Breakfast Sausage Ravioli for Pass the Cook Book Club

Breakfast Sausage Ravioli \ PasstheSushi.com

It’s an extra special jam packed post today. Why? Because it’s cookbook club day! Because Breakfast for Dinner is the best thing ever. Because making pasta by hand makes it really hard to not take messy step by step photos and cover your fancy camera in pasta goo. Because we’re giving away a copy of our featured cookbook this month! Because it’s sunny! Ok… got a little carried away there. Erin handled the recipe selection this month, using a cookbook that I just happened to have on the shelves that I have been neglecting by fellow food blogger Lindsay Landis, […]

Poor Girls Lobster Grilled Cheese & T-Fal Griddle Giveaway

Poor Girls Lobster Grilled Cheese via PasstheSushi.com

Believe it or not, until I made this sandwich, I had forgotten how amazing a grilled cheese could be. Until I took my first bite, I didn’t know how perfect a grilled cheese with clumps of seafood in the middle could be. I could have eaten three and not given a crap about by arteries. I’m young, wild, dangerous, and you can’t stop me. When T-Fal sent over an email with this lobster grilled cheese and their tiny little grilled cheese griddle I was open to give it a try. This griddle is just that – a single egg – […]

Nutter Butter Banana Pudding – in Jars!

Nutter Butter Banana Pudding from PasstheSushi.com

Motto of the week “Instagram that shit!” Which would have probably been more awesome if I had a cell phone signal for like 5 minutes while tucked away in the mountains of Virginia and her half-sister to the west. A 4 day weekend with no map or plan in which I learn that even though the memories are about the trip and not the destination, sometimes a little preparedness goes a long way. We kicked off the day one by heading up to Hagerstown to pre-ride an upcoming race course and visit some friends. The course was BORING – straight up a hill and […]

Crispy Baked Chicken Fingers For Two

chicken_fingers_0123

Have you ever had a craving for food you were fond of as a child but grew out of? I can’t tell you how bad my craving for chicken fingers was. It was one of those no matter how good the meal in front of me was I still wanted little chicken fingers to dip in ketchup or barbecue sauce or something. Anything! Sadly, the last time I had chicken nuggets at a fast food joint, my stomach was not so happy about it. >.< So, I was forced to make my own and it’s something I should do more […]

Thin-Crust Skillet Pizza for Two

Skillet_pizza_0357

Cooking for two is tough. Stupid tough. Everything is packaged either too big or too small. I feel like Goldilocks. Don’t get me wrong, we eat like champs around here and I’m not looking to make everything with tiny portions, but some nights we just need something for the two of us that doesn’t leave us dreading leftovers for the next few nights. Lately I have been trying to tie in a few more cooking for two recipes on the blog. Where I do love making big meals, these quick and easy date night dinners (and desserts) have been awesome. […]

Maybe it’s because I have already spotted Halloween decorations in someones front yard and that stores are already decorating the aisles in red and green, but the upcoming fall cookbook releases have me scratching to write a letter to Santa.

Top 10 Cookbooks for Fall 2012 Baked Elements: Simply put, the Baked cookbooks are the books you can not live without.

Pesto Tortellini Gratin

  Who needs reality TV – if you could follow Handsome and I around on a mundane Tuesday night, you would never slump to the lows of the Jersey Shore ever again. I promise. See, we are a sippy cup kind of special. You won’t hear us having thought provoking conversation that would eventually lead to the cure for cancer. No sweet poems would pass our lips with candlelight and music filling the air. No long conversations about the duldrums of one’s job. Nope. You’d see him chasing me around the house with a spoon covered in macaroni  and have to put up with […]
