Yes, you read that right and it isn’t a typo, this is a recipe from my Gammy, not Grammy. I am not sure why, but we called my grandmother ‘Gammy’. It may have been a carryover from my older cousins, I suppose! My mother used to make these turkey legs in the crock pot, and I found out recently that the sauce was a recipe from my grandmother. Unfortunately, my grandmother has not been around for many years, but she was a wonderful, warm, funny lady. I think I was about 12 when she died, but I have some really cool memories of her, mostly of the card games she used to play with my siblings and me! She especially loved to play Hearts with us.
My mother still has some of her recipes, and it is cool when I go back to my parents’ house for a visit and see the ones that she wrote out by hand. There is something so personal about those handwritten recipes. I guess we lose some of that now in the digital age, but the trade-off is that we can exchange recipes and share ideas so much more easily with all the technology!
In any case, these turkey legs are SOOOOOO good! I actually had a hard time getting them ready for the photo because the meat was so tender, the legs kept falling apart as I was trying to position them on the plate. I was down to my last two nice-looking legs, so I am glad I finally got a decent picture! But the best part is that this is one of the easiest recipes ever. I L-O-V-E easy recipes. Especially when the whole family enjoys them. I will be making these crock pot turkey legs again soon, for sure! (more…)
Hello! Welcome to this virtual potluck party for Christy Jordan at SouthernPlate.com! A bunch of us have gotten together to throw this surprise party for her. Have a seat, relax, and enjoy some of the great food that we have brought to the party!
Some of you may not know Christy, so here is a little background. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to not be able to walk, and how that would affect your life? I have thought about it and cannot even imagine the enormous impact it would have. How would I cope if it happened to me? I have no idea. But likely I would depend on lots of help and encouragement from family and friends!
Christy now knows all too well what it feels like to completely lose her mobility. (more…)

A big hello from me to you! I’m Anyonita and I blog over on Anyonita Nibbles where I’m concerned with producing nourishing, flavorful food! But before we get to the recipe, let me tell you a bit more about me: I’m an American expat living in Manchester, England with my husband (yes, he’s British) and our mischievous toddler, Callum. I’m a stay-at-home and full-time blogger as well as the owner and baker of an international online bakeshop, specializing in French macarons, The Mighty Macaron. I’m so excited to be guest posting here for Kristin and even more excited that I’m the first person to ever guest post on Dizzy Busy and Hungry! Okay, let’s get straight to the recipe!
Have I mentioned lately just how much I love cooking with a crock pot?
I was so sad a few months ago when the crock pot I had been using for years died on me. It was called a Chef’s Pot and it had been a wedding present from a wonderful friend. (more…)
Cranberry chicken ROCKS. It may not be the prettiest looking dish, but it is SO good!
The recipe for this cranberry chicken started with a tip from one of my neighbors. (more…)
Lots of people love soup. I am not really on that wagon, but kind of dallying behind it. I enjoy soup if someone else makes it, but I don’t usually have enough of a craving for it that I would make it myself. However, every once in a while, a soup comes along that makes me think to myself ‘I really should make some soup one of these days!’ (more…)
