Melissa's Easy Leftovers

Melissa d'Arabian, host of Ten Dollar Dinners, makes the most of Thanksgiving leftovers.


Busy mom turned Food Network star Melissa d'Arabian goes to her husband for help with lots of things -- but not Turkey Day. "He's French, so I'm the boss of all things Thanksgiving," she says. After the feast with Philippe and their four daughters, Melissa always has leftovers, and her frugal instincts won't let her waste any of them. She turns out turkey noodles, cranberry crostini, sweet-potato muffins, you name it. "You have to fool your palate into thinking you're eating something new." she says.
