Chorizo Potato Hash

Do you know, I think breakfast might be my favorite meal of the day. Or rather, the foods we Americans normally consider breakfast foods are my favorite. I very rarely actually eat breakfast, mostly opting for tea or coffee and a snack of fruit mid-morning. My appetite waits until the afternoon to make its ravenous appearance. 

Therefore, in order for me to enjoy my love of breakfast foods, I turn breakfast into dinner (brinner, being of course, the better of the br meals. Brunch is nice, brinner is the winner). Bagels, pancakes, crepes, waffles, eggs, omelettes, and the ever deliciously carb-tastic potato hash make an enviable brinner. Add some spicy chorizo sausage and you have the perfect twist on a classic. Enjoy! 


2 russet potatoes, diced

2 medium red onions, wedged

1 bell pepper, diced

1/2 pound Mexican chorizo sausage, uncased

1 tablespoon taco seasoning

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil

4 eggs


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Toss the diced potatoes in 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning, then spread onto a rimmed baking sheet in one even layer. Roast for 20 minutes, until the potatoes soften.

Toss the wedged onion and diced bell pepper with 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper. Once the potatoes have roasted for 20 minutes, add the veggies. Cook a further 10 minutes. 

Crumble the chorizo sausage on top of the potatoes, onions and pepper. Lightly drizzle with olive oil. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes, until the sausage begins to brown.

Remove the tray from the oven and make four wells. Crack an egg into each well and season with salt and pepper. Return to the oven for another 2-5 minutes, until the egg whites are set and the yolks still runny. 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

Copycat Star Crunch

I really love Little Debbie snacks but I very rarely have them. I don’t like eating things that are full of unpronounceable ingredients and preservatives. Plus, I greatly prefer to make things myself. My favorites have to be Oatmeal Creme Pies and Star Crunch. I am still looking for a perfect Oatmeal Creme Pie copycat recipe, but this recipe for Star Crunch is absolutely perfect. These cookies are a fantastic combination of caramel, chocolate, and crunchy crisped rice cereal. They keep in a sealed container for a week, or in the fridge for a month. Next time you crave  Little Debbie Star Crunch, try your hand at making your own! Ingredients: Recipe Credit: Adapted from Stella Parks 1/2 cup water 1 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon vanilla paste 3 ounces of milk chocolate chips (use a chocolate for baking; some versions of “eating” chocolate contain too much fat. When your combine this chocolate and the caramel together, the

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
