"A lot of Thanksgiving days have been ruined by not carving the turkey in the kitchen."
-Kin Hubbaard, Writer

The refrigerator light goes on...

Waldorf salad is one of the ultimate comfort foods for me, and the combination with turkey is really wonderful. This is a great way to use leftover turkey after a holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Apple Types

There's no doubt that apples are good for you. A single apple has all of 70 calories but contains over 3 grams of fiber. Sweet and satisfying, snacking on apples is the perfect way to get healthy.

There are dozens of apple choices in the markets today. Alongside the traditional delicious and Granny Smiths more and more heirloom varieties are available. Below are some of the apples that I use in recipes on the Dr. Gourmet web site. Because of their ready availability I have generally used more common varieties because I know that most readers will be able to easily find them in the grocery. Apple Types
