Pumpkin Chili Cheese Pasta

Pumpkin Everythang!

Have you ever had one of those days where you wanted to make a quick and easy dinner in one pot? That was me the day I made this concoction. I had a small pack of ground beef, some pumpkin, left over frozen blocks of cheese from past recipes, a box of spaghetti and a dream that it would all come together and be delicious.

Roasted Pumpkin and pepper cheese dip

Pumpkin Everythang!

This is the best thing you can have in your refrigerator when hungry bites. A nice bag of pumpkin cheese dip to make sandwiches, eat on crackers, carrot and celery sticks, I would even spread this on burgers…this would actually be excellent on a burger. Just all in all a great dip that everyone should have on hand.

Ital Pumpkin Rasta Pasta

Pumpkin Everythang!

What is rasta pasta? The general consensus is that it’s any pasta dish which utilizes the colors of the Rastafarian flag, yellow , red and green. I notice when you google rasta pasta, the results are filled with a whole bunch of pasta recipes which contain meat. I have to admit I found it quite amusing, since the true Rastafari is vegan. Some die hearted ones don’t even use heat to cook their food, let alone top their pasta with grilled chicken. So I decided I would stick to what I’m sure is the origin and make a vegan, Rasta pasta.

Pumpkin sesame seed hamburger bun

Pumpkin Everythang!
It’s another October and time again for pumpkins.  This month get more challenging as the years go by. So I have to get very creative with what I come up with. A few months ago I made a delicious sweet potato onion hamburger bun. I decided to try my luck with the same recipe with a few more modifications and some fresh pumpkin.

Fried Avocado Sandwich


Have you ever fried avocado? Its not at all bad. I was totally expecting to hate it, but the sandwich was absolutely delicious. The salsa, crunchy avocado, and that mayo atop the toasted hot dog rolls, is amazingly delicious. This is a must try.

Jamaican corned beef sandwich aka Bully beef sandwich


This is a classic Jamaican lunch. Almost every child has some memory of corned beef sandwich packed in their lunch kit. I love, love, love corned beef, even though I know it’s not good for me. We limit our corned beef consumption to maybe three times a year sometimes less. We always have a can of it on hand in the pantry but we rarely ever use it. Today I whipped out the can of corned beef and made a Jamaican Bully beef sandwich. Even though there may be some debate as to my method.

Shrimp jibarito


A few years ago my sister and I were both interns in Manhattan at different city departments. She was with NYC media, and me with the department of city planning.  It was amazing that our offices were within walking distance from each other because that meant daily lunch dates. We had Italian, so much Cuban, food trucks, Chinese, you name it we had it. After a while we realized that this daily lunch thing was wreaking havoc on our pockets so we decided to carry lunch and have it in the park. Before we opted out of the lunch restaurant hopping scene, We had our first Jibarito at a Puerto Rican restaurant named Sazon.

Apple pie & Lemon icecream Sandwich


I was thinking about a chocolate chip cookie and ice-cream sandwich. But I got to thinking and there are soooooooooo many chocolate chip cookie ice-cream sandwiches out there. I’m borderline sick and tired of ice-cream between chocolate chip cookies.  Well, let me take that back, I will never be tired of chocolate chip cookies. So I went back to the drawing board, tried to think of a unique but easy to make cookie that I can use for my dessert sandwich. I also wanted a dessert that I’ve never seen anyone make before. It’s the new way to have an apple pie a la mode.

Blue Cheese BLT

 Bacon lettuce and tomato aka BLT is the lunchtime sibling to the breakfast classic bacon egg and cheese aka BEC. It’s such an easy go to sandwich that you can have any time of the days and with all sorts of added goodies. Today I decided a nice cheese would be a great way to take the sandwich up a notch.

Grilled chicken n cheese


The best chicken sandwich I think I have ever had in my life is from a little bakery in soho NY. I can’t remember the name; it’s on Prince Street with a green storefront. They make the most epic cilantro grilled chicken sandwiches in this world. I have recreated it several times at home with smoked mozzarella, it’s just pure bliss. I was going to post that recipe to the blog however the universe was just against me.
