Turkey Hash
By: Edna Hoffman
This was excellent! I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey and red potatoes. I did need to add a good bit of extra butter (and a little canola oil) to allow browning without burning. I served this topped with fried eggs for Sunday brunch.

Turkey Salad
By:Gloria Burris
This is good, but a little heavy on the mustard for my taste. It was a bit dry, so I added extra mayo. I would suggest mixing the mayo, mustard, vinegar, and sugar FIRST, and then add the mixture to the other ingredients. I enjoyed this on buttery round crackers (Ritz).

Cape Cod Biscuits
These were good, but the buiscuits turned out a little dry for my taste. I served them with extra cranberry sauce.

Cranberry Apple Crisp
By: Mary Bachman Foltz
This dessert is amazing. It's so quick and simple to throw together. I used Cameo apples which aren't very tart, but not overly sweet, either. They worked very well with the cranberries. I halved this recipe and baked in a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish for 35 minutes. This is delicious served warm over vanilla ice cream. Do NOT fear the cornflakes - they're perfect in this recipe - just the right amount of crunchy texture. Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe!

Yum Yum Cranberry Parfait
By: Jenny
This is very simple to throw together and tasty as well. I used leftover homemade cranberry compote. I was out of pie to serve this with, so I chose to break up ginger snaps and layer them with the cranberry mixture in a sundae glass.

These aren't Allrecipes recipes, but they were delicious!

Pumpkin Donuts
by Brook McLay
Delicious, and pretty darned easy to make - my first try at "from scratch" donuts - success!

Cranberry Margarita
by Sweet Life (Bonnie)
Intoxicatingly delicious! Watch the cranberry simple syrup. I turned my back and ended up with jelly. The second batch worked out fine.

Click for some entertainment. I love this song!

Thanks for dropping by!

Another beautiful array of food! I think some of these just went into my overloaded recipe box. Thanks, Pam.

I love this format! Being able to add non AR recipes is a bonus. Your turkey salad on the cracker looks like something in a magazine. Great job, Pam, Thanks.

You should be on the AR payroll...beautify done.

Several of your photos look like they belong in magazines.

You are an inspiration. I agree w/ BSM and luv, those 2 pics are amazing and both look so good!! (But they ALL look wonderful!!)

Thanks, everyone. I got lucky with some of the photos. I LOVE having a digital camera - I might take 15 shots and crop several before I get one that has the look I'm after. :)

Pam You have such beautiful pictures! I know it's your talent but what kind of camera do you use?
Nov. 29, 2011 12:34 pm
Karen - I use a Nikon D3000.
Nov. 29, 2011 3:16 pm
Is it easy to use? Sometimes I save your pictures to my desktop. Hope you don't mind.
Nov. 29, 2011 4:32 pm
No, I don't mind - Thanks! It is fairly easy to use. It's got an automatic setting that makes it basically a "point and shoot" camera. I'm still learning how to work it manually. Most of my food shots are taken on the close-up setting (that's how I got the bokeh from the Christmas lights in a few recent pictures.) Photography is a hobby of mine, but I can't find a class to take that isn't a college freshman course, so I'm on my own. I bought a "for dummies" book, but haven't read it yet, LOL.

Pam-your photos are exquiste, your animated clipart so jolly, and your song-rocked the house! I had to read your blog twice just because I was so in awe of your creative style. I love your Christmas Spirit and the way you share your photo tips. You are my idol. Also,the cranberry margarita looks divine. Aren't cranberries good for you! and a little Silver Patrone won't hurt! Just superb!

About Me
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.
