Crispy Fried Pizzas
“Most of us don’t have wood-fired pizza ovens at our house, which is why I would like to argue that this method is really THE BEST way to make a light, crispy, airy, but still somehow soft and chewy pizza crust in the humble confines of your own kitchen.”
Tex-Mex Meatballs in Red Chile Sauce
“These zesty meatballs are a true taste of the Southwest, with poblano peppers, corn chips, lime juice, and red chile enchilada sauce. Prepared with ground chuck, these are a rich, delicious way to fill a tortilla full of flavor. Let guests doctor their own plates with crunchy, colorful toppings including Cotija cheese, radishes, and avocado. If you prefer to prepare early, these also freeze beautifully, so you can always have some on hand. Savor the sensations of Southwest flavors with these Tex-Mex Meatballs in Red Chile Sauce.”

Sautéed with onions and mushrooms, this dish helps you get the homemade pasta taste without all the fuss! A jar of your favorite store-bought pasta sauce—we used tomato-basil—and refrigerated ravioli are mixed with plenty of fresh veggies and garlic to make this pasta a speedy and delicious quick-fix dinner.”
