Turkey & Bacon Panini

Sandwiches are without a doubt one of the easiest things to make, in my opinion, and the options are limitless.  I'll admit that my husband and I are pretty plain when it comes to our food because neither of us really like condiments too much, but even without condiments it's easy to make a flavorful sandwich.  Another thing I love about sandwiches is that they're great for lunch or dinner, or even to cut in to small pieces for a few people to snack on, or appetizers for a group.  

I get a lot of my sandwich ideas from commercials and restaurants/cafes where I've seen or had something that I know I can replicate, and often times make it a little less fattening if I saw the sandwich on a commercial.  Such as this sandwich, inspired from a Jack in the Box commercial for the Turkey, Bacon and Cheddar Grilled Sandwich.  I admit it - I LOVE Jack in the Box - but I'm a spicy chicken bites fan.

Turkey & Bacon Club Panini
Ingredients:
1 loaf French bread, or other favorite artisan bread
~ 3/4 lb. thin sliced Roast Turkey
4-6 slices White Cheddar Cheese
6-8 slices bacon, cooked
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan Cheese

Directions:
Cut the loaf of bread horizontally in the center to open, but not separate

Layer the turkey across one half of the open loaf, topping with White Cheddar slices, then bacon.  Finish it all off with an even sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Place bread loaf on a non-stick cookie sheet and cook in heated oven about 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is golden.

Remove from oven and "close" the loaf of bread.  Slice the baguette in to 4-sections, or as many as desired.  Serve warm.

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my! But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?   Check !  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do !  Pumpkin?  Well of course !  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try! One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix
