homemade beef and broccoli: This was a great recipe. It actually tasted like take-out, which almost never happens with homemade Chinese like this. Gwen ate every bite we gave her. Definitely going on the list of easy weeknight recipes.
Seitan Bourguignon. This was one of the first recipies I made that really got me excited about learning how to cook. I was so happy to find a vegetarian version of Beef Bourguignon and I had a great evening cooking it with one of my good friends from work! (Seitan is a wheat gluten protein and is a great substitute for meat. SOY-free is a huge plus!)
