This two-fisted sandwich boasts a variety of colors and flavors. Like red, plump tomatoes; fresh basil and mozzarella; red onions and green peppers; salami, ham and capacolla - drizzled with homemade Italian vinaigrette. These classic Italian flavors make a great combination for this well-loved Italian American sandwich. Chips or a scoop of potato salad and a piece of seasonal fruit make this a delicious, satisfying meal.
This is a VERY easy breakfast that I paired down the calories count. I love making it because it's easy to clean up and prepare. I haven't had them in years, but I'm always looking for something new to do to so my girlfriend won't get bored with the standard favorites. (Also great for breakfast in bed...). You can certainly disregard the "Lower-Cal" style and go with Regular Bacon, Regular Cream Cheese and Regular Bagels. If you try it, let me know what you think.
I got this from the bartender at my favorite restaurant. He serves the best mojito (mango majito in particular), but this is my all-time favorite drink. It differs from the Long Island Iced Tea in that it doesn't have tequila. Some bartenders make this drink using 7-Up instead of Coke, but I usually make it at home using Diet Coke.
This is my favorite recipe adapted from the Pioneer Woman. A decadent lunch! I tweaked it a little from her original: I reduced the sodium and fat by reducing the chicken base and butter, and changing the heavy cream to half-n-half. And I thought way more fresh basil was needed to make it taste spectacular.
This recipe was featured on the Rhodes Around China TV series on the Hong Kong leg of the journey. Gary was taught to make these by a couple of local executive chefs. They are incredibly easy to put together, and very flavourful. I sometimes add bean sprouts and peas and corn and leave the meat out to make them vegetarian. Great as a snack, light meal or as part of a buffet. My family, especially the children, love them.
This recipe comes from Susan Branch's Summer Cookbook. I saw a recipe similar to this but I think this version is spectacular on a summer day lounging by the pool. I realize this seems like a strange combination but the taste is delicious. I like my beers on the hoppy side but I definately use a light beer in this recipe.
