Italian Sausage & Chicken Pot Pie

This recipe is fun to make in individual servings, as well, but making the whole pie is a bit quicker and I was definitely short on time for actual cooking on this night for dinner…

There are some make-ahead tricks that will help you save time and money for this dish!

Due to the craziness of my night when I shot this particular recipe, I unfortunately don’t have a picture of the pie cut into. I’ll admit, it’s not the most beautiful colored dish (topping each slice with a bit of chopped fresh parsley definitely boosts the color and flavor a bit but it’s not necessary).

I will tell you though… no matter what you think of the look of this pie, it is comforting, gratifying, and downright delectable…

Make it on a day you need some extra comfort… it will be delicious no matter when you decide to pop it in the oven!

F is for Feta & Tomato Frittata

Many of the recipes I make myself come from the need to make a quick lunch. My challenge? To include whatever ingredient I’m currently doing for Apples to Ziti.

A frittata is super simple to make as long as you have an oven-safe skillet.

F is for Feta Greek Salad

The official recipe for this “Big Greek Salad” can be found here. I took out a couple of ingredients, added in one, and modified the directions just a touch to tailor it to my family’s tastes.

I served it with Turkey-and-Rice Stuffed Peppers and they were a great match! A delicious, gorgeous meal…

An Egg Ending

Whew… Found it!

Have you ever lost something important, torn apart your house to find it, and then had to give up in despair thinking you’d lost it for good. You’re mad because you don’t want to buy a new one but it’s something you need… or at least use often?? That was my past five days. I lost, I searched, I despaired.

However, this story has a happy ending… I found my lost something!! This is especially exciting for me, because usually the item I lost is never found and I’m always left wondering if it grew legs and walked away of its own accord somehow.

What was my precious lost item? None other than my camera card. I store all my Apples to Ziti and family photos on it. Nothing like a lost camera card to put a food blog at a stand still. All that cooking, all those pictures, all that time… I was so sad to report that we would have no final “E is for Egg” recipe and just a couple (if any) “F” recipes. But I don’t have to report that!

Here is my “Egg Ending” as I’ve chosen to call it: Egg Casserole

I couldn’t finish a series of recipes on eggs without including an egg casserole… classic and usually budget-friendly!
