Turkey and Sausage Gumbo

I always use our leftover Thanksgiving turkey to make Turkey and Sausage Gumbo. This recipe comes from my college roommate who was from New Orleans. It’s so delicious and always reminds me of the happy years I spent in Louisiana.

Turkey and Sausage Gumbo


Turkey Stock

1 turkey carcass (with a small amount of meat remaining)

12 cups of water

1 onion, unpeeled and quartered

1 stalk of celery cut into large pieces

1 large or 2 smaller cloves of garlic, unpeeled and quartered


Add all the above ingredients to a large stockpot and bring to a boil.

Simmer, covered, for 2-3 hours.

Strain stock. Throw away vegetables. Refrigerate stock. Skim fat from top of stock after the stock cools and fat solidifies. You should yield about 10 cups of turkey stock which will be an ingredient below.

Turkey and Sausage Gumbo


1/2 cup oil

1 cup white whole wheat flour

1 cup onion, finely chopped

1/3 cup celery, finely chopped

1/3 cup bell pepper, finely chopped (can use red, orange or yellow for color)

24 ounces (two 12-ounce packages) nitrite free Andouille sausage

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon basil

1/4 teaspoon thyme

1/4 teaspoon red pepper

2 cups cooked turkey, diced (both light and dark meat)

10 cups turkey stock

hot, steamed brown rice


Heat oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add flour. Stir. Turn heat down to medium-low. Continue to stir constantly until roux is milk chocolate color (this will take about 30 minutes). Remove from heat.

Add chopped onion, celery and bell pepper to the roux. Stir. Place mixture back on heat over medium-low heat and allow vegetables to cook for five minutes while stirring.

Slowly add turkey stock to roux mixture while stirring. When fully incorporated, add sausage and seasonings.

Bring to a boil and then simmer covered for 45 minutes. Stir, scraping the bottom of the pan to make sure there is no sticking, every few minutes.

Add diced turkey and stir. Simmer 5 more minutes or until turkey is heated through. Taste. Salt to taste.

Scoop rice into a bowl. Ladle gumbo over rice.

Dorco Women’s Shai Soft Touch 3+3 Razor

This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Dorco is a South Korean Beauty Brand. You can purchase them through their US website. Their women’s razors are comparable to US versions like Gillette or Schick but at substantial cost savings. This wouldn’t matter if they sold an inferior product.

Dorco sells a razor called a Shai Soft Touch 3+3 that is the best women’s razor I have EVER used. I’m not kidding. There are so many incredible aspects of this woman’s razor. Please allow me to name a few:

  1. No goop! I hate the tiny rectangular bars of soap/shaving cream that horizontally border many women’s luxury razors here in the US.
  2. It contains 6 blades (dual 3-blade cartridges) that pivot in the center which makes it so effective at removing hair and so comfortable to use.
  3. It grips your skin somehow without being irritating, meaning the razor’s contact with your skin is astounding!
  4. It works! Fast and non-irritating shave.

Head over here to try one, you will be thanking me I promise! Shop through Ebates and receive 4% cash back.

Interesting information about the company from their website:

Dorco’s product origins date back to 1955 when their small company was founded in South Korea. Their products are now sold in over 97 countries. By strategically aligning with Dorco, Dorco USA has been able to introduce the pinnacle of shaving innovation to the U.S. consumer marketplace, including the world’s first 6 blade shaving system.

Plan to Eat

This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

I’ve been a subscriber to Plan to Eat for the last several years. What I love about this particular meal planning service is that you are able to use your recipes, not someone else’s (which never works out for me).

When I’m browsing food blogs (too often) or see a recipe on Facebook that I want to try I simply click on my Plan to Eat Recipe Clipper. It uploads the recipe and photo to my personal recipe book page on the Plan to Eat website.

When recipes are uploaded into your personal recipe book, they are automatically filed into categories like appetizers, main course, slow cooker, soups and so on. These are standard default categories that you would typically find in a cookbook, or you can customize your own.

How I use Plan to Eat:

Before ordering my groceries online (through Walmart), I go to my recipe book and decide what I want to prepare for the following week. I click on the Queue button which is represented by a  “√” located on the lower left side of each recipe pic, and those recipes go into my queue.

I then click the Plan button, which takes me to a planner calendar where I decide which day I want to make each of my recipes. I just drag the recipe from my queue list located on the left side of the page to my planner calendar on the right side of the page. When I’ve finished this for the week, I click the Shop button.

This is where it gets good. Suddenly I have a shopping list all prepared for me! You can discard ingredients from your shopping list that you already have in your pantry. After doing that, you print your shopping list to take to the store or use as a guide when shopping online as I do. You can also export your shopping list via email to your smartphone.

And, it’s as easy as that! Head over here to give this excellent meal planning service a good look-see.  I could not recommend it more!

CeraVe PM Moisturizer

This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

There are facial moisturizers out in the marketplace at every price point. How do you choose? Personally, I think the majority of them are incredibly overpriced. CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion is a hidden gem, and available at the drug store.

This darling of a moisturizer is beloved by many beauty bloggers on YouTube. A couple of my favorites, HotandFlashy and Dr Drey, both use and adore it. Me too! CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion has some key ingredients that have put it in the spotlight such as niacinamide, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid to name a few.

The size container this moisturizer comes in is a perk as well. Most facial moisturizers are in 1-ounce tubes or bottles, CeraVe PM weighs in at three fluid ounces, what a value!

The next time you purchase a moisturizer, try this one out. You will be so happy you discovered it!


Fettucine Alfredo

There are many Fettuccine Alfredo recipes out there that try to be a “healthier” version of this classic. Some use low-fat cream cheese as an alternative ingredient to the cream or cut way back on the amount of butter added. I would say this is an indulgent dish. Serve it now and then, however when you do, prepare it correctly with both the butter and heavy cream.

Fettucine Alfredo


1 pound dried fettuccine pasta (can use whole wheat)

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup finely grated Parmesan Reggiano cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Fresh basil (for garnish)


Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until al dente (do not overcook as it will continue to cook in the sauce at the end).

While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until sauce has slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the cup of finely grated Parmesan Reggiano cheese. Stir until smooth.

Drain pasta in a colander reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Pour drained pasta into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of the hot pasta cooking water into drained fettuccine. Toss well until incorporated into the pasta.

Add Alfredo sauce and mix well.

Arrange the Fettuccine Alfredo on individual plates.

Garnish with the fresh basil.

Serve immediately.
