Recipes from Jackie’s Happy Plate

Scraps Turkey Pot Pie

I know that a lot of people are concerned with food waste.  Here is one little way in which you can reduce it. Save your dough scraps and turn them into one of the recipes that I developed (and photographed ) for my latest article for Food Network, which is appropriately titled, “10 Ways to Use Leftover Pie Dough Scraps.”  Pictured above is my Scrap Pot Pie. Below are Pie Scrap Dessert Nachos and my Southern Style Scrap Turkey and Dumplings which are made entirely from Thanksgiving leftovers.

Bagel Improv Sundae

“The most creative and inventive snacks are the result of mastering the art of improv” – me quoting me! Read the article I wrote for The Kitchn. The improv snack pictured is a bagel sundae topped with hot fudge, caramel sauce, popcorn, Raisinettes, whipped cream, cherries and of course sprinkles. There are also links to two original recipes I developed for The Kitchn’s Snack Week.
