Rinse and Repeat: Cuban Paninis

Working kind of sucks. Big time. It’s been all of one month at my new job and I already want to quit! My hours are all over the map which makes cooking on a regular basis a total pain in the pooper. Whenever time is in short supply I start looking for short cuts in […]

Super Simple Spicy Pulled Pork

I have no idea how the entire month of January seems to be almost over already! Where did all the time go? Oh… I know. We’ve been car shopping. What a major headache and time sucking event. Is there like some unwritten law that says that all car salesmen have to give you the creeps? […]

Chicken and Thyme Sausage Patties

Confession…I have absolutely no idea when Mother’s Day is this year.  (I’m very sorry Mom. I promise I’ll go and Google it as soon as I’m done here so I don’t miss it!)  I know it must be coming up quickly because the display at the checkout at Target the other day told me so. […]

Brown Sugar & Pecan Candied Bacon

One of my finals this term is to come up with a menu for a meal that serves at least four people.  It can be any meal, and has no budget restriction.  The recipes don’t have to be our own, and we don’t even have to make them. It’s a big exercise in determining food […]

Dutch Baby and Homemade Sausage Patties

Like I said the other day, I am always looking for new brunch ideas since my family has started a Sunday brunch tradition. I made the other two things that were part of Melissa D’Arabian’s brunch menu (that included those Provencal Tomatoes). It was Homemade Sausage Patties – which were SO easy and tasted 100 […]

Sausage and Potato Packet

I was flipping channels several years ago when I came across a cooking show on PBS called Fast Food My Way with this funny little french guy named Jacques Pepin (who used to cook with Julia Child). I thought what he was making looked pretty good, and I was surprised when on my next trip […]

Rinse and Repeat: Sausage Vegetable Sandwiches

I had one leftover Sausage Vegetable Packet from last night which I used to make a sandwich today, and it was SOOOO good. I used those little King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, and the sweetness of the roll complemented the sweetness of the onions perfectly. Mmm..I didn’t even bother to warm it up first, but you […]

Sausage Vegetable Packets

I found this great recipe where you throw all the ingredients together, throw it into packets and cook away. I love these kinds of recipes because it means easy clean up. I made a few changes to the original (because that’s the beauty of making it yourself – you get it exactly how you want […]
