French Dip Sandwiches

We have found new favorite Sunday dinner - they are super easy and so delish!

French Dip Sandwiches
1 chuck roast
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1 can beef broth
salt & pepper
garlic powder

Submarine rolls

In a large skillet melt butter, season roast with salt & pepper and garlic powder, brown both sides of the roast in the butter. 

Move roast to crock pot and top with onion soup and beef broth.

Cook for about 6-7 hours on low (I haven't ever over cooked this).

Shred meat and reserve au jus for dipping.

Butter and broil rolls. Add meat and cheese (meat on one side cheese on the other) and broil again until cheese is bubbly and browning.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

The other night I didn't have all the ingredients to make my usual go-to Chocolate Chip Cookies, so I had to find a different recipe (as cookies were a must on this given night). I found this new recipe and I ended up liking them more than my own recipe...

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups + 2 tbsp flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ sticks butter, melted and cooled
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

Set oven to 325 F. 

Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Beat together butter and sugars for 1 minute at medium speed. Add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium-low for 30 seconds. Add dry ingredients and mix on low for 30 seconds. Stir in chocolate chips.

Divide dough into 1/4 cup size balls. Pull apart dough into equal halves with fingers then place back together so that jagged side faces top and smooth side is facing down. This creates the bakery look on top.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets. Take out when edges are hardening but centers still look puffy and soft, cool on pan.

Makes about 18 cookies

Fluffy French Toast with Buttermilk Syrup

I stole this recipe from Aubry and it has quickly become one of our favorite breakfasts! We devour it and I always want more..

Fluffy French Toast

2 Eggs
2 ½ Tbls sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp vanilla
1 ½ cups milk
1 cup flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder

12 slices French bread

 Mix eggs, salt, sugar, vanilla, and milk until well blended. Slowly add flour and baking powder. Mix until smooth. Dip bread slices into mixture and allow excess to drip off. Grill on med high grill 1 to 1 ½ minutes on each side.

Buttermilk Syrup

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp baking soda

 In a saucepan, heat and stir butter, sugar, and buttermilk until boiling. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda.

Pizza Monday's

We usually make pizza on Monday's - that was until Monday became Cam's late night at school. So now it is just whenever I don't have anything planned for dinner as I always have pizza stuff around.

Pizza Dough

1 tbls yeast
1 tsp sugar
3/4 cup water
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbls olive oil

garlic salt

Preheat oven to 475 with pizza stone (opt)

Mix together yeast, sugar, and water - let sit until bubbly.
Meanwhile, mix flour, salt and olive oil (I use my kitchen aid).
Add water/yeast mixture to flour.
Add more water until you have a nice soft dough.

This is a quick pizza dough, so you can go right to rolling it out and topping. If I have time, I like to let mine rise for about 10 minutes.

Roll out, place on oiled/cornmeal dusted pizza pan. Brush crust with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt. 

Top as desired.

Cook for 8-12 minutes - or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

Chicken Enchilada Chili

This has become one of our go-to meals. It's so simple to throw together and I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

Chicken Enchilada Chili

In a crock pot add:
2 chicken breasts (I add mine frozen)
1 can each:
Cream of chicken
Green enchilada sauce
Green chilies
Rotel tomatoes
Season with:
Salt & Pepper
Onion powder

Cook on low for about 5 hours (I've cooked this longer than that and it's just fine too)

Serve with cheese and tortilla strips on top or tortilla chips to dip.

Grilled Pizza's

I've always wanted to try grilling pizza - it just sounds delicious. Little did I know just how easy it was!
I found a recipe for dough for the grill:

Grill Dough
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal for dusting
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • Proof yeast in warm water and 1/2 teaspoon sugar (just stir together and leave until bubbly - about 5-10 min)
  • Mix all other ingredients together, create a well in the middle and add the water and yeast - mix until elastic (knead by hand or in a mixer)
  • Let rise for 1 1/2 hours (should be about double)
  • Punch down and divide - makes about 4 - 8 in pizza's
  • Roll out on floured surface until pretty thin (I rolled them all out and stacked them between wax paper to take them all out to the grill)
Then we tried out several different kinds of pizza's.

