Savory Corn & Cheddar Waffle Ham Sandwich with White Cheddar-Mustard Sauce

I gave myself a bit of a Spring Break this week from sharing delicious recipes! The reason wasn’t a glamorous vacation, or even a staycation, or even leaving work at a reasonable hour. Nope, I felt like zoning out after work, but this was not possible due to the four dogs we had in our […]

Italian Sausage & Eggplant Roll

I take recipe naming very seriously. I think I took the chapter in Freakonomics entitled “A Roshanda By Any Other Name” to the extreme to heart. In the aforementioned chapter, the authors of Freakonomics, Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner, analyze the long-term impact that the simple act of naming a baby has on the child’s future. […]
