Loaded Baked Potato Soup from the slow cooker. Potatoes, cheese, bacon... what's not to love here? Especially if the crockpot does all the work for you!
Skillet Lasagna. A deconstructed lasagna that's ready in about half an hour. Ultimate comfort food.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars. What's not to love here?
Cheesy Baked Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and Eggplant. It's full of all sorts of deliciousness: eggplant, roasted red peppers, pasta, cheese, and crunchy breadcrumbs.
Crab & Brie Stuffed Mushrooms. Crab and Brie make a great filling for stuffed mushrooms. And these would make a great addition to a New Year's Eve spread. In fact, I might make them in full-sized portobellos for our dinner...
Salted Caramel Cheesecake Cupcakes. Cupcake-sized cheesecakes, swirled with salted caramel sauce. Another dish that would make a great addition to a New Year's party.
Salted Caramel Brownies. Seriously, I told you it was the year of salted caramel. These are Joey's favorite brownies, and for good reason. Super chocolately, with a salted caramel filling. A sprinkling of fleur de sel totally makes them too.
Tortellini Minestrone. A comforting soup that's still pretty light and healthy.
Tomato-Basil Quinoa. I threw this dinner together in a pinch one night, but it was one of my favorite dinners (and subsequent lunches) of the summer.
Greek Pita Pizzas. Another healthy dinner or lunch option. I've made this (or a variation thereof) several times, and it's by far one of my favorite meals. Pita bread, hummus, cheese, tzatziki.... all good things!
Thanks for reading, and I'll be back tomorrow with my personal favorites of the year!