  • spray grill with cooking spray
  • brush olive oil on one side of dough and place on the heated grill (I put one side on high and one on low - used low side to until the dough started to bubble just slightly and then the hot side to get it crispy)
  • once one side is done, remove from grill, brush uncooked side with olive oil, turn over and put the toppings on the cooked side (have I lost you yet?) - think minimal toppings - with the crust so thin it goes pretty far and it cooks better with little sauce and cheese so it doesn't get soggy 
  • Return to grill uncooked side down (return only to the low side as it needs time for the toppings to warm and melt) - watch the pizza carefully as it goes from done to too-done very fast.
My favorite type of pizza:


Topped with: Pesto, feta cheese, black olives, and chopped tomatoes (green peppers were on there but I wasn't loving them)

Clearly the types of pizza you can make are endless and this thinner crust is perfect for stronger flavors like this pesto and feta - I had thought of a white pizza with either ranch or Alfredo, BBQ Chicken, or even a spinach artichoke dip as a base - oh my mouth is watering just thinking about all these options!

The other thing we coupled our meal with was Pizza Factor Breadsticks - at least our attempt at them.

Pizza Factory Breadsticks

These are even easier  (although not quite on the money yet)

Rhoads Rolls (2 per breadstick)

2-3 Tbsp melted butter
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dill weed (I replaced with half parsley and half oregano -or even some basil would work)

Let the dough rise until double
knead 2 rolls together and rub between hands to create a snake
start at one end of a large bamboo skewer and wrap around
place on cake pan (this way there won't be a flat bottom)
let rise again until about double again
Cook at 350 for about 15 min
brush with glaze and top with Parmesan cheese

Mine kind of stuck to the skewer so I thought of soaking them in olive oil (which I'll try next time)
I have since found a recipe to make these from scratch that I may try sometime, but these are so easy with no dough prep.

I hope you enjoy all these things as much as we did. I'm already dying for that pesto pizza again.

Party Idea: I think this pizza could be so fun for a dinner party. You can set up a buffet table with different sauces, cheeses, veggies, and other toppings. It would be so delish, each person can make them to their own taste, and if you are creative (which I'm not) I'm sure the buffet table alone could be the highlight of the party.

Oreo Truffles

We had a potluck at work last week and I signed up to bring dessert. I initially just thought I would throw together some cake cookies (recipe to come someday - SOOO easy and delicious) but then decided to be more ambitious. Cameron suggested/requested:
 Oreo Truffles.
Anything with the word "truffles" in it sounds daunting to me, but I decided to take up the challenge. Turns out, it's incredibly easy. Try 'em.

Oreo Truffles
1 16 oz package of Oreo's
1 8 oz package of Cream Cheese
12 - 16 oz white chocolate
Any adornments you might like (melted milk chocolate - as shown, saved oreo crumbs, etc)

- crush Oreo's in a blender/food processor until they are fine crumbs
- mix with very soft cream cheese until it makes a dough
- roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls
- place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and freeze for an hour
- melt chocolate in microwave safe bowl in the microwave
- dip balls in chocolate and return to a wax paper lined cookie sheet
- add adornments
- return to freezer to set (eventually move to fridge to store if you like them cool like I do)

Makes about 35 truffles

* for making these for the first time I thought they went pretty well - but I did read some tips on how to dip (the hardest part in my opinion) and I used a bamboo skewer to dip - they popped off pretty easy onto the sheet.
* I used white chocolate with milk chocolate on top - but you can use dark chocolate or milk chocolate - or any chocolate you want really.
* for a twist on this you can use mint Oreo's - which could be delicious.
* only make these when you are taking them to share otherwise you might eat them all!

Buffalo Chicken Taco's

I know, I’ve been M.I.A. It’s sad really…

But I’m back with some more. I get these fabulous emails from bettycrocker.com that are filled with new recipes and ideas. I LOVE when they arrive (you should all sign up if you want the recipes to come to you).

I couldn’t pass this one up – I am a sucker for buffalo sauce and these sounded so easy and simple and perfect for our simple minded taste buds.

Yummy Ranch Buffalo Chicken Taco's


2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
½ tsp salt
¾ C buffalo wing sauce
¾ C ranch dressing
Shredded lettuce
Flour tortillas

-Cook chick in slow cooker for 6-7 hours on low (I guess with chicken thighs you don’t need to add any liquid, but I used chicken breasts and just added a can of chicken broth and some water so they didn’t dry out)
-Sprinkle with salt
-Removed chicken and discard the liquid
-Shred chicken with 2 forks
-In the slow cooker, mix ¾ C buffalo wing sauce and ¼ C ranch
-Add chicken and gently stir to mix with sauce (the chicken will continue to shred so if you want it more chunky, don’t shred too much initially)
-Let sit until heated through

To Serve: spread about 1 tablespoon ranch (or really as much as you want) on the tortilla, add lettuce and chicken and wrap.

