Welcome to my favorite family recipes, and some of my own discoveries. All of the recipes published here will be “tried and true”. I grew up with many of these recipes. My mom is a very good cook. We were a working class family, but we always had good food. Nothing fancy, but everything was good. I will also be sharing Mom’s best cake recipes.

Quick and Easy Turkey Tetrazzini
Tetrazzini was not
something I had growing up. In hindsight,
it seems I was a dormant pasta-holic, and no one else in the family was.In my first years out of my parents’ house, I
learned to prepare several pasta dishes, one of which was tetrazzini.I would spend hours slaving over the stove,
tending my spaghetti sauce, but tetrazzini is a relatively quick and easy dish
to prepare.Tetrazzini is traditionally
made with turkey, but chicken works just as well.
2 cans of cream soup
2 soup cans milk
1 med/large sweet onion,
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
Organic olive or coconut
2-3 cups chopped turkey or
1 lb of linguini, cooked
Grated Parmesan cheese
1.Sauté chopped onions in hot oil in large
skillet.Remove from pan and set aside.
2.Sweat mushrooms in oil, with the skillet very
hot.Remove from pan and set aside.
3.Empty soup, such as cream of chicken, cream
of mushroom, or one of each into skillet, and blend in milk.
4.Add onions, mushrooms, and turkey (or
chicken) and stir to combine.Heat over
medium heat to a low simmer.Stir as
needed to keep from sticking or scorching.
