The Poorman's Meal #Sponsored by OXO

A few weeks ago I talked about how to regrow green onions using nothing but leftover onions, a glass, and some water. It's a great way to stretch things a little further in kitchen and hardly requires any work at all. Today I thought it was time for my next tip: how to reduce kitchen waste, especially from produce that isn't being used up quickly enough.

Let's face it, we've all been there. Sometimes you have an over abundance of food from the garden or a recent shopping trip and sometimes you just plain forgot you had something and it's starting to look a little sorry. I frequently find myself in this situation, so every other week I make a dish I've always known as The Poorman's Meal. I'm sure it has a billion and one other names, but that's what I've always known it as, so we'll just keep the name for now (even though it's probably not politically correct.)

This dish consists of whatever odds and ends I have on hand that are starting to get old. In our case it's usually some really wrinkly bell peppers, onions and potatoes that have started sprouting, and the last sausage in the package that I've forgotten to use up. The nice thing about this meal is that there is no recipe. I've seen it made with green beans and bacon instead of sausage and peppers, you just toss whatever leftovers you have in a skillet, cook them up, and season it with a little salt, pepper, and garlic. This meal couldn't possibly be easier and it's a great way to reduce your kitchen waste while spending only a trivial amount of time actually cooking. 

Don't forget to keep reading after the recipe for a quick review of a great tool from OXO that will help you on your quest to reduce waste in your kitchen.

The Poorman's Meal
makes approximately 3 servings

Ingredients

1 tablespoon salted butter
1 large potato, cut into ¼ inch thick slices
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 small onion, sliced
6 - 8 ounces sausage (I use Andouille)
sea salt, black pepper, and garlic, to taste

Directions

  • In a saucepan melt butter. Add sliced potato, bell pepper, onion, and sausage. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, flip the potatoes so they brown on both sides, then cook for an additional 10 - 15 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Season with sea salt, black pepper and garlic powder before serving.

Notes

If you find you're out of one of the ingredients listed, try substituting the missing ingredient for something you do have. I've seen this made in a number of different ways and it's always been tasty. If you want a real treat, trying making it with maple sausage links instead of the andouille, fry or scramble some eggs, then serve it as breakfast for dinner. This is one of those meals that's tasty any time of the day.

OXO Chef's Mandoline 2.0 | Not Starving Yet

Review

 

OXO Good Grips Chef's Mandoline Slicer 2.0:

When I talk about reducing waste in the kitchen the first thing that springs to mind for most people is food waste. The simple truth is this: most people toss a good portion of the groceries they purchase each week. Often times it's leftovers that have gone uneaten or produce that has spoiled before it could be used. This translates into a lot of money that goes straight into the landfill. This wasted food and money is one of the reasons I make sure to incorporate dishes like the poor mans's meal into our menu rotation frequently—it cuts down on one form of the waste I frequently see in our kitchen.

Now I want to give you a little food for thought—food isn't the only thing that people waste when they're cooking. Time is another thing that is frequently wasted, but it's not something most people stop to consider.

If you're anything like me then you've probably wasted plenty of time standing at the fridge wondering what to cook. You've also likely wasted time searching for missing ingredients in your disorganized pantry or making last-minute trips to the store because you've discovered half way through a recipe you're missing a key ingredient. Anyone who has cooked a meal has been there, but what you may not realize is that you've also been wasting time by using tools that aren't quite up to the job at hand. This may sound like common sense, but having the right tool for the job can save a lot of time and that extra 15 minutes you save by using a more efficient tool can make the difference between a home cooked meal and ordering takeout for the third night in a row because you're too tired to cook.

That said, I've actually been a naysayer when it comes to using some of these time-saving tools in my kitchen. I don't have a large kitchen, so every tool I own needs to be a multi-tasker and it needs to perform well. To date I've not had a good experience with using a mandoline as the one I've own for years is a bit of a heath-hazard. The blade is always falling out and at one point took a huge chunk out of my hand that resulted in a trip to urgent care. Early in our marriage my poor husband came home to an unlocked apartment with a trail of blood leading clear across it, then discovered I was no where to be found. I was at urgent care receiving nearly 15 stitches while he wondered how an axe murdered got into the apartment.