  • I’m kicking myself for not doing this, but I wanted to top with some crumbled feta (I could add feta to anything), I think it would be a nice compliment to the flavor. Any cheese would work if you would like that, but it really doesn’t need it.
  • I might try flat bread next time. There is a lot of flavor in the chicken that I think it can handle a more substantial bread/wrap.
  • We might try to add some kind of veggie to add a different texture – possibly red or green peppers or possibly even celery (maybe).

These were SO easy – I love those meals. The sauce really isn’t all that spicy and the ranch helps to tame it, but it does get a bit more spicy the more you eat. You can find extra mild buffalo sauce if you are particularly bashful of spicy things.

Creamy Italian Chicken and Orzo Pasta

I tried this new recipe that I happened to love, but Cam was not quite a fan of (but said he still liked it).

It is SUPER simple and quick so I would recommend it alone for that – but will leave it up to you for your review

Creamy Italian Chicken and Orzo Pasta


1 Lb (2-3) chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 small zucchini chopped
½ tomato chopped
1 cup broccoli
1 (10 oz) tub Philadelphia Italian Cheese and Herb Cooking Crème
2 cups hot cooked orzo pasta


*Cook chicken and zucchini in skillet (I used a touch of olive oil and even went as far as to cook the zucchini separately and season with salt and pepper) until chicken is no longer pink
*Steam broccoli (simple to do in the microwave with a bit of water)
*Add cooking crème, tomatoes, and zucchini, cook on medium heat for 2 minutes stirring frequently
*Serve over pasta

  • I loved the veggies in this and that there was quite a bit of sauce. I’m usually not a fan of pre-prepared sauces from the store, but this one gets my approval.
  • One of the reviews I read online said that this doesn’t have the “from scratch” taste – which I think is why Cam didn’t totally love it – but it is so nice how easy and quick this is and I think still tastes delicious.

Cinnamon Rolls

 I am kind of a carb lover - I could eat carbs for every meal. And as you could have guessed I also like to cook/bake - so the two together are perfect. Who better to turn to for a good cinnamon roll recipe but Paula Deen?
Caution: Butter and Sugar Galore!

Ooey- Gooey Cinnamon Rolls


  • 1/4-ounce package yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup scalded milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter or shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour 


  • 1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for pan
  • 1/4 cup sugar, plus more for pan (I didn't do this, I have read it can make the bottoms really hard)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup raisins, walnuts, or pecans, optional 


  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional - I prefer mine not flavored)
  • 3 to 6 tablespoons whipping cream (add until desired consistency)

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. In a large bowl mix milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes. Place in well-greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

When doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread softened butter all over dough. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over buttered dough. Sprinkle with walnuts, pecans, or raisins if desired. Beginning at the 15-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices (I use thread and just cross it over to cut it)

Coat the bottom of baking pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar (sugar if desired). Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned (keep an eye on them the time will vary)

Meanwhile, mix butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add whipping cream 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency. Spread over slightly cooled rolls.

  • first off: be patient! The key to fluffy rolls is letting them raise fully - the first and second time
  • I changed the recipe a bit from the original - that is what I love about comment boards, you get to learn from everyone elses mistakes and take their comments and adapt the recipe before even making them. So I have written this how I made them.
  • These take probably a good 4-5 hours start to finish so they are a bit of a time commitment
I hope you enjoy!

Chicken Caesar Panini

This is hands down one of the best recipes I've tried - there is not much too it so I'm a bit surprised, but we were loving every bite of dinner tonight.

I've decided that meals are 80% recipe and 20% technique - I can tell I am starting to learn what I can do with that 20% to make recipes that much better - hopefully I can outline those enough in my comments throughout...

