Away From Home Cooking with Extended Stay America

When we're traveling with Family, Friends, or even on Business, we can't wait to go back to our hotel room at the end of a long day to relax and re-charge. But what to do for dinner? Just ask Lauren Wyler, the winner of Extended Stay America's 'Away From Home Cooking' contest.

Lettuce Wraps with Roast Pork at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival

We love trying traditional dishes from all over the world! That is why we love when the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival comes around each year... we get a worldly taste experience all month long. You can find these Kalua Pork Sliders in the South Korea Marketplace.

Kalua Pork Sliders at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival

We love trying traditional dishes from all over the world! That is why we love when the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival comes around each year... we get a worldly taste experience all month long. We have compiled several recipes for dishes that are being served at this years festival. You can find these Kalua Pork Sliders in the Hawaii Marketplace. It is pure DELICIOUSNESS!

Waffle Grilled Cheese with...

We love the diversity of a grilled sandwich. You can make them your own by putting on any of your favorite sandwich ingredients. Making a grilled sandwich using whole wheat waffles makes it simple, fun, and is a crispier alternative to normal sandwich bread. Waffles also hold a lot more deliciousness in those nooks and crannies.

Mozzarella and Tomato Skewers - salad on a stick

A Caprese salad is one of our all time favorite salads. It's fresh, vibrant, flavorful, and light, and super simple to make. We could eat this triple layered salad almost everyday for lunch if we had to so we created this back to school version on skewers to also make it a fun salad to eat. 

Simple BBQ Chicken Lunch

Stretching the food budget each month is a must for most families, so finding simple and creative ways to use up those leftovers is important! We took our leftover roasted chicken and made these 2-minute BBQ chicken sandwiches. 

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

One of our favorite pasta salads is this light Mediterranean version. The feta cheese gives it that tangy burst of flavor when it's combined with the vinaigrette. The cucumber lightens the load while the pepperoncini ads a dose of slight spiciness and sweetness. It's the perfect salad to pack in to a mason jar and take on a picnic, or you can prepare a larger amount for a summer cookout. 

Curry Potato Salad - A New Twist!

It wasn't until this year when potato salad was revolutionized for me once again, and this time even my family decided they loved it. I was at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge for my birthday and had dinner at this restaurant called Boma - Flavors of Africa and they had a curry potato salad tat knocked my tasted buds off!

Simple Summer Salad Combinations

Simple combination salads are perfect for summer picnics. They are easily pre-made and transportable in mason jars and can be shared or enjoyed individually. The key to creating these salads is using fresh, in-season, summer ingredients, tossed lightly with a simple oil, vinegar, and herb dressing.
