Truffled Three Cheese Flatbread

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Home Chef. All opinions are 100% mine.

Delicious Truffled Three Cheese Flatbread with grape tomatoes and arugula!  Ready in under 15 minutes! Only 650 calories per serving!

Matthew is back to school this week.  No, not as a student, but he teaches classes at FIT and SVA in NYC.  Not to brag as a proud wife, but he’s a awesome teacher. I know this because I see the looks the students give him at end of the year shows, and the followup emails that last for years after the students leave his class.     Earlier this week after back to back classes that wouldn’t bring it home until 10PM,  I wanted to make a dinner that I knew that he would love.  So I made him these Truffled Three Cheese Flatbread which can also be described as white pizza (no tomato sauce).   It was a big hit! He loved it!

This is a sponsored recipe post written by me on behalf of Minute® Rice.  This Corn and Tomato Rice Salad is perfect for dinner, picnics and potlucks.  With it’s Mexican inspired flavor it’ll be a hit with everyone!  And even better, it’s ready in 15 minutes!

I’m in love with this rice salad.   I took a version of this recipe to a potluck last week and I’m proud to say it was the first dish that was empty.     This is a great fresh ingredient recipe that lightens up dinner.    You can serve it as a side dish or a main dish, preferably served alongside some fresh bread.  What I especially love about it is that due to the lime juice, crushed red pepper flakes and cilantro it has a Mexican flavor added to it.  Anyone else love Mexican flavored everything?  This salad is so good you could even fill up a burrito with it and call it dinner.

And because I love fresh recipes that are quick to make, this salad is ready to serve in 15 minutes.

The main ingredient is Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice so you’ll have great-tasting fluffy rice in just 10 minutes.   Brown Rice is a nutritious option as it has similar nutritional values to regular long cooking brown rice, but it’s done in 1/4 the time.  I love brown rice because of it’s versatility – you can use in cheesy casseroles or light lunch options.    One tip to get the tastiest brown rice is instead of boiling in water, try vegetable broth.

Meatless Cheesy Taco Casserole

Meatless Cheesy Taco Casserole – yum! By substituting black beans and corn for ground meat, we can make a delicious Meatless Cheesy Taco Casserole that will become a family favorite!

Hi everyone – I hope you’re having a great week!  I’m typing this post from the glamorous back row of a Boltbus that’s traveling back to NYC from Washington DC (more about that next week! I went to the White House! OMGZ.) I’m sorry it’s been a little quiet around here but with building the garden on the land, R+R work, writing/shooting, and some travel (for work) this week has been tough.   I also have to go to the accountant for my taxes tomorrow so this week is super rough. 😉   I ate 2 donuts today. I feel so guilty. 

This Meatless Cheesy Taco Casserole is one of our favorite dinner recipes.  It’s one of those dishes that you don’t get sick of having multiple times a week (we love it that much).  Since going vegetarian, I’ve had to figure out how to change my recipes and that’s what I did for this casserole. Instead of ground beef, I’m adding in black beans and frozen corn.  Mix that with some elbow macaroni, fresh tomatoes, green peppers, tomato soup, taco seasoning mix and taco cheese and you have the perfect weeknight meal!  I don’t want to call this recipe healthy, because it does have the word “cheesy” in the title, but the recipe only calls for 3/4 cups of cheese and if you want you can even add less.   My husband who still eats meat (but hardly does because I’m the chef of the house) loves this meal and doesn’t miss the ground beef at all!  You know it’s a winner when he requests Meatless Cheesy Taco Casserole every week!

So without further ado…here’s our favorite taco casserole!

Mexican Cheddar Cheese Dip

EASY MEXICAN Cheddar Cheese Dip made with 1 bag of shredded cheese, milk and other simple ingredients.  This delicious dip can be served with tortilla chips, crackers, vegetables or on top of nachos! It’s always the hit of the party!

Cheese.

You either love it or you love it.   Have you ever met a person who doesn’t love it? Once I met a person who doesn’t like pizza and I ran away from them.

Cheese dip is one of those things that I love, no matter what time of the year or where I’m at.  You’ll find cheese dips at pot lucks, friends dinner parties or fancy art openings.  No matter what the event, you’ll find me at the snacks table swimming in that cheese sauce (not literally, the bowl isn’t big enough).

Recently my husband asked if I could stop including cheese in some of our dinners.  I looked at him and said “What type of monster are you?”. To satisfy him I added some broccoli along with the cheese.  See, I can compromise.

With a craving for a cheesy snack during a movie night I threw this together in minutes and served it with various foods to dip.  You have your typical tortilla chips and crackers but you also have your vegetables for those wanting a fresh option.  Because nothing says delicious more than a piece of cauliflower smothered in cheese, right?
