BLT Sandwich {w/peppered balsamic mayo}


If I had a crystal ball when I was a child and someone would have shown me that I ended up owning a condo a few blocks from the ocean in California, I wouldn’t have believed it. If someone had shown me a vision of me making and eating a BLT sandwich, I wouldn’t have…

Avocado Asparagus Omelet Sandwich {w/Bacon}


I have no clue exactly what I was looking for when I stumbled upon this recipe for Avocado and Asparagus Omelet Sandwiches at BHG and just dropped what I was doing and stared. I had to have it immediately whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I had bread, eggs, and bacon on hand and immediately wanted to…

Butter Burgers


  I grew up in a state famous for “butter” burgers yet it never occurred to me to make one at home until I read a blog about them on Honest & Tasty. The author, Bita, lived in Chicago for a spell and in her Homemade Butter Burgers post talks about how she and her…

Kobe Beef Arugula Burger


One of my favorite places in town to get a really good burger is at Berlin Bistro on 4th and Elm. There are two burgers on the regular menu. I’ve had both. Both fabulous. But the one I really like is the Arugula Burger. It obviously has arugula on it but it’s also dressed with…

Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwich


I wasn’t planning on making a chicken salad sandwich today. I was, in fact, looking for a recipe for chicken salad that I could put on a salad. And that’s the exact recipe I found at a website called eatingwell.com. The more I thought about it, the more I felt the chicken salad would taste…

Open Faced Broiled Burgers


I love burgers. Love ’em. If you look at my Instagram page you’ll see it’s mostly food sprinkled with pictures of my dogs and sometimes some coffee or my nails. But mainly just food. And if you assess the food situation, honestly? It’s mainly just burgers. Oddly, I almost never make burgers at home and…

Bacon Blue Cheese Roasted Tomato Grilled Sandwich


For reasons I don’t care to get into in this blog, I found myself needing to use up bacon I had cooked. My first thought was, of course, grilled cheese. I don’t have much cheese in my fridge at this point. Some Dubliner, which doesn’t melt well. Not enough Tillamook Colby-Jack to make a good…

Breakfast Bagel Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


I may have bitten off a little more than I could chew by constructing this sandwich both literally (in that I could only eat about half) and figuratively (there was way too much going on in this sandwich!). If I could do it all over again I would probably removed the spinach and tomato and…

Bagel Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


I wanted to name this post “How to re-purpose office bagels” which is exactly what I did with a bagel I snatched from the office Friday afternoon. Have I ever explained how entirely selfish I am when it comes to food? One, you would think I grew up in the depression era the way I…

Healthy Avocado and Egg Breakfast Sandwich


A few days ago I made a commitment to myself that I would eat vegan Monday through Friday. Why? A couple of reasons. One, I got a rather sharp email from my doctor shaming me for my slightly high cholesterol levels and telling me I need to stop eating greasy food. I was ready to…

Croque Madame {sub bacon for ham}


I’ve been wanting to make a bacon version of the Croque Madame for weeks now.  Ever since seeing some delicious looking recipes on Pinterest. Perusing my fridge this weekend, I noticed that I had bought a package of thick-cut bacon from Trader Joe’s and never used it; and that I had most the ingredients for a…

Best Ever BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich


Tomorrow during the Superbowl I’ll be noshing on artichoke dip and kebabs made by the hostess of the party. If were hosting a party or in charge of bringing the main dish, I would make these sandwiches. I brought them to the studio Tuesday to share with my producers. We planned on doing a short…

Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwiches


In my head I make up awesome recipes all the time from unheard of combinations. Then I turn to the internet and realize a lot of other people had the same awesome idea way before it popped into my head. As my ex used to say, Great minds think like mine. (This is the more…

Warm Chicken, Bacon and Cheese Wrap


I have some leftover breaded chicken in the fridge that needs to be used and not a lot of other ingredients to go with it. During the brief time that I lived in the Phoenix area in 2010, my friend Kiki and I used to make sandwiches similar like this for lunch on nearly a…

Savory Beef Sandwiches


I love crock pot recipes for their ease. This one is especially easy! Slap some seasoning on a roast, cook for a few hours, shred and voilà – tender meat for sandwiches you can bring to a barbecue picnic (or to work all week long if you find you can’t make it to the picnic). I…

Pulled Pork and Caramelized Onion Panini


I love making a new recipe out of leftovers. Especially when I’m feeling broke (right after pay-day)! This recipe made use of everything I already had in the house. I just needed to whip up some caramelized onions first. ingredients. leftover BBQ Pulled Pork Caramelized Onions shredded sharp cheddar cheese shredded Gruyère cheese bread butter…

Liverwurst Sandwich


I’m hard pressed to find many people who say yum! when I mention wanting to have a liverwurst (“liver sausage”) sandwich. The woman behind the deli counter at Fred Meyer this afternoon looked at me in a mixture of disgust and confusion when I asked her for a half pound. I grew up eating these…

Italian Tuna Melt


This is just your standard tuna melt with Italian seasonings on Italian bread.
