Our Cookbook Blog
Our Cookbook ~ What We Cook, is a compilation of every recipe we (Janice and Carissa) cook - recipes from our cookbook collections, our recipe boxes, and our heads! We set up this blog for friends and family who have our cookbook to let them see pictures we post of the recipes in the book, and also for us to note any corrections, revisions, or additions to What We Cook. We encourage people who are cooking our recipes to let us know how the recipes turn out and any suggestions they might want to make.
In addition, we will be sharing some of our new recipes (along with pictures) that are not in our cookbook. We hope you will help us out and test recipes and give us your comments.

Chicken Focaccia Sandwiches ~ page 64
My family is temporarily living in a small 2 bedroom apartment for 5 months while my husband is stationed in a different city for "temporary duty". We brought the minimum when it came to everything, so we're working with all kitchen supplies that were available from the family services loan locker on base. My main concern with lacking kitchen supplies was that I wanted to make sure I was still able to make most of the recipes in this cookbook, since it is the ONLY cookbook I brought with me. I am pleased to announced that it hasn't hindered me yet.
This recipe was great! I actually modified it just by toasting it in the the (borrowed) George Foreman grill to make it into a panini. I was very pleased with the results. I also added avacado the 2nd time I made it and I loved it even more, but I've yet to find a recipe that avacado doesn't improve. :-)
I will miss my kitchen aid mixer (among many other things), but I did manage to fit my fancy blender into the back of the van. I'm so glad I did! I knew I would need it to make baby food and many of your delicious sauces and dressings in the cookbook.
Here is what my red pepper sauce looked like:
