How to cook paleo spaghetti I LOVE spaghetti. Growing up, I would get made fun of by my family for how much of it I would eat (seriously, two or three massive platefuls in one sitting).

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs If I ask my kids what they want for dinner, there's a ninety percent chance they will say pizza. They love it, as most kids do. I guess I have an affection for it too, but we don't indulge too often. So when my kids came home from school and I had this afternoon snack waiting for them, they were pretty excited to be having pizza at 3 PM. These are the simplest, yummiest little bites. If you have a mini muffin pan you are good to go. Preheat oven to 375o. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through, then stir in 1 Tablespoon basil. Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 Tablespoon basil.

Dinner Ideas Back in January I shared 10 new recipes to try for dinner and promised to share something like this again. These are recipes that I’ve tried that haven’t made it onto the blog to be “featured,” but they’ve been added into my recipe database. I’m sneaky like that. Pork Chops Alla Pizzaiola: This recipe is from Giada De Laurentiis. Tomato Florentine Soup: This is a wonderfully rich- flavored tomato soup with a small amount of pasta added in and spinach leaves too. Stir Fried Beef and Broccoli with Orange- Sesame Sauce: This one is a quick, 30 minute meal. Sauteed Asparagus with Butter and Parmesan: When my husband travels for work, I’m perfectly happy having something like this entirely to myself for dinner… which is what I did with these asparagus. Back Bay Chili: This recipe was a big hit with my family for dinner. Sweet Cornbread: I whipped up a simple recipe for sweet cornbread to go with the chili recipe above. Seared Scallops: This recipe is designed to serve just two!
