    Pico de Gallo. I pinned this here, because I made this every other morning at my very first chef/commercial/corporate job. Many MANY cuts and screams from the lime juice in my fingers.. Lol

    One Pan Baked Ziti recipe. It's fast and delicious--ready in less than 30 minutes! | LP: I made this last night - it was so good! It turned out a bit soup-y, though, so I might cut back on the water by 1/2 cup or so the next time I make this.

    Baked Ziti With Two Mozzarellas and Parmesan Cream Sauce | LP: New favorite! However, the parmesan-cream sauce does NOT heat up well after being refrigerated. I also made one of the recommended homemade red sauces mentioned in this recipe.

    Sunday Night Stew | Tasty Kitchen | LP: This is pretty much the epitome of a hearty beef stew. And the mashed potato recipe is SO good.

    Betty Crocker's Chili Recipe | LP: If you've never made chili before, or don't want to put a ton of effort into making chili, this is a great recipe! It still calls for 1 hour of simmering, but otherwise not very time-consuming. And it's yummy. Oh, and it's perfect for 2 people (plus 2 servings of leftovers).


    One-Pan Taco Casserole - ground beef, pasta, tomatoes and melty cheese! | LP: My husband had three bowls. Enough said!

    Ravioli and Italian Sausage Skillet - Cheesy comfort food at its best made in less than 30 min. | LP: My husband loved this! I used frozen ravioli (the recipe says fresh is best), and it turned out fine. The flavor hinges upon the fire-roasted tomatoes, and I felt like my dish's overall flavor was a little "off". I will try a different brand next time.

    Mongolian Beef and Spring Onions | LP: This was soooo good! Definitely cut sugar to 1/4c or less. Kind of time-consuming, but worth it.

    Savory Cream of Wheat (alternative to grits) | LP: My husband prefers Cream of Wheat to grits, so I tried this recipe last night. I liked the addition of the cheddar cheese (freshly grated), but he didn't like the cheese. I guess he likes his grits/Cream of Wheat pretty bland. To each his own!

    One Pot Chili Mac and Cheese - Two favorite comfort foods come together in this easy, 30 min one-pot meal | LP: Crowd-pleaser weeknight dinner! I felt like the amount of cheese was too little for a dish that is supposed to be half mac & cheese, so I added a little more. :)

    Loaded Potato Soup | Betty Crocker | LP: Oh yum. This recipe requires time, a few pots & pans, and elbow grease (if you shred your own cheese). But it's so worth it. This makes a HUGE batch - I froze some for later.
