baked roasted pepper caprese sandwich

My kids can’t get enough of sandwiches. And while PB&J are a staple and yummy, it’s fun to come up with something new that kids and adults can both enjoy! So when Mezzetta sent me a box of their amazing products and asked me to create a sandwich, I couldn’t turn down such a fun challenge. And what’s better this time of the year than a caprese sandwich? Adding some Mezzetta roasted peppers, chili sauce and garlic spread. Yum!

And my favorite part of making this sandwich is how fast and easy it is!! It only takes 10 minutes to assemble and 10 minutes to bake. And you end up with a crunchy, flavorful and delightful creation. It’s perfect for lunch, dinner or even picnics!

I also love to use Mezzetta products to make salads. Yummy! And since I’ve been on a health kick this past year, I also love that their products pack a TON of flavor but are also gluten-free, vegetarian, low-calorie, low-carb and low-fat. They are a great way to add flavor to almost any dish.

And see how YOU can win $25,000 in Mezzetta’s “Make That Sandwich” Contest! So fun.

Here’s how to make these easy sandwiches: 

Total Time: 20 minutes

Prep: 10 minutes

Yield – 6 servings

Mozzarella Cheese, sliced.

12-15 Large Basil Leaves

2 Medium Tomatoes, sliced.

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350-degrees

Half the bread and lay both sides on your work surface.

Spread one side of the bread with the Mezzetta Hot Chili Pepper Spread and spread the other with the Mezetta Savory Garlic Spread.

Then place the Mezzetta Roasted Peppers on top of the half with the Mezetta Hot Chili Pepper Spread.

Lay the mozarella slices, tomatoes and basil on top of the side with the Savory Garlic Spread.

Combine both sides of the sandwiches together and place them on a baking sheet.

Bake for about 10 minutes — when the cheese starts to melt.

Take the sandwiches out and cut them in half and serve.

Outlander Sneak Peek: My Favorite Books on TV! http://tatertotsandjello.com/2014/07/outlander-sneak-peek-favorite-books-now-tv.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2014/07/outlander-sneak-peek-favorite-books-now-tv.html#comments Mon, 28 Jul 2014 08:36:58 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=63137 jamie-clare2.small]]> This post sponsored by STARZ and Time Warner Cable

 

For the last 18 years, my favorite books have been the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I have literally (literarily?) worn out three copies of the first book, Outlander, and they’re always on my Kindle. (I’m reading the latest, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, now.)

So I jumped at the chance to see the new Time Warner Cable Series on Starz, Outlander,  and see how they brought my favorite books to life. Could they cast actors who could do justice to the characters I could see in my mind? Could they include the historical and psychological detail that I love in the books? And would I even enjoy it after spending so much of my life with the books? The short answer is “yes.”

image001

I had the chance to see the first episode of the new Outlander series and I’m so excited! (It premieres Saturday, August 9, at 9 PM EST/PST.)

(I’m featuring some behind-the-scenes pictures in this post!)

 

jamie-clare.small

They cast the characters very well, especially the main character, Clare. She’s always been my favorite: she’s a strong, intelligent woman. And Diana Gabaldon has done such an excellent job creating complex, multi-dimensional characters that I was worried about who would play them. (And yes, I’ve been following the casting process on Diana Gabaldon’s Facebook page for the last year!)

 



See why I’m so excited?

I’ve loved not only the characters in the books, but how dimensional they are. I feel like I know them well, and that I understand them and their lives. Judging from the first episode, the new Outlander series has captured that.

jamie-clare2.small

I’ve also loved the historical settings for the novels as well as the depth of knowledge Diana Gabaldon brings to the characters, whether it be medical knowledge (Clare’s a nurse) or zoology.

horses.small

While I think any movie or TV series adapted from books faces huge challenges, based on the first episode, the producers and writers are moving in the right direction. For example, there’s a great scene in the Outlander book where Clare, on a trip with her husband in Scotland after being apart for 5 years during the war, looks in a store window. She thinks about how she’s never owned a vase like those displayed in the window, since she and her husband have been busy fighting the war (in her case, as a nurse). It’s an important scene for her character, but it could easily have been overlooked. Its being included speaks volumes to me about the quality of the production!

scene.small

 

 

 * * * * *

Check out the new Outlander series on the Web (looks like you can stream the first episode starting August 2!)

and get ready to watch the whole series starting August 9!

I can’t wait to watch the whole series. Yay!!!!

 

Do you have a favorite book or series?? Share you favorites with me in the comments! 

Have an Awesome Day!!

This is Sarah from Bombshell Bling, and I am beyond thrilled to be guest posting here at TT&J! Back in my pre-blogging days a crafty friend of mine introduced me to her blog obsession: Tatertots & Jello. When I called her last year to tell her how much fun I had having lunch with the lovely Jen at her darling cottage she almost died! She now thinks I am a big deal just because Jen is nice enough to let me be her fangirl. Haha. Little does she know! ;)

Cream Cheese Strawberry Shortcake by Bombshell Bling for TT&J

Anyway . . . aside from being here to gush about the fabulousness that is Jen and her bomb creative blog, I want to share a summer recipe with you that is majorly delish: Cream Cheese Strawberry Shortcake. In the past I have always made individual strawberry shortcakes that have an almost biscuit-like consistency, but WOW is this simpler! A woman at my church gave me this recipe, which she had tweaked a bit from the original, and then I tweaked it a bit farther. We ended up making it for our entire church congregation and it was a huge hit. I hope that you enjoy it too!

