Black Forest Cake: Semi-Homemade

Posted on August 29, 2008. Filed under: Cakes |

Bake a devil’s food cake mix as directed in a 9×13-inch pan. When it’s done baking, remove the cake from the oven and use the end of a wooden spoon to poke some holes across the top. Mix together one can of cherry pie filling with 1 teaspoon of almond extract. Then, while the cake is still warm, pour the cherry mixture evenly over the top, allowing it to absorb.

Prepare one package of instant vanilla pudding as directed on the box. Mix the pudding with a thawed 8-ounce container of frozen whipped topping and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Once the cake is cooled, frost with the pudding mixture and decorate with chocolate sprinkles if desired. Chill until ready to serve.

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

Posted on August 28, 2008. Filed under: Beef, Lunch, Main Dish, Sandwiches |

1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 pound ground sirloin
1 softball-sized onion, chopped
1 1 bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
Salt and ground black pepper
4 dinner rolls
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup provolone, shredded

Preheat broiler. In large skillet over medium-high heat with 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, brown the ground sirloin, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion and pepper and cook another 3-4 minutes, until the onions start to get tender. Stir in the steak sauce and beef stock, season with salt and pepper, bring up to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.

Split open rolls and toast under broiler; keep your eye on them so they don’t burn!

While the meat is cooking, melt the butter in a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in milk, bring up to a bubble and let thicken, about 2 minutes. Turn off heat and stir the cheese in a figure-eight motion until it is all incorporated. To serve, place a scoop full of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the rolls, then top with some of the cheese mixture. Place the top of the roll.
