A Guilty Indulgence

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011


Being an employee of Quiznos can be a curse sometimes. Working 3-hour shifts around the aroma of toasted subs can really get to a person, especially when they’re hungry. I’ll admit, I can’t help but give in to my cravings at times and order a sandwich! One of the more popular sandwiches to order at Quiznos is the Double Cheese Cheesesteak: Prime Rib, sautéed onions, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, and double Swiss cheese. Although I never order this sub, I was craving it this week and decided to make my own version of it.

When the Easter Bunny Goes on a Diet

Eggs Benedict: a brunch specialty of an English muffin half topped with a slice of Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and a drizzle of Hollandaise sauce. How did this lovely combination come to be? Now that’s a mystery. While there are several myths about the origin of eggs Benedict, the most popular myth claims that the idea came from a hungover Wall Street broker named Lemuel Benedict, who was desperately looking for a cure to his hangover in 1894 at the Waldorf Hotel. After Benedict piled bacon and poached eggs on top of buttered toast and topped it with Hollandaise sauce, Oscar Tschirky, the maître d’hôtel, altered Benedict’s concoction and replaced the toast with a toasted English muffin and the bacon with Canadian bacon.

Protein-Packed Quesadillas with a Twist

Friday, April 8th, 2011


I love quesadillas. They’re like an empty canvas just waiting to be made into a beautiful work of art. You can do just about anything with quesadillas, and that’s what makes them so fun! If you love BBQ chicken pizza, you will definitely be in for a treat with this quesadilla recipe.

Chicken is always a must with quesadillas. Meat lovers who want to reduce their fat intake and boost their protein levels should definitely switch on over to chicken. Trader Joe’s Bold & Smoky Kansas City Style Barbecue Sauce complements the chicken very well! While BBQ sauce is definitely not a health food for its high sugar content, this particular brand by Trader Joe’s stands out from the rest because it has no cornstarch in it. When eaten in moderation, BBQ sauce is loved for its non-fat aspect. (more…)

It’s Time to Mix Things Up

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011


I’m barely back from spring break and things are already starting to get interesting around here. Yesterday we began filming for my web series, Bitchen in the Kitchen (more on that in just a second), when I accidentally sliced a huge piece of tissue on my right index finger. Yikes! I’ve never had an injury in the kitchen before, so this was a first. Needless to say, I got a huge adrenaline rush when I had to be rushed off to the hospital for stitches. The worst part is that we were almost done filming our segment when this accident occurred! Although I’m not allowed to go near water or anything else messy for a couple of weeks, I went ahead and pulled off this week’s recipe with my left hand (and some help from someone I appreciate very much).
