Taco Stuffed Shells Recipe Here something interesting for you taco lovers. Instead of regular Italian stuffed shells last night I made Taco stuffed shells! This recipe for taco stuffed shells consists of ground beef and cream cheese for the filling and is topped with tortilla chips and cheese. Make sure to let the filling mixture have enough time to cool before stuffing the shells or you might have a sloppy mess on your handsJ. The traditional pasta sauce is replaced with a combination of salsa and taco sauce… the best part about this is you can make it as hot as you want! The Best Broccoli of Your Life You know you’ve done something right with broccoli when the person you made it for describes it to someone else the next day as “better than biting into a steak.” Those were Craig’s words and they were a marked change from the first words he uttered about the broccoli, before he bit in: “You made broccoli for dinner? Broccoli and sweet potatoes?” Then he did bite in and his eyes lit up. “Oh my God,” he said.

The Last Iced Coffee Recipe You'll Ever Need! I love Iced Coffee. No... I Love Creamy Iced Coffee. I Love Creamy and Sweet Iced Coffee. Steak au Poivre - The Showstopper I have a comment on this comment, then I have a comment for the OP. To Amy: Removing to foil is simply a way to keep the steaks warm whilst resting (FOR 5 MINUTES AT LEAST… ALWAYYYS!). When the OP says remove to foil, he/she doesn’t mean to wrap them tightly. They mean to place them in a plate, and form a loose ‘covering’ of foil. This will simply trap some of the heat and allow it to remain warm, without trapping too much moisture. To the OP and to anyone else who decides to try ‘flambe’:

Simple vegetable side dishes I have made up for a childhood of hating most vegetables in adulthood and love them in abundance. In summer I want salads at most meals, and in winter I love cooked vegetables. My favourite way of eating vegetables in winter is simply oven roasted mixed vegetables. Olive oil, garlic (or not), herbs, salt (or smoked salt) and then to roast them until the outer flesh is slightly caramelised and the inner flesh is nice and soft. I also like to think of ways to wake up and add flavour to simple vegetables. Beef and Guinness Pie Recipe Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I don’t usually celebrate St. The Angry Chef's Garlicky Lemon-Pepper Chicken A lot of folks have asked me for this recipe. It’s one of The Angry Chef’s signature dishes, and I was lucky to pry it away from him. This recipe is a dream come true for garlic lovers like me. It’s tart and garlick-y and oh-so-fragrant in all the right ways. (As a bonus, you’ll surely be safe from vampires for the evening.) The instructions below are one part recipe, one part technique.

Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower 'Wings' Looking for a healthier (and kinder) alternative to chicken wings? Try these juicy, tangy, and spicy buffalo cauliflower “wings”! Deliciously versatile and with just enough “kick,” these bite-sized pieces of cauliflower offer an eerily similar experience to eating chicken wings. My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie A while back I posted THIS picture on Facebook and Instagram. It was just a picture of some ‘Plain Jane’ chocolate chip cookies I was making on a random Saturday. But people were interested… I had no idea you guys still cared about a recipe for a chocolate chip cookie.
