A quick check-in and update…

So here it is… a BIG ole’ apology to my followers here at The-Kitchen-Guru. I felt the need to make a quick post about the recent lack of entries this past week.
I came down with a pretty nasty bug on Sunday [hence the lacking St. Patrick’s Day post and feast]. Still on the mend, I am currently on a pretty restricted diet [tastes mostly like cardboard, however I have a feeling cardboard may actually be more appealing] so hopefully everyone can understand and meet me back here in the hopefully very near future… My goal is to be back up and cooking by next week!

Thank you all again for understanding, and your continued support!

a feast for Sunday dinner…

The craving for something filling and ‘feast-like’ crossed my mind while meandering through the market… with winter in full effect this past week, I thought something reminiscent of a family gathering style would do wonders for a Sunday supper!
After picking up a fresh turkey breast, some carrots, fennel, celery and herbs… all that was left to do was start to prep up this soon to be masterpiece.
Slathered in a homemade buttery ‘sunscreen’ coating and rested on a bed of sliced carrots, onions, fennel and celery [all puréed together after cooking] it was going to be just a few hours of cooking until this meal would be ready for eatin’…
While cooking this ‘bird’, I thought some interesting cornbread muffins would be a great compliment instead of biscuits! These weren’t just your typical boring cornbread muffins, but one with a kick. One large jalapeño, some diced red onion, garlic, corn, red pepper and of course cornmeal all were stars in what would become a great treat!
Lastly, this meal would not be complete without some mashed, garlicky potatoes! Yukon gold potatoes were cooked to perfection and then mashed together with some butter, milk and of course salt and pepper.
Each bite brought me back to having the family here for the holidays and enjoying everyone’s company!

at a low simmer…
