Sausage and Potatoes

Lately, I have been looking for ways to make dinner time way less stressful.  This is something I tried and it was awesome and the whole family liked it.  It was simple to put together, clean up was minimal and best of all no stressing over dinner.  I will be making it again.
Sausage and Potatoes
adapted from
1 pound smoked sausage, such as andouille or kielbasa, dice in to chunks.
1 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut in 1- to 2-inch chunks
3 to 4 carrots, cut in 1-inch pieces (I used baby carrots and didn't cut them.)
1 cup onions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon  ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 large clove garlic, crushed and finely minced

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 - 2 cups shredded cheese
*Optional 1/2 cup lemon lime soda

Combine the sausage pieces, potatoes, carrots and onions in a large food storage bag or a bowl.  Toss with the pepper, salt, seasoning, garlic,olive oil and soda.
I then put mine in the fridge so that dinner was all but ready when I got home from work.
(The soda just helps the potatoes from browning and gives it a little extra flavor.)

When you are ready to cook:
Heat oven to 400°. Grease a  9 x 13 casserole dish  with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour mixture into your dish.
Roast for 45 to 60 minutes, until vegetables are fork-tender, stirring every 15 to 20 minutes. If desired add cheese to the top and cook until it is melted.
* You can replace the seasoning salt with  Cajun or Creole seasoning.

Made for a quick and delicious dinner!


  1. This sounds so good, Tiffanee! I have used lemon lime soda on apple to keep them from browning, but I never thought to do the same with potatoes! Great tip!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
