so lately i've been totally into cooking and i'm completely addicted to the food network. i figured while i'm making my hats i might as well be learning something too, right? this past weekend i decided to cook my hubby a nice dinner since he's been super stressed out. these are a couple of my favorite recipes and they're super easy too!
first, i started on a turkey meatloaf with feta and sun-dried tomatoes (courtesy of giada delaurentiis). this is a super easy dish to make because you pretty much just mix everything in a bown, dump it in a baking pan, and toss it in the over for 45 minutes. i've made this recipe a few times now and i think i'm convince that it's fail proof!
while the meatloaf was baking i moved onto the creamiest most heavenly mashed potatoes ever! (courtesy of tyler florence). these potatoes won't only melt in your mouth, but they'll melt your heart. these are also super duper easy to make and only require a few ingredients.
and last, but not least, i figured we should have a veggie on the plate, too. i cut up some broccoli florets and tossed them on a baking sheet with olive oil, salt and pepper. i also sliced up a couple garlic cloves a threw those in there too. about 20 minutes before the meatloaf was ready, i threw the broccoli into the oven.
and what's dinner without a glass of wine? to finish off this delightful feast i popped open a bottle of francis coppola pinot noir. this was the first time we tasted francis coppola wine and i must say we loved it! if you're a wine-o (like myself, hehe) i definitely recommend this one.
i hope you've enjoyed this brief tour of my weekend culinary adventure. if you have any of your own favorite recipes you'd like to share, comment away!