Chicken Caesar Panini

2-3 chicken breasts
Ciabatta Bread (Harmon's has the best ciabatta bread - so soft)
Diced Romaine Lettuce
Caesar Dressing
Shredded Parmesan cheese
Montreal Steak Seasoning

* Sprinkle chicken with steak seasoning (this is our favorite way to season chicken - we use this seasoning all the time)
* Grill chicken (or you can do this on a skillet but I was dying to take advantage of the BBQ weather today)
* Meanwhile, dice chicken, coat liberally with Caesar dressing and toss with Parmesan cheese (basically making a little Caesar salad)
* When chicken is cooked through cut up and place on sliced ciabatta roll, top with lettuce and close the sandwich
* With the grill already on (another reason to grill the chicken) place the sandwiches directly on the grill, place something heavy on top (I used a flat pan I have with the place that I used to carry the sandwiches out on and just pressed lightly) This gives it those professional lines (I'm also sure some of the more well equipped kitchens actually have panini makers or better things but the grill works great for us)
* Toast both sides for about 1-2 min - or until desired toasted/crispy-ness

  • As you have all probably noticed, we are pretty picky with what we ingredients we like so we didn't put any toppings but I'm sure onions, tomatoes, or anything else like that would go well on these - if your into things like that.
  • You can really season the chicken however you please, but since there is not a whole lot to this, the boldness of the Montreal Seasoning is just what we like.
  • The actual putting together of the sandwiches can be done however you please - we mixed the salad all up just for convenience and it holds the lettuce on a pretty well.
  • To get the toasted roll, you can also place cut side down in a skillet and let toast until your desired done-ness.
This is another quick and easy meal that is perfect for our working schedules and can easily be adjusted for more or lessservings (which is ideal when cooking for two).

Cashew Chicken and Broccoli

I always enjoy making Asian dishes - they are usually a perfect culmination of flavor, texture, and deliciousness. I also love the dinners that are an all-in-one type of thing.

This recipe caught my eye because lately I have loved almost any dish that has nuts in it like this.

Cashew Chicken and Broccoli

1 cup uncooked white rice
3 tbls soy sauce
2 teaspoons grated gingerroot (or as much as you want - I love this stuff so I add a lot)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp sesame oil, if desired
1 lb chicken but into bite size pieces
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 tbls vegetable oil
3 cups broccoli
2 green onions (we omitted these)
1 cup salted roasted cashews (I love nuts but I still cut this in half - it is just too much for this dish)

* Cook rice as directed (this is why my rice cooker is my best friend)
* Mix soy sauce, gingerroot, sugar and sesame oil and coat chicken - marinate for at least 15 min (or you can do this step a head of time and let it sit for a few hours - I did mine for about 6 hours)
* In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup chicken broth and cornstarch until cornstarch is dissolved, set aside
* In a skillet, heat vegetable oil on high heat, remove chicken from marinate (set aside remaining marinade) and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until no longer pink in the center
* Stir in broccoli and the remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth, cover and cook for 1 minute
* Add onions and cashews
* Stir reserved marinade into cornstarch mixture and add to skillet, cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
* Serve over rice

  • I really like the sauce of this but felt there wasn't a whole lot of it, so I think I am going to double the marinade and just add more chicken broth as I see fit.
  • We LOVED the broccoli in this so I am going to add more of that next time.
I have to thank good old Betty for this one - I can't take too much credit for this...

Bagel Pizza's

Need a quick dinner idea? Have too many left over bagels from our last cooking attempts?

I have the perfect (and most delicious) solution - I know this isn't even all that original, but we made them the other night and they were so delicious I just had to share.

Bagel Pizza's
Bagel of choice
Pizza sauce (our favorite featured below)Mozzarella 
Any other toppings of choice

Heat oven to 350
Cut bagel, top with sauce, toppings and cheese (we like our cheese on top so it holds everything on)
Add any spices you might like (garlic salt, red pepper flakes, etc)
Bake for about 10 min (mostly to warm the bagel)
Turn the oven to broil and watch until they turn bubbly and brown (about 5-7 min)

We like to make homemade pizza stuff alot so we usually have these things on hand which makes this meal that much easier. I have fallen in love with this pizza sauce too. It actually tastes like pizza sauce and not just totmato sauce imposing as pizza sauce. This squeeze bottle makes it that much easier to keep on hand (it doees come in a can but as you can imagine you don't always use it all hence the ease of the bottle). You can usually find it down the mexican isle by the taco stuff (I don't know why they store their pizza stuff there).

If you can't tell I always love a quick meal but one that tastes good. This definately hit the mark.

Homemade Bagels

There are some things that I would never have even thought to have made at home - bagels are one of them. About a month ago my mother-in-law posted on facebook that she got up and made bagels. I was blown away that they were even something that could be made at home - silly me.

So I made a goal to try them myself - and you know what? They are actually quite easy, I think easier than making bread. They even turned out so well Cam asked for some more when I got back from Vegas on Sunday.

I pretty much just copied this recipe (from here) since there are so many directions. But I have added my own little tips from my experience.

