Sick Day Hot Toddy

Sick Day Hot Toddy by Kimberly

Sick Day Hot ToddyI haven't been sick enough to miss work since coming down with norovirus in 2006.

Turkey-Leek Pie (with vegetarian option) by Kimberly

Turkey-Leek Pie (with vegetarian option)In the winter, I often make this vegetarian leek-artichoke pie with excellent results. Today I was craving it, and I had some leeks, but I didn't have any artichoke hearts. So I dug around in the fridge and improvised, taking the opportunity to use some of the huge gallon bag of turkey I had…