Strawberry Shortcake-1

Cream Cheese Strawberry Shortcake

Cake

3 cups Bisquick mix (12 oz.)
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 (3.5 0z) box French Vanilla pudding mix (3.5 oz)

Topping

1 cup whipping cream
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 cups (about 2 lbs) fresh strawberries, sliced

Heat oven to 335 degrees and grease a 9×13 pan.

In a large bowl, beat together all of the cake ingredients until mixed together. Pour into the greased pan.

Bake 35-45 minutes.

Pour the whipping cream into a small bowl and mix until there are soft peaks. Set the whipping cream aside.

In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, eggs, and dry pudding mix.

Fold the whipping cream into the cream cheese mixture.

Frost the cooled cake and top with strawberries. Refrigerate cake if needed.

Serve and enjoy!

Adapted from Betty Crocker.

Strawberry Shortcake-3

I hope that you enjoy this Cream Cheese Strawberry Shortcake as much as we did, and I hope that you will take the time to visit me on my site, Bombshell Bling, for more ideas and inspiration. I share everything from jewelry design and sewing to kid crafts and recipes, especially s’mores recipes. If you love s’mores then you will REALLY love my S’mores Saturdays series!

Have a lovely day!

I can’t believe it’s almost that time of year again – Back to School. As my kids have gotten older and gone from elementary school on to middle school and high school I’ve seen how being organized has helped them succeed in school.

That’s why I loved the locker items from LLZ by LockerLookz. They have all kinds of items to store pens and pencils as well as a little white board for notes and also a shelf that can fit in the locker to provide an easier way to access books. And there are all kinds of wallpapers, flower decals and even chandeliers for your middle school or high school student to personalize their locker and make it cute too!

llz lockerlooks locker decorating

I asked Hannah, my 15 year old to design a locker and we had such a great time making it pretty! It was so fast to put together. There are no adhesives. All of the LLZ items are attached to the lockers with very strong magnets. So it’s really easy to change up the look throughout the year too!

 

llzlockerlookz black and white locker decorating

There are so many color combinations and wallpaper patterns. You can stick with one color, or combine colors for a more colorful look!

LLZ LockerLookz coordinating items

LLZ by Locker Lookz features high fashion locker decorations with high quality products – I love all of the different items and the magnets they use are so strong and nice. You can find their products at Michaels, Staples, ACMoore and Meijer Stores.

And Locker Lookz has a really fun Instagram contest — win a grand prize of a $250 Visa gift card for a back to school shopping spree. OR you can win a secondary prize: 1 winner each week will receive their full locker design (8 total winners)! So fun!

Be Still and Grow Flower Printables at Tatertots and Jello

I love being a Shutterfly ambassador for  #ShutterflyDecor. It’s so fun creating projects for my home using their home decor line of products. This month one of the themes we could choose was “Flower Power”. And I thought it’s the perfect time of year to create something with flowers.

be still and grow pillows and free printables

And I’m giving away $200 to the Shutterfly store at the end of the post. Be sure to enter!!

flower pillows and free printables

I designed three flower pillows with big, graphic flowers on each. And also created a little saying — Be Still & Grow. I love this saying because I think sometimes it’s so easy to get caught up in the craziness of life and kids that I forget to just take a moment to be still and reflect.

flower plate wall and free printables

I also thought it would be fun to take the flower images and put them on plates and create a little plate wall. And I love that the plates are lightweight and easy to hang. All I had to do was put a command strip on the back of each one and stick it to the wall.

 I also think these images would be so pretty put on canvases too.

Back To School Printable Interviews (K-12th Grade) http://tatertotsandjello.com/2014/07/back-to-school-printable-interviews-k-12th-grade.html http://tatertotsandjello.com/2014/07/back-to-school-printable-interviews-k-12th-grade.html#comments Mon, 21 Jul 2014 11:00:02 +0000 http://tatertotsandjello.com/?p=63071 Free-Back-to-School-Printable-Interviews.-Includes-freebies-from-kindergarten-through-12th-grade]]> Hello, everyone! SO happy to be back this month with another really fun free printable (or 26!) for you. I’m Kiki from Kiki and Company and am so excited to be here.

It is Back to School time. Can you believe it?!

This year, I have a 5th grader, a 3rd grader and a kindergartener starting school. They are SO excited to start and when I thought about the changes they have made over the last few years, I thought it was about time to design something up to show that change through the years! Today, I designed a start of the school year AND end of the school year printable interview so you can have a tangible memory of just how fast they grow!

Each one has 11 questions to answer as well as a space for a 4×6 photo of their first and last day each year. Won’t this be such a fun thing for them to look back and see!

I designed the Kindergarten-5th grade the same and the 6th-12th grades the same to reflect their ages. And guess what..you can have them all for free!

First and Last Day of School Printables- Interview

I am also sharing these super fun printable Back to School Photo Signs at Kiki and Company today and they all coordinate with the interviews above! (and are also all FREE!) I’d LOVE to see you there.

I hope you have the BEST start of the school year and that you snuggle those little munchkins while you still have a little bit of time left!

***********

Thanks so much Kiki! I just LOVE those printables. What a fun way to document your cute kids growing up. Older kids will have so much fun filling them out too! Kiki is such an awesome contributor. I’m always so excited to see her new ideas.
