Bougie Girl In The Kitchen: Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Sometimes, I miss the cuisine of the Southwest. I have fond memories of purchasing a package of locally made tortilla wraps for under 3 bucks. At least twice a week, I made breakfast burritos wrapped in those delicious tortillas.

Earlier this year, I recall my heartbreak upon discovering that tortillas sold in the supermarkets here are upwards of 5 bucks package and they are not locally made.

Oh well.

Sometimes, ya gotta improvise. This recipe is actually what I like to refer to as reversible. You can either make it as a wrap or a salad. In addition, it is also very yummy, simple to make, and affordable to boot.

Here's what you'll need

1/2 cup of Cooked Ground Turkey seasoned with cracked pepper
1/4 cup of Sliced Green Olives
1/4 cup of Sliced Scallions
3 Lettuce Leaves
1/3 cup of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of Balsamic Vinegar


1. Pour the Extra Virgin Olive Oil into a small saucepan and place on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
2. Gently place the Scallions and Green Olives into the saucepan.
3. Pour the Balsamic Vinegar into the saucepan. Stir lightly.
4. Cook the Scallions and Green Olives for 5 to 7 minutes.
5. Place the cut and washed Lettuce Leaves on a paper towel to dry.
6. Carefully, arrange the Lettuce Leaves onto plate.
7. Scoop the already cooked Ground Turkey onto the Lettuce Leaves. (You can serve the Ground Turkey either lukewarm or refrigerated. Also note to use less of the Ground Turkey, if you decide to make wraps.)
8.Place the Scallions and the Green olives on top of the already cooked Ground Turkey,
9. Sprinkle the Mozzarella Cheese on top of everything.
10. Enjoy!

Bougie Girl In The Kitchen: Blueberry Pie

It's Christmas evening and I had a hankering for blueberry pie.


Last Christmas, I was living in Santa Fe, NM. This Christmas, finds me living in a completely different region of the country.

My first Christmas in the Northeast and it has been a whole lot of fun.

I am glad that I moved here.

Merry Christmas to all!
