Kobes white sauce copycat

Kobes White Sauce (copycat)

This is the homemade Kobes white sauce recipe that I have tried and liked to use with my Kobe’s copycat dinner recipe whenever we didn’t have the actual sauce from the restaurant on hand.  Continue reading

Basil Cashew Chicken Salad

Basil Cashew Chicken Salad

A few years ago, when I worked for a telecommunications company located just outside of College Park, I really loved to grab lunch at a little place called Roly Poly. This will sound way cheesy, but it was there that I fell in love with the #30 (also known as their Basil Cashew Chicken salad cold rolled sandwich).

A Review: Sea Thai Orlando

Recently, I had to go to an all morning training for work. On the way to my office, I really wanted to pick up lunch and I ended up stopping at Sea Thai. Continue reading

Buffalo Wild Wings has a cool vibe. The location we went to is huge and features more than a dozen television screens all showing different sports and news channels. This was a fun place to
have lunch and all the staff was friendly and we will definitely go again.

As soon as you enter, you follow a path towards the register and place your order. After you do you are free to choose where you want to sit and someone comes to take your drink order. When it’s all ready, they bring it to you.

Here’s an indoor view of the location we went to
All of the booths and chairs have their logo carved into them

I ordered my wings with the sauce (they have 20 sauce/seasoning options by the way!) on the side (controlling your sauce instead of ordering them drenched is always my preferred option). I also got carrot sticks on the side with ranch – Yum!

Looking forward to our next visit – these wings were good. I can make better tasting ones at home, but their sauce selection is great and I enjoyed our lunch here.

Every single time I go to Firehouse Subs I place the same order. Two years ago, I had noted that this was my favorite sub place and I (for some odd reason) still had not made a blog post about it (until now).

Firehouse Subs is a franchise I discovered two or three years ago in Orlando and ever since I’ve favored it among the rest. It was here that I was introduced to my favorite hot sauce called “Burnin’ Love” after Elvis’ song released in 1972. I keep a bottle at home and add to my homemade sandwiches, rice and beans, chicken, and more. There are plenty of others to choose from – the counter has about fifty options for sauce and most are also available for sale. I try to bring mine when we go because it is not always available.

You may not know this but I LOVE listening to Elvis; “Love me tender” is one of my favorite songs to set on my phone’s alarm clock. (Photo credit hotsauceworld.com).

The YouTube video of this song is below.

My sandwich always tastes the same. This franchise has it right in that, no matter where you go, your favorite will stay your favorite because it doesn’t change. The ingredients in the sandwich and my add-ons are in the photo below.

Mmm… can’t wait to go again! (try to do so at least once a month).

Tonight, I made a meal that satisfies just about anyone – adults and children alike.

Spaghetti and meatballs. I made the meatballs myself with ground beef. I placed a couple online recipes in the related links section of my post. I do not yet have a set recipe I use for us. To be completely honest – I just wing it! haha

 Step 1: Mayo.
Only on one side and enough to not see 90% of the pores in the slice of bread.

Step 2: Cold cuts. NEVER put cheese over mayo. I do not like that and CAN notice if I were eating my sandwich. It makes the cheese chewy in a different way. The wrong way. HAM is always first.

Step 3: Turkey and/or other meats can go in any order as long as HAM is directly on the mayo. See I’m not THAT difficult 🙂


Step 4: Cheese. I prefer Swiss cheese. My second choice is provologne. I’m not really a big fan of American cheese unless it’s for grilled cheese sandwiches. But that’s a whole different post.


Step 5: Sometimes I don’t want lettuce on my sandwich. Only if I’m in the mood for a “big” sandwich.

Step 6: Same thing here. I only use tomatoes in a sandwich if I’m having lettuce in a “big” sandwich OR if I’m having a tomato and mayo sandwich – which is quite good!

Step 7: Top. When having a big sandwich I like to add salt & pepper and sometimes oil & vinegar. In this case I left out the liquids and just put the second slice of bread and cut in half. I prefer squares because I feel triangles should be just for grilled cheese. Or any sandwich made for a kid.

Below are a couple pictures: 1 shows all the ingredients I use at once and how a sandwich SHOULD REALLY be made! And the other is of a Boar’s Head oil/vinegar based sauce that I found I only like with roast beef sandwiches. It has a dry pickled taste to it. I don’t have any other way of describing it. But it’s good.
