Romance and Recipes--Mom's Sausage and Peppers

sausagepeppers


My mom is famous for a few meals (lasagna, meatballs, and her sausage and peppers).  Whenever we had big parties, my mom would whip up a batch of this and it would be gone almost immediately.  It actually got to the point that my dad was able to tell his bosses that he was getting their work parties catered when in reality my mom was doing all the cooking.  I honestly don't know how they believed this when my mom would send him to work with lasagna for him and his friends for lunch when we had enough left over.  Anyway, I emailed my mom and asked her for her sausage and peppers recipe to share with my readers.  She was only too happy to help.


Keep in mind that this is a recipe that should be made 24 hours ahead of time, so the sausages can soak up the juices from the peppers and onions.


Ingredients:


1 package of 14 sausages (preferably Sweet Italian sausages)

2 large green bell peppers

2 large red bell peppers

1 large onion (more if you're a fan of onions)


Directions:


1. Cut peppers into strips (remember to hit the top of the pepper on the cutting board) and slice the onions.  Put the sausages, peppers, and onions in a pot of water.  Once it boils remove it from the fire, taking the peppers and onions out and putting them in a separate bowl without water.



2. Put the sausages in a frying pan and put a small slit in them.  Pour some of the water into the frying pan, turning them every 15 minutes, adding water from the pot when needed (if you hear them sizzle, you need to add more water).  After the last of the water is used watch the sausages closer and listen to hear them call you (this is how Mom refers to the sizzling sound the sausages make when they need more water).  Once they are a golden brown remove them and place them in a pan.  (You can cut them into 3 diagonal pieces or keep them whole.  I prefer them cut up because (1) it looks prettier (2) people can take as much or as little as they want and (3) it is easier to make this into a sandwich.)



3. Put the peppers & onions over the sausages.  Cover with aluminum foil and place in refrigerator over night so the juices mingle together.




4. Next day cook in oven at 350 for 1-2 hours.  Enjoy

  2. […] my favorite novella in this anthology.  The characters are fun and their chemistry sizzles like my mom’s sausages.  The thing that stood out for me about them is that they actually change each other.  Lily is […]

Review of "The Other Miss Bridgerton" by Julia Quinn

Title: The Other Miss Bridgerton
Author: Julia Quinn
Series: Rokesby #3
Publisher: Avon
Price: $6.99 (e-book) $5.77 (mass market paperback) $21.55 (Audible)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 I love Julia Quinn.  A few years ago, I stumbled upon Just Like Heaven in the Howard Beach library; I'd heard of Ms. Quinn before, but hadn't actually read one of her books.  Immediately after finishing the book, Marcus and Honoria became one of my favorite hero/heroine pairings ever.  I'm probably going to be diving back into the Smythe-Smith books again soon because despite reading all of the Bridgerton books, the Smythe-Smith series is still my absolute favorite Quinn series.  The Rokesby series is giving it a run for its money, though (I've read Because of Miss Bridgerton at least four times since it was published in 2016).  Is it wrong that I want another book already?  Sure, The Other Miss Bridgerton came out just last week, but one is never enough, right?

I guess it is that time of year again--it is finally acceptable to listen to Christmas music on repeat!  Yes!  Unfortunately, I read this book in October and was getting a lot of weird looks when people heard snippets of Shake Up Christmas.  Honestly, this wasn't the earliest I've listened to Christmas music.  That honor goes to my review of Snowfall on Haven Point for the Smart Bitches, which I wrote in the middle of one of the worst heat waves in Northern California back in June of 2017.  But you're not here for a recitation of my Christmas music woes, so let's do this thing.

It's Not Me; It's You--A Review of "Shelter in Place" by Nora Roberts

Over the last few years, I have found myself reading fewer Nora Roberts novels.  In the past, she was my go-to author, an auto-buy, someone I knew whose work would never disappoint me.  Unfortunately, this is no longer the case.  While her prose is still beautiful and effortlessly depicts all manner of situations, her stories have become stale (recycling plots from other books is a big part of my problem with her) and it seems that she is less inclined to writing actual romances.  I was actually really excited about Shelter in Place because it wasn't like anything else I've read by her--and that sounded like a good thing.  What I got was a book that wasn't really sure what it was or what it wanted to be.

Happy Bookaversary! A Review of "Edge of Darkness" by Karen Rose

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


It seems like I've been reading Karen Rose novels my entire life.  I remember the day I came across Count to Ten in the Duane Reade on Queens Blvd.  I'd finished the paperback I brought with me to school that day while sitting in the Dining Hall eating lunch and needed something for the long bus ride home.  I almost didn't buy it because it was $9.99 and I hadn't gotten my financial aid money yet, but the cover copy called to me.  Not even the 500+ page count could scare me away.

I recently learned that Edge of Darkness is Ms. Rose's 20th book and in a strange way, I feel like a proud mama watching her child cross the stage to get their diploma.  I'm just a big ball of happy nostalgia, thinking back to all of the other books I've read by her and hopeful about the ones to come, so befor…

Fifteen Years Later: Review of "His Sinful Touch" by Candace Camp

Most readers remember their first, the first book of their particular genre that they read, whether they enjoyed the book or not.  I have two firsts--the first romance I ever read was a Harlequin Intrigue written by Amanda Stevens.  If you've read my blog before you probably already know this.  The first historical romance I read was Mesmerized by Candace Camp, which was also the first book in her Mad Morelands series.  

I was a senior in high school when this series began and I remember seeing the paperback version of Mesmerized on the shelf at the Target on Queens Blvd (yes, I spent a lot of time on Queens Blvd as a teenager), and was pulled in by the gorgeous cover.  Apparently, that book has had several covers over the last 15 years, but this is the one I remember:


Isn't it pretty?  Of course from the cover I…
