Serves: 4

Time: 20 min (active), 45 min (inactive)

Difficulty: Easy

My wife found a recipe for no-roll chicken enchiladas a while back after having it at a friend’s house, and passed it along as a potential dish for us to try. With a little modification, I came up with the following recipe, which is a ridiculously flavorful and filling Mexican meal worthy of making again. And while it takes a bit of time to finish (mostly inactive bake time), the result is well worth it.

Serves: 4

Time: 35 min (Cauliflower); 60 min (Red Pepper Romesco Sauce)

Difficulty: Medium

My wife and I hosted her parents this past weekend, and I was jonesing to make a new recipe while they were here. I had recently received the book The Vegetable Butcher from some friends for Christmas, and was eager to dive in and make some of the recipes. So after a bit of perusing through the book, I landed on this recipe for Cauliflower Steaks, and decided it was a winner for first recipe to make from the book. I had previously seen recipes for cauliflower steaks, but had never actually made them yet, so this was a perfect chance to do so. The end result was nothing short of phenemonal — a recipe I’m sure to make again.

Serves: 6

Time: 20 min (active); 25 min (inactive)

Difficulty: Easy

On a recent trip to visit my sister and her family, my wife and I were treated to a delightful array of meals. I had the pleasure of helping with most of the meals, both because I enjoy cooking, as well as to help alleviate the burden of cooking for a group of 9. On the very first night we were there, she made us this recipe for Muffin Tin Lasagnas, which is a hands-down winner of a recipe. It’s simple to make, tastes absolutely delicious, and is a quick-and-easy go-to recipe for both an entrée or a side dish. It’s also a wonderful dish to serve when you want or need to use different ingredients for different people, like making half with a meat filling and half with veggies, thereby catering to both vegetarians (like me) and non-vegetarians at the same time. If you’re a fan of lasagna, you must try this recipe. You’ll be glad you did!

Pork Tenderloin Chop Suey

Serves: 6

Time: 45 min

Difficulty: Easy

Tonight, my parents were in town visiting after they hosted us for Thanksgiving, and my mom and I teamed up to tackle a new recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge. And after listening to my dad’s Thanksgiving sermon on Wednesday night, in which he reminisced about his late mother who would’ve been 98 years old this Thanksgiving, I was inspired to make one of her famous dishes — Chop Suey. But there was a catch: No one has the actual recipe. She had it in her head, and just made it from memory. So up front, I knew there was no way to replicate it to give my dad a completely accurate representation of one of his favorite childhood meals. But after some recipe searching and brainstorming with my mom, we came up with a recipe that was at least darn close to what they remember from grandma. The end result was a delicious, healthy, and comforting dish. And more importantly, it got a thumbs-up from my dad, who was delighted with our nod to his mother.

Pizza All Day!

Pizza All Day!

Posted by Anthony on October 23, 2015 in Tidbits

Last Saturday I decided it was high time to try some new pizzas. So I set out on a quest that, thanks to my sister, was coined #PizzaAllDay. Starting at breakfast and continuing through dinner, I ended up making 4 new pizza creations. It was a lot of time in the kitchen, but anyone who knows me knows how much I absolutely love homemade pizza days, so it was well worth it. And since all of these pizzas were new, they’re qualified for my 50 in 15 Challenge, moving me one step closer to my 50th recipe.

For all of these pizzas, I used the Pizza Americana dough recipe from my go-to pizza book, American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza by Peter Reinhart. It’s a great all-purpose dough recipe that works perfectly for me when making pizzas in my oven.

Now, without further ado, on to the pizzas!
