Italian Wedding Soup



I made the NYT's Italian Wedding Soup recipe last night and it was quite easy and good. I used homemade chicken stock which definitely helped with the flavor. I don't know that I would have liked it with store-bought stock. Next time I might add carrot, celery and some garlic.

The meatballs were delicious though. I made a double batch and used some for the soup, some for lunch today with tzatziki, and am using the rest in pasta tonight.

New Favorite Roast Chicken




Love this recipe for Buttermilk Marinated Roast Chicken. Marinate overnight with buttermilk and salt, then roast according to instructions. It's easy and delicious. The skin is so crispy and good. Even my daughter said this is her favorite roast chicken.

The Modern Proper's Stuffed Pasta Shells



I've been craving lasagna lately but holding out for my mom's since it's the best ever. To tied myself over until she makes it for me, I tried this recipe for Easy Stuffed Pasta Shells and it was easy and hit the spot. 

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries


I've been trying to find the secret to roasted sweet potatoes that are crispy and not soggy. This recipe for Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries from Cookie & Kate was better than other recipes I've tried. I will try the corn starch trick again and adjust the temp and timing slightly. Delicious though with chimichurri sauce.
