Thai Tofu & Peanut Pizza

This is the 2nd time we’ve made this recipe. The first time we used chicken (like the recipe originally called for), but this time decided tofu worked better. Even my tofu-hating sister ate it and didn’t complain! Must have been some pretty good tofu! Thai Tofu & Peanut Pizza Recipe from Rachel Ray, with adjustments....

Bistecca with Balsamic-Roasted Onion Crostini

We’re back! And what a great time we had! I better watch out or Taylor will want to move to New York. And can I say how amazing the food is there? From the roasted almonds off the street to frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity3 to tapas at Pipa (honestly one of the best dinners...

So we had a fancy fish recipe planned for tonight, but neither of us felt like eating it or cooking it. So, we turned to our designated “leftovers” meal… a yummy noodle stir fry with Taylor’s awesome peanut sauce. A sauce, by the way, that we use as the dipping sauce for our Vietnamese Shrimp...

Gnocchi with Spring Herb Pesto

Extreme Green Dinner: part 2. Quick tip: buy pre-packaged or frozen gnocchi. You’ll save a TON of time, as gnocchi are really hard to make and even harder to make well. We get ours at Trader Joe’s. Mmmm! Gnocchi with Spring Herb Pesto Recipe from Emeril. We didn’t put arugula in the pesto, I’m not...