After that I tucked the mandoline away and went back to using a knife, which works well for most tasks, but it's not always the most efficient way to cut up a huge pile of potatoes or vegetables (especially if you want them thinly and evenly sliced.) 

When OXO offered to send me the new version of their chef's mandoline I was curious to see how it differed from the model I had from their competition. The first change I noticed is that the blades are permanently stored in the mandoline, you'll still need to slide them out to adjust the type of cut you want, straight or crinkle, but they're locked in to place firmly and won't fall out. Even fine-tuning the thickness of your slices is simple—there's a red slider bar that adjusts in 0.5-mm intervals allowing a paper thin cut or something thicker like I used for today's recipe. You can even make julienne, waffle, and French fry cuts with the turn of a knob. The easy adjustment knob and the blades that stay put solved the two biggest pet peeves I had when using a mandoline. It was incredibly easy to set the thickness I want and produce a pile of potatoes that were uniform in size and therefore cooked evenly.

A mandoline may not be for everyone, but there are certain times when using one is much faster—especially if you have a huge pile of potatoes, zucchini, squash, or onions that you need to cut into uniform slices. If you find yourself performing this task on a regular basis, then it's definitely a time saving tool you may want to consider for your kitchen.

Get a Slice of This: Hawaiian Pizza #Sponsored by OXO

Before sitting down to develop today's recipe I took a poll among friends, family, and random strangers (because I'm that weird person who talks to everyone I stumble across in life.) What I wanted to determine was which pizza toppings were most popular. I was pretty sure that my favorite combination—roasted red pepper, mushroom, caramelized onion, and pesto—wasn't going to make the list. What I wasn't prepared for was the sheer number of people who like pineapple on their pizza.

And to think I was so sure pepperoni was going to be the winner. 

I never stopped to consider that pineapple could be a pizza topping, much less one with such a cult following. The other surprising thing was how consistent people were with their pairings: ham or Canadian bacon with nary a vegetable in sight. I felt like there was a little room to improve upon everyone's idea of the perfect Hawaiian pizza, which is how today's recipe came about. The pairing of home made pizza dough, a simple tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh pineapple, hickory smoked honey ham, and a sprinkling of red onion makes for a mouth-watering combination that you absolutely have to try.

Don't forget to keep reading after the recipe for a quick review of some great tools from OXO that will help you on your quest to make the perfect pizza at home.

Hawaiian Pizza


makes two14 inch pizzas + extra sauce


 

Ingredients

 

for the sauce

28 ounce can of San Marzano whole peeled tomatoes
1 teaspoon sea salt, or more to taste

for the dough

1⅛ cup water + additional tablespoon, as necessary (see notes)
2¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
1 pinch sugar
3 cups King Arthur Bread Flour + additional 1/4 cup
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

toppings (double if making two pizzas)

½ cup pizza sauce
1 eight ounce ball of fresh mozzarella, sliced
½ cup fresh pineapple, cut into 1 inch chunks
2 slices hickory smoked honey ham
⅛ cup red onion, thinly sliced
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, or more to taste

Directions

 

for the sauce

  • In a food processor, combine whole peeled tomatoes with their juices and sea salt. Pulse 4 - 6 times until the tomatoes are broken up, but still slightly chunky. Taste the sauce and add more salt as needed, then use immediately or refrigerate for up to seven days.

for the dough

  • Fill a large glass measuring cup with 1⅛ cup water that is no warmer than 110°F. Add active dry yeast and a pinch of sugar, then stir until everything has dissolved completely. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes. Your mixture should be slightly bubbly.
  • In a large bowl add 3 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon sea salt, and the mixture of water, yeast, and sugar. Mix by hand until all of the ingredients are combined and the dough is sticky and somewhat shaggy looking. If the weather is cool and dry you may need to add additional warm water, so do it slowly, one tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together easily.
  • Set the mixing bowl in a warm spot, cover with a towel, and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
  • Dust your work surface with a small amount of flour, then place the dough on top. Knead it firmly and continue to dust with flour until you have a smooth ball of dough. Return the dough to the mixing bowl, cover with a towel, and let it rise on the counter for 2 hours at room temperature (approximately 70°F.)
  • Cut the dough into two equal size balls. If you don't plan on making two pizzas take a small amount of olive oil and coat the inside of a large plastic container, add the ball of dough, then cover and and refrigerate for several days.
  • Take the remaining ball of dough and slowly stretch it into a round, flat disk. If you're having difficulty with it keeping the shape you want or find it tears easily, let the dough rest briefly, then continue to shape the dough. You'll want a circle that is roughly 14 inches in size.
  • Move your oven rack to the lowest setting, then preheat the oven to 450°F

Now build your pizza...

