Homemade Hot Dog Chili Sauce

Homemade Hot Dog Chili Sauce

I remember having my first taste of a Chili Cheese Dog when I was a kid. It was from Joe’s in my hometown and it was a foot-long, hanging off the bun on either side and smothered with chili and melty cheese. It was heaven! I can’t go back in time, but I can make this Homemade Hot Dog Chili Sauce & recreate that memory as best I can.

Homemade Canadian Donair

Homemade Canadian Donair

These days simple do-able recipes with a high pay off have been my mainstay. Do Homemade Canadian Donair qualify? I think so. And while these sandwiches might look restaurant quality (and the idea DID come from one, Occo Kitchen & Bar, I saw on Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dives and here’s the video) these lovely Canadian versions of the Gyro are much easier than you’d guess,. especially if you view it as a mostly a “make ahead” meal. Gotta love that!

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Sometimes I think a bell pepper can be stuffed with just about anything but I gotta tell you these easy Southwestern Stuffed Peppers are really a standout. They have the fun flavor of tacos but are fresher, lighter, and lower carb, and can I just say, stuffed with mostly pantry ingredients? And cheese. And ground beef, chicken or turkey (or just go vegetarian.) And then, well, more cheese.
