandwiches and in recipes (Jamaican Patties).  In November I will be using it in dressing for Thanksgiving.

As I noted above, prior to finding Dave’s, I made my own bread utilizing the recipe below.  This recipe is one of the recipes from Seven Secrets Cookbook: Healthy Cuisine Your Family Will Love.  This is a delicious bread that cooks up well in the bread machine.  I’ve even ran the dough in the machine & baked it in the oven in a loaf pan.  I baked at 350* until it looked done & it sounded hollow when thumped.  I don’t have an exact time, sorry.  When I have a dinner party, this is my go to bread recipe.  There is nothing better than fresh, hot homemade bread with a meal.

Heirloom: Turkey Sandwich Spread

This month’s heirloom recipe is one of my mother’s.  This is one of the ways she uses up leftover Thanksgiving turkey.  Our family LOVE it!

Leftover Turkey


Liquid Smoke (found in the barbecue sauce isle in the store).

Finely chop or grind up the leftover turkey; add mayo to combine; season with 1/4 to 1 teaspoon or so of liquid smoke (add a small amount; taste test & see if you like the flavor, add a bit more until you are satisfied).  Spread on bread & enjoy!!

There are no specific measurements; it is to taste only.
