Store-bought carbonara sauce can taste good, minus the guilt from the purist in you. | The Ramekin Speaketh There will be times when you will painstakingly make the perfect carbonara sauce from scratch. It might look like this, one of the most attractive photographs of pasta currently on the Internet. Seriously. All the other dishes of pasta are jealous. And then, there will be times that you will want to satisfy a vague craving for carbonara, but be too tired to do anything other than boil some pasta and reach for a pack of bacon and a jar of Prego so that you can spend the thirty minutes you’ve saved trawling Reddit on autopilot while scratching behind a kitty’s ears (that happened to me today). So you’ve pretty much resigned yourself to a meal that tastes somewhat processed and mass-produced. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Unless, you know, you’re him. If, one day, you do get the time, I highly encourage you to make a carbonara sauce from scratch, with the freshest ingredients you can lay your hands on because it really will taste positively decadent.

Chicken Lentil Soup — Dinner Recipes from The Kitchn For me, especially when I'm focusing on my health or losing weight, there is nothing more comforting than having many containers of this nourishing, delicious, filling lentil soup with chicken stashed away in the freezer. Lentil soup is actually the very first dish I learned to cook, and I am still amazed at how easy it is to make something so much better than you get from a can. I'm also sentimental about this soup, so it will probably always be among my favorite things to make. I do prefer using bacon fat here—I spend extra on premium bacon so I always strain and save the rendered fat for making this soup. The smoky flavor it brings to the soup is a great complement to the earthy lentils, but butter and olive oil also work well. For a vegetarian version, just leave out the chicken and bacon fat (use olive oil instead). Chicken Lentil Soup Serves 8 to 10 Melt the bacon fat or butter in the bottom of a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic.

Chicken Pasta Salad with Yogurt-Mango Sauce I paid a visit to my local hippie-dippy market last weekend, and couldn’t resist gawking at their deli counter. It’s filled with so many healthy things, just one setback: all ridiculously expensive. Like, $8 for a mouthful. I caved and ordered the world’s smallest container of pasta salad, then reverse engineered the recipe at home. I used leftover roasted chicken meat from the previous night, and made enough salad for 6 large servings. It would’ve cost me more than $50 to buy the same amount at the market, and the original didn’t even have chicken…! First of all, the yogurt-mango sauce. I love making stuff at home because I can be generous with ingredients, so the vegetable servings here are three times the size of the market-bought salad that inspired my recipe. Since the pasta salad can be eaten cold, it makes a nice take to work lunch. Did you like the recipe idea? Chicken Pasta Salad with Yogurt-Mango Sauce Author: Aleks @ CanuckCuisine.com
Grilled Cheese with Pesto Grilled cheese with pesto. Do it, and you won’t regret it. Even my 84-year-old grandma who literally wrote a cookbook about delicious appetizers thinks this combo is the bee’s knees. I always use Tillamook Extra Sharp cheddar cheese and my mom’s homemade bread (which she sells at the Corvallis Farmers’ Market on Saturdays). While the food-processor method for making pesto does the trick, I’ve been having fun chopping everything with just a big knife, kinda like in this video by Tiger in a Jar (though not quite so pretty).
