Well, besides spaghetti and Ragu anyway. This pasta dish, which I not-very-adorably call “Pasta prima Sarah,” is full of vegetables and big chunks of turkey sausage. It’s hearty and satisfying and delicious.
A couple weeks ago I decided to make some French toast for Sunday breakfast, but I wanted to top it with something more special than pancake syrup. I decided a berry sauce would be perfect. I used frozen berries, and the sauce came out great. Serve it with French toast, pancakes, waffles or (my favorite) good quality vanilla ice cream.
I’m extremely susceptible to the power of suggestion, especially when it comes to food, so when I saw a post by Joy the Baker with a recipe for sugar cookie ice cream sandwiches, I became obsessed with making my own. I considered several different varieties of cookies and ice cream before I decided on Snickerdoodles and vanilla (Mayfield, of course).
I bake a lot, especially cookies. My specialty is butterscotch chip. So how did I make it 30 years into my life without knowing about cake mix cookies? For anyone else who may not know, the cookies use cake mix as a base, then you mix in whatever you want – nuts, chips, candies, etc. Holy moly were they easy!
I live in the South, land of the fried okra, and apparently even my Chicago-born mother isn’t immune to the siren song of sizzling oil. She recently gave me some zucchini grown by her friend Dina, and suggested I prepare them with her recipe for Fried Zucchini Cakes.
