Members Reinvent Holiday Leftovers

Cherie Hammond's Sweet Potato Biscuits

Who says leftovers have to be boring?! In fact, I'm taking a stand and ringing in my New Year by giving a few Christmas leftovers a tasty makeover.

I've been noticing that many of you have been posting inventive ways to incorporate leftovers into new dishes. Cherie Hammond's Sweet Potato Biscuits, for example, are a great way to use up those leftover yams. Main courses are also getting a facelift - Check out Zinnia Martinez's Country Ham Dip and Patricia Mosso's Fast Breakfast Bake. Perhaps most decadent of all is Joan Williames' recipe for Eggnog Truffles. We rarely have a drop of eggnog to spare at the close of our family Christmas, but these little decadent bites are reason enough to set a bit aside.

On behalf of the entire Kitchen Crew, I'd like send out our very warmest wishes to each and every one of you. Here's to a peaceful, prosperous and delicious New Year...

After Thanksgiving (when my family gets together to enjoy turkey and ham with all the trimmings), I love making potato pancakes from leftover mashed taters. Also (of course) who can forget putting ham into most everything? I love it in potato casseroles, egg dishes, soups, and salads.

Thanks for trying to help. The steps you gave me were exactly what I had been doing and I have tried it again when I hit edit for my picture it does come up and say browse however the page looks all cloudy and when I click browse it doesn't do anything. If you or anyone else can come up with another idea the help would be wonderful.

Hi Mary, When I uploaded my picture I clicked "browse" and it opened my file browser. When I found my photo I doubled-click it then I was able to clicked "Upload." Hope this helps you.

Jan, A picture is worth a thousand words, but one isn't required for submission into our contest. You can add a photo anytime by editing your recipe and clicking on "Share a Photo." We can't wait to see pictures of your "Pressure cooker Vegetable Beef Soup" and "Cream of Broccoli Soup!"

I didn't see the note about attaching a picture of the soup for the soup contest. Could I still send the picture later?
