Sometimes, No Recipe is The Best Recipe

I’m sure at one time or another you have come home from a busy day with no idea of what to make for dinner. Happens to me quite often but, sometimes no recipe can be the best recipe.

Check out this leftover, bbq rotisserie chicken pizza which turned out to be one of the best pizza’s I have ever had.

This was literally made from leftovers and whatever was in the refrigerator.

  • rotisserie chicken
  • bbq sauce
  • onion rings
  • mushrooms
  • chopped onion
  • mozzarella cheese
  • blue cheese dressing
  • pizza dough from the bakery( I always keep one on hand as a go to)

My point being: get creative, let no food go to waste and stop stressing over that ”perfect” recipe.

Have fun in the kitchen!

Super Delicious Carmelized Onions

It’s time to indulge in those delicious carmelized onions you find as key ingredients on the menu at restaurants everywhere.

Carmelized onions are simple; using 4 tbs butter, 2 1/2 lbs. sliced onion and thyme! Viola! Simmer in a covered pot for 10 minutes and continue to cook on low for 30 minutes stirring vigorously every 3 minutes. Voila! Super delicious carmelized onions to make restaurant quality burgers or gourmet pizzas. The onions will keep nicely in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. I prefer to use a glass mason jar for storage.



Mouthwatering Apple Cobbler

Need something delicious in a pinch? I bet there is a can of apple pie filling in your pantry somewhere. Break it out and doctor it up to create an apple cobbler that is better than homemade.

Simple. Add 1/4 c walnuts and a 1/4 c raisins with 1/2 tsp apple pie spice and juice from half a lemon in a bowl with the apple pie filling and stir. Scoop into small mason jars and add a heaping amount of streusel topping. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
