My husband and I love a good flatbread - what's better than buttery naan topped with your favorite ingredients? Nothing! My husband and I have been experimenting with lots of topping combinations, but we kept coming back to this BBQ version. The best part? It's a great way to enjoy summery barbeque flavors without having to bear the cold to man the grill 😉
“Fried” Ravioli with Basil Tomato Dipping Sauce
I've mentioned before that there is nothing better than grilled cheese & soup - it's my go-to lazy day comfort food for SURE! I also love pasta, and was cooking some easy cheese ravioli for dinner while thinking of ways to use up my large fresh basil supply when this idea was born: why not combine two of my favorite things to create an easy snack/appetizer. These crispy ravioli with basil tomato dipping sauce are the perfect finger food version of your favorite childhood meal, they are SO easy and SO good! They're the perfect appetizer, football snack, or even an easy dinner that sure to please kids and adults alike! Give this fun grilled cheese & tomato soup twist a try, I promise you'll love it!
Beef Shakshuka with Feta & Naan
Shakshuka is a Mediterranean dish consisting of eggs poached in a herby tomato sauce. I originally discovered a "beefed up" version of this dish through a meal delivery service, but my husband and I loved it so much, I kept tweaking it until we created this dish that has become a staple in our household. It's comforting, filling, but the herbs and spices make it feel fresh. We tend to make this more often in the colder months, but it's a great meal to serve year round for dinner, lunch or even breakfast!
Placek is a Polish bread, topped with sweet crumbles, and has always been a staple in my family, especially around the holidays. My Oma (German for Grandma) always, always made a few loaves of Placek whenever we visited, and while she is no longer with us, it will always remind me of home, her love for her family, and the holidays spent with her in Buffalo, NY. As we come up on the holiday season (already, I know!) I thought there was no better time to share one of my favorite dishes that brings back the best memories.
