Ricotta Stuffed Shells

Ricotta Stuffed Shells

I've loved these little bundles of cheese for as long as I can remember. My mom used to make a huge pyrex dish of them, so it would last two days, and I would keep sneaking into the kitchen and scarf one down while no one was watching until I'd made a huge dent, after which I would run upstairs and pretend to sleep so I wouldn't be caught!

Chicken Fajita Pizza

Chicken Fajita Pizza

This recipe takes me back tot he taste 90's, early 2000's, when Pizza Hut was the coolest new place in Pakistan. The salad bar was everyone's favorite bar, and that potato salad still hits the spot. But it was their Chicken Tikka pizza and Chicken Fajita Pizza that really made the rounds on every table. It was perfection. You mix the spicy, local flavors of Pakistan into the classic American pizza chain and what you got was delicious. This recipe is an ode to that hype, and it definitely lives up to it...

Honey Butter Roasted Vegetables

Honey Butter Roasted Vegetables

If I have to choose between salad and roasted vegetables, I will always choose roasted vegetables. Even over french fries. I love these honey butter roasted vegetables because they can be both. I've added some tips on how to turn these honey butter roasted vegetables into a great summer salad. The bitter arugula pairs great with the sweet and caramelized carrots. The potatoes make this hearty enough to be a vegetarian main course. I love the sweetness that's brought out by caramelizing the vegetables under high heat and how it contrasts the bitter arugula. Adding the honey into the butter marinade brings out even more flavor.
