My Cousin “Panini”


What a great movie (okay it’s supposed to be “Vinny”…what’evs!). I love love love sandwiches. Honestly, I think I could eat them everyday.

Certain ingredients just beg to be put between two slices of bread! Sometimes I just open up the fridge and voila, there are the ingredients to a delicious sandwich, staring me right in the face.

The other day I just happen to have the following in my fridge…hummus, feta cheese, chile n’ spice grilled chicken, fresh basil and some roasted red peppers– ah yes please!

Talk about a party…every bite was like a celebration of awesome ingredients. I know you may think I am exaggerating but I was in heaven!

Now, I know not everyone is a “sandwich person”, in fact, I even know some people who don’t even really like sandwiches (gasp!)…but I am curious are you a sandwich person? And if so, what’s your favorite?

buen appetito – and happy sandwiching!

Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich


The other day we were on set and we were talking about sandwiches. I was talking about peanut butter and banana sandwiches for some reason, and Daniela (one of our camera people/editor/super woman) said she had never had, or even heard of a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

This could be because she is originally from Mexico. Instead she grew-up eating things like fresh corn tortillas with chorizo and avocado. Even though now-a-days, I would much rather have those tortillas and chorizo, there is still something about a peanut butter and banana sandwich. I may eat them only once a year, but that first bit sure is good. My version is a bit different than it was when I was a kid, as I use fresh whole grain bread instead of white bread. I also use organic fresh peanut butter (or sometimes almond butter), but the feeling I get sure does take me back to being a kid. I even eat it the same way…around the edges first…saving the very center for the last bite.

Since that day on set, I made a peanut butter and banana sandwich for Daniela, she said it was good…better than she thought even. But I am pretty sure she hasn’t had one since then :-)

Are you a peanut butter and banana sandwich lover? My brother-in-law likes his with cheese instead of the bananas…I never did get used to that one. My mom used to eat, thick sliced raw onions and jam sandwiches…yuck!

What takes you back to your “after school snack”, maybe it’s a bologne sandwich on wonderbread with French’s mustard? Come on share…we won’t judge you.

Ciao for now, dawn

P.S. –  After much talk about sandwiches, I couldn’t help but think (and make and eat) of one of my favorite “after school” sandwiches. For about a year, I used to eat this sandwich everyday after school.  The pickles are what made it, of course back then they were not petite cornichon, they were Bicks!
