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 »
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 »
With today’s delivery to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin of 61,000 pounds of food and more than $38,000, Sendik’s customers have now donated more than one million meals to the local food bank. For the past six years, the family owned grocer has partnered with Feeding America during the fall months in the fight against hunger. In the months of August, September and October, customers purchased Mac & Cheese, rounded up their totals and scooped up Backpack Buddies to help feed the hungry throughout Eastern Wisconsin.
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.
Locally owned grocer expands into Lake Country
Expanding its service into the Lake Country area, Balistreri owned and operated Sendik’s Food Markets today announced it will open a store in Hartland next year. The store will be located at 600 Hartbrook Drive, on the northwest corner of Hartbrook Drive and Merton Avenue, just north of Hwy 16. It will be the twelfth location for the family-owned grocer based in Whitefish Bay and recognized by its famous “Red Bag.”
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.

I cannot even tell you the number of times I fell back on this recipe during track season last spring. Have you ever been to a track meet? They’re kind of like swim meets except on dry land. There are approximately 12,000 events. And your own offspring is likely to compete in oh, let’s say … two. It’s awesome when this child becomes adept at narrowing down the window of time in which she will be competing, because then you’re able to plan your arrival to the asphalt venue accordingly. Not that it’s not 100% awesome to watch other people’s children run like they stole something. Because it is. For real. Read the rest of this entry »
In case you’re just sitting around, pondering what to make for dinner next Monday night (and who doesn’t ponder a meal that’s almost a week away?), I’ve got your main course covered. Yes, indeed I do. Here’s what needs to happen: sometime this coming Sunday, you’re either going to go yourself or send an able-bodied shopper who lives with you to the nearest Sendik’s. That’s where Pork Shoulder Roasts will be on sale for $1.99 a pound. ONE DOLLAR AND NINETY NINE CENTS A POUND. Apologies for the shouty caps but I really just want to drive the point home: you will be able to make these fantastic tacos with a pork roast that’ll run you roughly six bucks and change. Maybe seven if you want a little extra. Read the rest of this entry »
You might recall last Tuesday’s blog post where I was mourning the end of cherry season and soothing my sadness by way of apple consumption. While apple therapy continues to be helpful, I’ve added tons of pumpkin to my fall cooking regimen as well. I cook with canned pumpkin all the time when autumn rolls around – not just for the usual breads, pies and muffins, but also for this soup, which I consider to be a DamFam Greatest Hit.
Over the years I’ve morphed the original recipe into what I’m sharing with you below. This recipe is excellent as a light lunch, and lovely for a dinner party first course. With the crunchy sage croutons, I would also qualify it as perfectly kid friendly. I hope you like it too. Read the rest of this entry »
It took me a month or so of agonizing and painful withdrawal, but I am finally over the sad and sorry fact that cherries have gone out of season. I recognize that there are worse things in life to be hooked on (Breaking Bad, anyone?), but I seriously had a four pound per week Hood River Cherry thing going there for a while this summer. Four pounds a week might be a conservative estimate, actually. I was pretty bummed by the onset of fall when the cherries disappeared for good until next July. Read the rest of this entry »
