3-Cheese Eggplant Lasagna (with a Gluten-Free Option)

3-Cheese Eggplant Lasagna (with a Gluten-Free Option)

I can’t get enough of this summer version of vodka sauce in this Summer Creamy Tomato Pasta with Crab & Zucchini. It uses fresh tomatoes and has a secret ingredient to make it a bit lighter, but still creamy- any guesses on what it is? A combination of shallot, garlic, and anchovies gives it a […]

Lamb Meatballs with Pickled Cucumber & Red Onions and Tahini Sauce

This is a deceptively easy weeknight meal- I promise. I made these a while back and Matt immediately requested the recipe to make on his own. A few weeks later when he was starting to make them, he called me, asking for me to check the recipe b/c the directions looked too minimal. But nope, […]
