I have always been a fan of Johnsonville sausage and I loved preparing this month’s AllStar’s assignments for Johnsonville!!!  I bet I make a recipe using sausage at least once a week!

My husband is a huge fan of sausage as well, and I love making him breakfast in bed on the weekends, and let me tell you, we both LOVED these egg and sausage muffins…plus they are adorable!

We were hosting a football party with a few of our friends this month, so I decided to try these Garlic and Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms recipe using Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausages.  I followed this recipe to a T….and they were a huge hit, even though my team lost L

I am a big fan of making delicious recipes for my family almost every night, which can be hard on week nights…but this recipe sure did not disappoint me or my family, it was fabulous!  Bowties with Italian Sausage in a Cream Basil Sauce, topped with shredded Parmesan Reggiano cheese!

But hands down this recipe has to be my ALL TIME FAVORITE recipe with Sausage, probably my favorite recipe on allrecipes site!!!  I always use Johnsonville Hot Italian sausage to give this sauce the perfect kick!  I like to make this recipe for a romantic dinner on the weekend with my husband!

I also can’t wait to try Chili Sausage Swap this month!!!!  I’m so exicted for this:<

About Me
I have grown up with an appreciation for food, my Dad was a head chef and owned his own restaurant. I can remember at the age of 8, eating frogs legs and him telling me it was chicken...and I didn't know the difference! He always had me and my sister at least try what he was making, even if he knew we wouldn't like it. Well his love for cooking has definitely rubbed off on me. I find I am the happiest when I am in my kitchen cooking something wonderful for my family and friends. Everyone thinks cooking is so hard, but really it is one of those things that the more you do it, the better you get at it. There is nothing more satisfying for me then to hear, "Oh my gosh, that was so did you make that"! I only hope I can have the same influence now on my son that my father had on me.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook spicy foods, especially Cajun or Creole, my signature dish is Cajun Jambalaya. I make a pretty tasty Mexican lasagna as well. I am just learning how to make my own bread. I find there is something really special about making fresh homemade bread from your own hands, getting the yeast to rise, kneading it, and watching it rise!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite time of year to cook is the holidays, everyone is so festive! My parents have a Christmas Eve drop in every year, and I spend the entire day cooking with my Dad helping him prepare! I also love baking Christmas cookies, spending the entire weekend baking and listening to Christmas music...this past year it even snowed! As for starting my own cooking tradition, well that has been baking family birthday cakes from scratch. I never really thought of myself as a baker, but after making a few birthday cakes it has now become expected in my family….and I love it, it’s much more personal! I’d actually get my feelings hurt now if they wanted a store bought cake!
My cooking triumphs
Well I have to say my biggest cooking triumph has been a Tiramisu Cheesecake, it was the first cheesecake I ever made...and let me just say, it was THE BEST I have ever had...I even impressed my Dad!
My cooking tragedies
Hands down...homemade pasta! I tried to make a fresh spinach pasta for a seafood dish, and it turned out to be a gross, green, sticky, pile of dough! I wont even attempt to make my own pasta again!
