However, here are some of my favorite, 30-minute or less recipes from this year! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
When we don't have any food in the house, we make carbonara. It's easy to make, filling, and can serve a whole crowd. Better yet, you can add or remove ingredients as much as you'd like -- just so long as you've got pasta, parmesan cheese, eggs, and some sort of veggie on hand, you can't go wrong (and saving some bacon in the freezer doesn't hurt, either!).
Campfire Dark Chocolate Orange Brownies
Spicy Shrimp Empanadas
Campfire Orange Cinnamon Buns
Chipotle Lager Cheese Fry Chorizo Burgers
My number one pregnancy craving this year has been cheeseburgers, which is amusing because I never liked them until now! Here's one of our favorite recipes on how to make a chorizo burger, which is amped up with a homemade Chipotle lager cheese sauce. As if that's not enough, it's served with fries over top, as a nod to the Primanti Bros sandwich shops in Pittsburgh. This burger is fantastic for BBQs -- can grilling season come back, please?
I can't wait to experiment with additional easy recipes in 2016, and am looking forward to sharing my favorites with you as future Dinners of the Week. Stay tuned for more, and Happy Holidays to you and your family!
