Here’s a nifty new recipe to go along with the seafood theme of the current ad. If you’re in need of a holiday appetizer this coming weekend, these crab cakes are the perfect little number. I’m considering serving them for Christmas Eve dinner, alongside big bowls of my favorite New England Clam Chowder.
Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s edition of Enjoy Sendik’s All Week, where I have three awesome recipes to share, and not one of them has a single thing to do with turkey. As usual, the dishes shared here will make good use of ingredients featured in the current Sendik’s sale ad. And all three are kid tested and mom approved. Who’s hungry?
Okay, not to scare you off with more of the “T” word – we’re talking ground turkey here, and it doesn’t taste a thing in the world like Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, these little meatballs are so tasty, I wish I had made a double batch and stashed them away in the freezer. They’d be perfect stuffed in toasted rolls for subs, or tossed onto an impromptu pizza, or simply served over the obvious spaghetti. Maybe if you make this, you’ll have better forethought than I had. Double up on the meatballs, you won’t be sorry.
I hesitate to call this meal a casserole because of the bad rap such dishes get. I’ll just say it’s cozy, family friendly comfort food served up in one gooey, cheesy pan; I highly recommend it for picky toddlers, t’weens and teens.
Actually, I’d recommend it to anyone who’s just plain hungry.
Have a great week. Read the rest of this entry »
Isn’t it awesome when a leftover anything can be repurposed into a new dish that tastes completely different than the original? The following three recipes do just that. Of course, I don’t expect to have nearly enough turkey to make all three dishes, but it’s always nice to have options, right?
This Chicken & Dumplings is a DamFam Greatest Hit. We are all total freaks for any kind of dumpling, especially the kind that sit atop a yummy chicken stew. In this case, turkey. For this recipe, skip the part that calls for browning chicken thighs; just start with the veggie sauté step and add your cooked, shredded turkey in where it says to put the chicken back in the pan. This recipe is from Cooking Light and therefore isn’t the rich, creamy stew you might be expecting — good news for anyone who feels like they overdid it on the pie and mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving. Look for sale Emeril’s Chicken Stock; you probably already have the rest of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge. : )
Next, do yourself a big old favor and make a pan of this Homestyle Chicken & Rice. I’m not a huge casserole fan by any stretch but I absolutely adore this dish; it makes a ton, so feel free to divide it into two pans and freeze one for a rainy day. Skip the part of the recipe that calls for poaching chicken breasts; move on to the rice step and then add your turkey in where you’d put the shredded chicken back in the pot. Heavenly stuff right there, omg. Look for sale Freshlike Frozen Vegetables, Lundberg Rice, Emeril’s Chicken Stock, and Sargento Shredded Cheeses.
Finally, if you only have a handful or two of leftover turkey meat, try this Chicken & Black Bean Quesadilla — it’s a great way to stretch just a little bit of bird. I love these for a weekend lunch or a light dinner. Look for sale LaPreferida Flour Tortillas, Sargento Shredded Cheese, and Sendik’s Fresh Pico de Gallo and Guacamole. Yum.
Enjoy the Holiday weekend, everyone. See you here next week.
If you’re a regular reader here at F-cubed, you’ll probably recognize this recipe from a couple of months ago. I thought I would put it out there again because a) it’s super yummy; b) lots of its ingredients are on sale; c) you might have a decent pile of turkey meat stockpiled after Thursday, and this is the perfect use for it. Tune in later in the week for three more recipes that will also make great use of your leftover bird.
Happy Thanksgiving. : ) Read the rest of this entry »
Humor me while I immerse us all in everything pumpkin from now until the end of next weekend. Here are three fantastic recipes that make excellent use of this versatile autumn favorite: there’s one for breakfast, another for lunch or a light dinner, and a third for a decadent, holiday-worthy dessert. I’m looking forward to all of them, especially the pancakes. Oh, and the soup. Okay, I want the cake too. Grab some sale Libby’s Canned Pumpkin and let’s hit the kitchen.
I had a palm-thwack-to-forehead moment when deciding what to blog about for today. Sliced white mushrooms are on sale, which of course made me think of this soup, and I can hardly even fathom that I haven’t written on this one here before. I swear it’s one of the best things about cold weather. If you’re a mushroom fan, I promise you will have trouble not eating the entire kettle all by yourself.
You can easily tell by the ginormity of the current sale ad that Sendik’s stores are gearing up for Thanksgiving in a very big way. This is the perfect time to stock up on so many of the non-perishable ingredients you’ll want to have on hand for holiday side dishes and baking projects. I’ve become much more of a baker in the past couple of years, and I go through chocolate chips like nobody’s business. So I’ll be snapping up sale Nestle Morsels practically by the case, along with canned pumpkin (Shurfine or Libby’s). So get there ahead of me or you might come up empty handed on both. I’m just kidding, I promise to leave some for you, too.
If the current cold snap has you in the mood to immerse yourself in a cinnamon and white chocolate-covered baking project, then I’ve got the perfect little number for you today. I would love to speak in depth about it, but I was taught not to talk with my mouth full. So I’ll just say (in between bites, of course) that this popcorn is a hit wherever it goes (slumber parties, bake sales, or your family room), it makes a perfect hostess gift, and it would be a terrific addition to any Thanksgiving dessert buffet.

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of Enjoy Sendik’s All Week, where today I’m sharing a slow cooker recipe for Loaded Baked Potato Soup. I figure people are busy and could use an addition to their crock pot repertoire. Personally, I don’t have time to make dinner, as I’m spending the afternoon writing meaningful, heartfelt get well cards to each and every one of the injured Packers. If you’ve seen the lengthy list of fractured fellas, then you understand that’s a project that’s going to take a long, long time. Read the rest of this entry »
