Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes


I really think sloppy joes might be one of Rob's favorite quick dinners. I like them too, but sometimes I just wish I could change them up a bit. Enter these Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes. I have literally had these pinned for over 2 years, and like many things I pin, I took my dear sweet time trying them. It's not like I didn't want to, and it's not like I never thought about them, but when I decided to do sloppy joes for dinner, I just stuck with my regulars.

Occasionally I join in on a Recipe Swap on a cooking board I'm on, and when I was assigned A Taste of Home Cooking, I pretty much immediately said "Yes, now I have zero excuse to ignore the Philly Sloppy Joes". I regret not making these sooner; you know, like 2 years ago when I first saw them! And remember when I said that I stick to my regular sloppy joes?  Well, these may be my new regular!  I personally liked these a lot more than "normal", and they were easier!  Almost as easy as opening a can!

Next time I make them I'd love to try them with the cheese sauce, but this time I wasn't thinking!


Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
Ingredients:1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 softball-sized onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped (optional - I omitted)
1 lb. ground beef

1/2 cup beef stock
Salt and Pepper
4 rolls or buns (toasted)
Cheese sauce (Below), sliced Provolone or Cheez Wiz

Directions:
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil.  Add the onion and green peppers if using, and cook until soft and starting to brown.

Add the ground beef and cook about 5-6 minutes, draining off the fat when finished.

Stir in the steak sauce and beef stock.  Season with salt & pepper, bring to a boil and cook about 2 minutes.

To serve -  place a scoopful of the meat onto the bottom of the rolls or buns.  Top with cheese and/or whatever condiments you prefer, and top of bun.


Cheese SauceIngredients:
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon flour
1 cup of milk
1 cup of provolone, shredded

Directions:
Melt the butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, bring to a boil and let thicken for about 2 minutes.  Turn off heat and stir in cheese.

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

Foodbuzz 24x24: A Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party

It's hard to believe that my baby boy is technically no longer a baby anymore!  It seems like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck on our way to the hospital, and now all of a sudden I'm planning a birthday party! Even before Ty was born though, I knew I wanted to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar party.  I'm not exactly sure what made me think of it, but one day I was sitting in his room and imagining reading him the first book I bought for him.  Yep - The Very Hungry Caterpillar ! There is something about the classic children's book that lends itself very well to entertaining.  Generally speaking, the focal point of any event (aside from the reason for celebration), is the food.    For those not familiar with the book -  The Hungry Caterpillar is all about food!  He eats is way through many different foods, until he's big and strong and becomes a beautiful butterfly.  A perfect metaphor for a young baby.  It's amazing how much such a little guy can eat - but
