She began to create her own cake recipes, gravitating toward “putting flavors at the forefront without overshadowing them with… Read story

Turkey stroganoff recipe gives blend of tangy flavor

January 15, 2020, 6:02am Food

Turkey stroganoff, an old Russian standby, can be made with turkey breast meat or leftover homemade cooked turkey. If you use cooked turkey, add about 2 cups at the end of the recipe.

My sister took me out for my first drink. It was great until we realized our bodies can’t handle alcohol. We both flushed crimson from head to toe, then her heart began to beat too rapidly.

I recently proclaimed a huge confession: I don’t get sake. I had attended sake tastings, sat through sake classes, watched sake documentaries.
