This Saturday I was in the mood for making a nice new breakfast recipe, and found an amazing recipe for Broiled Brown Sugar Bananas in the Good Housekeeping 400 Calorie Meals cookbook. I decided to try it, but rather than just making them on their own, I chose to pair it with some homemade pancakes. The result was an amazingly tasty, warm, and comforting breakfast that I’ll gladly make again. So if you’re in the mood for a new twist on boring old pancakes, give this a try — it’s super easy, and is sure to please your taste buds.

Difficulty: Medium

One of my favorite kinds of pizza is my Sweet Potato Pizza. It’s not your stereotypical pizza, as most Americans envision. It doesn’t use any marinara sauce, doesn’t have any of the standard toppings, yet is delightfully flavorful and unique in its own right. The sweetness of the cheese paired with the savory richness of the caramelized onion and oven-roasted sweet potatoes makes for an absolutely delicious end product that’s sure to please!

Serves: 4 pizzas

Difficulty: Medium

This is my go-to pizza dough recipe for pizzas I make in my oven. It’s a great all-purpose recipe, and is useful in its strength and ability to hold more toppings than other styles of dough. It produces a bread-like crust that’s both filling and deliciously tasty. And we all know that the dough is arguably the most important part of the pizza, as it is more often than not the culprit of making or breaking the final product.

Skillet Broccoli Shells and Cheese

Skillet Broccoli Shells and Cheese

Posted by Anthony on September 14, 2015 in Entree


Serves: 6

Time: 35-45 min

Difficulty: Easy

While at the grocery store a few weeks ago, I picked up the September issue of Cooking Light magazine, being intrigued by the cover photo of  “One-Pan Broccoli-Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese”. Knowing that my wife loves mac and cheese (and bacon), I knew I had to give the recipe a try. I modified the recipe a bit to suit my needs — most notably leaving the bacon off of my serving (since I’m vegetarian). Also, I used vegetable stock rather than chicken stock, and opted to use whole-grain shells rather than macaroni, because let’s be honest… macaroni is such a cliché pasta.

To say that I was pleased with the end result would be an understatement. Both my wife and I immediately fell in love with this dish, despite both of us being tentative about how the inclusion of butternut squash puree would play out. But in the end, I’d definitely make this recipe again. It was a fantastic, warm, and flavorful comfort food, perfect for a chilly September football Saturday dinner after watching our University of Michigan Wolverines win their home opener against Oregon State. And it was yet another great addition to my 50 in 15 Challenge.

If you’re looking for a slightly lighter and healthier homemade “mac” and cheese recipe, give this one a shot. You’ll be glad you did!
