Dinner Divas Week 92
We’re kicking off the week with Shepherd’s Pie from The Speckled Palate. Talk about a delicious and comforting dinner, this is it! If you happen to be watching your carbs, you could swap the mashed potato topping for mashed cauliflower and still enjoy this tasty supper.
Next up is My Imperfect Kitchen’s The Kitchen Sink Quiche. I love a good quiche and this my friends, is a good quiche. If you prep the ingredients the day before, this will be even easier to throw together for dinner. The leftovers make a great breakfast or lunch the next day too. This is a meal you can eat any time fo the day.
Roasted Chicken and Vegetable Sheet Pan Supper from Pook’s Pantry is our midweek meal. This is one of my favorite weeknight dinners. It’s quick, easy, nutritious and customizable, so I can use whatever I have already. I always have an abundance of fresh veggies, which makes this an easy meal for us. The problem with having all those veggies is that sometimes, I have random bits and half empty containers that need to get used up before they go bad. This is exactly the time to make a sheet pan supper. Dump all those vegetable on a pan and roast them!
The next recipe on this week’s dinner divas is from Comfortably Domestic. Her Prosciutto Broccolini Pizza would be a crowd pleaser for sure. Making pizza at home is so easy, especially if you buy the dough from your local pizzeria! The key to making a chewy, crisp crust is baking it on a good pizza stone. It really makes the crust delicious and it’s useful for many other things as well, so it’s a solid investment for about $35.
Finally, we send off the week with Pastry Chef Online’s Polish Sausage with Apples, Onions, and Butternut Squash. I think the universe is trying to tell me that I need to make this, because just last night, I stumbled upon my spaetzle maker. Seriously. I was looking for something else in the pantry and BAM, there it was. This is a great meal for chilly evenings.
Dinner Divas Extras
This week, we have two scrumptious extras. The first is Gluten Free Chocolate Fudge Cake from Comfortably Domestic. I don’t know about you, but we almost never eat a real dessert. That’s going to change. Just look at this cake, it’s chocolatey perfection. Weekend baking, I’m looking at you.
Finally, we are wrapping it up with Tropical Coconut Bread from Pook’s Pantry. I use a folded loaf pan, which means that the corners are folded and reinforced. These are the type of pans we use in professional kitchens. They hold up to lots of use and a fair amount of abuse. I’ve been making this coconut bread for about 5 or 6 years and every time I make it, it disappears within a few days. This last time, I kept half of it wrapped up and sliced off one piece a day to see how long it would stay fresh. I got to the one week mark before I ran out of bread and it was still delicious. That, for me, is a major selling point.
