Pixy Stix

“The classic sweet and sour powdered candy grows up in this cocktail tribute.  Originated in the 1930's as a drink mix, it was soon discovered that kids were eating this tasty sour powder straight from the package.  Before long, it was being packaged in straws and being sold as "Pixy Stix".  Our cocktail takes a few sweet and sour ingredients, and delivers a drink that is sure to please most any palate.  We hope that you'll enjoy our featured cocktail... Pixy Stix.  Cheers!” hamptonroadshappyhour

Veal Chops with Mint-Cherry Pan Sauce

Veal Chops with Mint-Cherry Pan Sauce
Recipe from: thehautemeal

Veal Chops with Mint-Cherry Pan Sauce

“The veal chops are tender and juicy, but the mint and cherry sauce is the real starStephanie


2 veal blade steaks (1 per person)

1 tbsp olive oil

Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper

1/3 cup red wine

1/3 cup beef stock

1/4 cup cherry preserves

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp unsalted butter

2 tbsp chopped fresh mint


Take the chops out of the refrigerator about an hour before you plan on cooking them and 
prep them: sprinkle both sides generously with salt and pepper and leave the chops out to 
come to room temperature.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.

Add the chops and let them cook undisturbed for 3 to 4 minutes, until nicely browned.

Turn the chops and repeat on the other side.

Work in batches if necessary, but don’t crowd the pan.

When finished, remove the chops from the pan and keep warm.

Add the wine and stock to the pan to deglaze, scraping up the crispy browned bits on the 
bottom of the pan.

Bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by half.

Add the preserves and vinegar, and stir until the preserves have melted.

Taste for salt and pepper, then remove from the heat and stir in the mint and butter.

Serve immediately, with a little (or a lot) of the sauce over each chop.

Turkey, Leek, and Bacon Pot Pie

Turkey, Leek, and Bacon Pot Pie
Recipe from: thehautemeal

Turkey, Leek, and Bacon Pot Pie

“Tender turkey breast, vegetables, and bacon in savory gravy, wrapped in flaky pastry. This is perfect comfort food!” Stephanie



3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1¼ cup butter-flavor shortening

1 egg, beaten

1 tbsp white vinegar

4 tbsp cold water


4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2" pieces

2 leeks, washed and sliced

1½lbs turkey tenderloin

2 cups turkey stock (or chicken stock)

1 medium carrot

1 stalk celery

1 tbsp fresh thyme

1 tsp Worcestershire

2 tbsp dry vermouth

¼ cup unsalted butter

½ cup all-purpose flour

1½ cups milk (low fat is fine)

Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper


Place a pizza stone on the lowest rack in the oven (optional).

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

For the crust:

In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt.

Cut in the shortening.

In a small bowl, combine the egg, vinegar, and water.

Drizzle the wet mixture into the flour mixture, stirring together with a fork until fully 

Pat into a ball and cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

Refrigerate until ready to roll out.

For the filling:

In a small Dutch oven, add the turkey tenderloin and stock or broth, and cover.

Bring to a simmer over medium heat, and cook until the turkey is just cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Place the tenderloins in a large bowl, and pour the cooking liquid into a separate small bowl 
or measuring cup.

Using two forks, shred the turkey into bite-size pieces (you can do this while the vegetables 
are cooking).

Increase the heat to medium-high and add the bacon to the pot.

Cook the bacon until it's nearly crisp and has rendered most of its fat, stirring often, then 
add the carrots and celery.

Continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes, and then add the leeks and thyme to the pot.

Continue to sauté the vegetables in the bacon drippings until the leeks are wilted and 
beginning to brown.

Add the Worcestershire and vermouth, scraping up any fond from the bottom of the pot, and continue to cook until the liquid has evaporated, just a minute or two.

Add the vegetables to the bowl with the turkey.

Over medium heat, melt the butter and stir in the flour.

Let the mixture cook for about a minute, toasting it lightly, then add the reserved turkey 
stock and milk, whisking constantly to keep it smooth and prevent lumps.

Bring the mixture to a bubble, letting it thicken completely, then fold in the turkey and 

Taste for seasoning, and add salt and fresh pepper as needed.

Remove from the heat and set aside.

Divide the prepared pie dough into two even balls, and roll out one ball of dough to line a 9" 
pie pan.

Line the pie pan, allowing the dough to fit into the bottom and over the sides.

Fill the crust with the turkey filling, and then roll out the remaining dough to a 9" circle and place over the top.

Trim the edges, then press together, crimping with a fork.

Bake on top of the pizza stone on the bottom rack of the oven until golden brown and 
bubbling, about 35 to 45 minutes.

If the edges of the crust start to brown too much, cover them with foil.

Allow the pie to rest on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

The filling will set as the pie cools.


You can make the crust in advance and keep it refrigerated until you're ready to roll it out.

Refrigerating it can also make it a little easier to work with.

Baking the pie on a pizza stone provides even, direct heat to the bottom of the pie, and 
helps keep the crust from getting soggy.
