Soft Pretzels

April 15, 2011

These super delicious pretzels are cheap and easy to make – most of the ingredients are right in your pantry. You can also do just about anything with the dough. You can wrap it around hotdogs for home-made pretzel dogs. Or, sprinkle on brown sugar and cinnamon. Or you can dip the pretzels in marinara sauce (a healthier choice). I’ve also included a recipe for a sweet mustard sauce.

Baked Macaroni

April 8, 2011

During rush week, my sorority usually put me in charge of “Family Dinner Night”, which consisted of a nice, comforting home-cooked meal for homesick members and rushees. I always made baked macaroni, because everyone loved it and it fed a lot of people. The original recipe is from Ina Garten, but I decided to make my own cheaper and less buttery version. It takes a bit of time and effort to make, but it’s so much better than the Kraft instant stuff.

Turkey Lasagna

This simple, yet delicious lasagna recipe is from a good friend, who isn’t fond of cooking and never has enough time in the day. To make it healthier, I like to substitute the ground beef with ground turkey.