  • Top the crust with pizza sauce and spread it evenly over the top of the pizza. Add slices of fresh mozzarella, pineapple chunks, ham, and onion. 
  • Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 13 - 15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned along the edges. Remove the pizza from the oven, allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting into slices. Top with a pinch or two of crushed red pepper flakes, then enjoy!

Notes


The extra sauce will keep in the refrigerator for about a week, but you can freeze the leftovers for up to three months that way you'll always have some on hand when you want to make pizza. I like to portion mine out into ½ cup containers so I only need to defrost what is needed to make a pizza.

For the sauce I'm partial to using Cento brand San Marzano tomatoes, but can use your favorite whole peeled tomatoes. If you decide to make this sauce using something other than San Marzano tomatoes you may want to add a pinch or two of sugar. San Marzano tomatoes are naturally sweet and less acidic than many other canned tomatoes you'll see on the shelves and the extra bit of sugar will help compensate for the added acidity.

If you have refrigerated one of your balls of dough leave it on the counter for an hour or two, until it has reached room temperature, before use. Once it has warmed up you can stretch it out to fit your pan. If you try to work with cold dough it won't stretch easily and may tear.

Review

 

OXO Good Grips Non-Stick Pro Pizza Pan: I've tried quite a few different methods of making pizza over the years and I'll fully admit to having a preference when it comes to the pan vs stone debate—I do love my pizza stone—but there are a number of instances where using a pan is flat out more convenient.

Most notable is the fact that the prep time for putting together a pizza decreases significantly because you don't need to wait an hour for the pizza stone to reach 450°F. This is great for those times when you want pizza in a hurry and even better when you don't want to warm the house up by keeping the oven on for long periods of time. I rarely make pizza in the summer because it means I'll have the oven on for at least 90 minutes, but by using a pan instead I'm down to 30 minutes tops. For those of you who live up North in the land where houses don't have air conditioners, this is a real plus.

The other thing I really like about this pan is that absolutely nothing sticks to it. This means I don't have to spend time after dinner scrapping off baked-on cheese or sauce, which is a common occurrence with my pizza stone. A quick wash with soap and water is all this pan needs, everything slides right off. The downside to this is that the pizza does tend to move around if I cut it directly on the pan, so I have to make sure I'm twice as careful while I'm slicing up my pizza.

OXO 4" Pizza Wheel and Cutter for Non-Stick Pans: I have an OXO Pizza Wheel that was given to me as a wedding gift and I absolutely love it. Over the past nine years it has sliced its way through hundreds of pizzas and still works great. So, being so highly satisfied with my current wheel I was curious to see how the plastic version that is designed for use with non-stick pans would hold up. I was a little skeptical at first, but it sliced right through my thick crust pizza without a problem and the cheese hardly stuck to it, something I can't say about my trusty metal pizza wheel. If you own a set of non-stick baking sheets or pizza pan this is definitely a piece of equipment you'll want to take a closer look at.

OXO Good Grips Complete Grate & Slice Set: Last but not least, I had a chance to try out OXO's Grate & Slice set, which couldn't have come at a better time. I have good knife skills, but I also have arthritis, so all this rainy weather we've been having has been making my hands ache. It's been difficult to hold on to my knife, but with the Slice & Grate's large handle I was able to produces perfectly uniform slices every single time, with hardly any effort. This nifty tool has been a real asset in the kitchen and it makes short work of putting together the perfect pizza or salad.

The four removable plates give you the option for a coarse or medium grate, as well the slicing surfaces that give a straight or julienne cut. Since the cutting surfaces are removable you have the option of slicing or grating directly over a bowl or you can use the bottom of the container to collect and measure your ingredients as you slice away. When you're done all the pieces, including the handle, fit inside the box. That means there is no chance you'll cut yourself as you're taking it out of the drawer, which is something I've done several times with the blades to my mandoline.

