Left Over Sausages #SazonGoya #WorcestershireSauce

October 2, 2015 · Leave a Comment


Here is a quick way to make sausages and peppers.  Not only quick but tasty.  I shocked myself.

I recently had a BBQ and had plenty of sausages left over.  When I came home from work and decided to make sausages and peppers.  I just needed to eat something different then what we normally eat everyday of the week.

So here is what I did.

I sliced up the sausages length wise.  Took two large onions and saute them in oil, then added 3 large peppers.  When the peppers looked like they were getting done I added a packet of Sazon mixed in a half cup of water.


Then I added some Worcestershire sauceIMG_2352.  Oh, if you want you can add a few fresh tomatoes.














Top with sliced sausages and let cook till peppers are done.

We enjoyed this quick sausages and peppers with a loaf to Italian bread.   Truly Yummy!

Easy Salad #HoldTheLettuce

September 11, 2015 · 1 Comment

Have to share this great salad recipe.  My co-worker told me this salad was easy to make and a little different.  A salad without lettuce, just cucumbers, tomatoes and onions.
3 cucumbers – peeled and slicedIMG_2327
3 tomatoes (nice size) cut into chunks  (if small you can use a few more)
IMG_23291 large Vidalia OR Red onion, diced
Put all of the above in a large bowl and mix up the dressing:
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of vinegar ( I used cider vinegar) But any kind is fine
1/4 cup of oil
1/4 cup of sugar (can cut in half if you want)
2 Tablespoons salt
1 Tablespoon pepper
Mix the dressing with a whisk and pour over the salad.  IMG_2330cover  and let marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator.
This is easy and delicious!  And you and your guests will love it. If they don’t, “Then don’t invite them back ever again!!!!!!!!!!!!! ” said my co-worker.    Just love her.

Carabott Cake

July 30, 2015 · Leave a Comment

Carabott Cake, not to be confused with the Carrot Cake, is a cake that I think everyone needs to make, or just taste.   The Carabott Cake, the name I baptized it, was made for us by  Mrs. Jane Carabott.  Jane Carabott, is a long time family friend.

When I asked her for the recipe I thought for sure it would be one of those complicated recipes that I would never, ever make.  But to my surprise Jane rattled off the recipe, and in less than a minute the recipe was blurted out…EASY!  I knew that this was the cake I would attempt to make and bring with me to one of my dearest friends for dessert.  First time dessert making you have to bring to one of your long time dear friends, so if it goes horribly gross we can all laugh it off.

Now more about the making of Carabott Cake:


One package of Pillsbury or Duncan Hines yellow cake mix.  Prepare as directed.  Once this is completed go to next step

IMG_2087 In another bowl mix 16 oz ricotta, 3 eggs, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla.  Whip ingredients together until smooth.  IMG_2088

Prepare baking dish as directed on box of yellow cake, pour cake mix into the baking dish, then top with  ricotta mixture  and bake for 45 minutes @ 350 degrees.  IMG_2089

IMG_0844That’s it!  Carabott Cake is done.  You can sprinkle cake with powdered sugar right before serving…
