Last post, I posted a family recipe for a hearty turkey and barley soup made with leftover roast turkey. This recipe also makes use of leftover roast turkey but in this case, the transformation turns the leftovers into delicious, individual portions of turkey and vegetable pot pies. These are very similar to the classic chicken pot pies and are comfort food at its best; you will actually want to have leftover turkey!Leftover turkey pot pies. | conifères & feuillus food blog Continue reading “turkey pot pies”

The good old days are now. -Tom Clancy

This hearty turkey and barley soup recipe comes from a time when life was slow, things were simple, nothing was wasted and everything was used. This philosophy is practiced in our home present day as it was done long ago in our ancestors’ homes. This soup is made with turkey meat leftover from a holiday roast turkey dinner and the base is turkey stock made using the remaining carcass of the turkey. Plus, it’s loaded with vegetables and barley for added flavour and texture. There really is no reason to complain about eating leftover turkey when there is such an easy and delicious alternative to use it up.turkey-barley-and-vegetable-soup-with-leftover-holiday-turkey Continue reading “turkey, barley and vegetable soup”

acadian potato and bread turkey stuffing with savory

acadian potato and bread stuffing with savory | conifères & feuillus

This recipe is buried deep within my husband’s Acadian roots. The star of this recipe is the lessor known (at least present day, here in North America) herb, savory. I suspect the use of savory comes via the European ancestry of the Acadian people. Historically, savory is one of the most important herbs in European cuisine and perhaps the first herb to make its way to the New World from Europe.
