Chicken Cordon Bleu Mac & Cheese

Chicken Cordon Bleu Mac & Cheese
If you remember my post about the Chicken Cordon Bleu Stuffed Shells, I told you… If you have some mixture left over don’t throw it away! I’ll be using it another way in a post coming up soon. Well, this is it. I froze what was leftover, but if you are making it without the leftovers, here’s how… I made it for the girls at my Hubby”s office for lunch and they said it was the best Mac & Cheese they ever had!!! Yay!!! Continue reading

Ham & Cannellini Bean Soup

Talk about comfort food… I am in love with this soup! Hearty and light, simple and delicious! I used spinach to finish it off this time because that’s what I had, but you can use escarole for a little crunch. You can also add chicken and tomatoes if you don’t want to use ham. I seriously recommend giving this soup a try… Oh, by the way it’s always better the next day.

Talk about good! Every year at Christmas my Hubby gets an enormous whole ‘bone-in’ ham from one of his clients.

Well, not this time… this time I used rum and coke. It was very good! Continue reading

This is a great end of the summer party sandwich. The kids may be back in school, but the pool is still open and on the weekends the family still visits to absorb every ounce of what is left before the leaves begin to change. Lots of fun and food is to be had by all on these still-sunny days. This hearty ham sandwich had everyone going back for more! Continue reading

Pepperoni & Ham Pizza

Pepperoni & Ham Pizza

Years ago my parents gave us a Bread Maker machine for Christmas. I can tell you that this is one great gift and it has gotten a lot of use! We’ve made all kinds of breads, specialty breads, pretzels & cinnamon rolls…but by far, everyone’s favorite and the most-often thing to come out of our Bread Maker machine is pizza dough! In just 120 minutes we’ve got two ready-to-go pizza dough…thick or thin, your choice…toppings, your choice. But always a winner! I’ll be sharing a meatless pizza on Friday – so stay tuned!
