Make All New Food Things!

Make All New Food Things!

Posted by Anthony on October 25, 2016 in Tidbits


Last week, I was seriously jonesing to make some new recipes. And since my wife and I love to have “small plates” dinners every so often, I took the opportunity to jazz things up and make all new recipes for the meal, complete with a menu I printed up (because I’m a design geek like that). The menu for the evening included:

  • Raspberry Peach Sangria
  • Cheddar Bacon Ranch Spread
  • Garlic Smashed Potatoes with Sautéed Garlic Tomatoes
  • Grown-up Pigs in a Blanket (filled with BBQ pulled pork and cheese)
  • Zucchini Boats
  • Chocolate Tiramisu Truffles

Muffin Tin Lasagnas

Muffin Tin Lasagnas

Posted by Anthony on February 17, 2016 in Entree


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!

Brie and Jam Crescent Roll Bites

Brie and Jam Crescent Roll Bites

Serves: 8

Time: 15 min (active), 20 min (inactive)

Difficulty: Easy

A few days ago, I was making a “small plates” style dinner for my wife and I, and was inspired to make some brie as an appetizer. A friend of ours had told us about a recipe she had made, involving wrapping crescent rolls around Brie and jam. After looking at the recipe, I decided to try my own variation on it by making individual crescent rolls stuffed with Brie and jam, rather than one big serving. And since this was a new recipe for me, it was a perfect chance to add another entry into my 50 in 15 Challenge.

I have to admit, the end result was nothing short of phenomenal. These bad boys are easy to make, and are perfectly creamy and utterly delicious. They’re a perfect appetizer for a meal, offering a creamy and sweet addition to the menu. Trust me when I say that you really need to make these for yourself — you’ll be glad you did!
