French Dip Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

4 ingredients (6 if you count the cheese and buns) + 1 slow cooker = 1 splendiferous dinner.  And, in case you wondered, splendiferous is in the online thesaurus.  It’s a more funtastic word than “good”, don’t you think?

I used cube steaks to make these sandwiches, but you can use round steak or another cut if you like.  Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…]

Fire Roasted Tomato Sauce with Two Cheeses

One of my favorite kind of recipes to create is pasta dishes.  Coincidentally, I also love to eat pasta.  This sauce has both Parmesan and Provolone cheeses along with fire roasted tomatoes.  Ever since I tried fire roasted tomatoes a few months ago, they’ve been a staple in my pantry.  They pack a bit more flavor than plain diced tomatoes.

Gina’s Club Sandwich

Gina's Club Sandwich done whole

I have a sister named Gina.  Gina has a friend named Desiree who has been bothered by the fact that I rarely mention my sister.  So, in honor of Gina (and to put Desiree’s mind at ease) I’m featuring one of Gina’s excellent sandwiches today.  But before I give you the low-down on how to make these, here’s a few things about Gina.

  1. When she was little, Gina had a Mrs. Beasley doll, a Bugs Bunny doll and a J.J. doll with a pull string (Dynomite!)
  2. Her favorite doll was Baby Beans, who was so over-loved that mom had to stuff her with old pantyhose after all the beans fell out.  We also fed Baby Beans a marshmallow through her cracked mouth.  It’s still in there, black from age.
  3. In high school, she always matched her socks to her shirt.  And she had many, many pairs of shoes.
  4. She introduced me to my husband, Jim.
  5. Now she and her husband raise 3 children and a herd of bison.

Now for the Club Sandwiches.  They taste fantastic with hot melted cheese, bacon and seasoned, toasted buns.  Here’s what you’ll need:
