Impossible to resist

A little piece of heaven
A couple of days ago, I was asked how I would prepare a sandwich of “epic” proportions.

The question was so funny, and the world “epic” so interesting, that I just couldn’t avoid the temptation of answering the question, and of course, preparing the very same sandwich afterwards.

My dreamed sandwich was made with thick slices of European bread made with olives, several slices of smoked ham, some regular pork ham, a couple of gruyere cheese slices, mozzarella and Philadelphia cheese, basil leaves, tomato and avocado slices, mayonnaise, some salt and pepper, and olive oil drops.

When all of it was ready, I grilled it for some minutes, just enough time for the cheeses to melt down and the bread to turn crispy.

Unfourtunately I didn’t take any pictures of my creation, because as soon as I finished it, I got so happy and hungry that I started eating it immediately.

Then, after I finished it, this delicious experience made me think of one of my favorite cooking books: Rachel Ray’s look + cook.

I’ve been a fan of Rachel Ray’s cooking programs for a long while, so I totally had to have this book that contains 100 of her most famous recipes, plus another 125 new recipes. All of them designed to be prepares in 30 minutes.

It was with this book that I learned how to prepare another amazing sandwich of “epic” proportions, this one is called “Meatball sub”. I tried it once and it was absolutely delicious. So much that I still remember how great it was.

Of course, the book contains so many more ideas that go from Italian pasta, to hamburgers, chicken, steaks and vegetables. So, even if you’re not feeling like cooking one day, just by going through the recipes is a great way to get in a fantastic mood and getting into cooking again.

Happy meals!
