That turkey carcass leftover from your holiday meal is treasure, not trash! The frame from your turkey (or chicken) makes the most delicious broth you have ever tasted. Simply put the bones (and skin if you have any) into your slow cooker and cover it with water. Let it simmer overnight and in the morning you will have the base for a delicious soup.
Calzones are easy to make and a nice change from pizza. This particular recipe is from our Busy Mom Menu. The bread dough makes a delicious crust for the calzone and using frozen bread dough saves time. If you’d like a healthier version and have a wheat grinder, you could make your own bread dough from freshly ground whole wheat.
