My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Italian Sausage & Bell Peppers

{ Prep time: 15 mins / Cooking time: 25 mins / Yields: 4-5 servings }

1 large red onion, quartered 
2 large red bell peppers 
2 large yellow or orange bell peppers
12 oz artichokes (in olive oil)
Olive oil 
2 tsp Italian seasoning 
5 chicken or turkey sausage links*
Salt & pepper, to taste
Olive oil cooking spray 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray, and set aside. Wash peppers and remove seeds, then cut into quarters. Cut the onion into quarters as well. Put all the sliced veggies into a bowl, lightly drizzle with olive oil (I used just enough so the seasoning would stick), then sprinkle with the dry Italian seasoning. Toss until all veggies are evenly coated.
2. Arrange veggies in a single layer on your prepared sheet, then season with salt & pepper. Roast for 15 mins. Remove from oven and stir veggies, then roast for 10 more mins. 
3. Meanwhile, brush a frying pan with olive oil. Set heat to medium and start to brown the sausages. Cook for 15-18 mins, until sausages are nicely browned and heated through. *If you are using pre-made sausages, cooking time will be reduced to 10 mins. 
4. Slice the sausages on the diagonal and toss with the veggies.
