Two things I love. I love tinkering in the kitchen and I love to use that tinkering to get me a little sumpin’ sumpin’ now and then that might not normally fit into my budget. And when that homemade version blows away the commercial product, especially when it’s a minimum of work and mess, I’m all over it. That’s the case with this Homemade Whole Milk Ricotta.
Ok – we’ve had a couple of cooler days here in Minnesota, and I recently made a lot of my Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts so I could use them to spin off several easy peasy meals that would be perfect for hot summer days. And I made a few but then I deviated! I couldn’t resist making these gorgeous Creamy Cajun Stuffed Shells with that final bit of chicken. I’m so excited about them I couldn’t hold off for a more appropriate season – these are probably going down as one of my most fave recipes ever on my site!
Not too long ago, I came across a photo of Moravian Cinnamon Flop Cake – and I took notice right away. I had made this super simple but oh so delish cake before, with my Mom’s help when I was a teenager. And I remembered because this cake is so distinctive looking and I’ve yet to see another cake that’s anything like it.
