Recipe for mini frittata's

I like using Bundt pans for making mini frittata’s; they have the folded design that just looks good. They make a great portion size for any meal you want to have it with plus it is very quick and easy to make.

Pigs in a blanket, pancakes and sausages.

Pigs in a blanket (sausage and pancakes), fresh sliced strawberries and topped with strawberry glaze. Sometimes making breakfast should just be fun and easy. This is a simple breakfast to make and fun for everyone to eat. I just made a simple pancake mix right out of the box, fried up link sausages and sliced some fresh strawberries. The syrup is just a simple strawberry glaze you can find in most stores.

Recipe for Apple Pie Free Form

This is a simple, quick recipe that I love. I usually don’t like baking with the exceptions of pies. Meat, chicken, fruit, empanadas, free form single crusted and or double crusted pies, I love making them. I make free form pies when I am short of time but need good dessert. Apple pie free form style is very simple and can be made with store bought items that you might typically have on hand. The vanilla bean sauce makes this apple pie great, because it pairs well with apples and cinnamon.

Recipe for Chili Con Carne

My favorite recipes are those which have multiple uses and chili is definitely one of my favorites. Whether I make it with beans or without depends on my mood. I particularly like black beans in my chili, but chili spices work with pretty much any kind of bean. But with, or without beans, chili goes with so many things - chili dogs, chili burgers, baked potato smothered with chili, or just a bowl of hot chili.

Recipe for Hot Pastrami Sandwich

This hot pastrami sandwich, is made with sour dough bread, pastrami, fried cabbage and provolone cheese. Sour kraut and rye bread are typically used for a Reuben sandwich but I did not have sour kraut or rye bread.
I usually have sour dough bread and always keep a head of cabbage in the fridge. Instead of making sour kraut, I fried cabbage and used sour dough bread in place of rye bread. I have long been a fan of fried cabbage and adding it to a sandwich turned out great. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
