Tonight, I was in the mood for a new recipe, and wanted to make something special for my wife. She’s a big fan of Alfredo pasta, and also things made with puff pastry. So I concocted a recipe that married them both together. The end result was warm, creamy, flavorful, and flaky – absolute deliciousness! If you’re looking for a slightly different take on your next pasta recipe, give this a shot. You’ll be glad you did!

Bacon Asparagus Pastry Twists

Serves: 4

Time: 30-40 mins

Difficulty: Medium

A few nights ago, I was in the mood for some new recipes, especially since my family and I were hosting guests. After a bit of searching, I stumbled upon an article for making a Three Course Tuscan Dinner and decided to try my hand at the appetizer and main course. Since I’m not a huge fan of bacon, I did a few of these without bacon, just with the pastry wrap, which I think was equally delicious. If you’re looking for a fresh recipe to try with some asparagus, I highly recommend this one. You won’t be disappointed!

Vegetable Sushi Rolls

Vegetable Sushi Rolls

Posted by Anthony on September 4, 2015 in Entree, Side


Serves: 5 Rolls

Time: 1–1.5 hrs

Difficulty: Medium

Today, I was really craving some vegetable sushi rolls. As it happened, I had some spare time in the evening, and being in an experimental mood (and wanting an additional recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge), I decided to try my hand at making some myself. I had absolutely no idea where to start, so I did what 99% of people do — I turned to Google. Luckily, I found a lot of websites that had step-by-step instructions for how to make sushi rolls. The one I ended up using as my go-to guide was Vegetarian Sushi for Beginners: How to Create a Basic Sushi Roll. While I stuck to the instructions religiously, I did make one change as I swapped out the cream cheese for asparagus. But other than that, I did everything the same.

I must admit that I was hesitant to try my hand at sushi. For one, I didn’t have a bamboo rolling mat, and ended up using a piece of wax paper instead. Also, I’m notorious for over-filling dishes that get wrapped or rolled, like burritos, ravioli, calzones, etc. Despite any hesitation and fear that I had going in, I must say that after all was said and done, I was absolutely floored with the result. It took time and patience to make these rolls, but it was definitely worth it. They are flavorful and delicious, and are a great healthy meal (or side). If you’re a fan of sushi, give these a try. I think you’ll be pleased with the results!
