High Desert Pizza’s Famous Focaccia Sandwich

Focaccia Sandwich

I orginially posted this recipe back in 2009, soon after I started this blog. I always thought it had the worst photo. We recently made it again, it was super tasty as usual, so I decided to take some better photos. What do you think? Here is the original if you want to see it. Its a really sad picture. I also use a different formula for the focaccia but the original recipe will work fine.

Maybe its not really a famous focaccia sandwich, but I am going to make it that way. This is the sandwich dreams are made of. I remember when my wife and I were dating when she would visit me at the pizza place where I worked: High Desert Pizza in Ivins Utah. She would come and I would treat her to this tasty focaccia sandwich. We both fell in love at first bite. It took me a little while to remember all the toppings but ultimately I did. I must say thank heavens for that.

Now you have to start off with the Focaccia Bread from this post. Some very tasty bread. We like it fresh out of the oven, but 1-2 day old is fine as well. This is a hot sandwich so it doesn’t matter.

Disneyland Shirt Vector Designs

We will soon be going on a trip to Disneyland. We thought it would be fun to have homemade t-shirts to commemorate the occasion. Being the designer I am I decided to design the shirts myself. I scoured Pinterest and the net for fun Ideas. I found an idea on Grey Luster Girl and absolutely loved the Old Disneyland Sign idea. One thing was that she didn’t have anything someone could download and use so I made one and this is the result for one of the shirts.

Pretty sweet I think. I also found found some shirts with the Mickey and Minnie heads with half of them being heir pants. I thought that was pretty cool. Although a lot of those were Etsy shops, so I decided to make some myself.

Easy Orange Chicken Recipe

Easy Orange Chicken

I bet I can guess what your favorite dish is at Panda Express. Pepper chicken, no. Sweet and sour chicken, no. Beijing beef, maybe. Orange chicken….ding ding ding. I win a prize. Just kidding or maybe I’m not. Needless to say I think we all go to Panda Express for the orange chicken. It’s no lie that its the best thing on the menu. My whole family loves it. Sometimes when ordering the 2 entree meal, we get all orange chicken.

Now this orange chicken recipe isn’t as good as mass produced yummyness, but it is really really good. It doesn’t hurt that you can make it at home and don’t have to go on a quest to the strip mall. Plus, if it wasn’t good, I wouldn’t post it here for your consumption. My wife made this for the family and the girls loved it I think you will too.
