Contributed by Nicole from Cooking for Keeps While I’m no stranger to long Sundays spent cranking out lavish meals, taking the time to bust out homemade pasta or even building a three-layer cake with swiss meringue buttercream from scratch, most weeknights I have no time for such shenanigans. Although that doesn’t mean I want to forgo an impressive dinner for something lackluster.  Store-bought pizza, frozen lasagna or takeout just won’t cut it for me – unless I’m on my death … continued…

There’s something about the combination of mint and bourbon that can only mean a Kentucky Derby tie-in. I love the combination. The mint and bourbon both come through on this one, and the brown sugar and bourbon both help make a nice crust on this grilled flank steak. Of course it doesn’t have to be served just on Derby Day…Mint (grow your own—even I can get mint to grow) is just a nice, surprising addition to a lot of savory … continued…

Contributed by Jules from Yankee Kitchen Ninja.   Putting a healthy, delicious dinner on the table quickly night after night is a challenge for all of us – really, all of us: Food bloggers are no exception. While I can often solve the weeknight dinner dilemma with quick-and-easy dishes like rice bowls, soups or salads, I’m still pretty old-school about wanting to eat some protein for dinner. And by protein, I really mean meat. And by meat, I really mean … continued…

This recipe uses zucchini in place of traditional lasagna noodles — using a mandolin to slice the zucchini as thin as possible, lengthwise. I love the results and didn’t miss the pasta, which is saying a lot for me. Note: Because I used uncooked vegetables for the most part, this exuded a good bit of liquid. But in the summer, when I want to throw something together quickly, roasting or grilling the vegetables ahead of time defeated the purpose—instead, I … continued…
