Chicken Philly Sandwiches

Chicken Philly Sandwiches are a classic! And EVERYONE has opinions. My opinions include onions, peppers, AND mushrooms! No matter what though, you need this cheese sauce in your life. DO IT.  This is my post for the end of the world. Because if we’re all going out then I’d be completely okay with this sandwich …

Gratitude

One year ago today I started Sugar Dish Me. At least I think it was one year ago today. What had happened was… Sugar Dish actually started out on another host site. I hated it. So I managed to wrap my technologically challenged brain around migrating my material here. But when I got here, sugardish.com …

Baked Buffalo Chicken Rolls

There are some things I never, ever get tired of. morning coffee. getting magazines in the mailbox. finding a mix CD in the car that I haven’t listened to in ages and the anticipation that goes with figuring out what’s on it. spicy chicken. I know it’s only been a couple of days since I unleashed …

4:15 A.M.

This morning, a little after 4 a.m., my eyes fluttered open because I heard a noise. Actually, this is the third time this week that a late night noise has pulled me from my already sporadic slumber. The first two times were weird; once I woke up in a panic and scrambled off the bed …

Prep Work

This week is one greatbiglongneverending list. There’s the three birthdays in five days list. And the eleven people getting ready for a beach trip list. I have shopping lists and grocery lists, packing lists and left to-do lists. And finally there’s the cook-it-before-we-go-so-I-don’t-spend-our-whole-vacation-in-the-kitchen-list. It’s pretty important. That’s the list that insures my being able to lay in the …

Are We Friends?

Tell me if I’m wrong, but I feel like we’re friends. I ramble on to you all about my kids, and my boyfriend, and the lady that screamed at the cashier in the grocery store for 20 minutes holding up the line because the poor girl didn’t want to cash her $400 personal check. Did …

Party in a glass. Happy 4th Everyone!!  

If You Can Read, You Can Cook

When I started writing this blog I had approximately a zillion and one ideas about what direction it should go in. I thought about meal planning, and being budget conscious. I thought about my strange kitchen experiments that often yield pretty great results (and sometimes not so great…). I thought about the foods we enjoy as …

Sassy Oatmeal

I’m a cereal kinda girl. Granola? Love it. Granola bars? Love those, too. Quaker Toasted Oatmeal is darn near perfect. You can stuff cereal into muffins. You can make it into treats that are drenched in pink sprinkles. Chex Mix, anyone? Corn Flakes are smashed and sprinkled over casserole. Chicken is dredged in cereal crumbs and baked …

Asparagus Pesto Ravioli

I like to play in the kitchen. Sometimes I’m inspired by magazine articles or blogs I read. On occasion it’s the weather. Other times it’s my mood. Colors and cravings definitely come into play. And then there are days I am inspired by necessity. There is the desire to use up all the leftovers. Sometimes …
