There are plenty of reasons to celebrate this fall. With the holiday season creeping up ever closer and football season well under way, we bet you’re scrambling to find the perfect party appetizer to bring along. Who knows? Maybe you’ve already got your standard dish, and you’re just looking to shake things up! We’ve pooled together our resources and found the perfect bring-along recipe for each of your upcoming events.
I come from a family that likes to eat (no kidding!), so it’s no wonder why I find that many of my favorite childhood memories involve food in some way or another. In fact, I thank food for bringing my family together. I don’t think we ever talked as much as we did when we all came together to have dinner. To this day, I value the tradition of having dinner as a family, no matter how busy everyone’s schedules may be.

If you like late-night pancakes, and a before-bed plate of steaming scrambled eggs and freshly cooked bacon strips, then you, my friend, are a fan of brinner. What is brinner you ask? It’s simple! Brinner is breakfast for dinner, and if you’re anything like me, then brinner is something that happens at least a few times a month.
One of the reasons why I like to have breakfast for dinner so often is that it’s easy. In fact, I do brinner on nights when I really just don’t feel up to cooking. I had one of those nights not too long ago… Continue reading

I think I’ve been excited for fall flavors ever since the spring. There’s just something about throwing on a cozy sweater and snuggling up with a mug of warm apple cider that makes everything else in the world just fall into place. Growing up, I always loved our weekend family outings to the small local apple orchard just outside of town. I’d dart in and out between the trees, standing on my tiptoes to try to reach that one dangling fruit that always seemed to be just out of reach. We’d bring home way too many, and I’d happily munch on apples with peanut butter with my lunch every day.
Now that I’m old enough to know how to use an oven safely, I’m in awe at the sheer variety of apple recipes at my disposal. Unfortunately, being an apple chef is not my full-time job, so I’m forced to pick and choose which recipes to make and which to save for next year. I’m starting to think that making a homemade Twister-style spinner might be the only way to choose fairly.

When I was first interviewed here at the Mr. Food Test Kitchen, one of the questions I was asked was, “What is your favorite food?” Now, if you love food as much as I do, this is a tough question. I wanted to say “EVERYTHING!”, but I didn’t want to look like a total gluttonous nut, so I answered, “Sandwiches.” Looking back, I’m glad this was my answer because I really do think that sandwiches are fantastic. In fact, I think that by saying sandwiches I covered “everything,” because what CAN’T you make into a sandwich?
Since August is National Sandwich Month, and because it’s also back-to-school season, I figured I’d share some great sandwich recipes I found on MrFood.com. I’m pretty sure there’s a sandwich out there for everyone, and I’d like to make it my job to make as many of you into sandwich lovers as possible!
