My Take on Danish Layer Cake

While I was out grocery shopping the other day, I came across Smucker’s Seedless Red Raspberry Jam. That’s right, seedless! Immediately, I knew what I wanted to do with it, other than toast a zillion english muffins and spread it on them! I would try to make my own version of a Danish Layer Cake. …

Famous Pepperoni Omelette

My younger kids can now say they have had the privilege to try their older sister’s Famous Pepperoni Omelette. What makes it famous? Why because my dear Petunia made it! Today marks the end of the second 4-day weekend the kids have had this month due to extreme cold temperatures here in Wisconsin. For us, …

Links for Food Bloggers

Some time last spring, RecipeGirl did a post of 150+ links for food bloggers. She said it contained “everything you needed to know”.  She’s right! I am not strictly a food blogger, but I do like to share some recipes and food reviews. So, I started scrolling through her list. RecipeGirl’s list is for beginners …

Big-A** Sandwiches

Portland, OR- This sandwich cart was featured on the Travel Channel, so we gave it a try when in Portland. Like their name says, they specialize in making rather big sandwiches that include the fries and slaw within the sandwich. Reminds me of our beloved Primanti Bros in Pittsburgh & Fort Lauderdale. Their signature beef …

Mutts Canine Cantina

Dallas, TX- Yes, you read that correctly, Mutts Canine Cantina. It’s a one acre dog park and a restaurant, complete with beer garden.  What a great concept! If you have a membership, you can drop your doggie off to an attendant for some off the leash fun while you dine! Or you can sit and eat …

Stratos Greek Taverna

Dallas, TX- Stratos Greek Taverna touts itself as providing “Global Greek Cuisine”.  The Gyro was ordinary in flavor, had too many giant discs of fresh onion, and the only highlight was the tzatziki sauce. The offerings are a little pricey compared to other Greek restaurants across the country. The Greek Sampler comes with 2 stuffed …

Philly Cheesesteak Meatballs

Yesterday, I was chatting with my cousin, Stretch, about food, as always.  She mentioned to me that this was Mini Muffin Tin week on Rachael Ray’s show. I’m all about making whatever I can in a bite size format. So I went to Rachael’s website, saw the picture of the “mini cheesesteaks”, immediately pinned it …
