Sliders Two Ways: Cheese Steak & Cuban

Cheese Steak & Cuban
Linda and I were recently at a family gathering where we had around 80 people to feed. When that happens I source some of the food to catering and then go to very simple appetizers, dips and crackers. Also, I have a perfect and easy way to make sliders. I get the Hawaiian style rolls – but in the butter roll not the sweet rolls – and make sandwiches. Always a hit and not a lot of fuss for me! Continue reading

Meatloaf Sliders With Sundried Tomato Aïoli

meatloaf-sliders-with-sundried-tomato-aioli-1
Almost every Friday from January to April my Hubby offers lunch to his staff. This time of year they are so busy… and as often as I can I make it for them. Spoiling people is what I love to do and it is always an honor to share my love of food with them. Well, this time I made Meatloaf sliders on a little Ciabatta dinner roll with a really pungent sundried tomato aïoli. The aïoli added that strong flavor you would get from the ketchup concoction that usually gets baked on top of a meatloaf. They were a huge hit and were just perfect with my Creamy Cheesy Tomato Soup! Continue reading

Meatball Sliders

Meatball Sliders

Ok, ok… I know this might seem a bit parochial, but I think it’s a real time saver for the holidays. Meatball Sliders! My mother always fried her meatballs before she put them in the sauce, but I don’t. I put them into the sauce raw and let them flavor the sauce. Take note, I don’t use a fatty meat. I use a lean beef. Anyway, if you’re like me and have lots of visitors over the holidays…this is a quick and simple dish to have around. Who doesn’t like a meatball sub?! The perfect bite for you or your guests… Continue reading

Here we are again… Turkey leftovers! Every year I make the same mistake. I make more bird than the people I invite. Even after I’ve sent everyone home with an ample amount of leftovers, I still have leftovers! Well I know I’m not the only one because if you follow us you saw Linda’s awesome sandwich yesterday… here is how I used some of my turkey and the leftover dinner rolls too… Continue reading

Winter meets Spring!

I love that spring is here and the snow has quickly melted!! But my refrigerator still has remnants of cold day ingredients along with all my spring ideas. So today I brought them together for a bit of fresh and a touch of comfort.

I am lucky to have the ‘Love of My Life’ come home almost every day for lunch, so we can share my creations together. Today we started our lunch with a hearty yet healthy salad. Meatless but full of flavor!
