Giant Italian Sandwich – For Home or To Go


I haven’t talked much about our To-Go meals this year. We are coming back into the time when we will be having more of our meals on the go. This past Friday we were headed Lansing for the Michigan State Science Olympiad so I decided it was time to pull out one of our favorite…

Leftover Corned Beef? Here are 5 Recipes to Try!


Now I very rarely have leftover corned beef because my family loves it so much. So, I pick up 3 to 5 extra to have on hand over the next few months just make some of these dishes such as the Irish Corned Beef Tacos with Guinness Sauce. Irish Corned Beef Tacos with Guinness Sauce…

Italian Stromboli


I had some frozen bread dough and needed something simple to make for dinner. My kids had a bit to eat at their choir rehearsal so they didn’t really want to eat a big meal and we had a large lunch so I was really not too hungry too. We needed something that was just…

Grilled Turkey Reubens


One meal that can help get dinner on the table quickly in my house is sandwiches. But, they have to be hearty sandwiches. My family will turn their noses up at anything that they can’t hold in two hands. It has to be packed full of good stuff and flavor for them to consider it…

Schnitzel Sandwiches


Sorry this is so late today. It has been incredibly fun and relaxing all at the same time. This is why I am late: The kids went to camp and then this: We are on vacation!!!! But, I knew the kids were leaving for camp and the car was packed. I knew dinner was going…

Reuben Style Hawaiian Slider Sandwiches


I was shopping for a few items the other day and I saw a package of the Kings Hawaiian Rolls my kids love so much on the shelf. But, then I saw hot dog and hamburger rolls next to them! Did you hear the heavens open up and start singing? We love these rolls and…

Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders on Hawaiian Rolls


A sure way to tell that summer is on the way in these parts? The fountains are back on! Of course it has been in the 40s and low 50s and I don’t think many people are going to be running through them very soon but they are on and that means tourists are on…

Meatball Subs


I am in a comfort food mode if you can’t see it by looking at my last few posts.  I seek out the creamy, savory, flavorful meals I remember from being a kid or that make me feel warm and good inside.  I know food can’t solve everything but right now, it is okay. Sometimes…

Seafood Salad


Let’s get this out-of-the-way first. I grew up with “imitation” crab meat. I don’t think I ever tasted real crab or lobster until I was well into my 20s. It was just what we had. Now, I know there is this thing about real crab versus imitation crab. I get it. Real crab is delicious….

Muffaletta


This would make an outstanding addition to a Super Bowl Party! It can be made the morning of the party or the night before and it’s ready to go when the party starts! My kids wanted to try “authentic” food from New Orleans.  Every so often my children decide they want to try food from…

Shrimp Po-Boys


We have been eating quite a bit of shrimp and fish lately. Still trying to stick to the mostly vegetarian diet while still eating fish and seafood, and dairy. I noticed today our milk consumption is slowly dropping as I am sure our cheese consumption will slowly start to go down to as we slowly…

Make Your Own Subs – What We Have When We Have No Time for Dinner
