Whether or not you are a football fan… you are most likely a fan of at least one aspect of “The Big Game”….
I have a conundrum. Perhaps you can be of help.

As I was concocting one last savory dinner dish for ricotta, I realized I had not done the most obvious meal possible for this ingredient: PASTA! How could I leave this one out? Being that Thanksgiving is upon us, I decided I must include a key Turkey-day ingredient to get my family’s hearts (and stomachs) prepared for what is soon to come. You could even make this as an “After Thanksgiving” meal and add some chopped up turkey leftovers to it. That would be amazing!
I’m doing it!
Today is actually a DOUBLE post day as I have to ‘get a move on’ to make it through Z before baby time…
I’m not sure that’s going to happen but we’ll cross that bridge when it comes I suppose.
The first thing I’m posting are these super light, decadent Lemon Ricotta Cookies w/ Lemon Glaze…
And the next recipe, you guessed it, I couldn’t make it past ‘L is for Lemon’ without including the classic “Lemon Bars”.
At first I dismissed the idea of “J is for Jam” altogether because I thought there would be no “dinner” recipes made with jam…
Only desserts came to mind.
Then I realized that jams would make a FANTASTIC glaze for meats… especially chicken or pork. But more on that in another post.
A “jam” that I definitely did not expect but ended up LOVING is the subject of today’s post: TOMATO Jam!
Throw out any pre-conceived notions that just entered your head… you NEED to try this!
Tomatoes are a fruit after all… why not make jam out of them?
This is amazing on a burger!!! Take a look…
What? I’m serious. Seriously… grilled cheese.
And yes, there IS in fact JAM in the recipe.
Listen, if you’re a mom, you know there are moments of desperation when you would try anything to get lunch together, right?
Am I wrong?
Okay, so it’s not your typical grilled cheese but there is cheese in it and it is grilled… cheese + grilled = GRILLED CHEESE… at least in my recipe-writing it does. 🙂
Oh yes, and if you’re opposed to the idea of frozen waffles… you might as well just stop reading right now.
Ricotta & Jam Grilled Cheese with Fresh Strawberries!!!
Just try to tell me that doesn’t look good…
Where did this past week go?!?
I haven’t a clue… if you know, let me know…
I’ve been busy working on a final Italian Sausage recipe while moving onto the “J” recipes!
Check out the CALZONE! Quick, easy, make ahead, cheap, and DELICIOUS!… Did I get everything in there…??
This recipe does it all. Except maybe the dishes… you’ll have to do those yourself… or enlist someone to help you.
Just tempt them with these calzones… they’ll have no choice but to grant you a night off from dish-duty!
These are EASY because I don’t have you make your own dough… I experimented with two store-bought doughs and was happy with both of them. They yielded slightly different results but BOTH were tasty!
