Hint: flank steak is a tough piece of meat because it is so lean, the longer you marinate the more tender your meat will be, so try to marinate it overnight.
In this version of mashed potatoes, we bake first rather than boil - perfect when you're already using the oven for an accompanying roast. Baking the potatoes before mashing also yields a somewhat airier, fluffier texture.
These homemade nuggets are crunchy, juicy, and delicious. Plus, they're baked, instead of fried. Goes great with the oven baked fries! Hint: Honey mustard reduced-calorie buttermild dressing, sweet and sour sauce, or dijon mustard are great for dipping!

This pasta has only a few ingredients, but together they make an incredibly satisfying supper. The dish requires nothing more than a big green salad as accompaniment.
Love this dish for its short cooking time. Just add a green salad or seasonal vegetable and the meal is complete. Included are some variations to keep the recipe interesting in case you find yourself making it over and over again.
Notes: The heat from the hot pasta partly cooks the eggs. If you are concerned about eating raw or undercooked eggs, use 1/2 cup pasteurized eggs in lieu of fresh.

This dough makes enough for two pizzas, so you can freeze half the dough for another day. If you freeze it, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight, or on the counter for 1 1/2 hours. Unlike other bread dough, pizza dough needs to rise only once. After rising, simply punch it down, then let it rest for 15 minutes before rolling or stretching to the desired shape. If you like, you can let the dough rise in a floured zip-close freezer bag in the refrigerator overnight. You'll find it easiest to roll out or stretch dough when its room temperature.
