Warm sausage and potato salad with honey-mustard dressing

sausage-potato-salad

We have a new agreement, Speedy and I. If it rains, I cook lunch and dinner. If it does not, I cook lunch and we can have leftovers or sandwiches for dinner. It's not a permanent arrangement but only until the extreme humidity lets up. In this heat, I just don't feel too inspired to cook and one cooked meal a day is better than sandwiches for both lunch and dinner.It … [Read more...]

70 recipes with sausages

sausage-mushroom-pilaf7

I love sausages. Not the kind variety that goes by the label Vienna sausages though. Hotdogs? The good ones, yes, but definitely not the red kind that shrivel and shrink when cooked. I love real sausages -- the highly seasoned, smoky, deep-flavored ones that have been left to hang for a long time.And I don't just cook and eat sausages in their original form. I like to … [Read more...]

10-minute Chinese sausage, spinach and eggs stir fry

chinese-sausage-spinach-egg

Today's brunch consisted of sausages and eggs. But not fried like they're usually served. This fast-cooking, tasty meal has everything in it, including a generous amount of vegetable, and it is cooked a la oyakodon -- with eggs, lightly stirred, and a little sauce. It's a little salty, subtly sweet and very tasty. Simple to make too. Cooks in ten minutes flat including … [Read more...]

Savory muffins with cheddar, sausage meat, sun-dried tomatoes and basil

savory-muffins

Alex came home in the middle of the week and, after a good night's sleep, I prepared a very hearty brunch to help her recharge. She was going back to school the following day and I only had one day to pamper her. I made a quick angel hair pasta, her favorite, and some savory muffins. I had two pieces of Vigan longganisa in the fridge that I thought I'd make good use of. … [Read more...]

Sausage, pasta, tomato and cabbage soup

sausage-pasta-soup

A one-pot dish that's a breeze to prepare. The sausage meat makes the broth rich in taste while the vegetables and pasta make the soup very filling. Serve it as a first course and you don't have to follow it up with a heavy meat dish. Best of all, it's so rustic and comforting it almost feels like having a meal in a shaded patio surrounded by fruit trees.This is a dish … [Read more...]

Sausage and milk pasta

Everyone in my family has cough and cold. I thought it was plain exhaustion. The girls were having their final exams at around the same time that my mother passed away, then they moved to another unit in the same condo, there was a lot to do and, well, you add the usual skirmishes that are part of any family dynamics and I thought that everyone was just physically tired, … [Read more...]

Braised beef kneecap and sausages with potatoes and cabbage

braised-beef-kneecap

I don't know in how many parts of the world people eat beef kneecap but, in the Philippines, it is quite a delicacy. And when I say kneecap, I don't really mean the bony cap itself (although that's part of the whole enchilada) but the meat, the tendons and the fat surrounding it.Cooked by itself, it is already so delicious as the tendons soften and turn gelatinous … [Read more...]

Tripe, sausage and chickpea soup

tripe-chickpea-soup

This is a tomato-based soup quite similar to the tomato soup with tripe and sausage but with a few significant differences. First, the ox tripe and knuckles were pressure-cooked to save time and fuel. Second, I used glorious, glorious Vigan longganisa, a present from Alex who went on a field trip to Ilocos about three weeks ago. Result? A spicy and very aromatic soup so … [Read more...]

Spaghetti aglio e olio with sun-dried tomatoes, bacon and Hungarian sausage

pasta-bacon-sausage

I hope you're still not tired of pasta aglia e olio yet because I'm still discovering so many wonderful variations. Apart from the basic spaghetti aglia e olio, I've cooked a variation with sun-dried tomatoes and, more recently, with mussels on the half shell. This time, I took the variation with sun-dried tomatoes a step farther by adding bacon and crumbled Hungarian … [Read more...]
