As I sat on the couch this morning trying to figure out what to make for dinner, I got up and looked in the freezer to see what kind of meat I should thaw out... I feel like I'm always cooking chicken breasts, so I grabbed the ground turkey and decided I would make something with this.
Stroganoff is one of my favorites and Jack loves the Hamburger Helper one, so I decided to make stroganoff from scratch. It was amazing. I made homemade noodles to go with it that were even more delicious. I could've just eaten a plate of noodles they were so good.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup chopped yellow onion
4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1½ pounds ground turkey
2 Tb red wine
¾ cup beef broth
¾ cup milk
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1 pound egg noodles, boxed or homemade: (Homemade Egg Noodle Recipe)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup sour cream
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2½ teaspoons seasoned salt
¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
In a large, heavy saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the turkey, breaking it up with a spoon, and cook until browned. Add the special seasoning ingredients and stir to thoroughly combine. Stir in the broth, milk and mustard. Bring to a boil over high heat then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes, until nicely thickened.
While the sauce is simmering, cook the egg noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water according to package directions until al dente. Drain, return noodles to the pan, and toss with the butter so the noodles won’t stick together. Cover loosely to keep warm.
Stir the sour cream into the sauce and heat through. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add to the warm buttered egg noodles and toss to coat. Served garnished with a dollop of sour cream and fresh chives.

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy.

After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
