Osso Buco

It isn’t very often that I see some beef shanks in the grocery store where I buy my meat but I saw some the other day & picked up a couple of packages. Osso Buco was the what I wanted to cook with this meat, It was pretty expensive so I wanted to make sure…

I decided to try a new recipe for roasting a bone-in turkey breast. Checking the internet, there were so many recipes…how to choice? 

Canned tuna with Curry

This is delicious! I grew up eating tuna sandwiches on white bread with some Old Dutch plain potato chips. Absolute comfort food for me. Don’t get me wrong, I still love this. And…. the tuna doesn’t have anything added to it…just Kraft Mayonnaise.. BUT….. this tuna with curry is fantastic!
