Homemade Pretzel Dogs: No Chopping Needed!

  • Food: homemade pretzel dogs
  • Ingredients: flour, yeast, sugar, salt, baking soda, hot dogs
  • Prep Time: 1 hour
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
Having given up any facade of eating healthy, Jill and I chose a delicious, easy, and cheap meal this week: Pretzel Dogs! Pretzel dogs are my favorite food in the whole world (except for potatoes, of course). I had never attempted to make them at home before, so thank goodness Jill is an amazing baker. The dogs turned out so good that we have decided to open up a pretzel dog food truck and sell them on the mall. We should be billionaires soon enough…

  • Ingredients: bacon, potato, pie crust, cream, thyme, puff pastry, salt and pepper, swiss cheese
  • Prep time: 1 hour
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
In honor of pie day this week, Jill and I made pot pies! Jill had the idea, but there was one problem: I don’t like potpie! After a little searching, I came up with a recipe for bacon and potato potpie, and figured there was absolutely no way I could dislike it. I was right! It is impossible to create bad food out of bacon, potatoes, pie crust and cream!

Lentils and Italian Sausage

  • Food: Lentils with Italian Sausage
  • Ingredients: lentils, chicken broth, carrots, celery, shallots, italian sausage, diced tomatoes, salt, pepper, cinnamon, clove
  • Prep time: 25 minutes
  • Cook time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
After our delicious overdose of carbs and steak last week, we decided to keep this week’s meal a little healthier. So we did the unthinkable and cooked a meal that included vegetables! Right now you are probably about to close the tab and move on to another blog because you don’t believe anything with vegetables could ever taste good, but wait! It was actually tasty, I promise!!

It may look like something that's already been digested, but I promise it tasted good!

Leftover Beef Wellington in a Red Wine Reduction Sauce

  • Food:¬†Beef Wellington in a Red Wine Reduction Sauce
  • Ingredients: leftover beef wellington, red wine, shallots, beef stock, butter
  • total time: 10 min

Jill and I got sophisticated this week in honor of the Oscars and made the most delicious meal in the history of our blog: Beef Wellington! That’s right, it’s so fancy I had to capitalize it. For leftovers, I knew I needed to kick it up a notch in order to maintain this snazzy streak we are on. Ergo, I decided to try making a reduction sauce.

Reduction sauces are basically really delicious gravy. My dad always makes them with steak, and he is an amazing cook, so I knew if I was successful I would have something to be proud of. My dad likes to joke about how I don’t like gravy unless you call it a “reduction sauce.” I also don’t like meat loaf unless you call it “meat balls,” or hamburger unless you call it “ground beef,” or yard work unless you call it… nope, there is nothing you can call yard work that will make me like it. Sorry, Dad.

Spoiler alert: The sauce was delicious.
