I always try to eat delicious food. Unfortunately I don't have that much money, so I have to cook a lot of it at home. But thats OK because I love cooking and I love eating at home with my wife. This is a website with my favorite recipes and a little bit of commentary.

Sausage with Peppers

It is cold down here. Daisy is getting cabin fever.

The baby is getting sick of bundling up like an Eskimo.

Steamer Cove is all frozen over and even the Blue Heron has left. He usually sits on the little island in the middle. He usually only sits there at night though.

I decided to make a dish to cheer us all up.

Italian Sausage with Peppers

1 pound Italian sausage links (your choice hot or mild)
1 onion, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1 green pepper, sliced into 1 inch slices
1 red pepper, sliced into 1 inch slices
1 cup white wine
3 cloves garlic, minced
olive oil
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t basil

Brown the sausages in a skillet with a little olive oil. Meanwhile saute the peppers, onion and garlic in a sauce pan with a little olive oil. When sausages are browned set aside and let cool for 5 minutes. Slice sausages into pieces and add to saucepan with the onions and peppers. Use wine to deglaze the skillet that you cooked the sausages in, and pour the results into the saucepan. You may need to add a little water. Add a little salt, a little pepper and the herbs to the pan. Cover the pan and bring to a simmer for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove the lid and simmer longer until the sauce reduces. Serve with garlic bread or some other crusty bread to soak up the sauce.
