We all secretly love ramen. Some of us (raises hand!) love it not so secretly, partly because it brings back warm and fuzzy memories of subsisting on it during those heady post-college days when we were young and crazy and ramen was all we could afford, and partly because it tastes so dang good. SO dang good that it's hard to believe that anything could make its naughty taste better. But you know what can? Melted cheese, a little butter and a poached egg. THAT'S what can.

Taco Pasta Bowl http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/taco-pasta-bowl.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/taco-pasta-bowl.html#comments Sun, 28 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14363 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Taco Pasta Bowl ---

I am a true blue taco lover. I think I have firmly established my devotion to fish tacos with the grilled fish taco and fried fish taco recipes that I've posted over the past couple of weeks. But don't think I'm not equally besotted by tradition beef tacos as well - I am head over heels for them as well. The only, and I mean only, thing that bugs me in the slightest about tacos are the crunchy taco shells that shatter into a billion pieces when you bite into them, sending precious taco filling back on to your plate and/or down your arm. And while soft flour or corn tortillas are one answer to this issue, there's another solution. Pasta!

Ravioli Lasagna! http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/ravioli-lasagna.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/ravioli-lasagna.html#comments Thu, 25 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14132 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Ravioli Lasagna! ---

I love lasagna, but let's all admit that sometimes we just don't have the energy. The noodles, the layering, getting the right proportion of ricotta to mozzarella so that it is neither too dry nor too soupy...it's exhausting, I tell you! But I do love it. And then one day when we were having some fabulous ravioli for dinner (more on that later!) it occurred to me. Pasta. Ricotta. Sauce. All that I needed was the mozzarella and a square pan, and I could be on my way to lasagna heaven via a ridiculously easy short cut. And that short cut is named Ravioli Lasagna!

Light and Easy Fried Fish Tacos http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/light-easy-fried-fish-tacos.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/light-easy-fried-fish-tacos.html#comments Tue, 23 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14673 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Light and Easy Fried Fish Tacos ---

Man, have I been in a fish taco mood lately. Which works out well for the Southern husband who loves fish tacos, and is very happy that I am not in, say, a brussels sprout mood or a chicken liver mood or a couscous mood, all things that I love but he doesn't. But fish tacos he is happy to eat night after night, which we did until I got things down to my two favorites...the quick and scrumptious grilled fish tacos I wrote about the other day, and these light and delectable fried fish tacos. And while we did adore the grilled fish tacos....these fried ones? They are the grand prize winners in my house.

Well, it's September. I'm not sure how that happened, but summer is a happy memory and all our chickies are back to school with their new backpacks and school shoes. And one thing is for sure...they will come home hungry. And needing to be taken to soccer practice and karate and to Staples for that school project that involves building a roller coaster out of foamcore (yes, this happened to me) all at the same time. And since you may also have a thing or two on your OWN to-do list, this is when the slow cooker turns into your new best friend. Here are seven recipes that are favorites in my house...and have turned many a crazy day into a calm and delicious evening. Well...relatively calm, anyway.

Baked Avocado with Eggs and Bacon http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/baked-avocado-with-eggs-and-bacon.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/baked-avocado-with-eggs-and-bacon.html#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14653 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Baked Avocado with Eggs and Bacon ---

I am all about eggs for dinner. And that's not just because eggs totally call for bacon along with them - it's just that they are so easy and comforting and pretty much good for you. I also love avocados with all my heart, and everything I just said about the egg is also true about the avocado. Well, maybe not the bacon part, but everything else. All true. So I guess it was only a matter of time before I put the two of them together, right? Welcome to baked avocado with eggs and bacon.
