Italian Roasted Red Pepper, Ham & Brie Sandwich

Italian roasted red pepper, ham and brie sandwich

EASY LUNCH RECIPE: ROASTED RED PEPPER SANDWICH STUFFED WITH BRIE, HAM AND A PESTO MAYONNAISE Forget about the boring ham and cheese or the peanut butter and jam sandwich you threw together just to get something in your gob. Feast your eyes on this gorgeous roasted red pepper sandwich. I know… doesn’t it look delicious? It was! I’m a huge sandwich lover so when my wife suggested we make a roasted red pepper sandwich stuffed with triple brie, ham and a pesto mayo I was up for her sandwich spread idea. My wife is one of those people who comes up with odd mixes of food but I always taste everything. The last sandwich I tested that she told me was amazing turned out to be peanut butter and banana with honey which I wasn’t a huge fan of. I like peanut butter but only inside cookies or other baked treats. I didn’t grow up on the stuff like she did although our son seems to love eating peanut butter by the spoonful. Luncheon meats and cheeses on the other hand, I ate plenty of so I knew I was safe with this roasted red pepper stuffed sandwich recipe […]

Fire-Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Tomato and Fennel

Fire Roasted Red Pepper Soup v2

40-MINUTES AND SOUP IS ON THE TABLE I’ve always been a huge fan of roasted red peppers especially with hot homemade bread slathered with butter. I’m also a huge lover of soup so I thought why not combine the two with tomatoes and fennel to create this hearty Roasted Red Pepper soup with tomato and fennel. It’s after the snow starts to fall that we get into that ‘warm me up mode’ and have soup on the brain. My favourite soup is a bean-filled tomato minestrone but I also love simple broth soups or quick and easy soup like this roasted red pepper soup. Two summers ago we used to grow peppers in our back yard but we have since gotten away from growing vegetables in the garden for now because baby and renovations have taken too much of our time. Our garden is however filled with herbs which we love to grow especially basil to pair with all the fresh vegetables that our relatives with massive gardens give us. I also make fresh basil pesto cubes and freeze them for times like today when I’m making a pot of soup and I want to jazz up the flavour. […]

Mr.CBB’s Roasted Red Pepper Gnocchi In A Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Mr.CBB's Roasted Red Pepper Gnocchi In A Creamy Mushroom Sauce

  Don’t be afraid of the word Gnocchi, pronounced “noki” which are simply soft potato dumplings that melt in your mouth. They are super easy to make and easy on the budget. You can’t compare frozen to homemade and the price well it’s as cheap as it gets to make these little lumps of love. I’ve made these bundles of yummy goodness for many years now as they were a favourite of mine back in the UK. Along with gnocchi I also enjoy tortellini and ravioli all which offer something unique on the dinner plate than regular pasta. In the past I’ve made bog standard potato gnocchi but I’ve also made spinach gnocchi which are also very tasty. When I wanted to make this recipe I was wondering if I should make a rapini or roasted red pepper recipe but since I’ve made spinach before the peppers won. Gnocchi originates in Italy and means “Knot in wood” or “Knuckle” and has been a traditional meal since Roman Time. Gnocchi are simply made with flour, eggs, potato, spices and cheese. You can easily make these love dumplings at home or purchase them fresh or frozen at your local supermarket for a fairly cheap price. This […]
