Here it comes, one of my favorite holidays of the year! Yes because of the turkey and all the fixings, and even more because of the friends and family. I have so much to be thankful for I don't even know where to start (more on that later)...so while I am figuring that out, let's talk turkey! There are various reasons you might need to cook a glorious golden buttered turkey breast instead of a whole turkey. Maybe your Thanksgiving crowd is a small and intimate one. Maybe there was no leftover turkey from the big bird (the HORROR!) and you need some more turkey. Whatever your reason, here's your delicious answer - and it doesn't even need be Thanksgiving in order to make it.

Stromboli! http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/11/stromboli.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/11/stromboli.html#comments Sun, 23 Nov 2014 15:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14826 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Stromboli! ---

Stromboli! For those of you who have never had the delciousness that is stromboli (which I am going to say many thousands of times in this post because it is so darn fun to say), it's basically the love child of pizza and calzone. With a dash of the best sandwich you've ever tasted. It's warm and cheesy and spicy and you can customize it pretty much every way you please...and it's ridiculously easy to make. What's the catch? THERE IS NO CATCH. There is only...stromboli!

Every now and then lunchtime rolls around and I get an unbearable craving for macaroni and cheese. I want it, and I want it NOW.

French Silk Pie http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/11/french-silk-pie.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/11/french-silk-pie.html#comments Tue, 18 Nov 2014 15:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14805 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: French Silk Pie ---

Here comes the time of year when I start stockpiling those dessert recipes that seem a little too luxurious for the rest of the year, but absolutely required at this time of year. Decadent, luscious, swirly chocolate luxury on a plate. But here's the thing for me...with everything else going on between now and January 2nd when I swear off everything but celery, it has to be EASY. And totally RELIABLE. Because the two things I don't want to happen are to be spending all day making some elaborate concoction, and/or to have said concoction not come out okay. Which is why I adore French Silk Pie...it is swirly chocolately decadent lusciousness, and it is both easy and perfect every time.

Ramen Burgers! http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/11/ramen-burgers.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/11/ramen-burgers.html#respond Sun, 16 Nov 2014 15:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14801 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Ramen Burgers! ---

I'm having a torrid fling with ramen noodles lately. Yup, those 39 cent packets of evil deliciousness that we all lived on the first year we graduated from college because we couldn't afford anything else. For years after that era in my life, I didn't even think about ramen, much less buy it and eat it. Until recently, when for some reason I developed deep ramen yearning that led to this cheesy ramen soup, and then recently to this dish of ramen topped with a cheeseburger, a little bacon, some chopped greens and a drizzle of sesame oil over the whole thing. Yup. I'm at Defcon One, ramen-wise.

At this point, I think I have messed with enough traditional dishes (please see Macaroni and Cheese Cupcakes as a prime example) the fact that I am about to rave about this spiced up lasagna topped with sour cream and scallions will not surprise you one little bit. So here I go: I've kept the noodles and the ricotta, but the tomato sauce has been replaced with salsa, the mozzarella with Jack and cheddar cheese, the ground beef with shredded chicken, and there's some chili powder lurking in there. And while I admit that even I thought I was skating on some thin lasagna ice...it works!