Delicious Bagels

3 1/2 C bread flour (you can substitute all-purpose flour but mine did not turn out as well when I did that)
2 pkg dry yeast
3 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs salt
1 1/2 C hot water
3 quarts water
1 1/2 Tbs barley malt syrup (or sugar or honey in the same amount)
1 egg white - beaten with 1 tsp water
Toppings of choice
cornmeal for dusting on the baking sheet
Make the dough: In a mixing bowl (or the bowl of an electric mixer) measure 3 cups of the flour and stir in all the remaining dry ingredients. Pour in the hot water, and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon (or with the flat paddle attachment of the electric mixer at low speed) and beat for about 2 minutes.

Add the remaining half-cup of flour, a little at a time, stirring by hand. When the batter becomes thick and heavy, attach the mixer’s dough hook (if using) or lift the dough from the bowl and place it on a lightly floured work surface for kneading by hand.

Knead the dough: Knead the dough at medium low speed on the mixer – or by hand (using a push, turn and fold motion, energetically) for about 10 minutes – or until the dough is firm and solid when pinched with the fingers. Add flour as needed if the dough is sticky in your hands, or sticks to the sides of the mixing bowl (if using electric mixer).

First Rising: When dough is kneaded enough, place it in an oiled mixing bowl, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap, and set aside at room temperature until it has doubled in volume – about 1 hour.

Prepare water bath: Near the end of this rising time, bring the 3 quarts of water to the boil in a large saucepan. Add the malt syrup or sugar; then, reduce the heat and leave the water just barely moving – at a slow simmer.

Shape the bagels: When the dough has doubled in volume, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and punch it down with extended fingers to remove excess gas.

Divide the dough into 10 pieces (each will weigh about 3-4 ounces). Shape each piece into a ball. Allow the balls to stand and relax for a few minutes – then flatten each one with the palm of your hand.

With your thumb, press deep into the center of the bagel and tear the depression open with your fingers. Pull the hole open, pull it down over a finger and smooth the rough edges. It should look like a bagel! Form all of the bagels and place them on your work surface.

Second Rising: Cover the shaped bagels with wax paper or parchment paper. Leave them at room temperature just until the dough has risen slightly – about 10 minutes.

Prepare the baking sheet: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with shortening (or use a non-stick baking sheet, or line a baking sheet with “Silpat” or similar material) and sprinkle the baking sheet with cornmeal.

Water-bathing the bagels: Into the gently simmering water prepared earlier, slip one bagel at a time. Simmer only 2 or 3 bagels at a time – do not crowd the pan. The bagels will sink and then rise again after a few seconds. Simmer gently for one minute, turning each bagel over once during that time. Lift each bagel out of the water with the skimmer (or gently with tongs or a slotted spatula), drain briefly on a towel, then place each bagel on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all bagels are simmered, drained and on the baking sheet - you can place these very close together and fit all 10 on one pan. They don't grow too much after this point.

Baking the bagels: Brush each bagel lightly with the egg-white-water mixture first, then sprinkle the topping if desired – or leave unadorned, for water bagels. If toppings are desired (my favorite is asiago cheese - but sesame seeds, poppy seeds or anything else you might like), now is the time to add them, by sprinkling the desired topping over the bagels. 

Place the baking sheet on the middle rack of the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. When the bagel tops are a light brown, turn them over to complete baking. This turning-over step will keep the bagels in a rounded shape, instead of their being flat on the bottom (I did flip mine over, I did still get a flat bottom but they do give the top a bit of a more browned/crunchy top - which I really liked). When brown and shiny, remove the finished bagels from the oven.

Place the bagels on a metal rack to cool.

  • I did use my kitchen aid for this and it makes it SO easy, so if you attempt to do this by hand it may be a bit more work...
  • I don't think you can be too liberal with the toppings - so add a lot. The bagels are so dense it needs a lot of topping (especially the cheese one's - the more the better!)
  • The bread flour honestly makes a world of difference - I won't make these again without it.
  • I think I will experiment with more toppings - possibly sunflower seeds, onion (if you like that), garlic something or other, and hopefully cinnamon sugar.
  • I might try to make whole wheat bagels or one's that have toppings/fillings mixed in.
  • They are delish right out of the oven - but they do set up a bit more once they are out of the oven so prime eating time (in my opinion) is about 10 min out of the oven. Yum... my mouth is watering wanting make these again right now!
Hopefully if you try these you enjoy them and are as impressed with yourself as I was. I just might have to start thinking of all the other foods I never thought were possible to make...
