Eggs & Avo “Everything” Sandwich

Avo toast is all the rage lately. Quite frankly it’s delicious if done properly. That means 1) finding ripe avocados and then 2) adding some flavor to make it stand out–whether with salt & cayenne pepper or my new favorite “everything but bagel” seasoning from Trader Joes. I love making breakfast and have come up…

Sausage & Pepper Grinders

Sausage and peppers is an Italian classic. It’s easy to make and can be a meal on it’s own or on fresh Italian bread for a delicious sandwich. The catch is that this meal is all about getting the right ingredients. Go to an Italian deli and get their store made sausage, mozzarella and fresh…

Make Your Own BLT Bar

Sometimes simple is better. When trying to decide what to make for a girls lunch last weekend we decided BLT’s were the perfect pool side treat! The key when making something so simple is having the freshest and best ingredients. When you set up your bar make sure you put it in logical order so…

French Toast Sandwich with Sauteed Bananas and Peanut Butter

This Saturday morning when I walked into the kitchen I saw bananas and bread. I got inspired to do something different. I’m more of an egg and cheese sandwich kind of girl but Kyle loves peanut butter and french toast so I got to experimenting. This was super easy to make and a nice weekend…

Mom’s Perfectly Crispy Chicken Cutlets

Growing up chicken cutlets were a delicious treat for dinner in our house as mom didn’t fry many things. This year for her birthday, Mom had a craving so we made her perfect chicken cutlets and served them in the perfect chicken cutlet sandwich. You can use this chicken to make chicken parmesan, you can…

Adult Grilled Cheese

They call it grilled cheese for a reason…. It should be made on a grill. My sister came over to eat dinner with us on a beautiful Friday night and we decided to grill on the back deck. After debating several options we thought it would be fun to make adult versions of the childhood…

Carolina Style Pulled Pork in the Crock Pot

I am not from the south, I don’t have a smoker on the back deck of my 3rd story condo, and I can’t say I’ve ever bought a pork butt before.  So, I’m not going to try to pretend like this is the best pulled pork anyone from the south (or New England for that…

Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

When I saw a package of large and perfect portobello mushrooms in the grocery store this morning, I had to buy them. Immediately I thought about a pesto mayo on a delicious fresh bun.  A big juicy grilled portobello can be just as delicious as a burger if you do it right.  This sandwich is tender, crunchy…

Italian Combo

There’s a lot of different ways to make an Italian Combo.  Personally, I think the best one ever made is at Jersey Mike’s (now Mikee’s Place) in Southbury, CT.   You have to get everything on it and add hot peppers and bacon.  It’s the ultimate sandwich mostly because their bread is fresh and delicious….
