108. French bread pizza

Not your traditional red-sauce pizza, these pizzas have ham, Gruyere (or Swiss) and thyme on top of a honey mustard sauce. Pop them in the oven on a yummy slice of French bread, and you have a pretty good meal.

I served these with a salad and honey mustard dressing – the same salad in the recipe.

When God created the avocado, He knew what He was doing. It is the perfect texture and has just the right flavor to make any meal better.

BP requested these yummy sandwiches, which I had made once before a couple of years ago.

These sandwiches are fresh tasting with a little bit of a kick from the jalapenos, red onion and pepper jack cheese. Definitely a good, fresh meal to enjoy prior to three days of Thanksgiving lunches and suppers coming up this week!

Recipe source: Rachael Ray’s “Express Lane Meals” or print it from her website

When I decided I needed to learn how to cook a couple of years after BP and I had been married (spaghetti and frozen pizza get really old), I picked up Rachael Ray’s “Express Lane Meals” and started on page one.

Luckily, it gave me the incentive I needed to continue experimenting in the kitchen, and the recipe has remained one of my favorite quick meals (though, when I started teaching myself to cook, even this one was not quick for me!).

This also is the recipe that BP can blame on my love and devotion to the classic Italian combination of tomatoes, garlic, basil and mozzarella. YUM. If it were up to me, we would eat some version of this combination much, much more than we do now. But, BP is a good guy, and so I do try to throw in variety for him.

67. pork soft tacos

Recipe source: originally from a print issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray, but now it’s online

This is our go-to taco recipe in the summer. As soon as the cilantro from our garden was ready, it went into this dish. And next week, we’re doing it again! And you know if I’m making a recipe twice in two weeks, it has to be good.

Little Brother loves this recipe, so we always invite him over when we make it. And next week, I’m also inviting my cousin and her daughters over because she asked about it last time I saw her. I’d made it for her about a year ago, and it’s that delicious that people remember it!

So go, cut some cilantro from your garden and eat.
