Shakshuka: A Template for Breakfast, Dinner, and Every Meal in Between

We're Italian and this has been a style of dish we've cooked for *years*, I never knew it was anything else until I started hearing about shakshuka. We don't use all the spices, but I like to add onions, salami, lots of red pepper flakes(or fresh hot peppers) and usually left over tomato sauce. Makes for a fantastic dish. We've always called it Eggs in hell/purgatory.

I'll have to try this with all the extra spices. Sounds amazing.

Step-by-Step: The Secret to Perfect Snowball Cookies Is Double-Dipping

My Mom died 20 years ago and one of the things I never got to ask her(and I don't remember, I was younger then) was how soon to get started. We're 2 weeks out and I'm only going to start this weekend. Other people have told me I could start late November/early December and the cookies would last, but that just seems way to early.

On topic, I'll be adding this recipe to this years batch of cookies. :D

Order a Sloppy Joe in Jersey and You Won't Find Ground Beef

I moved up to NJ from DC(my home for 32 years) last year and when I was chatting with the Verizon man I was asking him what I needed to do/eat up here.

He gave me three things 1) sloppy joe from Town Hall, 2) A taylor ham, egg and cheese on everything bagel and 3) Hot dogs from some place whose name slips me.

I remember explaining myself to the person at Town Hall and said I don't know how a sloppy joe can have roastbeef and turkey. He just laughed and told me I'd be surprised.

We got this right after we got married( and my in-laws told me it was the only way to make lechon. I'll admit it works fantastically, but sometimes I just want to deep fry it.

It's a smidgen more work, but it makes a huge difference imo.
