Sausage, Pepper & Onion Stromboli
Source: My Kitchen Addiction
1 batch whole wheat pizza dough
1 lb. Italian chicken sausage links (we used regular because we couldn't find chicken)
1 TBSP. extra virgin olive oil
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 large sweet onion (or 1 small), sliced
6 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 oz. parmigiano-reggiano cheese, freshly grated
Add extra virgin olive oil to drizzle over top
Preheat the oven to 375. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.
In a grill pan over medium heat, brown the sausage links until cooked through. Meanwhile, heat the extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced bell pepper and onion and saute until the veggies are tender.
Stretch the dough over the baking sheet forming a large rectangle. Arrange teh peppers and onions lengthwise down the center of the dough rectangle. Slice the sausage links crosswise into small 1/4 inch slices and arrange on top of the peppers and onions. Sprinkle with the two cheeses.
To form the stromboli, fold the two long ides of the pizza dough up over the filling and pinch with your fingers to crimp at the top. Roll up the ends and pinch together to seal off the ends. Drizzle some olive oil over the dough and then use a pastry brush to evenly coat the stromboli. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
Bake for about 30 - 35 minutes. Let rest for 5 - 10 minutes prior to slicing. Serve slices topped with warm marinara sauce.
Basic Whole Wheat Pizza
1 cup warm water
1 package yeast (I TBSP)
1 TBSP sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Start by combining the water and the yeast in a large mixing bowl (if you are using the electric mixer, use the mixer bowl). Add the sugar and stir to combine, dissolving the sugar and the yeast in the water. Add the salt, olive oil, and 1 cup of the whole wheat flour. Beat the mixture until smooth.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and the all purpose flour. Knead for about 5 minute, until the mixture forms a dough (or use the dough hook on the mixer on low speed for approximately 2 minutes until the mixture forms a ball).
Transfer the dough to a large greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until the dough doubles in size.
Lightly grease a 15 inch pizza pan or a large baking sheet. Spread the dough on the pan and allow to rise for an additional 15 minutes.

Cheesy Chicken Benchilada's
Source: Annie's Eats
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 oz. reduced fat sour cream
8 oz. Ranch salad dressing
flour tortillas (10-15) – we like Azteca, packs of 10
jar of salsa
shredded mexican cheese (I usually use close to 4 cups, I love cheese!)
Cook chicken breasts by preferred cooking method until cooked through. Set aside to cool a bit.
While chicken is cooling, mix up the sauce. In a large mixing bowl, combine half of the sour cream and half of the Ranch dressing. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the sour cream and Ranch dressing. Stir both until well combined. Shred or chop the cooked chicken and add to the large mixing bowl. Mix well with sauce.
Preheat the oven to 375°. Grease a 9 x 13″ pan (and possibly another, smaller pan if needed). Take one tortilla and top with a little less than 1 tbsp. of the sauce from the small bowl. Spread over the tortilla in an even layer. Add some of the chicken mixture to the center of the tortilla. Top with salsa to taste. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, to taste. Roll up tortilla and place, seam side down, in the prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining ingredients (usually makes 10-15 enchiladas).
Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes (30 for a crispier tortilla). Allow to cool a few minutes before serving.
When reheating, reheat in the oven at 350 for 10 - 15 minutes.

8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream (I used greek yogurt)
1 tsp. dried oregano (heaping tsp., for more flavor)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup your favorite pizza sauce (or 1/2 cup tomato sauce mixed with pizza seasonings)
1/2 of a pepperoni sausage, chopped small (but not sliced), that will equal about 1/2 cup
1/2 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together the cream cheese, sour cream, oregano, garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes. Spread into a 9-inch pie pan. Spread the pizza sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the pepperoni, onions and peppers. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the cheese.
Note: Make sure your cheese doesn't end up in one big clump in the middle. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the dip to ensure that it won't bake together, which will make it hard to get the dip out.
Return the dip to the oven and bake for 5 more minutes until golden.

1 large onion, sliced
2 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
1 cup hot water
1/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup

1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice (see note)
1 tsp. baking soda
¾ tsp. salt
16 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1¼ cups granulated sugar (or brown sugar)
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup white chocolate chips
½ cup chopped, toasted nuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with foil. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Stir together and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined. Mix in the pumpkin puree. With the mixer on low speed add the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate and butterscotch chips (and nuts, if using) with a rubber spatula.
Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs, about 35-40 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool completely before cutting.
To serve, lift the cake from the pan using the foil and transfer to a cutting board. Peel off foil and using a sharp knife, cut into 24 squares.
If you don't have pumpkin pie spice on hand - I dug this up as a way to make from spices:
Measure 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon into a small bowl or cup.
Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger.
Add 1/8 teaspoon of ground allspice or ground cloves.
Add 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.
Stir to blend.
Makes 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.

- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
Place the confectioners' sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed until creamy, scraping down the bowl with a rubber spatula as you work. Add the cream and beat on high speed until the mixture is light and smooth.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled (optional)
1 ½ – 2 batches peanut butter frosting
Miniature Reese’s cups, halved and/or chopped
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until soft and creamy. Add the sugar and beat for about 2 minutes, until thoroughly blended into the butter. Add the eggs and yolks one at a time, beating for one minute after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk; add the dry ingredients in 3 additions and the buttermilk in 2 (beginning and ending with the dry ingredients). Mix each addition only until it is blended into the batter. Scrape down the bowl and add the melted chocolate, if using, folding it in with a spatula. Divide the batter between the prepared cake pans. 4. Bake for 26-30 minutes or until the cakes feel springy to the touch and start to pull away from the sides of the pans. Transfer to wire racks to cool for about 5 minutes, then run a knife around the sides of the cakes, unmold them and peel off the paper liners. Invert and cool to room temperature right side up.
5. To assemble the cake, place one cake layer on a cardboard circle covered in foil. Spread peanut butter frosting on top of the cake layer. (If desired, sprinkle with chopped Reese’s cups.) Place the second cake layer on top of the frosting. Frost the top and outside of the cake with remaining peanut butter frosting. Decorate with halved and chopped Reese’s cups as desired.

- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus 8 cups for frying (I omitted the 8 cups for frying & used a couple more TBSP to just crisp them a bit)
- 1/2 cup diced white onion
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 1/2 pounds cooked chicken breast, shredded while warm (I shredded the chicken by putting the chicken on a plate ~ salt & peppered a bit ~ a bit of buttermilk ~ microwaved for 8 minutes ~ worked perfectly)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
- 8 (10-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
- 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
- Wooden toothpicks
- Chipotle Salsa (Emeril gave a recipe ~ I just bought some & it was great)
- Sour cream, for garnish (I used Greek Yogurt)
- Fresh cilantro sprigs, for garnish (Shredded lettuce instead)
Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, oregano, and cumin and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the shredded chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the green chiles. Cook mixture for about 5 minutes, or until heated through. Set aside and cool slightly.
One at a time, place the tortillas on a work surface, keeping the remaining tortillas covered with a damp towel. (For pliable tortillas, sprinkle lightly with 1/4 teaspoon water and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 10 to 20 seconds just before ready to stuff, and keep covered until ready to roll.) Spread 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture in a rectangle in the center of the tortilla. Sprinkle with 1 to 2 tablespoons of cheese. Fold the bottom of the tortilla over the filling and then fold the sides over. Fold the top of the tortilla over the folded sides and secure the sides with wooden toothpicks. Place folded side down.
Heat the remaining vegetable oil in a deep stockpot or deep fryer to 360 degrees F. Using tongs, lower the chimichangas folded side down, 1 at a time into the hot oil. (It is helpful to hold the chimichanga with the tongs until it has "sealed" together.) Cook until golden brown on all sides, about 3 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and continue with remaining chimichangas. I totally altered this part of the recipe. Instead I put a TBSP of oil in the pan, just put each side of the enchilada in for 1 minute or 2 to crisp. I put them on a baking sheet as done and baked at 350 for about 15 minutes or so to heat through and ensure the cheese was melted inside.
Remove toothpicks from the chimichangas and serve immediately with Chipotle Salsa, sour cream, and fresh cilantro. (Again I used Greek Yogurt & Lettuce.)

Chipotle Salsa with Pan-Roasted Tomatillos
4 medium tomatillos, husked, rinsed and cut in half (about 8 oz.)
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 chipotles in adobo (more if you want more heat)
Set a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Lay in the tomatillos (cut side down) and the garlic. When the tomatillos are well browned, about 4 minutes, flip everything over and brown on the other side. The tomatillos should be completely soft.
Scoop the tomatillos and garlic into a food processor and add the chipotles, about 1/4 cup water, and salt to taste (about 1/2 tsp.). Process everything together into a course puree. Thin with additional water if necessary.
Red Chili Chicken and Rice with Black Beans
2 Tbsp. canola oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1.25-1.5 lbs. total)
2.5 Tbsp. ancho chili powder, divided
1 medium onion, large dice
1 cup rice
4 cloves garlic, minced
1.5 cups chicken broth
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped green onions, roots and wilted outer leaves removed before chopping (OR 1/3 cup cilantro OR 2-3 Tbsp. epazote or hoja santa)
1/2 to 1 cup salsa, such as Smoky Chipotle Salsa, or chipotle hot sauce for serving
Heat the oil in a medium-large heavy pot (with a lid) over medium-high heat. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breast with salt and 1 Tbsp. of the ancho chili powder. Place the chicken in the hot oil and brown on each side, 2-3 minutes. Remove to a plate, leaving behind as much oil as possible.
Add the onion and rice to the pot. Stir for several minutes, until the rice turns from translucent to opaque. Add the garlic and the remaining 1.5 Tbsp. ancho chili powder. Cook one minute, and then add the broth and salt to taste. Stir well. When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
Cut the chicken breast into 1″ pieces. Add them to the pot along with the beans. Re-cover and cook 12 minutes longer.
Sprinkle the green onions and test a kernel of rice. It should have no more than a hint of chalkiness at in the center, in which case you place the cover back on, remove it from the heat and let it stand 5-10 minutes. If it’s not cooked, cook for another 5 minutes or so.
Fluff the mixture with a fork and serve with salsa for each person to spoon on al gusto.

2 cups half and half
1/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
Whisk together the half and half, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan. Heat the mixture, whisking frequently, until it comes to a full, rolling boil (it will start to foam up). Remove from the heat and whisk in the peanut butter, stirring until thoroughly blended.
Chill the mixture thoroughly, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Here is a great mix-in for the ice cream:
Peanut Butter Patties
6 TBSP peanut butter
2 TBSP powdered sugar
Mix together the peanut butter and sugar in a small bowl. Line a plate with plastic wrap. Pinch off small pieces of the peanut butter mixture, about 1/2 tsp. each, and drop them onto the dinner plate. Once you've used all of the mixture, freeze the patties.
Mixing them in: Fold the Peanut Butter patties into 1 quart of ice cream as you remove it from the machine. The patties ban be stored in the freezer, well wrapped for up to 1 month.
