Rat Loaf Meatloaf

I had a blast making this video even though I was really nervous going live. Luckily for me, I had my husband close by to help lend me the moral support I needed, and so I felt more comfortable in front of the camera.

Company Coming Alfredo Ravioli Lasagna

Easy Company’s Coming Alfredo Ravioli Lasagna

As you’ll see in the photos and video, I made this Alfredo Ravioli Lasagna in a square-shaped springform pan. The reason I chose this pan is that I’ve had it in my cabinet, and have never (not once) used it. It’s not like I have a lot of unused pots and pans in my kitchen, but due to neglect and a fair bit of inorganization on my part (i.e., getting pushed to the back of the cabinet), my square springform pan was in need of some serious loving.

Craveworthy French Onion Stuffed Shells

Crave-Worthy French Onion Stuffed Shells

Imagine if you will, deeply caramelized onions (cooked in a slow cooker) with red wine, butter, beef broth and thyme until they’re sweet and pungent. The onions are stuffed into large, perfectly cooked pasta shells until they’re practically overflowing. The stuffed shells are then layered on top of toasted, garlicky French bread, topped with an abundant mixture of grated Swiss, and Gruyere cheeses, and popped into the oven, so the cheese melts into a blanket of golden, gooey, goodness…Be still my French onion loving heart!
