Italian Sausage and Provolone Bread


This is one of those old-timey recipes that has been around forever. There are many variations on this that change up the meat, cheese, and some even add eggs to make a thicker filling.  This is our favorite version. Verdict: This is a great hearty bread that is perfect for a football party or a…

Chicken Caesar Hawaiian Roll Sliders


I love Hawaiian Roll sliders in all their forms. We have had them with corned beef, hamburgers, roast beef, and ham. We are still on a chicken and pork kick in our house so I needed something to make for dinner that was quick and easy. I have made something similar to this in the…

Ina Garten’s Caramelized Onion Dip (remade by me)


This picture is not a good at all but I was trying to snap a picture of this dip before it was devoured by my family. They were reaching around me trying to get me to put it down on the table because they all wanted a bite. This recipe was all over Pinterest, Facebook,…

Slow Cooker Swedish Meatballs


So these are not “authentic” Swedish meatballs.  But rather our simple version of them. These are amazing with homemade meatballs but sometimes you go with simple. Can’t find lingonberry jam to put on the side? You can use cranberry sauce or raspberry jam in a pinch. Verdict: We made this as an alternative to the…

Italian Sandwich Sliders (on Hawaiian Rolls)

Classic Hot Reuben Dip


Who doesn’t love a good Reuben? My family loves corned beef and I thought this would be a perfect dip for our little party. The best part was how simple it is to make. You can make it the night before your party, cover, and refrigerate until about 35-45 minutes before you are ready to…

Beer Battered Cheese Curd


  Every trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin we stop at a local cheese store. Very rarely does our order change. Three blocks of basil farmer’s cheese and three large bags of fresh cheese curd. If you have never had cheese curd when it is fresh it “squeaks” as you eat it. It slowly loses that sound…

Blue Cheese Waffle Fries


I wish this was a better picture but french fries are hard to get into an appetizing picture. I don’t know why we never thought of making Blue Cheese Waffle Fries before. The kids love blue cheese and waffle fries why wouldn’t we put them together. For Christmas Eve we make an appetizer buffet for…
