Arancini- Italian Rice Balls

This was one of my favorite recipes when I was a kid; my parents would buy them from the Italian store! We would eat them with our hands as a snack. These are also great with tomato sauce on top as part of a larger meal, or you can make them small and serve them as an appetizer. They are so delicious and are both kid friendly and impressive for an adult dinner!

Cheddar Cauliflower Bake

This is some serious Americana. Jesse and I both grew up eating relatively ethnic foods, (Hispanic and Italian) so I like to try something new every now and then and make a casserole. This one is really cheesy and good, but it’s definitely a side dish, not a main, or you might be in cheese overload.

Lemon Parsley Garlic Bread

We made this beast of a garlic bread the other night and man, oh man, was it good. Seriously, words cannot describe. We had some serious garlic breath, though. This guy is so easy and so impressive and delicious; I think it’s my favorite recipe so far.

Red Sauce

This is a slight variation on my mom and grandmother’s pasta sauce! It takes a while to make so start it the night before, but you’ll have plenty of leftovers that you can freeze to make meatball sandwiches, pizza, eggplant parmesan, etc.

Jesse’s Mom’s Arepas

Jesse’s mom and abuelita made these for us when we went for a visit to his home in Connecticut and they were so good! Jesse had been talking about them since we started dating so I was excited to be able to watch his mom in the kitchen so I could learn to make them! They are great for breakfast; when we made them, we ate them with avocado and eggs.