Whether you're just learning how to cook and haven't developed your knife skills yet or you're starting to find holding a knife is becoming increasingly difficult, this is one tool I'd definitely recommend you check out.

Pantry Organization & Spring Cleaning with OXO #Sponsored

Last month I decided to tackle a huge organizational project—my home office. This month I'm at it again, but it's our kitchen and pantry I'm hoping to get back in order.

It's been a while since I've given any thought to organizing my pantry. Way back in 2014 (as you can see from the photo below) it was a disorganized mess. Very little had changed over the past few years until I discovered that my laziness had finally caught up with me. I pulled out a bag of flour to bake my son a cake and found it full of weevils. They're those annoying little bugs that you find when you've left your flour sit too long.

Whoops!

I guess that means I should bake more cakes... or remember to put bay leaves in the bags... or maybe clean my pantry a bit more frequently?

Today's post was sponsored by OXO as part of the Spring Cleaning & Organizing with OXO blogger outreach campaign. They have provided me with a set of pop containers and cleaning tools for evaluation, but no other compensation was given for this post.

A not-so-quick cleanup got rid of them and fortunately they hadn't spread beyond my flour bin, but in the process I found a swarm of silverfish that had been making themselves right at home eating the glue that holds together my canning jar boxes.  I made it a priority to pull everything out, get rid any paper boxes, and put my bulk dry goods away properly. 

After that I ran out of steam...

By the time Spring rolled around you couldn't even tell I'd organized anything. I had tons bags hanging everywhere and no idea what was in them. When OXO reached out to me a few weeks ago about testing out their POP containers (and a few other goodies) I thought I'd give my pantry the proper cleaning it needed—starting with the bags of snacks and other one-off items I can never find a place for. Those are the things that tend to end up stuffed in grocery bags and hung from hooks, never to be heard from again.

Pantry Before

What I really like about the POP containers is the variety of options. Whether your shelves are large like mine or on the smaller side, you'll likely find one to suit your needs since they come in several different formats (square, rectangular, and round.) Since they can be stacked several high they'll accommodate a variety of shelf heights which is especially handy if you don't have adjustable height shelves in your pantry or kitchen cabinets. With the variety of shapes and sizes you'll be able to store your leftover bits and bobs just as easily as a 5lb package of flour.

Out of all the containers I've actually found the smaller sizes the most useful for reducing the clutter in my pantry. My half-eaten packages of nuts, chocolate, and granola fit in the 0.3 and 0.9qt containers perfectly, so I no longer have a bunch of open packages cluttering up my shelves. You can see from the photos how much of a difference moving my open packages of food to storage containers did to keep things more organized.

Where to Purchase

10-Piece POP Container Set: Find it on Amazon or purchase it directly from OXO

In addition to the POP containers I did add a few other items during my pantry reorganization to help make things more manageable. The first was a beverage organizer that holds 24 cans of soda. I decided this was necessary after I dropped a half-open case of soda during my pantry clean-out and had it explode all over everything.

Talk about a mess! 

I never want to clean that up again, so with the new organizer I know that my precious stash of Dr Pepper (that I use for making Dr Pepper Pulled Pork) isn't wasted when I have butter fingers.

The second addition was a set of command hooks running up both walls. These hold packages of tuna, spices, pre-made sauces, and other odd-sized items that have a hole punched in the top. This way they're easily accessible and I can quickly see what I need to restock without having to dig through the pantry.

IMG_7350.JPG

Now no organizational post would be complete without a little Spring cleaning thrown in for good measure. Fortunately OXO also sent me their new Microfiber Under Appliance Duster to help me get started. Let me just say that I've never had a kitchen tool terrify me as much as this one! It occurred to me recently that the last time I cleaned under my stove was when it was installed eight years ago. I'm pretty sure it's a disgusting wasteland under there, so I chickened out and have been using it to clean under our furniture instead.

