-Vegetarian Frito Chili-Bon Appetit. One of my favorite veggie chilis. This one and Joanne Chang's are at the top. -Sheet Pan Parmesan Crusted Tofu and Vegetables-NYT Melissa Clark. Needed a bit more spice to jazz it up but if you like tofu this is good, quick, and versatile -Graham Crackers-Alice Medrich. I have always been curious to try making them and now I am in trouble because the boxed kind may never be the same. These are wonderful!!! "Greekified" Wedding Soup-my own concoction which is a favorite. Essentially a wedding soup that I stream in while whisking a lemon-egg-parmesan mixture at the end similar to an avgolemmo. I use chicken and turkey meatballs in the soup and for greens I used shredded brussel sprouts and escarole this time but I often change it up. -Turkey Meatball and Pasta Soup-simple comfort food to use up the last of my homemade turkey meatballs from the above soup finished with a dash of cream. -C.I. chocolate chip cookies-I made 2 batches for 2 different occasions and changed up the flavor profile of each. One was pistachio, orange, and milk chocolate; 2nd was toffee, peanuts, and semisweet chips. -Biscoff blondies-https://foodfolksandfun.net/biscoff-blondies/ Super rich and DH LOVED them but not my thing(I don't care for speculos/Biscoff cookie but he loves them so it was a treat for him) -Moomies Buns-King Arthur-a classic and good a always -Sheet Pan Lasagna-Giada with my adaptations. Nothing unusual but good solid dish. Used hot Italian turkey sausage and added artichokes and mushrooms along with spinach.
erin-I loved the grahams but my husband wasn't impressed. That being said I have always loved more plain simple sweets while he has never been the big graham cracker fanatic so he can have his pan of biscoff blondies all to himself and I get the entire batch of grahams!! And we're both happy campers!
