Black Bean Patties

Thankfully, my family really like beans.   They are a great source of soluble fiber, protein, folate, magnesium, and other minerals. They also have no cholesterol and are low in fat. While I really like and appreciate all of the great nutritional facts about beans, I really love that they are very inexpensive and can […]

Cuban Sandwich

The Cuban sandwich (Cubano) at the Back to Cuba Cafe in Nashville, TN opened my eyes to how really delicious a Cuban sandwich could taste. It still is probably the best one I have ever eaten. However, I must admit that close second is one I made.  In fact, it is so close that it […]

Roast Beef Manhattan a.k.a. Hot Roast Beef Sandwich

Whether you call it a hot roast beef sandwich, an open-face roast beef sandwich, or a roast beef Manhattan, it is warm, wonderful comfort food to me. Traditionally in my family, we referred to it as a hot roast beef sandwich. However, some menus of local restaurants listed it as an open-face sandwich. It would […]

Pimento Cheese Spread

I have already shared the recipe for my dad’s pimento cheese. We called his (and most others) “pimento cheese salad” as it was very similar to ham salad. It is still my favorite, especially for sandwiches. However, I have also discovered some good “pimento cheese spreads” here in the South. To me, and probably only […]

Berry and Brie Flatbread Pizza

The abundance of fresh berries is one of the many things I love about summer. While I think of them most of the time as being fresh snack or part of a dessert, the versatile summer berries can be used in savory-sweet dishes also. Recently, one of favorite savory-ish uses of berries is on flatbread […]

What is a true pepperoni roll?  It is a […]

Sweet Onion Burger

My husband has liked those frozen onion hamburger patties since his dad cooked them once when we were visiting a few years ago. He likes them so much that he has been known to buy and cook them when we have had direct-from-the-farmer, grass-fed beef in the freezer. I am more of a fan of […]

Monte Cristo Sandwich

The first Monte Cristo sandwich I remember eating was for lunch at a bar/grill called Mycroft’s in Huntington, WV when I was in graduate school. I was immediately hooked after the first savory and sweet bite. Years later, the college where I taught started offering them as a lunch special every few weeks. The cook, […]

Portobella Pizza

It is such a simple idea. I can not believe that I did not think of it sooner. I had four wonderful looking, very large portobella mushroom caps.  They were too lovely to slice into something else, but I was not exactly in the mood for a mushroom steak or burger either. I had just […]

Ruben Pizza

Do you like Ruben sandwiches? Actually, I really do not. However, I really do like Ruben casseroles and Ruben pizza. So, if you’re like me and not a fan of the Ruben sandwich, do not assume that you will not like a Ruben pizza. My inspiration to make a Ruben pizza came from a couple […]
