Homemade Stromboli

Homemade stromboli cut into slices on a platter with marinara sauce in a ramekin.

This stromboli recipe is great for a weeknight dinner, especially if you make the dough ahead of time. Typically stromboli includes pepperoni, salami, and ham, but this is also a great way to use up sandwich meat and cheese at the end of the week. You can also customize the herbs and spices you use

You won’t be crabby in the morning if you start your day off with these crabby mini quiches! My mom and I always go to G&M Restaurant for crab imperial when she comes to visit. They have the best crab imperial, hands down! The portions are so generous that we always have some left over.

BBQ Chicken Salad Melts

BBQ Chicken Salad Melt (sandwich)

My boyfriend and I grilled bone-in chicken breasts with BBQ sauce the other night, and I took home some leftovers. I was going to make a chicken salad, but I wanted to do a warm sandwich. The chicken salad I made would be good cold, too, especially in a wrap. I’m going to be adding

Sirloin Chili (Dutch Oven or Slow Cooker)

Sirloin chili

This chili was perfect for the snow day we had here a couple of weeks ago. I let it simmer on the stove for several hours, but it could also be done in a slow cooker. The beef was super tender, and the chili had a lot of flavor. I’ve included instructions for either method below.

Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I made two strip steaks last night, and wanted to do something with the leftovers. I also had a green pepper that needed to be used, probably by tomorrow at the latest. I actually wasn’t a fan of the steak last night when I made it – it wasn’t salty enough. I normally don’t marinate

Short Rib Ravioli

Short Rib Ravioli

There is a new local restaurant in an area that desperately needs some good restaurants. One of their specials the first night I went was short rib ravioli, and it was amazing. I knew I needed to try to replicate it at home. I took a major shortcut and used sauce from Wegmans because I

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I’ve always been a huge fan of chicken tortilla soup. This recipe is really similar to the one I made before, but I like the new and improved version a lot better! I didn’t have to troubleshoot this recipe at all for being too spicy or salty. This recipe makes a ton (6.75 quart dutch

Simple Chili (for low-budget food challenge)

Chili

One of the meals I made to last most of the week for the low-budget food challenge was a simple chili. I was surprised I was able to pull this off without my usual poblano and jalapeno peppers, among other ingredients. This isn’t the best chili I’ve made, but it tasted good and it was
