There’s something about finding ooey gooey caramel inside a cookie. It’s an exhilarating surprise. And it’s pretty easy to make.

I’ve seen a lot of cookie recipes on the web, placing a rolo candy inside a cookie which results in a gooey caramel filling. I finally decided to try making them myself and was really happy with the results.

Recently there were some changes to FH’s workplace. They used to have a cafeteria, but the building containing the cafeteria got sold. So his company began coordinating food trucks to come by during lunch. Since I haven’t had a chance to chase down many food trucks, this has been the perfect opportunity for at least one of us to experience some food trucks.

I armed FH with a camera (not my precious T2i, but with another nice camera), and off he went to try the food trucks. So over the next few weeks I’ll be featuring some food trucks he tried. First up, Groggy’s.

Groggy’s has a carefree frog as their logo. FH asked the owners why a frog and why the name, but apparently there isn’t really much significance behind it. They were just throwing out ideas and came up with Groggy’s.

The most popular thing on the menu is their “fat sandwiches.” Think of all your favorite unhealthy fast food indulgences. And now stick it all into one sandwich. And that’s basically what a fat sandwich is.


After making the Bacon biscuit sandwich cups, I naturally thought of another popular breakfast sandwich, the McMuffin.  So I decided to try making Sausage McMuffin cups.

I bought some frozen precooked sausage patties and a pack of English muffins. My initial plan was to plop half an English muffin into my muffin pan, then the sausage and then an egg. I ran into a few issues.