The duster's long handle makes it perfect for fishing out all the toys and snacks that find their way under our couch. It's raised off the floor, so all sorts of things get lost under it. After the first pass I came away with a large collection of lost legos, balls, bits of play-doh, snacks, a few random socks, and a whole lot of salt, dirt, and cat hair. It's only been a month since I pulled the couch out to clean, so I can only imagine what I'll find when I work up the courage to clean under the stove. It's accumulated eight years of dirt and grime, so can you blame me for procrastinating?

On the plus side, the duster comes apart easily and cleans up with a quick wash in cold water, so once I'm brave enough to tackle the kitchen at least I won't have a lot of extra clean-up to do.

Where to Purchase

Last but not least is the OXO's Kitchen Appliance Cleaning Set. It's a handy set of nylon brushes and scrapers that helps you reach the hard to clean spaces in your kitchen. It's especially great and cleaning off all the burned-on crud that builds up around the burners on your stove, but I've also found it useful for cleaning around the sink and backsplash, or scraping off stubborn stuck-on food from stainless steel pots and pans. 

It has a lot of uses, so it's one tool that would be a valuable addition to any kitchen.

Getting Ready for 2016 with the Panda Planner #Sponsored

Product Review: The Panda Planner

It takes a lot of reflection and self-introspection to accomplish everything I hope to in my life, which is why I always start my day the same way—reflecting on what went right the day before and what may need to be changed for today. If the goal is something I'll struggle with, I write it down in the notebook I carry to reinforce the fact it's something I need to work on. I tend to take the same approach when it comes to work goals, reflecting on what I accomplished yesterday and what I need to improve on or accomplish today. Since I open my notebook multiple times a day to jot down recipe notes, memos, and other important information my goals are always staring back at me waiting to be checked off. 

It's a system that has served me well over the years, but this year it failed. We've had three major family emergencies back-to-back, so my attention has be focused on spending time with my family during these difficult times, rather than concentrating on my goals. Unfortunately this has caused me to drop the ball on more than one major project and miss countless deadlines—some of which I'm still struggling to catch up with. I've also lost sight of many of the things I've wanted to work on and improve this year both on the blog and in my personal life. 

There are still a few days left in 2015, so I decided to buy a planner and make a list of everything I didn't accomplish this year. Those will be the projects I tackle first in the new year—I want to start of 2016 completely caught up! 

I looked at a number of popular planners including Spark Notebook and Passion Planner, both of which have launched very successful Kickstarter campaigns this year, before I decided on the Panda Planner. It's a non-dated planner that is broken up into monthly, weekly, and daily sections. I love the non-dated format because very little of my life is scheduled on an hourly or even a daily basis—the standard format for most planners. I tend to work better with a weekly and monthly list of goals, but I do have a few days each week where a daily breakdown is crucial. Since I don't need a daily outlook on a regular basis using a standard dated planner leaves me with a lot of empty space and wasted paper. 

This planner is set up in such a manner that there is very little wasted space. It's well designed for someone who needs to keep a schedule on occasion, but may not need a planner every day, or who keeps a schedule that is very fluid (like a blogging calendar.) If you fall in to these two groups, I'd highly recommend this planner—non dated planners are they way to go for the occasional user. If you need more structure in your life or prefer a day-to-day planner, this isn't going to be the best option for your planning needs—it's not nearly large enough.

There aren't enough pages to get through 6 months worth of scheduling. This is something I feel is absolutely essential, although a full 12 months would be ideal. I'd love to see the page count bumped up a little so there were 12 monthly, 26 weekly, and 122 daily pages. The additional 86 pages would make this planner much more user-friendly, yet still keep it small enough to be convenient to carry. If you prefer the post-it note method of planning, where you write everything on post-its before adding it to your planner, you would get a full years worth of use with the added pages as long as you remove start over half way through the year. These changes, plus the addition of a pen loop, would go a long way towards making this a more usable planner.

Would I Purchase This Again? Not without a few minor changes. It is organized almost exactly the way I prefer to work, but there aren't nearly enough pages to make it useful to me on a long term basis.

Monthly -  One of my goals for 2015 was learning how to say no more often so I didn't overextend myself.   Having a monthly overview lets me see if I have space for a new project or if I need to turn it down. I use a 3 color post-it note system for my monthly outlook (Green for Blog, Yellow for personal, and Pink for Goals.) The post-it notes can easily be moved to another day if I need to reschedule a project at the last minute.
