Martha Stewart’s Macaroni and Cheese

We decided to celebrate “World Vegetarian Day” yesterday with a hearty vegetarian entree. This macaroni is cheesy and crusty and saucy and flavorful and not terribly difficult or time-consuming.

If you don’t, this recipe isn’t going to be the one to convert you (try this or […]

Seared Scallops and Herb Butter Sauce

Shrimp Florentine Pasta

This was SO fast and easy (recipe here.) Very tasty, too. Even Hubby, who has historically not been a big shellfish fan, loved it. Filling and healthy and VERY fast to make.

Blue Cheese and Pecan Spread

Absolutely delicious spread (recipe here). I did substitute pecans for the walnuts, because they’re just so much better! The spread would be fantastic in the tea sandwiches, as specified, but was also wonderful on crackers. Would also be good on apples or celery sticks.

Asiago-Crusted Pork Chops

These (recipe here) were tasty and I even used the same preparation to make an asiago-crusted tofu portion for our family vegetarian. Very easy and delicious!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

These (recipe here) were quite good. Definitely not a replacement, exactly, for a beef burger, but good in their own right.
