Pablano Ranch

You might know that I have worked in the restaurant community in the not so distant past.  Unfortunately one of the fine dinning restaurants that I worked at was bought out by a corporation and wasn’t keeping a pastry chef…me, and  buying the desserts from food vendors instead.  I could have stayed with the company…

Travel blog – Czechia

When we first started this blog, I also wanted to create a type of travel blog that would allow us to look at food and see how we liked it, recreate it, and find out if it was just a tourist trap or if it was actually the type of food that was eaten there…

Pita Bread (Gyros)

In order to have a proper gyro you need pita bread. They are fairly easy to make and they are really cool to watch bake. They puff up like huge oyster crackers in the oven. This bread is a great alternative to sandwich bread, due to that pocket that happens naturally in the baking process. You…

Stew Pasties

What to do with leftover stew? I know it is better the second day, but no one at my house is good at eating leftovers. So I have to find ways of completely re-inventing the original dish, especially soups. So I was browsing on the internet and came across a recipe on one of my favorite cookbook…

Tuna Nicoise Sandwich

I have seen this same bread used at Arby’s with their reuben sandwich. The reason I love this bread is that it’s…

Sloppy Joes

I like to buy things in bulk. When I buy hamburger I buy a 10 pound tube. Regardless of what my husband may think, I do not like to go to the market every day.  I think it’s the parking lot and the lines that drive me crazy and not looking over the food, I could…

Egg Salad

Egg salad is not really a glamorous sandwich like the turkey club, but its tasty and packed full of protein. Since I’m a texture girl, I like my egg salad chunky with pieces of onion and sometimes celery. I don’t like it bland either, I made homemade mayonnaise or rather an aoli (mayo with garlic) so it…
