Eggplant Lasagne

Eggplant Lasagne

This is a wonderful twist on regular lasagne. Instead of noodles, you will use slices of eggplant.  There is something incredibly satisfying about lasagne, but the eggplant is a little lighter and provides some added nutrition over a traditional pasta lasagne.  The sauce used in this recipe is simmered for 2-3 hours to get an incomparable rich flavor that cannot be achieved with a short simmer.  (Just taste it before and after you simmer it to see the difference for yourself.)  The recipe calls for a mixture of ground beef and turkey sausage. Sausage is always amazing in lasagne, but...

Chicken Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner

Chicken Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner

Our kitchen faucet broke around the time I created this recipe. Although we later found a makeshift way to keep using it while waiting for a new part, on the day I made this recipe, I was dealing with a faucet that would shoot a spray of water out in full force, making me shun the task of washing dishes.  So I was looking for an easy-clean up meal. And that’s one of the great things I love about sheet pan dinners.  They cut down on a lot of extra dishes…just toss everything together and cook on one large tray. All-natural,...

Instant Pot Greek Yogurt From An Heirloom Starter

Instant Pot Greek Yogurt From An Heirloom Starter

When something is this easy to make from scratch, why not?Armenians have been eating and making yogurt for a long time! In fact, there are reports that it was the Armenians who first introduced yogurt to America in 1929. (Then why is my recipe titled Greek Yogurt you say???) Well, because Armenians rarely get the credit for anything.  Actually, in all truth, it's because I'm partial to the greek yogurt we're all most familiar with in U.S. grocery stores. So I purposely purchased a starter that is a traditional, thermophilic greek yogurt culture. (Matzoni, a mesophilic type of yogurt, may be the more authentic...

Chicken and Broccoli Pasta With Rosa Sauce

Chicken and Broccoli Pasta With Rosa Sauce

Over twenty years ago, my husband and I tried our first pasta rosa sauce at a restaurant we visited on our honeymoon.  I don't remember much about the pasta other than the intriguing blend of marinara and cream, which has been something I have become quite fond of.Since I am one of those people who likes to balance a lot of healthy foods with more decadent ingredients, it doesn't surprise me that this sauce has become one of my favorites.  Alfredo sauce has always been a little too heavy for me, but sometimes marinara seems a little too light.  So, rosa sauce is...
