Paleo Turkey Tetrazzini

My favorite turkey leftover recipe in the world! Turkey Tetrazzini is NOT Italian. Yes, it was invented by the famous soprano Luisa Tetrazzini. She asked for creamed turkey over spaghetti with Parmeggiano Reggiano, and she got it! Like a true diva, she lived at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, where the chef prepared all her meals. Madame Tetrazzini was 100% Italian, and a feisty lady too! Read a bit of her story below. This holiday, I am CRAVING Turkey Tetrazzini, and I wanted it to be ...

Watercress is especially high in anti-oxidants and Vitamin K (that’s the one most of us are lacking). Dr. Mercola says watercress contains over 15 essential vitamins and ...

On a trip to Paris years ago, I ordered a simple bowl of carrot soup, Potage Crécy, in a fine restaurant. The first bite was so delicious, I nearly fell out of my chair with joy.
