I love to reinvent my leftovers into new meals like this one. This sandwich combines thinly sliced roast turkey with gooey, melted Brie, roasted Brussels sprouts and cranberry mayo between sliced of crisp ciabatta bread.
This Italian-style appetizer combines charred octopus with a warm bean and cherry tomato salad tossed in a vinaigrette made from the rendered fat of the guanciale (an Italian cured meat from pork jowls).
This spiced sweet potato pie has a sky-high fluffy meringue topping that is baked until the peaks are golden brown. It is a twist on the classic holiday dish of serving mashed sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows.
Roasted pumpkin is combined with onions, diced tomatoes, honey and a bit of cinnamon for a creamy fall inspired pasta sauce. I add Gorgonzola, a veined blue cheese to add a salty “bite” and offset the sweetness of the pumpkin in the sauce.
