Sheet Pan Kielbasa, Cabbage, Apple and Potato

Is there anything better than a sheet pan dinner? Slice, season, roast and you are done. If you use a precooked meat like kielbasa (aka my favorite sausage), the time reduces even further since it just needs to heat through.

You can buy pre-mixed Chicago Style Steakhouse Rub if you like the convenience; I like to make my own since it is cheaper and so that I can control the amount of salt. If you make your own, you can tweak the ingredients to suit your tastes. 

I love the combination of kielbasa, sweet apple, creamy, crispy potatoes, and colorful cabbage. Add the punch of the steakhouse seasoning and you have a delicious, healthy and easy mea for weeknights or weekends. Enjoy!

1 pound baby yellow potatoes, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoon Chicago Style Steakhouse rub, recipe follows
1/2 small head red cabbage, halved lengthwise
1 sweet onion, wedged into 8 pieces 
1 large Gala or Fuji apple, cored and sliced into 12 pieces
1 kielbasa sausage link, sliced on the bias into 1/2 inch thick slices

Chicago-Style Steakhouse Rub
1 tablespoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons granulated garlic
2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sweet smoked Spanish paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Toss the potatoes on a sheet pan with 1 tablespoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon steakhouse rub. 

Cut cabbage halves into 3/4 inch wedges; put these into a bowl with the prepared apple slices. Toss with remaining olive oil and steakhouse seasoning. Add to the baking pan.

Put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. 

Remove from the oven; add the kielbasa. Return to the oven and bake a further 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Raspberry Pomegranate Jam

Tis the season to be making homemade gifts! Pomegranates are in season and their juice is a festive deep ruby red color. I knew I had to make them into a jam to give away. Straight pomegranate flavor is a little tart for me; I added raspberries for the texture of their seeds and their sweetness. This is a very simple recipe to make and will yield 6 to 7 8 ounces jars of jam or 12 to 14 4 ounce jars, if you like to give away sample sizes during the holidays. Enjoy! Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice 1 cup mashed raspberries 7 cups sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1 1/75 ounce package Sure Jell Method: Sterilize your jars and lids. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed large stock pot, add the pomegranate juice, raspberries and butter. Mix well. Add in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil then stir in the Sure Jell. Allow to boil hard for 1 minutes. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam. Ladle into the sterile jars, twist on the lids and pr

Peek-a-boo Squares

My grandma, Mimi, taught me this recipe. I used to make this with her and my mother as a child. It is my very favorite dessert. It is incredibly easy to make, and even easier to eat. My favorite part of making this as a child was dusting every bar generously with snowy white powdered sugar.  My favorite version of this dessert uses canned blueberry pie filling; I vastly prefer Libby brand over the store brand. You can make blueberry pie filling from scratch with sugar, cornstarch, bleberries, etc. but using the canned stuff is easy in a pinch and is much for nostalgic for me. Plus, I don’t notice a vast improvement over my homemade blueberry pie filling and the Libby brand; it just takes me longer to put this dessert together.  I have been known to whip up a pan of these Friday night and have them disappear by Saturday afternoon. Be warned, these things are addictive! Ingredients: 3 cups of all-purpose flour 2 cups of granulated sugar 4 eggs 2 sticks of

Samosas with Yogurt Sauce

I love exploring many kinds of cuisine in my kitchen because I can control the spice level, and in the case of this recipe, the use of cilantro. Cilantro lovers out there- sub it info the parsley here. I have the gene that makes cilantro taste like soap, which limits my ability to enjoy some dishes in restaurants, but is easily rectified in my own kitchen. I hope you enjoy! Ingredients:  3 russet potatoes 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped 2 teaspoons curry powder 5 ounces peas Six 8 inch flour tortillas 4 ounces Greek yogurt Oil, salt, pepper, vinegar 4 tablespoons butter Method: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
