Happy Egg Sammich Monday! You are going to notice a common theme in the next few recipes, chipotle in adobo. A small can goes a long way, so when I used it to make my Smoked Red Chimichurri I still had quite a bit left over. I absolutely love the stuff, Bobby Flay has definitely got me hooked on it (Since he seems to use it in every recipe). So, naturally, I hate using a little bit of it and throwing it away. Usually what I do is just buy a can, puree it and then keep it in the fridge for other purposes. It adds a wonderful smokiness and heat to anything you are making. So, without further ado, Episode 3 of Egg Sammich Monday, I bring to you the Southwest Eggie!

Sous Vide...I love it...it's my favorite cooking method. It produces the most amazing, consistent results. So, of course when I am asked to come up with a sous vide recipe, I jump at the opportunity, because I get to do something different! I saw the other day a picture of a steak with a beautiful, vibrant, green chimichurri sauce...a sauce just alive with color. I look out the window and all I see are grey skies, snow, cold and basically death. I decided that I was going to stick it to old man winter and make something summery like beef kabobs with chimichurri sauce. That's right, I'm tired of you winter, I refuse to succumb with my tail between my legs and make some kind of soup (Not that there is anything wrong with soup). Of course, old man winter responds with more snow...thanks jerk!

I decided to start a weekly post called Egg Sandwich Monday. I absolutely love eggs and breakfast sandwiches. Not to mention, it's fun to see what you can come up with. I love opening up the fridge, seeing a carton of eggs and seeing what all I can throw into them. One of my favorite things to put into eggs is broccoli! My Mom got me started on it and she got it from her grandfather (my great grandfather). When I opened up the fridge, I of course saw the eggs, guacamole, salsa and wraps. Easy peasy, we're going Mexican!

I think crock pots are one of the greatest kitchen inventions ever. Just think about how much easier they make life? You throw everything in the pot, turn it on and let it go. Then you come home to a house full of delicious aromas and dinner waiting for you! This is definitely in the top five of easiest recipes on my blog and it is quite delicious. So, give it a try and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

My fiance and I went to Dunkin' Donuts the other day and she got the Steak n' Egg sandwich there and to be honest, it was REALLY good! So over the weekend, I was trying to think of something to make for lunch. I hate wasting food and surprising it happens a lot in a two person home because you don't use all the meat in the pack. When I was looking in the freezer, we had a couple larger size meat balls of ground beef and I had some eggs, so of course, I decided to make my own steak n' egg sandwich. The best part? This recipe is super easy and a great lunch sandwich. Enjoy!
